I like my Buckmark. I've never had a problem with taking it down for cleaning or with the reassembly. I've never owned, shot or taken down for cleaning a Ruger. Either will serve you well for plinking.
I prefer my MKII 22/45. The grip angle is a perfect match for all my carry semi-auto's. I've field stripped it enough over the years that I can almost do it in the dark. Simple once you learn the finer details involved. I'm sure the BuckMark is every bit as good and reliable though. I will say that every Ruger 22 pistol I've owned or handled was near perfect poa/poi right out of the box.... all tack drivers.
I verry much like my Mark II in all respects except for cleaning It is a PITA to break down and reassemble. I usually just pull a bore snake through it and call it a day. I will really clean it no more frequently than every 1K rounds. It does not complain - it has never failed to work as it should.

You are only paranoid until you are right - then you are a visionary.
I love my 1985 vintage Buckmark, pre wood grips, good sights, or bull barrels. Three screws give you a pile of gun parts to clean. What's amatter, High Point doesn't do a .22?

I have a Ruger 22/45 Hunter it's a great gun. The first time I took it apart I thought it was hard to put back together, but as long as you follow the instructions step by step it is easy. I mounted a BSA red dot scope on it. It is my favorite handgun to shoot.
The Ruger is going to be like a Barbie or a GI Joe, endless supply of accessories!!!

I have an old High Standard Sport King which I love for plinking and target shooting. It's just a great little .22 and a real tac driver.
If I were to get another .22 target pistol, I'd probably go with the Ruger.

I have a very early Ruger MkII and it is a tack driver.
