    I love the look of this gun. Thinking it could be my next purchase since I don't have a 22 cal pistol.

    Browning has some I'm interested in also, but I'm leaning toward this one.

    What say you?

    Its a good gun. I prefer the buckmarks cause they are easier to disassmble and clean and the barrel is not the registered part, so I can change barrels to threaded or whatever at any time without an FFL.

    But Rugers are good guns.

  5. I like it. I was unaware about the serial numbered part thing with the Brownings, which is cool about them.

    The Hunters are nice guns. The grips look nice on that one too.

    I have a MK 1 Ruger that's had hundreds of thousands of rounds through it, I highly recommend them.

    I have a MKIII 22/45 target that I like a lot, but I really love the wood on that one. How much? You'll nearly never lose money on a purchase like that - you could buy it for $300 and shoot it for years, and sell it for $300.

    The barrel on a MK II/III/2245 is the serial numbered part. If you order a tacsol barrel for a Ruger it has to be transferred by an FFL.

    Yeah, like was said, on Rugers it's the entire upper that is the serialized part. On the Buckmark the barrel us just a barrel you can order, buy and swap out any time you want.
