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.

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"
