    Hello,

    I have been looking to purchase another pistol lately and after a lot of thinking I have decided to go with the Ruger Mark II/ And or the Mark III.

    I have been studying a lot about the pistol over the weeks and I am ready to purchase the firearm.

    What do they go for on average retail new?
    Looking for just the Stand Mark III.

    Also, I go to a lot of gun shows to buy guns and curious anyone know how much they run on average for a Standard Mark III in good condition. $250.00 or so?

    Well, Thanks for any information folks.

    A Mark III standard with no bull barrel 4 1/2 inch around 235 to 260 you will enjoy the gun when you get it.

    I think you'll like the new features on the MK III. It now has a button mag release as apposed to the heel type release on the earlier MKs. Also has the nice feature of having the gun on safety and still being able to load/unload round in the chamber. It also has a chamber loaded indicator, so you know when it has a round ready to go. The only drawback as I see it is the old plastic grips. There are plenty of aftermarket grips available. The stainless steel versions are real attractive, especially with cocobolo grips. You really can't go wrong with a Ruger. Very well made and affordable pistol. Thanks Pawn for the link. TJ

    Thanks for all the great information, Local firearm shooting range has the Ruger MKIII to rent.

    So before I go and purchase it here soon I am going tonight to test fire the weapon.
    Thanks again everyone.

    Dave,

    Well, I went to the gun range today and test fired the Ruger MKIII.
    I liked it a lot, After I got done shooting it I went over to the case to take a look at the Stainless version.

    While I was there I found a new love for the Browning Buckmark.

    Who has the Buckmark .22 and what is your overall review.

    Your doing just what I did teetering between two nice handguns. The Rugers all stainless 6 7/8" fluted bull barrel w/ fiber optic finally won out, and the cocobola grips didn't hurt. Both the Ruger Hunter / Taget and the Browning are nice handguns so either way you will be happy. I put a scope on my Ruger and its a real tack driver. So flip a coin and take the plunge. My brother just bought the Browning so I'm anxious to see how it shoots.

    I have a Buckmark and I really like it. It points well, is very accurate, it's easy to clean. I don't think you could go wrong with either.

    I just purchased the Rugar Mk III 22/45 and like it allot so far. It's blued and has a 5 1/2 bull barrel. There aren't nearly as many grip options with the 22/45 but that's the grip angle I prefer as it matches my 1911.

    Used to have a Buckmark Camper. Very good pistol. Can't go wrong with either one. Get what feels the best and has best natural point of aim. Both are accurate and will last many years.
