    If you can't get a Buck Mark apart and together again, you'll probably be able to get a Ruger Mk. III apart. And never get it back together.

    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.

    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.

    Its all good, just when I do a detailed takedown Its tricky with the plastic piece and the spring/pin assembly. Had it out back today chasin bunnies on the snowshoes (they won) but did some plinking and had a great time before the game started!!!

    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.
