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.

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.

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.

Everyone should have atleast one Ruger 22/45 :)

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.

The Mark series Rugers are some of my favorite rimfires of all time.

Haven't you learned that every single post that starts with "should I buy" always ends up with a resounding yes?

We are all of the agreement that more toys means more fun. :tongue out:

Well, I got it.

It doesn't have a rail or per tapped for a rail. Anyone ever added a rail to a MKIII?

GET IT, but don't pay anywhere near full price, be patient.

I've had the (to me) top of the line slab sided KMK678GC with a Simmons 1" red dot for years, generally shoot it off sandbags at 50 yards....3/4" groups not unusual. Only mod is the Volquartsen 'exact edge' extractor.

I'd say get a 22-45 II or III if one falls into your hands. Just scored one in a pawn shop here in Houston area. $175 out the door, no box, papers, or extra mag. 5 1/2" blued with adj sights. Ruger site shows it to be made last year. Looks to be hardly fired.
I already know I don't like the lawyered up doo-dads on the Mark III, big deal. Amazing how they took a simple design and put the goofy loaded chamber indicator, mag disconnect etc on it. I can live with it, i guess for the price I paid.
All in all, I prefer the Mark II's, though:wavey:

Easy to take apart, yes. Getting it back together is another thing :)

Might need a little tap.
Thats usually the easy part, you will have fun getting it back together once you get it apart:)

Easy with the book and once you have done it a few times.

Field strip one and a Glock give them both to some one who has never done either before. They will get the Glock back together quite easy but they will never get the Ruger back together so that it works right.
