I do too. I'm a relover guy at heart, but I've always had a soft spot for the Ruger 22 Automatics, no matter what vintage.
This one has the straight frame like the old Ruger Standards. It doesn't have the scallops at the rear of the frame like the regular MK II's and III's have. I guess a concession to making them like they used to. It does have the bolt release like the Mk II's, so I guess it's really a hybrid.
