Ruger 10103 MARK III Target 10+1 22LR 5.5"
[0103]
$433.00
by Albert G Date Added: Tuesday 19 June, 2012
First off, Buds shipped quickly and had the gun to my FFL within a week. Transaction was great. Buds had the best price on the Internet...at least the best that I could find.

The Firearm is VERY solid. Stainless steel top to bottom, excluding the grips (which I found out were not resistant to Break Free Power Blast Cleaning Solvent). The gun shoots VERY accurately. From a bench rest, I was able to punch out the bullseye of a target at 7 yards. The guy in the bay next to me asked if I shoot competitively! Sighting in the guy was easy, and the disassembly is relatively easy if you have a non-marring mallet. There are three issues with the gun that prevent me from giving it 5 stars. The first is that it doesn't like hollow-point ammo. It will catch at the bottom of the feed ramp and put a little smile cut on the nose of the bullet. This occurs probably once or twice a magazie with hollows. Round nose feeds without single problem after over one thousand round-nose rounds fired. The second issue may not be with the gun at all, but rather with the ammunition I used - I'll let the reader determine that for themselves. I shot 400+ rounds of Remington Thunderbolt round nose ammo, and noticed accuracy deteriorated significantly as I approached 500 rounds fired. When I went to clean the gun later that day, the cleaning rod couldn't get all the way through the barrel! Turns out there was significant lead fouling in the barrel, and this required 3+ hours of cleaning to get MOST of the lead out. I was shooting pretty quickly, and maybe the barrel was too hot for lead bullets, but I had not experienced this before. Now I shoot copper plated ammo, and haven't had a problem since. Lastly, the front sight came loose during a firing session. It could have been a problem had I lost the little screw, but luckily I noticed it was loose prior to it falling off. Cleaned it, put some blue threadlock on it, and it's been solid ever since. Even with all these issues, this gun is my first or second favorite gun.

Rating: 4 of 5 Stars! [4 of 5 Stars!]
