I like the old-style Contender forestock. .30 Herrett. There's a cartridge you don't see every day. I enjoyed reading Herrett's and Milek's articles. No-nonsense stuff.

I always liked Bob Milek's articles. Then I started comparing some of his loads with book.

I think I got mine for around $250.00 but can't remember where. You can order them online as no FFL is required since it's not a complete gun. It is very accurate and you can swich from .22 to .45 in about a minute. I carry both barrels when camping.

They aren't hard to find. There is one in a shop just a short distance from here, I think the tab on that one was around $275. They will work on any standard 1911, not just on a Kimber. I don't have one, already own several .22 handguns and don't need another, but if I were in the market that'd definitely be a great way-to-go.

I would not mind unloading my .22 Ruger to Trixie.

But only if he rides here all the way to NM

That looks interesting but I'm curious. What did they do that makes it so much better than the regular Ruger and how much did it cost?

I won't lie here, the barrel was an impulse buy. I had read about them but never thought about buying one. One of the local shops had one on the shelf and I gave it a look. The main selling point for me is the weight. It only weighs 7oz. My Mark III was a target model with the 5.5" barrel. With the new barrel it is a totally different pistol. The barrel is threaded so I can add a comp or a can. I haven't done any real testing yet but the groups look to be tighter than the stock barrel (if that is possible).


Cost of Ruger Mark III Target: $315
Cost of TS 6" threaded barrel: $315

It's an addiction.


I have a buddy who is Ruger Mark I,II,III crazy. He owns several. I handed it to him and I thought he was going to have an accident there on the spot.

I've got my dad's pre-WWII Colt Ace 22LR model 1911 - he used it to win some pistol championships when he was in the Navy at Georgia Tech in 1945. It looks and feels like a regular 1911 but shoots 22LR ammo. I can also switch a few parts and fire 45ACP - neat gun.
