Keith , that is one serious looking 10/22.... bet it shoots great too.

I'd do that but we have both lefties and righties in the family and we do swap it around if need be. I know it's a pain, but for me my left eye is dominant, I'm basically left handed, Uncle Sam taugh me to shoot right handed, (they had NO left handed guns in the Air Force)

How long have you had the Taurus .44 mag?...and how does it hold up to full power loads in comparison to say a Ruger or Smith?
I have had the Taurus M44 for a year or so. Put around 300-400 rounds thru it. This Taurus M44 has the ported barrel to reduce recoil and improve accuracy. Everyone who shoots this pistol is hitting coke cans at 25 meters.

I believe the Mark III Hunter is the finest Ruger Mark to date.

Why do you think that? [?]

I think the MK II is a much better gun, I've "converted" several MK III's to the MK II hammer and NO mag safety. I don't like the loaded chamber indicator either, I'd rather have the solid receiver.

Sure, some of the new 'safety' features are worthless, but overall I am very impressed with it. The changable fiber-optic sights, and fluted barrel alone puts it #1 in my book.

How does the fluted barrel compare to the slab side weight and balance wise?

The slab-side is a very good gun. I would say it is the second best Ruger Mark pistol. I have never owned a slab-side (but will probably get one tomorrow), but I think the differences will be that the slab is lighter, but the hunter has better cooling and better sights. I prefer a heavier barrel, because it has a tendancy to not bounce as much with my breathing.

Are you getting a MK III or MK II? My wife has a MK II slab side with the fiber optic front/target rear sights. Have you looked at those?

Either. Just looking for one to add to the Ruger Mark collection.
