Though they do balance different, in my mind, practicing with one is also practice for shooting the other.

Milled from aluminum barstock, they’re some of the best pistol mags I’ve ever worked with. Yes, they will set you back a few bucks, but it’s cheaper than going to a match and having problems and the resulting frustration and cursing!

The Ruger platform is probably the most proven 22 pistol designs on the market and this gun holds up the tradition. I had to pick this gun up and start shooting it halfway through the Steel Challenge in 2012, and after some of the times I turned in, I’m seriously considering making this one my primary…
