They start around $150 and this one one cost about $230 though so that may be a bit over your price range but they are damn nice sights. This one is great for bullseye shooting. The "dot" can be adjusted for size and brightness or replaced with a circle or cross hair.

I bought my 22/45 (model 10158) for just under $300. Yes it is a polymer lower but it's still a mark 3.

Short range report.

I took my 22/45 and my SIG 1911 to the range today. My sister joined with her buckmark lite and shield. I shot them all well.
My 22/45 ate everything I fed it; federal bulk, Remington thunderbolt and of course CCI mini mags all without a flaw. Not the case with the Buckmark, which had a few failure to feed issues with both the federal bulk as well as the thunderbolt.
I was impressed with its accuracy as was my sis. I shot a few 4" groups at 10 and 15 yards and surprisingly, I was combat accurate at 25 yards. The Buckmark was giving me the same groups but i didn't stretch it out to 25 yards. That 22/45 is quite a sweet shooter. I shot even better with my 1911 at 15 yards than I normally do, not see what to chalk that up to, but I double punched holes 3 times. It turned out to be a short range session since I started getting an ocular migraine and couldn't even find the front sight after a while.
I gave it the Ruger once over with a few swabs of CLP and ran a boresnake through the barrel several times, for now that is as far as I'm going to go. I might just keep doing that until I get some jams then look to strip it and give it a thorough cleaning.
Overall, I am impressed with its accuracy as well as its functionality. I am glad I bought it, it will provide me a great platform to practice with and will be a great pistol to use as an introduction to shooting for my kids. This is something we can all handle.

This pistol rock solid. So far one FTF ammo related. Other than that very reliable and accurate. Before my last range session I got the hang of striping and reassembling this pistol. Once you know the method it's a breeze, literally. You just have to remember the process. Now I think I want to add an optic...

DRV, see my reply to you in our other thread! I much prefer the 22/45 to the Std. MKII/III series. I find the Grip to be much more comfortable on the 22/45 then the MKIII.

Same here. I too found the grip angle on the mk II/iii aggressive as well. And it's a great primer for using a 1911 too. Not sure which thread you're referring to. Have to find it.

i paid $279 for mine about almost two years ago. mine is the Mk III 22/45 Target Model with the 5.5" barrel. very nice price. and yes it has the polymer lower.

i too prefer the grip angle on the 22/45 better than the regular MkIII models. it's just a bit more comfortable to shoot.

I have been finding my 22/45 super reliable . So far it's eaten everything I've fed it with no pistol related issues. I was worried if have to feed it only mini mags but it shot every type of ammo I have. The thunderbolts are a bit dirtier and I would stay away from those but other than that; everything else shot flawlessly out of the ruger.
