Have 2 MkIIs, great handguns. Thought about the MkIV but cannot justify changing.

Well, I tried. I went back to the store, and the mk2 was gone. They had a mk1 and a mk3 22/45. They wanted $300 for the mk1, and were only going to give me $200 for my SR22. I looked at the gun, but it was pretty rough and absolutely filthy. The bore was so bad you couldn't see any rifling at all. It's possible it would have cleaned up, but with me looking at having to drop $100 out of pocket on top of my trade, I didn't want to take the risk of discovering what years of obvious neglect had wrought.

The MK3 was in better shape, and they were only asking $220 for it, but I didn't like the plastic receiver or the LCI and mag disconnect stupidity, so I passed on that one too. I'll keep my eyes open...I'm sure something will come along.

I've a Ruger Mk I. First handgun I ever bought/owned. Thing digests anything and shoots like a dream. Personally, I think the take-down/reassembly woes people complain about are way overblown.

I have several Rugers. Ruger and Sig are my two favourite firearms makers.

That being said: I'm going to suggest something outrageous. You might wish to consider taking a close look at the Taurus TX22. I've read nothing but praise for that new little 22. American Rifleman just did a review of it and Taurus' new 9mm. I skipped the 9mm review, because I'm not in the market. The TX22 review read just like everything else I've read about the pistol. I think I'm going to own a TX22 eventually.

In fact: I might well have had one on order with one of my LGS' right this moment if I hadn't spent so much money on Other Things lately.

Yes, by all means get a MKII, and then get a Volquartzen trigger kit for it.

I put one in my MKII Competition model, it will amaze you.

^^^^^^^^^^

I had three MkIIIs and all had Volquartsen triggers installed even before I fired a single round. Also while having the guns in pieces, removed the mag disconnects (using a Sam bushing), removed the Loaded Chamber Indicators, and replaced the extractors with Kidd parts. I referred to my MkIIIs as Mk2.5s.

There have been numerous reported problems with barrel quality resulting in heavy leading and loss of accuracy on the TX22 and wear issue on the slide concerns alnong with complaints about their customer service. To me it makes much more sense to spend a little extra for the Ruger or Browning Buckmark as they are far superior and much more accurate pistols.

Absolutely.
I taught my daughter how to shoot with the very same POS pistol. It was cheap, taught her basics but it eventually got replaced by a good Ruger.
After learning basics, she was happier than Hell to have a good pistol.
She moved on to a 380 and eventually a 9mm.


I'd rather be hated for who I am than loved for who I'm not.

That's disappointing. I guess I'll pass, then.

Depends on your goals. I am an instructor and I always carry an SR22 with me for my students. Why? It’s has a slide that operates like most semi autos, had an SA/DA trigger, and a decocker. All great features in a gun. If you can shoot one well, you can shoot almost anything.

As to the MK series guns, I have a lot of experience with those as well. The MK2 is a great classic. However, it is needlessly heavy, hard to take down and will frustrate you. There is a reason it is only $200.

I would suggest that you consider a 22/45 Lite model. Your son will likely appreciate the ease of use a lot better. It’s an awesome gun to shoot and a lot you can do with one. You will need to pay out of pocket and I wouldn’t expect to get an even trade on the MK2 anyway. A basic MK22/45 is great. But I can be easily modded into a great performance gun that can be used for either bullseye or steel plate. It also can accept an RMR with ease too.

Frankly, if you start with the MK 2 you will end up with a 22/45 anyway Smile

Another good 22 option I also use a tom is a Walther PPQ .22. It’s a full-size gun just like a PPQ with a 5”.

Good luck!
