Mark iii vs sr22

I think the new gun is pretty cool looking myself ,the large printing on slide
does'nt bother me . Here is my take on which series is best for me .
300 bucks
Mark III standard 4.75 barrel
made to last two lifetimes
very very accurate
many grip possibilities
looks cool
fairly small but larger than sr 22
kinda heavy in a backpack
so reliable its boring

SR 22
very reliable , reports say
lightweight to carry in backpack
not as durable as Mark III
cant possibly be as accurate as a Mark

All said I think I will stay with the Marks , you just cant get any better in my eyes .

Save up and buy them both. There is never a good reason to be .22LR pistol poor.

I do have 9 Mark III's already- I dont think I can give up accuracy with the SR 22

comparing an SR22 to a Mark is comparing twodiffrent types of guns. Like Gunblast.com says the SR is a plinker that can be carried for those that want no recoil. A Mark is for the plinker that likes to target shoot. Two different jobs.jmho

You are right, I guess for me in a plinker I want very good accuracy and I can achieve that in the bare bones ruger standard model , pretty cheap and decent size to carry in the woods or backpack.

WOW!!!

I didn't know you were already MK III loaded!!! I don't think the SR22 is about the fine tune accuracy like the MK series is. It strikes me more of a (and I hate to use this word...) tactical training tool. But that being said, it would have made a whole lot more sense if they hade made it similar to the SR9/40 instead of a bigger Walther P22...

AGREE
these are two different intended guns
a better question would be
22/45 (5.5" bull barrel blue) vs SR22

if i didn't own a SR9c or SR40c i would get the 22/45
I believe the accuracy of the 22/45 would be better and more reliable as the action is the same as the mkiii
comments?

very good point of view for backpacking. I can't imagine the SR can rival the Mark in accuracy.

Walther .22 lol god I hope not . I had one of those pot metal guns once when I didnt know any better . The Ruger from everything I have read is way beyond the Walther . I bet it is fun to shoot , sounds like it is pretty accurate also . I have so many guns now my wife knows nothing about me having I better not push it , that will be my excuse for not getting one right now anyway .

I think a critical question (other than those excellent points discussed above) is:

Is the new pistol a "genuine" Ruger engineered and manufactured effort, or simply re-badged/repackaged effort based on a previous manufacturer's efforts?

Best, Jon

That's what I had been hoping for as well. Although i guess beggars can't be choosers, I can stick with a Ruger now over the Wather.

i'd bet A LOT that it was a "genuine" ruger engineered product

once the cad/cam computer has the design for the SR9 and 40 - it doesn't take much to make design changes - the key: is the capital to re-tool and the decision to risk putting out another 22
and WOW two new 22s within 3 weeks

The new SR22 is nothing like the SR9/40 design.

Although I just bought a new MarkIII SS Target last month, and love it, I would also buy the new SR22 if it was legal in CA. But alas, it is not California approved.

But I too, wish that it were based on the SR9 / SR40 design. Seems like it would have made it a GREAT intro to those models for all new shooters just learning to shoot semi-autos. To me, it looks very, very similar to the Walther P22.

What bug does CA have up its butt about the SR22? Yeah, I can just imagine all the gang bangers wanting one so they can "bust a [really small] cap in your ***."
