The Mark II is just about the perfect bullseye .22, the Mk III is the screwed up version after lawyers got into the design (screwed up the trigger and added a magazine disconnect safety). Find a nice used Mk II, you will be glad later.

I have a Mark II Target model 22/45 in stainless and I love it. I and my 8 yr. old grandson have shot 1000s of rounds out of it.You use the coated bullets and that thing will spit casings out of it all day long. Great gun!

I got a chance to try my brother-in-law's Ruger Mark III Target a couple of days ago. I really enjoyed shooting it, and even with my newbie-ness usually showing through any time I go out with the family to shoot, it was really accurate. Had a couple of FTE, but it's the ammo because that also FTEs in my husband's Ruger 10/22 on occasion.

Downside for me is that I don't overly care for the grip (of the two, I prefer the Browning Buck Mark's grip). I personally won't be getting it for my first gun, but I would still highly recommend it to others (not that my opinion holds weight at this stage).

Wish I had something to say about the Mark II, but maybe someday I'll get the chance to try one.

So this might have turned more into a range report than anything. Enjoy your new toy.

JeiC, check out the one i bought. the Ruger 22/45 Mark III. the the frame and grips are more like the 1911 45. i like it better than the regular Mark III. so far i have shot about 200 rnds of remington brass plated hollow points thru it, no problems so far. i bought a 1000 rnds of this stuff. i can already tell, it ain't enough!

That's a sweeeet shooter you picked up there (and a nice deal too!).
more than 25 years ago I had a mk1 on long term loan from a family friend when I first became involved in league shooting. I quickly moved on to 1911's.
Over the years I always planned to pick up a Ruger .22 for myself but never did. This spring I came across a used mk3 Competition Target and jumped on it, mostly because of the cheap ammo.
This summer I was letting my girlfriend shoot it (her first experience shooting) and she had trouble with the weight of it after 3 or 4 shots. The up side is she wanted to try the Browning Hi Power then as it was lighter and she enjoyed shooting it a lot.
So, justification being the strongest human urge, I had a reason to bring home a new (much lighter weight) 22/45 Hunter with a fluted stainless 4.5" bbl.

The GF likes has more fun shooting it, and I absolutely love the gun both for the way it shoots, and because I think it looks pretty cool too.
It had an awesome 3# 1oz trigger even before the Volquartsen trigger and bushing to eliminate the mag safety went in, and it is just plain fun to shoot.

I don't think you could ever regret your purchase there, especially with those nice grips yours came with. Looks like a grin factory to me !
