    Any one have any experience with these guns? My local gun store is having a "Ruger Factory Authorized Sale" and I can get the base model for $219, which is cheaper than Bud's Gun shop.

    Should I go pick one up?

    What's so great about them?

    edit: That's a sincere question. I've never shot one and I'm curious why everyone likes them.
     
  5. Get it. Best .22 pistol you can get for anywhere near that much money.
     
  6. Reliable, accurate, very well built.

    Great accuracy right out of the box, will feed just about any bulk crap you can throw in it with no jams. Like most Rugers, it's built like a fucking tank, it will last you a lifetime, and your kids a lifetime. The only downside, the mag capacity of 10 rounds sucks.

    Other than that, Ruger makes the best .22's on the market, period. I have a MKIII, not the 22/45 model, and of all the guns I own, it's one of my favorites. You can shoot all day for cheap.

    Any special model to look for?
     
  10. Not really. Get what you like. They have the stainless hunter models with fiber optic sights and they have the blued slab side barrel ones. The hunters are more expensive. I have the 5 1/42" blued one. It also looks like they have a stainless bull barrel model.

    The thing I like the most about them, are that they are the same angle and controls of a 1911.

    The chromed hunter with fluted barrel and fiber optic is pretty bad ass.

    Great guns. Just have someone show you how to take it apart and put it together. Reassembly is a pain the first few times.

    I've never shot one that didn't outshoot anything else in it's price range. Plus being able to go back and forth between it and my 1911 with the same grip angle, trigger shape, etc.

    I've had two MK* series guns, and think the 22/45 is vastly superior if for nothing else, the American mag release that comes on them.

    I'd look to score one used for as cheap as I could, and buy the VQ hammer/sear combo for it. I had one with those parts on it, and it really made the trigger shine. Money well spent IMO.

    I have them and man it's awesome. I need to buy the $20 adjustable trigger to take up a little of the pre-travel.

    All that being said..... My Kadet kit shoots as good as any of the Ruger/Browning 22's I've had, and is the only one that's stayed with me.

    I almost got one of those a couple years ago. They are a lot of fun, I would be happy with either of the pistols, I just got a good deal on my 22/45 so I jumped on it.
