That is so sw-we-ee-et! I have a Ruger MK III Hunter 22 LR that I target practice with and I love it. There is a Ruger forum like this XD forum -- I think the discussion is better on this one but it's good to know its there. Congrats on the gun!

Sweet,
I looked at a Hunter, 6 7/8 inch barrel.
Bass Pro had it. Three days later, they raised the price $57.
Went home empty handed, not because of not having the money.....
Kills me that every few days they raise ammo prices or gun prices.
I know what they can use for a fishing pole holder.

You'll love it.... I have one just like it...

Now go to your local Box store and get 10 boxes of 22LR because you're gonna need it.

With that said...... I have noticed that WallyWorld has "REALLY" jacked the price up on the 550 box of 22LR......... while a few others have gone down...... not that one......

I've got a MKIII in silver with the black grips. PITA to take down and put back together the first few times, but awesome shooter.

Congrats on the new MKIII. It looks really nice! I still have the old MKII and I like it. They make great guns. So who sells .22lr at a decent price anymore?

Ain't that the truth?

When I was reading the owner's manual and there was a line in there about how you might have to lightly tap the receiver with a rubber mallet while resting the barrel on a piece of soft wood I was just thinking "Nahhhhh. It can't be that bad!"

Three hours later--yes I did end up using the rubber mallet and piece of pine--I finally had the thing back together. The scenario was:
  1. Attempt to insert bolt retaining pin and fold mainspring assembly back into grip.
  2. Become frustrated.
  3. Realize I was getting p.o.ed and think "I'd better stop before I break something."
  4. Walk away for a half hour.
  5. Repeat.
