Keith , yes, that is a fine looking group, Yes, glad we could help you, sorry you missed out some time back when my wife Laura was 'thinning the herd' and sold off many of her old models, "D" guns, 5 1/4" guns, muzzle breaks and such of the .22 autos........ she only kept the real early "red eagles" 1949 to 1951. I have a couple of the newer 'Anniversary model 49-99' and the 'NRA Endowment' gun. I feel they are "keepers"......
thankls for sharing and let us know just what else you may be "looking for" and we'll keep an eye out for them for you.....

Merry Christmas

The Ruger 22 auto is probably the crowning achievement of Bill Ruger, wouldn't you say? I can't
remember how much they sold for when Ruger introduced them, but it wasn't very much. Probably
about $30.00 or so.Wasn't it the first firearm that he made?

Really nice group Keith! Ruger makes a lot of nice guns - none better than the .22 auto series.

The Hunter is my target pistol, I use it at the range. I carry the '72 in a holster when I am hiking through the woods.

Nice group! What do ya' think about the 'Hi Viz' sight on the Hunter?
the Hi-Vis sights are nice. It's a good break up on the background, and provides a quick sight aperture. Between the hi-vis sights and the fluted barrel, the hunter is cream of the crop in this category of .22 plinker's.

Very nice. I've wanted a Ruger MK for 20 years...Last Saturday, I finally bought one (22/45 with 4.5" bbl). It should be a nice addition to my 10/22 and my SP-101.

I've seen at least one of these and a few others in the last month. Let me know a price range for each one and I'll pay more attention next time I see one.

I know I can get them if I am willing to pay top dollar, so I just monitor gunbroker waiting for a good deal to arise. I also have connections to a pawn shop, and they call me anytime a non-mark III comes in. Just time and being patient.
