Ok I am looking to get a 22lr pistol for some plinking fun. I have two options and need some opinions.

1. I have a spare G17 frame and could get a Advantage Arms 22lr kit.

2. Thinking about a Ruger MKIII 22/45 or the lite version.

My requirements are I want something that I can shoot thousands of rounds through and will be reliable with most of the cheap ammo. I am leaning towards the Ruger because I could put a red dot on it and that could be fun and the magazines seem to be cheaper.

Any input would be great! Also price is not really an issue.

Go with the Ruger and don't look back.

Unless your goal is the train with the Glock, go with the Ruger. I say this as an owner of AA kits for the Glock and my 1911.

I have 6 glocks so I'm not to concerned about training part. I held a ruger 22/45 lite today and it felt great. We may have found a winner..:supergrin:

Go with a dedicated target pistol. You will never regret it. Ruger is an excellent pistol.

I have a ciener(sp?) conversion slide for my Kimber that I like very much. I choose a target pistol for .22 every time.

My local Fleet Farm Store has a Red/Green Dot for $35. I and my son have them on our pistols great fun with a good pistol. Not BB or airsoft item.


I have excellent reliability with Federal bulk pack. Worst reliability is Remington bulk pack.

I was in the same situation as you, wanted something that I could put tons of rounds down range with inexpensively, I went with the Ruger 22/ 45, It's my favorite gun to shoot now, it is very accurate, especially with CCI stingers, I shoot it better than any of my handguns, I would recommend it for sure!

22/45s are great! Mine has digested anything I've run through it without a hiccup. I put a Tac-Sol bbl on mine so I could a suppressor too. Mantra: get the Ruger, get the Ruger.

Agree,

The whole reason for the conversion kit is cheap training with your primary gun.

The AA kits are a bit finicky with ammo, they run great on ammo they like and jam 5 times a mag of 10 with ammo they don't like.

I have an AA kit for my g19/23, a ruger MKI and a MKIII.

Yeah I'd like something I can run a variety of cheap ammo through.

My next question is should I go with the Regular 22/45 with the threaded barrel or the Ruger 22/45 LITE?

If you are going use a suppressor I say goy heavy. I have Pac-Lite upper and its heavy in the front cause top end and frame are so light. Also check out the Volquartsen trigger kits they are worth every cent.

Eh seeing you in MN I guess that means no suppressor.:crying: You're missing out.

Thanks for the input! I am moving to FL so I could get a suppressor so the heavy one should be the ticket.

I love my Ruger Mk III target. It's one of my favorite guns, period. And every friend I have turned on to shooting it either wants one or has one now.

I have a Millett red dot scope on top, and it is amazingly accurate. On a good day with good ammo, it groups almost like a rifle at 50 yards.
