NRA Gun of the Week: Rock Island Armory XT 22 Pistol

It took a few years, but Rock Island Armory is at full production with the XT 22—a .22 WMR-chambered, M1911-style rimfire pistol that feeds from a single-column magazine and operates via an interesting delayed-blowback system. And with capacity of 15 rounds, the XT 22 provides connoisseurs of the M1911 platform with an inexpensive cross-over training pistol. Check out our NRA Gun of the Week video to learn more about this long-awaited M1911 variant.
