When is a rifle not a rifle? When the manufacturer whittles down the features of a long gun to produce a super cool handgun! Whether it’s to build a pistol chambered in a rifle cartridge or just because it looks great, rifle-action handguns provide a unique shooting experience. Please note that all of the guns shown here meet Federal regulations because they were built as handguns at the factory.
A reliable handgun chambered to fire the inexpensive and plentiful .22 Long Rifle cartridge is truly a treasure to own. Though most .22 pistols follow standard design, several models on the market today allow you to stand out in a crowd. And, best of all, many of these exotic pistols are more affordable than you might expect.
Colt has released a family of pistols—the Combat Elite Series.
