Ruger 10/22 Zombie Killer Lime Green & Black Limited Edition

Ruger makes a series of their very popular .22 Long Rifles. I already owned one Ruger I purchased back in the 80’s. I wanted to get another one just because they are such well made .22 Long Rifles. I already have magazines for this brand.

So, I figured I would also get a zombie themed one as well, because honestly, if there is a zombie outbreak and they are the slow zombies like in the Walking Dead, a .22 would be pretty sure bet as a gun to be used to clear out those pesky zombies hanging around the gate to your fortified prison that the Governor is trying to get into! So, we all know that those slow, stupid and often surprisingly crazy, brainless zombies can be a pain and should always be thinned out as they amass themselves trying to get a bite of your human flesh! So now I have a means to cheaply thin them out without using my larger calibers.

Now, if they are fast zombies, like the ones in 28 Day’s, then a 10/22 is not the rifle of choice, at least not to try and stop fast moving zombies. It could still be used to snipe from high, secure locations. But using it as your primary battle rifle to cruise from one location to another is probably not what you want to do. Aside from zombie killing, this rifle is also good for killing small food animals and it is easier to carry large amount of ammo, even though you can’t reload them. .22 LR Ammo might be some of the easiest ammo to get because a lot of houses might have a .22LR while not having larger calibers in their houses.

Glock Model 22 Generation 2

Glock Model 22 Generation 2 Customized Guy Fawkes .40CAL

My customized Glock Model 22 .40 caliber that I had modified and Cerakote work done to it by WeaponWorx. I had stippling work done to increase grip texture. Along with the normal stippling I had them add the Guy Fawkes mask into the stippling and on the slide with white Cerakote. The grip was also reduced to my hand size and finger grooves added for better grip and hand positioning. The base was then coated in Cerakote Graphite Black and finished. The slide was custom coated in Fire Engine Red with Silver and White splatter. I saw a gun coated similarly on the internet and I liked it so much I wanted one like it, but I wanted it done in the Guy Fawkes style instead of the Punisher as the one I saw the original Glock was done in. I have to say when the original owner of the other gun saw mine, he got very upset. Apparently he doesn’t know that imitation is the sincerest form of flattery. Either that or he was upset that this one looks much better than his, I don’t know, don’t care. I thought his looked cool and I wanted one that was better. I guess he forgot that most guns are copies of someone else gun. If I put a Wilson Combat barrel on my gun, it doesn’t mean I am the only one with that barrel.

I have to say that after owning this gun since it came out, I love it even more now that is has been modified to fit my hand and it is no longer the old dull black!

 

Let’s take a look at some of the basic specifications:

  • Caliber: .40S&W (although Glock likes to leave off the “S&W” part)
  • Overall Length: 7.32 inches
  • Overall Height: 5.43 inches
  • Overall Width: 1.18 inches
  • Weight = 34 ounces (loaded)
  • Barrel length = 4.5 inches

And perhaps the three most important:

  • Capacity = 15+1 (optional 17 round magazines are available)
  • Sight Radius = 6.5 inches
  • Trigger Pull = 5.5 lbs.

 
All right…addressing the importance of those last three:

  1. Capacity: While I am a fan of the government model and therefore take no issue with a weapon that uses a seven-round magazine (+1 in the chamber), in today’s law enforcement community a magazine capacity of at least ten rounds is essential if you want to compete in the market. With many 9mm pistols holding fifteen rounds per magazine and some competitor .40 caliber weapons holding as few as eleven rounds per magazine, the Glock 22 15 rounds per magazine capacity is a strength. Additionally, with the seeming increase in active shooter incidents and the potential reality of a looming on-the-ground terrorist attack, more bullets are always better.
  2. Sight Radius: Small aiming errors can result in big misses at the target. The longer a weapon’s sight radius, the less chance exists to make aiming mistakes. A 6.5 inch sight radius –the distance between the front and rear sight–is significant on a handgun. As a comparison, the sight radius on my Springfield Armory 1911 pistol is also 6.5 inches.
  3. Trigger pull: 5.5 lbs. On Glock’s competition guns you can get a 3.5 pound trigger pull. Why lighter on a competition gun? Because when you have to apply more pressure to the trigger, you run a proportionately greater chance of pushing your sight alignment/sight picture out of whack. Many double-action guns have an initial trigger pull of eight pounds or more. With a consistent 5.5 lbs. trigger pull, the Glock pistols provide a repeated even trigger pull time after time.
