Excel Arms 22WMR Accelerator

Weird name.. cool looking, yet fun pistol  thumb1's a toy... from the local auction.. it's big, it's heavy, has a huge grip.. so I instantly loved it when I fondled it, it's made from some kind of fancy stainless steel, high strength corrosion resistant 17-4.. ok, so it won't rust and maybe I cant break it. The 22WMR is not know for it's joy of being used in a semiauto, or for it's accuracy like a .22lr...but, today I shoved a box of CCI Maximag and some Hornady V-Max through it, it never skipped a beat, and within the range I was at, it left neat little .22 caliber holes in everything. I need some more time, but, I think there is something to work with accracy wise here.. Through the years, these pistols were also made in 5.7 FN and 17HMR as well, 2 more fairly accurate rounds.

Ok..back to the size.. the barrel is 8 1/2 inch long and .875 in dia with a target style crown. Total weight is on my scale 54 ounces. Does it feel it in your hands, no, this big girl wears her weight exceptionally well, and balances almost perfect. There is just enough muzzle weight to offset the minuscule muzzle flip you would get when it's fired. Another thing, which I a California thing, it holds 9 rounds.....guess 10 is 1 too many, as to what I've seen, it's the only semiauto 22wmr handgun legal there. Also the fit and finish is better than I expected, it's not loose or rattly like some cheaper handguns can be.

See... it is big when given something to compare's large...especially considering it's just a .22 :)

Holy cow, that is s big boy!  :o

Makes the Desert Eagle look like a compact Glock  rofl

Interesting design with that grip placed forward, I imagine to help with balance.
