The Ruger® MK III™ Target Semi-Auto Rimfire Pistol delivers superb performance with the same basic design as Ruger's Standard 22 pistol that initiated the growth of the renown firearms manufacturer over 50 years ago. Ruger 22 semi-automatic pistols, from the Standard and MK I to the MK II and MK III models, have become the most widely used 22 pistols ever produced. They are cherished for plinking, small game hunting, both informal and formal target shooting, and they have even seen use by the US Military. The MK III utilizes Ruger's proven internal cylindrical bolt and fixed barrel design, that provides a higher accuracy potential over designs with sights mounted on a cycling slide by ensuring the pistol's sights stay in permanent alignment. The MK III Target comes with a precision rear target sight that's fully adjustable for windage and elevation, and a vertical post, modified Patridge-style front sight; the sights are easy to see and allow for precise shooting at small targets. The top of the receiver is drilled and tapped for easy installation of the included Weaver®-style scope base if the shooter desires to use optical sights. The weight of the bull barrel aids to hold the pistol steady, and balances superbly with the pistol's steel frame. The angle of the grip allows the shooter to point the pistol naturally and acquire the sights quickly. Checkered grip panels provide a solid non-slip hold on the pistol in any environment. The MK III has several safety features, making it an extremely safe 22 pistol. A loaded chamber indicator on the side of the receiver indicates when the chamber is loaded by sight or touch. A manual thumb safety locks the sear, while allowing the pistol to be loaded and unloaded when engaged. A magazine disconnect prevents the pistol from firing once the magazine is removed. And, an internal key lock renders the pistol totally inoperable. The Ruger MK III Target Semi-Auto Rimfire Pistol is a rugged and reliable firearm that gives a lifetime of service. Comes with two 10-round magazines. Made in USA.

Great Target Pistol I have this gun and I love using it for target practice. Never had a single problem with it and it is built like a tank so it should last forever. It has a heavy feel for a .22 but this just makes it even better for target practice. June 23, 2011
Stiff when new This gun improves with use out of the box. The magazines were not smooth and caused misfeeds when loaded to capacity. They need to be disassembled, cleaned and lubricated lightly right out of the box to get their feed smooth. The gun is tight and difficult to field strip the first few times. I needed a hammer and hard wood dowel to protect the rear sights and more hammering to get the rear pin back in place. This problem quickly improves with use. I did not have trouble separating the upper receiver from the frame although I was expecting trouble and the manual says to have the hammer ready. Mine only needed hand strength and a good grip. In the beginning my magazines did not easily lock into place. Extra force was required on the mag bottom while pushing the mag release from the right. Getting the mag out after pressing the mag release was also difficult at first. This problem is also quickly going away. I thought quality was good for the price of the gun although I paid less than $400 NIB. With standard velocity it was almost as much fun to shoot as my Colt Woodsman series 1. With less than 5 rounds in the mag, the gun cycled well right out of the box with both high velocity and standard velocity. Sub-sonic ammo failed to cycle but it is not supposed to run the gun, so that is not a complaint just information in an ammo deprived market. The gun cannot be fired without a mag (full or empty) in the gun. That means a few extra field strip steps to pull the trigger which is fine by me but some people do not like a mag safety. The scope mount is provided for owner installation; but out of the box there are only fill screws installed, point being, the gun looks better than pictured. Is this a good first gun? Only if you have help with field stripping and cleaning. Otherwise a great first gun. March 31, 2013
