Default Picked up a Ruger 22/45 Mark III....

Have always wanted a .22 of my own. Have one now. It was an impulse buy, not really concerned I paid too much for it, I know I did by about $30 bucks but there they were all lined up and shiny. Didn't do much research before I purchased it, just did it, that's the way I roll sometimes. Can't locate a thread specific to this gun, I tried in the search. Is it a gun I will put 1000 rounds through and sell or will I have it forever? Am on 7 day wait so interested in any personal experiences you may have with this weapon. It was only $325 bucks so I don't expect too much buyers remorse.

Trigger is an abomination compared to a mk ii trigger because of magazine disconnect

Why do you feel it necessary to list your guns?

no Boss, it's not a gun you will put a 1000 rounds through and sell. it's a gun you will put 10,000 rounds through and you would never sell it! i have one, and had wanted one for years, but just kept putting it off. well after i bought mine, the only regret i had was not buying one sooner. awesome pistol and pretty dang accurate. i have lots of fun shooting mine and would never even consider selling it, except for a profit to buy another one.

I have a Mk III. Here are my threads:

(I'm getting much better.)

You should review the You Tube videos on how to strip & clean them.

The pistol shoots way, way, better than I can. After you, the biggest difference will be your ammo. It cycles trouble free, unlike most of the other .22 choices in this price range.
