Ruger 22/45

The wife went with to the range with me last weekend, she had fun shooting but didn't like the weight of my 45 but did of the 22 revolver but had problems with pulling the hammer back so I'm looking to get her a 22 auto. I'm looking at the Ruger 22/45 Mark III decent price for an auto, mainly the model 0107 [http://www.budsgunshop.com/catalog/p...ucts_id/13153] or the 0109 [http://www.budsgunshop.com/catalog/p...ucts_id/14307]. Anyone got any experience good/bad with these?

I have the 22/45 MKIII. Awesome is an understatement. Just about 1000 rounds, and no problems (see below). It's accurate and very fun to shoot. It's also a great way to practice the basics, as 22 rounds are about 7 cents a round for the good stuff....

The one "thing" that it is picky about- mine likes hi velocity or hypersonic ammo. The low velocity stuff caused some problems early on, but since changing ammo, it has been flawless. Truly a great pistol.

I shot a ruger very similar to those. I think it was the same model just an older version with a longer barrel. Very fun to shoot. Almost no recoil. Great for plinking around at the range and very accurate. I'd like to have one myself.

I have two MKII's and for some reason, I always take my Buckmark to the range.
I think I like the grips and trigger of the Browning better.
I have one of my Rugers with Volquartsen internals and the trigger is fine.
I guess it's the grip.
Plus takedown and cleaning the Ruger is never easy.

I had the Kimber Tactical at the range today, and just for fun I slapped on the .22 conversion. Very lightweight, and very accurate, and it takes less than 2 minutes to switch them out. Plus, I didn't have to get a new registration for the conversion.

I had the Buckmark as well, and enjoyed it ... just never felt the need for a Ruger.

I love my MKIII 22/45 Hunter. It's a great little gun and has gone through thousands of trouble-free shots. Take-down can be a little tricky the first time, but once you figure it out it takes less than 5 minutes to completely dissemble and reassemble.

Worst gun for disassembly: Stoeger .22 Luger. The most ridiculous, convoluted piece of Rube Goldberg crap ever imported.

I just listed one up here but traded it for a Ruger p-95 9mm. I like the 22-45 I only got rid of mine because I have two. Ditto on the high powered ammo but that is a automatic 22LR. issue in general. Never had any problems with mine they are accurate and fun to shoot.

If you would consider another 22 take a look at the Walther P22 w/ 3.4" barrel single/double action. 5" barrel is also available and are interchangeable. Very accurate and reliable and I've had only 2 FTE in about 1000rds. Shoots anything you feed into it. Different backstraps included. Takedown lever is a little bit of a pain to work with and you need a little plastic piece (included) to keep recoild spring in place when putting her back together though. It's about $60 more then the Ruger though.Every newbie that I take to the range shoots this first. Funny part is my wife actually likes my Kimber Ultra Carry II better.

saulibiomd, I've looked at the Walther P22 and I like the weight of the gun (which would be great for the wife) but I'm a bit concerned about the Zinc slides, I've read where they've cracked and even broke all together but I'll read up on them a bit more. Thanks.

Not a fan

I had a Ruger and the Buckmark.
I had miss fire issues with both. I tried all the different .22 ammo nothing worked.
I bought a S&W Target .22 for $250 several years ago never had a problem with it. We now have a Beretta .22 as well and it has been a great gun.

Ruger 22/45-wallpaper1.jpgI have a few 22's. Ruger mark III Hunter ,1954 Ruger Mark I, Browning Buckmark, Dan Wesson 22 Revolver 4in Barrel and a couple a cheap 22 pistols. The ruger is my favorite. The trigger is very good on it and the sights are the best of all my pistols.

I've pretty much decided on the Rugers, now I'll start looking and shopping around for a FFL. I'm getting a pair of them so we can both shoot and I won't be spending so much on .45's - although I'll fire off a full magazine each time we shoot.

Thanks for all your inputs!
