The Ruger MK III Target Semi-Auto Rimfire Pistol delivers superb performance with the same basic design as Ruger's Standard 22 pistol that initiated the growth of the renown firearms manufacturer over 50 years ago. Ruger 22 semi-automatic pistols, from the Standard and MK I to the MK II and MK III models, have become the most widely used 22 pistols ever produced. They are cherished for plinking, small game hunting, both informal and formal target shooting, and they have even seen use by the US Military. The MK III utilizes Ruger's proven internal cylindrical bolt and fixed barrel design, that provides a higher accuracy potential over designs with sights mounted on a cycling slide by ensuring the pistol's sights stay in permanent alignment. The MK III Target comes with a precision rear target sight that's fully adjustable for windage and elevation, and a vertical post, modified Patridge-style front sight; the sights are easy to see and allow for precise shooting at small targets. The top of the receiver is drilled and tapped for easy installation of the included Weaver-style scope base if the shooter desires to use optical sights. The weight of the bull barrel aids to hold the pistol steady, and balances superbly with the pistol's steel frame. The angle of the grip allows the shooter to point the pistol naturally and acquire the sights quickly. Checkered grip panels provide a solid non-slip hold on the pistol in any environment. The MK III has several safety features, making it an extremely safe 22 pistol. A loaded chamber indicator on the side of the receiver indicates when the chamber is loaded by sight or touch. A manual thumb safety locks the sear, while allowing the pistol to be loaded and unloaded when engaged. A magazine disconnect prevents the pistol from firing once the magazine is removed. And, an internal key lock renders the pistol totally inoperable. The Ruger MK III Target Semi-Auto Rimfire Pistol is a rugged and reliable firearm that gives a lifetime of service. Comes with two 10-round magazines. Made in USA.
