    Default Ruger MK III

    I went and picked up my new gun yesterday, and now I can barely wait to go try it out. It is a Ruger MK III, stainless steel, with a 4 1/2" fluted bull barrel. The trigger on a pistol is one of it's most important attributes, and this one is great.l

    Congrats!
    I luv the grip angle on those Ruger 22s. The pistol points and feels so good.

    I went and shot the Ruger yesterday, and it really shoots good. I had to almost pry the magazine out, but I hope it gets a little easier to remove, when it has a few more rounds shot through it. My friend who owns the range where I shoot fired a full magazine at a small dirt pile at around 100 yards, one handed, offhand, and all the rounds hit approximately in the middle of the dirt pile, so I think it is very accurate. It has a fiber optic front sight and has a vertical white line in the back sight, which makes a good sight picture. I like it very much.

    Check the grip screws and make sure they are not protruding into the magazine well. If the screws are overtightened they press against the magazine.

    Thanks for the tip about the screws, Sgt.. Sorry it took so long to get back and thank you, but a tech had to put a new modem on my laptop today. I went to Walmart the other day and bought 500 rounds of Winchester bulk .22 ammo., and went to shoot some of it yesterday. At least two rounds out of every mag in my Ruger misfired. Actually, they fired, but they didn't even begin to extract. I had about sixty rounds of CCI mini mags and they all fired and cycled every shot, fast or slow. Now I have about 450 rounds of useless ammo. Rossi tells me that Federal has some bulk .22 ammo out that is supposed to be good. He's going to get some and let me know how it works.

    Ammo is to a semi-auto handgun what tires are to an automobile, quality equals performance. I use CCI Mini Mags exclusively in any .22 semi-auto pistol as I've found it works the best.
    I use the cheap-bulk-stuff in my .22 revolvers. This may be your excuse to add a Ruger .22 Revolver to your collection.

    Good Luck,
    Jim

    I'll probably give the bulk stuff away. Right now I'm talking to a friend who really wants my Colt Python .357. He has a Colt SAA .45 still in the box that he wants me to look at. If he doesn't want any boot, we'll probably trade.

    Hey, Sgt. T, there was no problem getting the mag into my Ruger. I just had to get it on a little different angle, and it falls in. I shot it today, and it loves CCI mini mags. It gobbles them up as fast as I pull the trigger.
