I don't necessarily like the color, but otherwise I think it's a great idea. Tactical Solitions and Volquartsen are making a ton of money from replacement uppers for Ruger MK series pistols. 'Bout time Ruger got in the business.

The serrations are lightening cuts to reduct weight, same purpose as a fluted barrel on a Tactical Solutions PAC LITE. They don't look that bad. Hopefully, though, Ruger will find some optional colors instead of gold. A OD green or idonized black would look pretty cool.

Not horrifically bad but it would have to be a acquired taste I think....

Nothing like some shake and bake color can't cure.

If it was all black, I would get one as another host for my AAC Element suppressor. Nice pistol. Bad finish.

Not sure about the Gold, but I'm in the market for a lighter plinker for the wife, the light weight is appealing...I see only one on GB and there doesn't seem to many available so it might be a while before I see one.

Finally saw one in person the other day (and I have to say that I'm pretty impressed that Ruger has been getting all this new stuff out to the smaller towns in good time and decent quantities).

I hate to say it, but it's not as nasty-looking in person as it seems to be in photos.
I'd also vote for OD or even a nice dark gray as a solid alternate color choice.

It looks better in person.. I handled one and was amazed at how light it felt.. my reference point is a short bull barreled 22/45 that feels like a boat anchor by comparison.

Its ugly but I wonder if it will shoot as good or anywhere near the other Ruger .22's

Plus you get a threaded barrel, adjustable rear sight, and a drilled and tapped receiver. I'm pretty sure it's the only one in the mark series that comes with all of those from the factory.

It defeats the purpose for me. I <3 the MKIII Target for it's weight. Lots of other reasons too but...if I were gonna go hiking a bunch...this would be nice to have...

I see people wanting their guns to look a certain way. Serrations, dust covers, internal ejectors etc. etc. Not me. If it feels good shoots well and is reliable, I like it.

Other than that, the Lite isn't for me.

The first one I saw in the shop had a matching diameter suppressor threaded on the muzzle, so it looked pretty cool.

If they make it in a MKIII model instead of the 22/45 frame I might get one to plink with. I have an AA kit Glock and a 5.5" bull barrel MKII, and the wife has a Ruger SR22P, but I can still see a use for a MKIII Lite. Another lightweight trainer for new shooters and something fun for me. I shoot some .22 gun games, the AA kit isn't accurate enough and the MKII bull is a bit heavy.

Love Rugers or hate them,you have to admit those folks over there at Ruger are thinking outside the box, and are not sitting on there duffs like some other gun manufacturers.

Great American Company that does not seem to be afraid to experiment and see what floats, and what doesn't in todays market. Good for them.

The color would be pretty easy to fix, just saying.

Obviously Putting out standard capacity magazines instead of neutered 10 round, producing a comprehensive line of pistols and revolvers for CCW, and generally being innovative with respect to market trends. Since Bill Ruger passed the company has only improved.
