A week ago, I took my (beloved) stainless Ruger Mark II down to the gunshow and traded it in (plus boot) for the new Mark III Hunter. Some features I like about this gun, some I don't. I think the gunlock on the left side of the firearm is rather pointless, why? I think if a child gets a hold of the gun (locked or not!) you already failed in gun control. After shooting a few hundred rounds thru it, I've found the gun to be the best Mark series to date, and I've owned quite a few of these guys as well.

I think I will stick with my MK 2. I just do not care for that infernal internal lock.

I went with the hunter entirely on the fluted barrel. The internal lock is just a feature I wont use.

I wouldn't worry to much about the gun lock issuse. Unlock it and throw the key back in the box, and forget about it. I am hoping to get get a Mark next year. I am way over budget for this year when it comes to guns.

I figure on picking me up a MKII or a 22/45.

Try to get a competiton slab, or hunter model. They seem to hold their value best.

I like the looks of the hunter model.

The hunter comes in 22/45 as well. So you get the 1911 grip with the fluted barrel. I prefer the luger grip.

I just recently got a Mark III Hunter and it is awesome. The internal lock can simply be ignored. I installed a Mark II hammer and bushing, Volquartsen sear and trigger and the trigger is right at 2 pounds. This also gets rid of the mag disconnect.

Why did you install a Mark II hammer and bushings if these weren't upgrades?

After buying a liberty gun safe and henry rifle I have to wait until next spring to buy my next want. It will be a hunter or competition model. My shooting buddy just bought a new buck mark but on another forum I heard a few shooters question the reliability of them. I'll stay with the rugers.

I was at the Sportsman Warehouse again this morning, just looking. The 22/45 fits my budget but I fell in love with the Mark lll Hunter. Nothing else will do, guess I'll have to wait a little longer.

I say go with the Hunter. I love mine.
