That's a nice looking gun, and seems to be decently accurate. Sorry to hear about the reliability troubles. Hopefully it will wear in and start performing better for you. I've always wanted a reliable service-style .22, but have yet to find one in my price range.

My Ruger MKII is excellent...reliable, accurate, and fun to shoot. But with it's goofy grip angle and heel mag release, it doesn't exactly serve as a good rimfire training replica for my carry stuff. It's still good marksmanship practice and fun as heck to shoot, though.

7 yards doesn’t tell much about accuracy potential to do that you need 50 feet minimum and preferably 25 or 50 yards. That is what separates the ok guns from great ones.
The malfunctioning may clear as the gun breaks in. I don’t believe anyone would expect one of these to run standard velocity target ammo until well broken in if ever.

Thanks. Yeah, probably more accurate than my ability Wink

I expect it will. That last 13-14 rounds with only one failure was encouraging. Prior to that I think the best I got was 5-6 rounds w/o a failure.

BTDT. Been there and been doing that for years. Finally decided to pay good money for (what I hope will be) a good pistol. We shall see.

I've a Ruger Mk I that's the same way. My Mk I has had trigger work (light and breaks like glass) and I replaced the stock rear sight with a target model rear sight. It was actually that pistol for which I bought four different kinds of match ammo to test. In fact <looks around...> here's a picture I posted previously:

I dunno. Printing five rounds in a nearly straight line seems pretty promising Smile (That was with Eley match ammo, btw.)

Fifty feet I might be able to do. I'm afraid twenty-five yards with open sights with my eyes is probably a non-starter, much less fifty. Heck, fifty yards is about my limit, precision shooting, with a rifle with an RDS.

That and proper lube.

There are varying field reports. Some people have had good success with a wide variety of ammo, some have experienced ammo sensitivity to the point theirs ran well only with higher-velocity ammo. I guess I'll find out.

I hope it ends up running well. It's a lot of fun to shoot Smile

That's a beautiful MKI! Looks like it's a shooter, too. I'm beginning to feel the need for a rimfire stage in the postal match at some point... Smile

Thanks! It is Smile

There's a long story behind that Mk I. It's been back to Ruger twice:

First time was when it had been sitting in a foam-lined case. Still not sure what happened, to this day, but I went to open the case, something had interacted with something and the metal was all covered in brown, bubbly, crusty stuff and the bluing eaten-off. Sent in to Ruger for re-bluing. (To this day I refuse to use foam-lined cases because of that incident.)

The second time was when a friend tried to tune the trigger. He botched it. Well, the thing had always been a stone bitch to get the barrel separated from the frame and back together again, anyway, so back to Ruger it went. They fixed all that up and it came back with a dream trigger Smile

I'd originally bought it to shoot .22 cal. metal silhouette.

Sounds like a plan Smile
