I was at Bass Pro today an they had a 22/45 blue with a 4" tapered bbl. Rugers site dont show they make one with a tapered bbl an I cant find a picture of one online. Is this something new or an oddball?

UPDATE: sorry for the bad pix, camera phone again.

Ok, I called Ruger today and they said Ruger never made a 22/45 with tapered bbl, its brand new in box at Bass Pro. What do you all think, oddball???

Well, if it IS brand new in the box then looking at the end label will tell you what that serial number shipped as.

What is the cat # on the label? If the serial # on the label matches what's on the gun and the cat # indicates it's a tapered bbl then all is well. :)

Just had an idea...if you have a cell phone, bring it and take a picture of the end label, e-mail that to yourself, and post the pic here. That'll get you all the details you'll need regarding this bugger.

I've had a couple of 22/45 guns with both a 4.75" tapered and 5.5" tapered barrels. Both MkII and stainless however, not blued.

Bar-stock barrels are boring.

Nothing to go crazy about, sorry jumped the "gun".
