New Ruger 22/44 Target #10110 stainless steel
This morning I dropped my wife off at a nearby craft show and went shooting.
When I arrived I stopped by the counter with the Rugers and started looking. They had about 8 different MarkIII's. I was interested in the blued 22/44 Target or the blued 22/45 Slab-Sided. I ended up with the 22/45 Stainless Steel Target which I purchased for $249.00! I went across the floor to the range and shot the heck out of it along with my Walthers.
I was impressed by it's accuracy and smooth handling without any problems.
Later this evening I field stripped it and cleaned it while watching the video without any incidents. Reassembling it was another story. It took me about an hour to figure out the correct way of lining up the hammer in it's correct position then putting the main spring housing strut assembly back into the rear of the gun correctly. Once I did this I disassembled it and reassembled it without any further problems, while watching the video of course.
I am very happy with the pistol and will overcome the reassembly process in time.
I thank those of you who wrote their posts in in response of mine and shared their information and experiences with their Ruger 22/44's.
