    Good choice!
    these things have been around for a long time now. never met anyone that had one that wasn't a accurate shooter right out of the box.

    Nice new addition and I agree 100%, you can't beat a 22 for bang for the buck. I love the Ruger MK lll but take down is like Chinese arithmetic.

    He looks a lot like the wolf. He has fangs and the capacity for violence.
    The difference, though, is that the sheepdog must not, cannot and will not ever harm the sheep.

    Yes they seem very comfortable. Of course there's no substitute for shooting it so I'll know more about the grips when I do. You do need relatively big hands for these grips. My hands are thin but large in span which I think is ideal for them. I hope they work well shooting. They are too pretty to take off!

    For the mechanically disadvantaged, Majestic Arms has been selling kits for the various MK.s for decades. It makes field stripping much easier for the fumble-fingered among us. I grew up detail stripping the 1911A1, and the M1 Garand, so the Rugers haven't posed a problem.

    The majestic Arms group also offers a bushing that does away with the magazine disconnect, further enhancing take-down.

    Some may disagree but I think the Ruger MK pistols are the best
    of the .22 handguns. I have 2 MK IIs and I love them.

    Yeah I have gotten myself quite up to speed on all that is available for this gun. I haven't broken it down yet but after doing a lot of reading and watching youtube videos I'm finding it hard to believe that it's such a chore to do. I mean a full disassembly would be a little harrowing but field stripping doesn't look that bad at all. After I shoot it a while I may consider some mods. With these fat grips an extended bolt release might be the first thing I do. It's hard to get to. Also extended Mag Release for the same reason. After that maybe the mag disconnect and a sear because people rave about the trigger improvement form these. None of these individually cost much but of course they add up!

    I have a Mark III 22/45 I've had a good while and I like it a lot. I had heard it was hard to take down and reassemble but it gets easy quickly. I did buy the bushing and remove the magazine disconnect. This video is the easiest instructions I have found:
