I have had a MK I 5.5" bull barrel for almost 30 years. It is fiercely accurate.

The Mark II is no longer made, right? I know that is true about the 22/45 series.

If that is true, you'd have to find it used...not too tough, though.

The Mark II is "missing" a few safeties. Since it is NOT a carry weapon, those safety features are not really necessary. Some people much prefer the Mark II. In the 22/45 series, the Mark II also has a wider grip than the Mark III, which is more comfortable for many guys (but maybe the narrower grip is better for you?).

Personally, I chose the Browning Buckmark 5.5" bull barrel Camper.

I have the scoped Competition Target model in mk2 and it's MUCH more accurate than I'll ever be. It groups 3/4"-1" at 50 yards from a solid rest. It's hard to argue with that kind of accuracy.

I've shot this Mark II. It is one sweet pistol. If you can't hit what you're aiming at with this pistol.......you aren't EVER going to hit what you're aiming at. It can almost read your mind and hit what you're thinking of hitting.
