New to me, so $339!! I've been looking at these New for almost a year now, so it was a no brainer when I realized she was barely used.

I'm a Big fan of the mkII's! My dad has had one for years and it has always been my go to gun when I'm visiting.
This baby is going to have multiple purposes, but for the most part it will be my accuracy gun. Hell it shoots better than I can now, add a couple upgrades (not that she needs it) and I'll be a happy man.

Those are absolute tack drivers and rugged as all get out. I have an older 22/45 that I've put so many tens of thousands of rounds through that I lost count. It has been a great investment. I think you'll really enjoy it.

I've got a new blue/black version of the same. As already stated; it is a tack driver!


. . but I'm having some teething problems. They seem to be lessening in frequency now, but for a while there I couldn't get a magazine full of ammo through it without failures to feed to save my soul. It looked like they were hanging up well below the feed lips in the magazine, but as soon as I'd hit the magazine release to strip the mag, the round would free up and pop nicely up into the lips just like it should be.

I tried several different brands and bullet styles. Before I could begin to really nail down what it did and did not like, it started reducing in frequency with all my ammo brands/types.

Here, probably 600-700 rounds into it, I may have one or two FTF in 100 rounds.

Oh, and yes, I broke it down, thoroughly cleaned and lubricated it - including the magazines - before I ever fired it the first time.

Anyway, it is for sure coming around and I am very very happy with it. I think that you will be happy with your too. Congratulations!

Sweet! I have been thinking about getting a hand gun for several years now and just never did it. All we have are the deer rifles and an occasional 22.

Very nice! As a fan of the 1911, I really like the .22-45. I've wanted one for a while, but I can't justify it because my Buckmark is also a great gun. Now if I could convince the wife I need TWO .22 pistols...

-Thanks for the heads up Captain! No prob's so far but I'll definitely keep an eye out.

-I looked at the Buckmark's as well, great guns!! I knew I couldn't go wrong either way but this particular model is one I've been eyeing up for a while, so the decision didn't take to long

-ohh, and miss farmer, I do believe it's time to add a handgun to the collection. Just do it....do it.


do it.

Those single six's are great guns. I can't think of what is more fun than a good .22 revolver
