I am unsure of the stress that the .50 would put on the lower. There was a case last year in LA where a conversion blew the bolt clean out the upper and the firing pin half way thru the back of the upper.
Kid just about lost his hand.

Why go half ass on a .50 go big or go home.

Exactly, if you can't afford safety, don't halfass it.

Yes the barrel is threaded and the screw hole for mounting the sight was moved back to reattach it.

This is the one I use the most for practice.



If you want to increase your shooting ability, put 500 rnds a week through one of these and you'll notice your skill getting better. Then when you get some more money, thread the barrel and then throw a can on it.
I see your point, im not a huge fan of the /45's though. Too plastic-ey. I shot a mark I a while back, and it was really really fun, so i thought i'd just get a mark II target (thats the one with the bull barrell right?) when i get some cash saved.

I have a MkIII 22/45 and my buddy has a MkII. Great target pistols.

Im looking at possibly getting a FN FNP-9. Anyone have experience with these?

The point of the 22/45 is that it simulates the angle of a 1911 or most .45acp. So that when you shoot the 22/45, it feels the same as shooting the 1911.

When I hold a 1911 in my hand, it just feels right, when I hold the 22/45 it also feels right.

I have all the edges smoothed on the black one and the whole surface where my hand would be touching has been gone over and is not "smooth" like plastic smooth anymore, so it feels a bit better than one out of the box.

They also sell grips that will change the way it feels.

Yes, I believe the targets are the bull barrel models.

I prefer the slab side (The black one in the picture), which is longer but the sides are milled down to reduce the extra weight, but they are harder to come by.

IF you see one on gunbroker or auctionarms if you have the money, you can bid on it and I'll have it transfered in, just give me a heads up.

Right now on gunbroker there are a ton of 22/45 that will go for well less than $300, even just over $200. It looks like there are less of the "non-22/45" pistols listed and they are selling for a bit more than the the 22/45.

I learned to shoot pistols on a Ruger. Always had a soft spot for them. I got to shoot one of the 'Amphibian(?)' models with the aftermarket integral suppressor. It was pretty sweet.

I wish it didn't have a 1911 grip angle, otherwise I'd buy one in a heart beat. I really want something I can use to practice to save on ammo for my glock. Even though I do reload 9mm, I'm still too broke to be shooting much.

on backpage not too long ago, there were quite a few Mark II's, even a few targets for what seemed like a reasonable deal.... but then again, i had to block backpage from my browser so i wouldnt spend all my dam money dam you money!!

What about the standard ruger grip?



More along the lines of a glock/9mm angle, an aftermarket grip would bring it even closer.

Hey guys - I figured I should start my next build so it will be ready when I am able to do things again... Its been a while and I know stuff has changed since late '09 when I had my last AR. Here is a general list of the stuff I am considering. I would love your input.

All Prices ESTIMATED after 10% tax. (Might buy online and cut some of the costs in half)

TOTALS: 1748 (Rifle)
1888 (Tools and Rifle)
349 (Accessories+Tools)
2097 (ALL) ********TOOLS********
50 AR-15 M4 Barrel Wrench(shooters vault)
10 AR-15 M4 Stock Wrench(shooters vault)
40 Daniel Defense Lite Rail Wrench(guns etc, chandler)
40 Brass punch set(dillon)
Tools Estimated total: 140
*********************
*****UPPER PARTS*****
533 LMT Standard Upper(shooters vault)
175 LMT standard BCG(shooters vault)
360 Daniel Defense Lite rail 10" (SGC) (Will go bigger IF I go beyond 16" barrel)
35 Rock River Arms Charging Handle(shooters Vault)
70 Vltor Low Profile gas block(SGC $60, if better at SV, get there)
Upper Estimated Total: 1173
*********************
*****LOWER PARTS*****
220 Firebird Reciever W/parts no stock(Sgc)
200 Vltor E-MOD Stock KIT(unknown)
30 ERGO AR15 Suregrip (Unknown)*
25 Magpul Enhanced Trigger Gaurd(SGC)*

ACCESSORIES EST TOTAL: 209
*********************
***UNDECIDED PARTS***
100 Iron sights(highest for both)
(would rather have the Irons on a 45 deg. so I can flip to the side and skip Optics if CQ,)
UNDECIDED EST TOTAL: 100
*********************

I am still undecided if I want to go 16+" or if I want to buy local and go SBR. However, IF I do plan to go beyond 16", I am considering the magpul prs stock.

I still need to consider Optics - But I am leaning towards an ACOG.

Thoughts?

Dude I know a Daniel Defense dealer. My buddy got a sick upper through him, complete, for 850. Had the midlength cold hammer forged barrel, Lite rail, sights, rail covers and a forward pistol grip.

Also look around for a BCM blemish lower. Same dude got one with the VLTOR stock for 300. Only had a small scratch on it.

lol. I had that backpack water gun. Fully loaded it knocked you over... too heavy - but it was the Ultimate weapon in a water gun fight!

Chase -

Thanks for the info. I've been looking over DD's website and found this:

http://www.danieldefense.com/?page=s...product_id=292

My ideal weapon is as light weight as possible while retaining full ability to hit targets @ around 200 yds.

Price might still be too high... wonder if I can build this for less?

I can get you that upper with a Lite (lighter and more expensive than the pictured Omega X) rail for 850. Then spend 350 or 400 on a good lower and you have that rifle for around 1200 or so.

Thats the same upper, with the Lite rail, my buddy has. insanelt awesome rifle.
