Agreed. If you follow the procedures, Ruger's are not the PITA folks make them out to be. The older High Standard .22s are AOK but only available on the used market...

I would recommend looking at the Ruger MKIII it's a tack driver alright and with the Red Dot the dot covers the tack at 25yrds perfect

I'm also a fan of the Ruger and have a Mark I, II and III. The other choices are good too but definitely add Ruger to your list.

Got my Mark I in 1976 then the other two over the years. Nothing's broke yet, they're tough guns. And once you learn how to break them down and reassemble you're good to go. Plenty of videos on the web on how to do it.

I would suggest checking out the Ruger target pistols or the Buckmarks. The Rugers ain't hard to disassemble/reassemble IF you go according to the directions EXACTLY. I have 2 mk2s and a mk3 that I converted back to mk 2 (did away with the goofy magazine disconnect safety). Shihan and RSG can attest to the accuracy of my Rugers. The Buckmarks are also very accurate and usually have a better out of box trigger whereas the Rugers benefit from a trigger job or aftermarket hammers.

I've shot both the Buckmark and P22, but have never owned either. The P22 was a little picky about ammo.

The owners were having trouble with cheap ammo. (I wasn't close enough to tell whether it was a feeding or extraction issue.) When we started shooting one another's guns, I used some Federal bulk pack in the P22, and it had no issues.

The Buckmark was flawless.

Personally, I own a Ruger 22/45 and love it. I also own a Sig Mosquito, and I hate it. I understand the newer Mosquitos are better, but mine's a POS.

I shot a friend's P22 when I was looking for my .22, and hated it. Jammed more than any other gun I've seen. +1 for the Buckmark and the Ruger Mk III.
Was I unlucky or is the 500 box of Federal .22 increadably dirty ammo?

That's about all I use in my Ruger, but you're right it is extremely dirty although it never give me trouble.

It's a little bit dirty, but I don't mind cleaning more often if I can spend half as much on ammo! =P

High Standard is still in operation, they moved to Texas.

Although folks are still decrying the move...they say the CT guns were made better...
but heck, as long as they go bang & don't jam & shoot where ya aim 'em...
