    depends on what you want to do with it, target, hunting gowith the MKlll, if you want a pure fun gun to dhoot that is pretty accurate go with th SR22. The MP22 is a nice gun but it will never compete with the MKlll and I love Smith & Wesson guns.

    I didn't vote because you didn't list some of my best .22's

    I own several and like several of them (different brands)

    My personal favorite in my

    Browning Buckmark



    And my Sig Sauer 1911/22 (made by GSG)

    I went to get my first .22 pistol in several years, and was leaning heavily towards the mkIII and that Lite version with the funky green barrel. I used to shoot a MKII in competition and really liked that gun. The dealer and I were talking about what a PIA it was to disassemble/reassemble, I started having flashbacks, and he showed me a Buckmark Camper. That was all she wrote. I'm really liking mine! Feels fantastic and shoots just as well as the Ruger IMO.

    Thumbs up

    The Rugers are the best if you like to modify your pistol or build it for competition. It's the king of the working mans .22's.

    Here's a MK-III that I built up for Steel Shooting Competition:







    YMMV:

    I have a MK II, a couple of MK IIIs and now a 22/45. I was actually surprised that I find I now prefer the 22/45 best. I anticipated that it might feel a bit top heavy, but my 5 barreled gun has nice balance and feel, and after modifying the trigger and eliminating the mag safety, it has a very good trigger and is very accurate.

    I agree - I'd have voted for the Buck Mark

    I went with the Ruger SR22. I got it cause I always hear good things about it and it's One of the lightest and smallest and half the reason of getting it was to get my wife more confident around guns. She loves it

    The SR22 is a reliable and accurate little pistol within its design. I enjoy shooting mine and have confidence in it. Iif you are doing to seriously hunt, the MKIII or something similar is likely a better choice. As a camp gun though, the SR is light, easily packed and reliable. Ruger also makes the 8 shot SP101 in .22 LR and it is an outstanding and reliable shooter.

    I have 3 Ruger MKIIs, 2 Ruger MKIIIs and a Browning Buckmark. The Buckmark has the better trigger of all. I would recommend a MKII over the MKIII anytime. The chamber indicator is plastic and requires additional cleaning.

    I second RustyNut's reply. I have an old blue Mark I, with a 5.5" bull barrel that I bought over 30 years ago. My brother-in-law has the 22/45 in stainless, with a 5.5" bull barrel. I like his gun better, but I have always been pleased with mine. There is a learning curve to go through on the reassembly, but you can get help with almost anything like that on youtube, if you get stuck. Great guns. These guns evolved from the first firearm built by Ruger in 1949. If you want to see the most interesting Ruger 22 pistol ever made, Goggle "Ruger Amphibian".

    Late to the party, but for me the choice is the SR22. But I own a SR40c and the SR22 functions quite similarly. Mark III for target though.

    The Ruger Mark III 22/45 Hunting series with the 5 1/2" fluted barrel has an excellent balance and feel to it, and is incredibly reliable as well as accurate. If you remove the magazine disconnect safety and replace it with an after market bushing, not only will the magazine drop free but the trigger feel is improved and disassembly is much easier.

    Why would you limit to Rugers only, I have a Beretta Neos and it's a great gun. I'm not sure it's ever a good idea to limit your choices t a single brand.

    Which Ruger .22 Pistol?

    I second the neos. I picked up one with a 6" barrel this week and I love it. It was only ~$250.

    Plus if your wife wants pick you can get it with pink grips.

    I dont care for a little gun like the SR22, i do like ruger though.

    Im wanting an M&P because i like how it looks and feels like a full size.

    I have an MK1 and it shoots great but i wish i had the MK3 because of the mag release. One thing i dont like about my MK1 is the mag release.

    The charger is cool ide like to have one of those also but it looks like an awkward gun. Not really a free hand shooter but not really a rifle either.

    Don't want a little gun like the SR22? Have you looked at the GSG 1911 or GSG 922?
