    This specific one seem to be a blued version with fixed sights and a 4" Fluted barrel.

    Is it worth $275?

    How is the price? Are they sought after like the Mark II / III?

    I'd rather have a MKIII but that's just my opinion. I say get one!

    Check buds to see what they go for new.

    The problem is there are several variants of it and I can't find this specific one on Ruger's website.

    Yes! and can you get me the one with the threaded barrel because I should have my tax stamp for my suppressor no later than October.

    Thanks man, you're a pal:thumbsup:

    I've never shot one. What's the draw of this type of .22 versus something like the sr-22? Not poo-poohing it. Just curious about their popularity. Is it sort of the pistol equivalent of the 10/22 rifle?

    I've got the stainless 7.5" fluted bull barrel MkIII 22/45 Hunter and it's a GREAT gun! Accurate as hell. :cool: Would hit a squirrel in the eyeball at 300 yards!!!...if you were lucky. :rofl:

    If it has 1911-esque removable grip panels, I have no reservations in advising you to buy it.

    The 22/45 without the replaceable panels didn't feel right in my hands.

    The 22/45 is a heavy duty pistol, while the SR22 is more or less a range toy.

    And yes, it is sort of the equivalence of the 10/22. You have accessories out of the wazoo for it.
  11. I have the 22/45 with a suppressor and LOVE it. Nothing like pulling out that baby and blowing through 200 rounds in an afternoon for almost no money. I say get it now.

    I say DO IT!!! But then again, I've a little biased.... I do own 2 22/45's, a GSG 1911-22, and walther p22, along with an advantage arms kit on my g19. And the 22/45 is my favorite. Best trigger, feeds anything, fairly accurate, and it's affordable.

    It doesn't have replaceable grips. I already have a 10/22 so I think I'll get it.
  14. I had one a few years ago, and actually got bored shooting it. It was a 4" bull barrel with adjustable sights, but I had an inexpensive BSA red dot sight on it. The range I go to most of the time only has 7 yard pistol ranges. It got so if I wasn't hitting the "X" ring on the target I counted it as a miss. When I shot the center out of the target I just shot for the hole in the paper.

    I traded it off for something else, but did replace it later with a standard MK III, 4" barrel, fixed sights. Great little guns, and I'm a revolver guy.

    Especially if you do not already have a .22 pistol my guess is that you will enjoy it alot.

    Can anyone identify this model for me? I want to know if it is tapped for a rail so I can put a red dot on it for fun shooting.

    Just got back from the range, shot the new .22/45 Lite (wife's new gun, with the Gold colored shroud, $379 plus tax at Sportsman's Warehouse) and my old bull barreled MKII, the new one is as accurate as the old one.

    My Old Mk II had a great trigger job done on it many years ago, the new one of course isn't as nice, but it' s not bad for an off the shelf pistol either, I like the gun, I like the ergonomics of it and how light the little sucker is, it's a fun little shooter and I think she's going to really enjoy it.
  19. they are decent only one i like better is the buckmark.
