It never fails, when I'm least expecting it something interesting comes across my desk. When I worked in retail, one of the best selling semi-auto handguns in .22LR was the Ruger MK series. They’re reliable, and they look and shoot great.

Ever hear of a company called Ares Defense Systems?Yeah, I hadn’t either until today, but after seeing one of their products I'm definitely going to get to know them.They make an upper receiver assembly for your Ruger MK-1, MK-II, MK-III or 22/45 pistols. Basically, it turns your handgun into a sweet little carbine, the Ares-22RCU, with a full tac-rail and comfortable grip. This thing is aneat littleplinker. Watch me prove my point here.

I went on their Web site and looked for more info on the gun, but the only thing I came up with were big red bold letters saying, “Coming Soon.”I’m not sure what the retail price is, but the fun you can have with this gun is priceless.When I get some more information about the company and the conversion kit, I’ll let you know.
