    Very accurate gun. And if you see the little black 'button' on the front of the lower receiver, underneath the barrel, you just press that in, and the barrel lifts up.

    It can be a bit finicky though on ammo, it won't feed federal brick ammo, but eats up remington's. Hope that helps.

    Berretta Neos. Accurate, reliable with bulk ammo, and a breeze to take down and clean. You don't even need to take it down...spray some gun scrubber in it and keep on shooting.
    There are two sides to every issue: one side is right and the other is wrong, but the middle is always evil.

    I bought a Ruger Mark III 22/45 to do some cheap practicing at the range before I started shooting .45 ACP.
    I was about half terrified because I had heard the horror stories of how hard it was to clean and disassemble. I had a little trouble on my first go around, now I can do it in my sleep.

    I completely took it apart a few days ago to do the "slingshot" Mod, it went back together like a breeze.

    Basically, I think the Ruger is one of the best .22s for it's intended purpose. Shooting the Ruger 50 or sixty rounds before doing the same drills with my 1911 improves my skills and saves me some money on ammo too.

    Not cheap but another good choice would be a CZ Kadet.

    is this some urban myth about the difficulty of field stripping a Ruger Mark I/II/III ? Mine have never, ever been any problem whatsoever. They have to be among the most ingeniously designed rimfire pistols ever, as well as durable, accurate, sturdy, etc. It takes all of about two times of disassembly/re-assembly to figure out that it ain't rocket science.

    I recently got a Ruger 22/45.....and I gotta say that I don't like it all that much. Yeah, once you get the hang of stripping it down and re-assembly, it's not all that hard to do. I had a few problems with mine and sent it back to Ruger. When they send it back, I think I may just trade it in on a Browning Buck Mark.

    I have a Ruger Mark II. Yes, I know that removing the bolt and getting back in right is a pain, but if you practice it for 10 times in a row, it becomes easy.

    I just ordered the Kadet conversion for my CZ75 Compact. I had a Marvel conversion for my 1911's that worked pretty well but the accuracy of the CZ conversion on my friend's CZ was more accurate.

    Had a buckmark but didn't like the sights so I sold it to a guy at a gunshow for 200 bout a year ago. Should have kept it and changed the sights. But I will be buying a P-22 soon.

    I have had a Ruger 22/45 since 1992. It is an outstanding gun. Very reliable and pleasant to shoot.
