    Pretty much same as subject line. I have a Hunter MkIII and it's pretty good. I have a cheap 20yr old handgun scope on it...Simmons. Anyway I used to have a Ruger MkII Gov't model. What a tack driver with the same scope. I sold it sad to say....one of those guns you wish you never got rid of. I was wondering what kind of accuracy others got with the Hunter and if they hunjted with one. I have a Henry Golden Boy and I hate to drill and tap into the brass frame, although I will if I have to...so I have been wondering about using the Hunter for actually hunting! It just does not seem to get the groups other .22's I have do.

    My hunter shoots very well using the factory sights I do wish they were v notch and bead as the fiber front sight is too large for my liking

    The gun is good for hunting. Will shoot better than 99% of shooters.

    Can't speak for the Rugers, I don't own one anymore. But I do have an old Colt Woodsman Match Target that I do use for squirrel hunting. While I don't kill a lot of squirrels with the pistol, I do have a lot of fun!

    I havent hunted with one, but, as far as accuracy....the one Ive been shooting with on a regular basis is spot on!
