I would recommend the Ruger MKIII with the 6-3/4" bull or "slab-side"
barrel to anyone. The Nambu-style slide lends itself to a solid scope
mount on the body of the receiver. Don't go insane with the scope cost,
put your money into the stainless steel model MKII or MK III, instead.
The 22/45 is pretty much the same, if you prefer a Luger-style
What fun, tack-driving at 50 yards, and plinking at 75 to 100 yards.
WOC likes this setup, too.
I love my Ruger MK III but dislike the 22/45 because of the magazine design. I think you mean that the MK II's & III's are the Luger-style grip angle and the 22/45 is the 1911 grip angle, hence the name.
