I've been shooting MK I & II's for years and I only clean them approx once a year or when accuracy or reliability is effected.

The MK III has some safety BS that I've heard can cause some issues n require more frequent cleaning. I'd remove it ASAP.

Install Quartzen's Accuracy Kit ($90) - will fix trigger etc. and you are good to go for a few years. (new sights n grip are optional) once you have maximized this platform - you will be ready for Dedicated Target Gun like SW 41 or HS Victor.

Just run a snake down the barrel and wipe everything down at the range. Min 3 mags per gun and get a $3 reloading tool to save your thumbs.

Does anyone know of any other .22LR semi-autos that are as solidly built and accurate as the Mk III? I love the handling of the Mk III as well and would like something as similar as possible, but without all the cleaning hassles.

I've handled a Mosquito and hated it. I've heard the Buckmark isn't made in the US anymore. I've fired a Woodsman, but don't know about cleaning it. I'd prefer to buy new, but would buy used to get a quality US made .22LR. Any suggestions?
Oh come on now, it's not really that bad.
Most times I'll run few patches down the barrel and take a Q-tip w/ Hoppe's to the bolt face and rear of the barrel. Add a Q-tip with a bit of oil for the surfaces that rub and shazam! It's GTG for the next trip.
Even when it's in need of a thorough de-gunking, pulling them apart isn't really that hard. You just need to keep in practice.
Or , You can order one of these:

I almost bought one, but I decided it wasn't really worth the trouble. YMMV.

Just bought a Buckmark a month or so ago. Says Made In the U.S.A. on the gun, so I don't know where you heard they weren't made in the US. After tweaking the adjustments and adding a williams sight, its just as accurate as my Mark III Hunter, plus its easy to disassemble.

Stick with the MK III, when it is time to clean it just put on some soft music, light a few candles and talk softly to it as you gently rub away the dirt and grime from use. Take your time and enjoy the experience of getting to know this gun and all of it's little quirks and nooks and crannies, become one with the Hoppes #9.


Sorry I just couldn't help it.

LOL! I know, I just need to put on my big boy pants and get over it until I can afford a Model 41. Thanks again for all the help guys.

I almost forgot, I didn't hear anyone mention the Colt Woodsman. What's up with the Colt?

Production ceased in 1977. Like other old Colts, nice ones command premium prices. If you're willing to hunt one down & spend the cash, you'll probably be a happy camper.

They're great handguns. I've got a 1928 Woodsman and a 1949 Woodsman Match Target. Love the Match Target! Also have a Huntsman which is another really good Colt. The Match Target I put up there right beside the Model 41, both are highly accurate and well handling firearms.

Get out your manual out, READ IT and take your Ruger apart, then put it back together,

Repeat 25-30 times.

It's a little tricky at first, until you "get the hang of it" but it's not hard.

Or do what i did and trade up to a Browning.

Looking at the manual right now and I'm scared! Looks like I need to research the Woodsman. What does a Match Target and a standard Woodsman go for?
