      This is the gun i bought. I called them up and paid money order. Gunbroker can kiss my arse. Dont know much about .22s, i currently have 2 .22 rifles and decided to get a handgun. I also read that the newer ruger mark III had issues. so i went with and older one.

        good gun....can be a bit of a PITA to put back together after field stripping.

        very accurate....I squirrel hunt with one of mine...I got a few of them.....

        The only issue I have with my both holsters I have for my MkIIs woll pop the mag in the MkIII.

          I think you will be quite happy with your MK II purchase, as with any 22LR firearm DON'T DRY FIRE IT. Also magazines between the MK I, II and III are NOT interchangeable. You will find it to be quite an accurate shooter. Full disassembly and reassembly can be a PITA as has been previously mentioned. Use caution.

          Early Ruger MK III models had some reported issues with the loaded chamber indicator resting on the rim of the cartridge possibly causing it to fire if struck/dropped, Ruger has since fixed this issue. I plan on purchasing a stainless Mark III Hunter with fluted barrel myself.

          The MK series of 22LR pistols owes it's heritage (Action) to the Japanese Nambu series of autoloaders. Not the German Luger which it resembles. Recently picked up one in great condition along with an Arisaka to add to my collection.

          Good luck with your latest purchase. BB.

            Great pistol, one of the first semi autos I learned to shot with.

              The Ruger MKll is one of my favorite 22 caliber pistols and I have owned high standard, smith & wesson, walthers and others. Just like with any gun taking it down will take some practice, it is harder to take down then a 22A but not that bad. I own a MKll gov target model in ss I have installed some volquartsen parts and it is a tack driver. I have fired all makes of 22 rounds with out any troubles. Mine has one other cool feature; it is internally threaded for a suppressor so it has no visible threaded stud. I do like the mag release on the newer models but that is it.

                Excellent choice! I've owned a Stainless Standard Model Mark II for almost 20 years, and it has fired thousands of rounds of all kinds of .2LR ammo, with no problems whatsoever. About 9 years ago, I replaced the rear sight with an adjustable sight and had my gunsmith make a new serrated ramp front's probably the most accurate firearm I have ever owned.

                    It is easier to get the lever down when reassembling the pistol if you hold the gun upside down.
