Ruger 10140 22/45 Target 10+1 22LR 5.5"
by Jeffrey C Date Added: Wednesday 05 September, 2012
I have run 800 rds through this gun and had only a single FTF and that was a malformed bulk shell.
The gun is inherantly accurate but for a target gun has a lousy trigger pull due to the lawyer-inspired utterly-useless Mark III magazine safety. After putting up with the trigger pull for a couple of hundred rounds I went ahead and spent the $74 dollars and replaced the sear, hammer, and hammer bushing with Volquertson Mark II components and discarded the magazine safety. Now the gun shoots beautifully and magazines slide out like they should. It is now enjoyable and satisfying to shoot.
The modification also makes reassembly easier because you are not inserting and removing the magazine constantly putting it togather. BTW: If you enjoy chinese puzzles, you will love field stripping and reassemblying this gun.
I can only give this gun 3 stars because of the Mark III issues. It is Not a target gun out of the box.
Today, given my experience with Ruger's Mark III "Enhancements" I would choose the Browning Buckmark.

The actual sale transaction with Bud's was great; easy and smooth and I have become a repeat customer.
