View Full Version : My New Baby RUGER MKIII 22/45.

06-05-2010, 09:40 PM
Salam All,

I have owned many .22 Rugers in my lifetime and will probably own many more. They are the all rounder plinker/target weapons. Of all the Rugers owned this one was the one I had been looking for for quite a while. The Ruger MKIII 22/45 and as the model number suggests - it has the ergonomics like the 1911 .45. It suits my needs best: a four inch Bull Barrel (more than enough for me to plinker easily at 50meters + if necessary), Adjustable sights, scope base (drilled and tapped), and ofcourse the entire lower is Polymer.
Here are some pictures I took of this baby... Now, I have to order its accessories.

Moeen bhai, a very nice gun indeed. Congrats. BTW, any special reasons for preferring this one (4 inch barrel) over 6 7/8 inch barrel MKIII Competition or MKIII Hunter? :)

Salam All,
@Nabeel - Thanks bhai, the wait is over.
@Xerga - Thanks.
@Aquarius - Thanks brother.
@KageFox - Thanks you.
@Denovo87 - Thanks bhai, this thing has cost me over 100K.
@Skeeter60 - Thanks and +1.
@Apalo - Thanks and Amin.
@Faisji - Thank you.
@WasifAli89 - Thanks.
@Faheem - Thanks.

@Gilani - Bhai, most of the shooting I do is at 25 meters, sometimes when I go to Attock, I get a chance to shoot at 50 + + and + ranges. Over the years I have experienced these pistols to shoot accurately at these distances; hence I no longer opt for the long barrel models. I remember shooting at 2ft square steel plate across the spill way of a dam in Attock one time with my Walther OSP. Then I took out my little Beretta Model 87 and found that I was still able to do the same!!! So, guess what? The OSP had to go it was useless to me lugging around a big heavy gun.

@Ilyas Bhai - Thanks and where are you? You never call anymore.

@Khurramdool - Thanks, Yes it does have some features I don't like, but I will have to do with them... like the lock you mentioned, a loaded chamber indicator, and the thing no longer fires without the magazine.

@Lionheart - Thank you brother.

Gr8 Moeen bhai, indeed a very nice gun and so much true for the long barrels, wish you best of luck with your new gun.

Congrats Moeen bro. Looks like you are taking the shooting competitions a level higher. :)
btw "Preston King"* must have had a hard time parting with this amazing piece.

WAH WAH MOEEN bhai thusi great ho. If Barrel might have been 6 inches, than it would have been classic to watch and you would have been invaded by ............ :)
But still it is a delight to have such a gun.

Congrats, and pray I get one too. :)
