    I’m trying to figure out a use for a pic rail on a target pistol. Do they make rail-mounted barrel weights?

      Someone probably does, but I don’t think they mean “target pistol” in such a traditional way. I doubt anybody is going to win any bullseye matches with this thing. Rather, it is a more “target-ish” pistol, much like a factory stock bull-barreled Ruger pistol. Without upgrades to the barrel & trigger, it’s still basically a nice plinker.

        I think you’re right. Still, it does appear to be well-made and is pretty attractive-looking to boot.

      They should have put a rail on the top of the slide, or better yet, on the top of a fixed barrel, not on the bottom of the frame.

      If they put aggressive textured grips on it, and called it a “Tactical” model, that would make a little more sense. Questionable utility, but at least it would make more sense.

    Lol it’s a nice little .22LR 1911 plinker, I own one, but throwing some grips and an adjustable sight does not make it a target gun.
