I've got the same CZ in the left-handed version. It is one sweet gun.

So girly and were nosing around at .22 pistols on our way back from the range the other day... I'm kinda leaning toward the P22 because I'm shooting an XDM45 regularly and don't want to jump back and forth that much between my "normal" frame and a 1911 style.

She mentions that she's got an old Ruger .22 in the closet that was a hand-me-down from an old neighbor when she was a kid. Go to her house, dig it out...

It's a Mark I. Built in 1958, gorgeous and will hit a gnat's ass at 50 yards.

So now I'm rethinking .22 purchases. Anybody wanna school me on reasoning between Mark II and Mark III?

That is really cool, who did you order from?

Who makes it?

Glad to see you coming back to shooting, it's the best kind of therapy.

My wife bought a mark III a couple years ago. Super accurate, cheap (like 250 out the door) minimal recoil (the bolt cycles, not the slide) and stays on target easy. She really likes it. parts/farkles are everywhere.
The only con is the takedown is picky, take some getting used to- this can drive true 1911 guys nuts

I'm jealous of the Mark I !!

If you can find a MkII, get that before the MKIII. The 3 has a loaded chamber indicator that has given some people trouble. IMHO the indicator, along with the 'lawyer speak' stamped into the barrel really kill it aesthetically.

Takedown is a PITA no matter what generation it is

Ruger Mark 3.

Got a nice Stainless one 2 years ago. Got the blank stainless filler instead of the chamber indicator and a Clark bushing that elimanated all the hassels and made it look better. At least the Mark 3 has the lawyer speak crap stamped under the barrel where it doesn't show. As for stipping it. I have that down to a science and can disassemble and assemble in about a minute. Have a small Bushnell Red Dot on it. Way too much fun. Love shooting golf balls with it. Haven't found anything more fun than that yet. Great gun.

I have a CZ 452lux in a 22 mag I added a medium base and put a Nikon 3-9 x 40 and with my bad eyes I hold just about a 1in. group at 100 yards using Hornady bullets. I just love that rifle I also put a timminy trigger in it.

It seemed like they waited decades (until Bill passed on?) to move the 'warning' to the bottom of the barrels. I really thought that they had figured out that aesthetics mattered and that it was costing them business but all the new stuff is coming with a new round of lawyer advised 'safety stuff' like the much bigger than needed loaded round indicators and magazine safetys. Having 2 Mk IIs, I hadn't looked much at the IIIs, do they have a 'key lock' as well? My last two single actions have it but at least it is hidden under the grips. I say that I won't buy a firearm with a (visible) key lock, time may prove me wrong but so far......

It's pretty sweet, that's for sure.

The first takedown and reassembly was a bit of a puzzle, but now it's a piece of cake - and kind of a brilliant bit of engineering.

Used to have one. Sold it. Shopping for another one. Then I'm done. I think a Mark III should be in any collection. Then it'll be "All my guns are Rugers" Like "All my ex's live in Texas"!

I like my Rugers well enough but to say "All my guns are Rugers" would mean no more S&W, Berretta, Glock, H&K, Kimber, Walther or Sig. I just don't think that I could do that. No doubt that I would shoot better if I stopped swapping back and forth, still....to limiting for me.

I got a quick question for you gun guys. I currently have a tricked out 10/22 with the adjustable tapco intrafuse stock, reworked insides and a red dot site.

My question is that if it's possible to a mount a folder stock to the tapco stock.

something like the tapco ak47 stock.

Guys....dumb question. I'm looking at a Ruger Single Six. Will these things work with .22 shorts? Figure if so, it'll be quiet enough to set up targets in my back yard.
