Just brought her home, she is my xmas present
Stainless All Weather 18" barrell
Looks good. Now tear it apart.
Its gonna stay stock for now, just scope it
I put a hogue black stock on mine -- that was the most pricey at around 70-80 bux.
On the other hand, for like 40 bucks you can get an extended release for the mag, an auto release for the bolt, bolt buffer and a better extractor -- just those and I could tell a slight difference
I kept the stock barrel and now I'm thinking it would have been nice to get a better one. Ah well screw it, it's just a .22 and I can spend all day plinking with it.
Becareful because you can end up dropping lot of money in it before too long haha
I would love to do a lot with it down the road, but for now it will be fine for plinking, that and my Mark III 22/45 I have
I just bought a Mark III today, blued, 5.5 in bull barrell. Went to Wallys and get 1100 rounds of Federal bulk packs for $20.
I heart .22lr.
Yeah I figure I've put maybe 175 since I got it -- pretty cool.
I jsut like the fact I can get a brick of ammo for $8-9 and sit outside all day
Sweet here is mine with a reddot on it
so I can shoot cheaply, i still have my AR and SA 1911
Nice. I didn't get the 22/45 version, mine is just the straight Mark III with the luger style grip. Got it for $280 out the door, in for cheap shooting.
Edit: Have you had any problems with the Mark III? Reliability?
I bought the 22/45 because I have the 1911 and its the same grip angle, but then I put the red dot it and I love to shoot it at pennies a round
Nope, its the same design as they have been using, so as far as reliability, I use the cheap remington brick and it eats anything I put through it. I curse it to the point of throwing it out the window when I have to clean it though
What is a good cheap scope for an occasional plinking
Have you put a VQ sear in it yet?
if anyone has their all weather stock they want to sell for cheap let me know
the Ruger Mark III is stock, except for the red dot, I wanted to mod it but we started the process of moving shortly after I bought it and the last 6mos have been a blur, sometime all this stuff will get done.
I was wanting a Hogue for $70 and was looking at the standard carbine and adding that, but I got this and I acutally like the stock and dont really want to change anything on the gun right now except a scope and go down the road changing this and that on it.
I have the same one and it shots great in stock form.
I've got a MKIII Hunter in 22/45. It's ok, but i'm kinda wishing i would've went with the buckmark. Reliability problems, and it's a B I T C H to clean. Like seriously. the engineers made it as hard as physically possible.
IT does suck to clean but I heard after you do it a few times its easy, it seems its that one piece in the back of the handle that has to be just right when you put it together or you gotta start it over, but I have had no problems with my reliablity wise but I do hate cleaning it too
My 22/45 is the only gun I own that doesn't get completely disassembled during cleaning. I swab the barrel and then spray what I can out with gun scrubber and then CLP. Then it goes back in the safe. When it quits working I'll take it to someone to get it completely stripped and cleaned.
I took it apart once when I got it and had to pay to get it put back together
I took it apart the first time and I spent literally hours and a trip to the range and Ruger forums to get it back together.. the best instructions I have seen online on how to do it though.
That's agreat link....But I'm still hesitant to tear it down, as I may want to use it sometime in the next week
The first time i stripped it i couldn't get it back together cause the the hammer spring strut or something was messed up. I had to call Ruger and talked with a real nice lady who told me exactly what to do. I'm pretty sure she gets that call at least once per day.
I cant even put it together in person, I couldnt image doing it over the phone
Fuck, same thing happened to me today, I can't get the fucking mainspring back in. The pin goes up into the bolt just fine, but when you start to push it back down towards the frame it pulls out a little preventing it from snapping back in.
