If you are going to get serious about competitation shooting listen to Rex. If not you won`t want to spend the money on the old High Standards. A while back Gun Test ran the .22 semi - autos through and found the Rugers to be the best and the best for the money. I have a Slab side and a government model and they are both shooter and seem to keep right on shooting without cleaning. It takes some real junk ammo to get them to jam.

The top three I would take would be the Colt Woodsman Ruger MkII and MkIII.

I have shot them all and none hole up in accuracy or robustness as the three I listed. The colt is going to be hard to come by because it has not been made in a few years.

Thanks everybody! I decided, after much research, to go with the Browning Buck Mark. Here's the link: Buck Mark Standard Stainless URX, , Browning Firearms Product

Default which one

You forgot the most accurate and best production target gun the Smith and Wesson Model 41. Will out shoot the Rugers, brownings etc. The MKII's are a close second and a big bang for the $.

I'm sure the S&W 41 is a great pistol, but the price for one of those is about $600 more than I spent. I ended up buying a Browning Buck Mark for about $380.

For twice the cost of a Ruger MK III you can get

Really no experience on it (I just think it looks cool)

Default target .22

I have a Ruger Mark III 3.5" barrel- I love it. I entered a competition a couple of weeks ago with it; but I had rifles and scopes to compete with. It was my first so I did lousy. But I was supporting my local gun club!! Practice, practice, practice.

I bought a bull stainless 4" MkII .22/45 in 1997 and love it. The grip angle is the same as a 1911, and the gun is more accurate than I will ever be. I paid $282. The only downside is the reassembly process after cleaning. What a nightmare...on the night of a harvest moon, flip it over and tilt the muzzle forward, squeeze the trigger, be sure to do this and then do that and when you get it all back together and it doesn't cock, get out the manual and start over. Someone actually sells a conversion kit to make it easier.

I had problems with reassembly the first two times. After that the key is removing the magazine, holding the barrel at 10 or 11 oclock and pulling the trigger. Works almost every time and i can do it now in less than 2 minutes.
