    I'm looking to add a semi .22 to my collection. Which one would you prefer between the Ruger Mark III or SR22? Thanks.

    I would prefer the sr22 for size,look and engineering quality. The mk3 is probably better for competition shooting.

    Personal pref, but I think the Mark tres is WAYyyyy cooler looking. I've though seriously about it several times.

    if your going to shoot a lot mark3 hands down no contest. cheap mags easy to find mags and massive aftermarket support. there is even a speed loader out there that actually works well for loading mark3 mags.

    its the 10/22 of pistols you can work on every aspect of the gun yourself with nothing but some punches and screwdrivers.

    I have shot them both. If u wanna target shoot or compete buy the mark III if you want self defense or tactical practice get the sr22

    I have two Mk IIIs. I will be getting an SR22. So, I would say to get both! Really though, it comes down to which one you like more. Either would be great choices.

    If you can only have one - MK II then MK III. No contest. Buckmark has its fans but IMHO Ruger's are more durable & easier to upgrade. But they make a Buckmark carbine that looks very promising.

    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.:D

    Ruger. I have a Ruger Standard which was the original version of the MKIII super accurate little gun.

    If your looking for something for the range, go with the Mark III. I love mine! It's a lot of fun to shoot, and accurate as heck!
