I like the way the mark III looks and feels but, the grip angle is kind of "sharp." I want to know your opinion. It's between a Mark III standard blued with a 5.5 inch barrle and a 22/45 with 5.5 inch bull barrle.
Ever clean one? Worse break down ever. Simply retarded. Had the 22/45 and could not wait to get rid of it. Get a SR 22 is my advise

The Mark III, because it has a steel frame.

The 22/45 was intended for someone who is committed to a 1911 but wants to practice for less. Today the 1911 .22 replicas are common and affordable, so the 22/45 no longer matters as a 1911 trainer.

With the Mark III, any combination of steel and light alloy is possible between the barrel and the frame.

It is not as bad as it seems. I agree, if it were designed like this today, it wouldn't stand a chance to sell. But it is kind of grandfathered in, so people keep buying it since 1949. The Mark III remains, I think, the only all-steel 22 in production. If you are seriously into bullseye, it is a top contender for your $$.
