Purchase & Shipping:
Absolutely fantastic, I've been pining over this pistol for some time; when my finances loosened up enough to get it I jumped on it. I signed up for an account that day, signed up for the VIP service, and ordered the pistol all in less than 10 minutes. It really went as smooth as smooth can go. It was shipped to a pawn shop less than 3 minutes from where I live within 3 days of ordering...talk about FAST!! Its was brand shiny new in the box, zipped up in a cool black canvas Ruger zipperbag, 2 clips, a Ruger lock & keys, internal safety keys, 1 tiny allen wrench & a partridge in a pear tree.
Beautiful, fires like a champ, accurate, durable, this is something I see myself passing down to my grandkids in perfect working condition & I'm only 31. Please note that this has a composite (plastic) frame, I'm not complaining at all, just thought you may want to consider that if you didn't see it in the description. especially considering my next category...
HOLY COW...let me start by saying that I make a habit of firing all my girls out of the box without peeking under the hood, then I take them home and take my time getting to know them. I've hit some snags with pistols before, but more often than not pistols are pretty intuitive about how they come apart and go back together. NOT SO with this baby. PLEASE REALIZE that when you watch the youtube videos on how to field strip this thing, theirs have been stripped enough to break in and make it appear easy-ish, yours will be brand spankin new and everything will be SUPER TIGHT and SUPER SNUG, this will ease up after a few teardowns, but just be ready for a bit of a trial the first couple of times. Pay VERY close attention to the youtube instructions on re-assembly, pointing up or pointing down matters depending on what step you're on; magazine in or magazine out matters, its very nuanced for a pistol, but once you get it down pat, it wont take you long to clean it, just dont give up.
Definitely pick up "The Ultimate Cliploader" from ama-zon or somewhere, you can literally load your MK III magazine in a few seconds without tearing up your fingers, its awesome. get a small plastic hammer for the breakdown, I'm so serious, that first time is brutal.
This is probably the most solid .22lr pistol out there, you won't regret it if you buy it.
