New From FightLite Industries: STEP-22 Receivers and Integrally Suppressed Ruger Receivers


FightLite Industries is a marque of ARES Defense. They just recently announced their new STEP-22 line of receivers for Ruger’s .22LR pistol line. Their STEP-22K (photo below) and STEP-22KT models are standard replacements for Rugers’s Mk I, II and III and 22/45. In fact Ares honcho Geoffrey Herring tells me, their receiver makes the gun lighter than Ruger’s own 22/45 Lite. But their new star — which is due to start shipping July 1 — is the integrally suppressed STEP-22 receiver (above). The suppressed upper will MSRP at $699. The STEP-22K MSRP’s at $369 and STEP-22KT (threaded) is $10 more. We’ll be getting a suppressed version to review, so watch this space . . .

    I can see the appeal of the suppressed model, but what’s the point of just replacing the receiver? So you can double the cost of the gun for an ounce or two of weight savings and FlightLite’s exclusive WTMFR design (Way Too Many F-cking Rails)? Pass.

      Gecko45 would carry three of these at his oh-so-dangerous job. That’s how seriously we should take these visual abominations.

    And they no longer make it so it doesn’t even matter.
