Default Ruger Mark II .22 pistol

I picked up another one last night at a local gun shop. I've had one for years and my buddies always tries to steal it from me so I ran across a used one for sale. I picked it up and looked at it and I don't think it has ever been fired. The original receipt was still in the case and the magazines still had the stickers on the side. Now maybe I'll be able to shoot my own gun more often. They are a blast to shoot. Mine has had several thousand rounds put through it without a jam. I think my buddy will be excited when I give him the one I just bought. Does anybody else have any expereince with the Mark II.

Have a MKII target. It shoots really well, my only conplaint is the odd grip angle.

I looked at a Smith & Wesson target pistol as well and there was no comparision with the Ruger.

Yep, bought one new, stainless with the 6 7/8 barrel...Back in the 80s...It loves CCI Hollowpoints, with open sights it will keep them in a inch and a half group at 25 yards...I have killed a bunch of squirrels and twice as many water moccosons with while fishing...

I have one that I found on an upper shelf in the workshop while moving into the house I bought three years ago. I thought about telling the previoius owner....but never got around to it. My son and I both love it at the range and it has taken out two racoons, several rabbits,and a couple possum.

I've got one too, and like it a lot. Like someone else said, I'm not real pleased with the grip angle, as I'm a 1911 fan... Maybe one of these days I'll get rid of the Mark II and pick up a 22/45.

Mine has the slab sided barrel, and is far more accurate than I'll ever be. We shoot a lot down on the creek and have even managed to break a few clays with them, though it's much easier to miss them. My gun loves to snuff out squirrels and armidalios.
