Ruger Mk II
« on: November 06, 2019, 02:15:38 PM »
I have two mk II pistols that I have had fun wringing out lately. Iíve been hitting the range a good bit and estimate that Iíve put between 3 and 4K rounds through them over the last six months. Before that I shot them occasionally but hated loading the magazines. I bought an Ultimate Clip Loader. Well. Thatís gonna cost some money because my shooting pace has really increased with that little gem.


Anyone else still shooting the MK II or the updated models?

I have & shoot a MKII quite a bit.  Stainless model with 5" BBL, shoots great, hate to take it apart for cleaning though. ;)  I also had a MKIII Hunter for a while but ended up letting it go...

I've owned several over the years and wish I'd held onto the 10" one. It was either an MKI or MKII I'd guess. Currently I have a 5.5" 22/45 and like it a lot. Dunno for sure but imagine it is an MKIII.

I have a 22/45 that the paperwork says is a MK II, I believe. I've had it for a number of years, trading a S&W 22A with outlandish target grips for it at a gun show in Dothan Alabama. I like it extremely well.

If you donít have an Ultimate Clip Loader I highly recommend one. Itís allowed me to keep five magazines loaded so that the kids can keep on shooting. I had two one hour sessions at the range and went through about 700 rounds in just over an hour!  This has really allowed me to work on form and muscle memory because I can shoot so much that my arms get tired and Iím forced to push through for accuracy.


If the bulk pack ammo what do you guys find working best for your pistol?

only two  I have left are a 4 inch and a 5.5 inch 22/45. To be honest they collect dust. I quit shooting 22s back when the last big shortage happened and got into shooting small centerfires like the 38s and 9s and can do it almost as cheap anyway casting and reloading.
