I have a 1978 "Standard" which is a Mark 1 with fixed sights, I love it. I shoots very well, is made well, and is a fun gun to shoot. The only thing I have a hassle with is finding good mags for it as they changed the design on them for the later guns. I am not sure if the change was for between the 1 and 2 series, or the Mark 3 series.

Thank you. I've never seen that before.

Volquartsen makes what they call an extended mag release for the MK II. I call it a paddle because it is so big. Enclosed is a photo from VQ's website and a photo of my MK II with the corners of the paddle release rounded off.

Found this photo going through my old albums. I sold this one to my father in law a few years ago. You don't see too many MKII's like this!

actually yeah i have, a few years back anyway my brother & dad both had identical stainless mark II's with the 9 inch barrel, just like that one. those things were more accurate than my first 22 rifle.

we still have my dad's but my brother's was stolen about 7 or 8 years back, sadly it's still out in the wind somewhere...

Hmmm......I think I would like that. But I have a history of trying to put a new part on my Mark II and it taking juuuust about a month for me to get the job done. Anyone else would have gotten it done in an hour or so. There's no way on God's green earth I'm going to try to put another new part on my Mark II.

And how important is a fast magazine change on a target 22 pistol?
Heel magazine releases do make it easier to retain magazines.

Take off the grips and you will see how easy it is to change the mag release. The factory mag release is almost unusable for me.
