After doing some more research, it looks like (for now) that I may get a Mark III 22/45.
The best deal I've seen is from Bud's Gun for $246 delivered. This is for a new 5.5" Blue with adj sights. Ya can't beat THAT with a stick. :)
Bitter and clinging to my guns and my religion.
I am not sure if this is true or not but I believe the Mark III 22.45 only has the polymer handle while the regular marks have steel handles. I tried my mark iii 22.45 with a tactical solutions barrel on it and it was super light. I couldnt justify paying another 200 though for another barrel. In hindsight though, I think I should have. Would have made a super light backpacking .22.
