Don't forget the Buckmark, that's another great .22
Love me some MKIII
I have the mark iii 22/45 and love it. It is fun and cheap to shoot.
How much does the sr22 run?
If you can only have one - MK II then MK III. No contest. Buckmark has its fans but IMHO Ruger's are more durable & easier to upgrade. But they make a Buckmark carbine that looks very promising.
Then there is the MKIII 22-45 Lite. It all depends what you want to do with the pistol. They are both good. Why not just get both.

Ruger. I have a Ruger Standard which was the original version of the MKIII super accurate little gun.
I'm gonna stop you right there, you just said an AR-15 is a high-powered rifle. It is obvious you don't know anything about guns and I shall ignore anything you say from this point on.
22/45 Lite is very nice:http://www.ruger.com/products/2245Lite/models.html
I have one of the newer model 22/45s and one of the older, 1st gen 22/45s as well and I have no complaints for either. Add a few parts from Volquartsen and any of the SA Ruger pistols are so easy to shoot there is almost nothing to hitting the "x"https://www.volquartsen.com/tags/4-action-trigger-components,10-mkii-mkiii-pistols
If your looking for something for the range, go with the Mark III. I love mine! It's a lot of fun to shoot, and accurate as heck!
