    Today I took my new Lipsey's Ruger Mark III to the range for the second time. This is the matte finish with silver colored aluminum grips. I am not much of a black gun guy, as most of my guns are stainless, but this is one of my favorite looking pistols I own.

    My apologies for the terrible iPhone pictures. I have now put ~400 hundred rounds through it without cleaning. It has been, as expected, flawless. My only grip are the all-black sites. The targets provided at our indoor range have the black center. Couple that with the overall poor lighting (and my tinted shooting glasses), I had a hard time seeing very well in there. The below target was at 25 feet. I am not the best shooter by any means, but I feel that the gun shoots very well. It is overall much smoother than some of my previous Ruger .22's. The bolt is very smooth to operate, and the fit and finish are better than I expected.

    Not too shabby shooting at all. I like the looks of that. As for the black sights you could always outline them in white and that should help. I still regret selling my old SS MKII. It was one of the best target pistols I've ever owned. I shot it at indoor bullseye matches for more than 10yrs without any issues what so ever. Dissasembly is a bit of a hassle at first but once you get the hang of it it's fine.

    I got one of those bull barrel Mark III's must have been about 8 years back now. Every time I shoot it I am reminded why I still have it. Dang that little thing is a shooter. It can shoot groups like that at 25 yards all day long. I use it every time I introduce someone new to pistol shooting. Its just so easy to handle and there is no kick at all. The action moving is all you feel and it gives a new shooter a realistic feel of a heavier piece of equipment. LOVE mine too. Thanks for the pics.

    Of all the current MK pistols made, that model is my favorite to look at.
