    Anyone done this?
    It just sounds like it would be a very fun gun.
    Thanks

    I have a MkIII with an UltraDot and target grips. Overall, I prefer irons and revolvers, so it doesn't get shot that often. Still, it serves it's niche well.

    I had one on mine for a while, worked great. I had to take it off because I didn't have a case it would fit in with the optic mounted :rolleyes:

    That's a very popular combo for competition shoots in my area. I have a 2x Leupold scope on mine. Not quite as fast, but better to multipurpose to long distance handgunning.

    I did it just for fun with a really cheap red-dot sight on my mkIII ... lots of fun, now I need a better red-dot and to put it on with some serious loc-tite, I just can't commit to the extra cost or the bulk ... maybe I need a dedicated upper?

    Ultradot on a heavily 'smithed Mark II Target with Herrett target grips, here. It's a great competition gun, and has kept up with much more expensive .22 target pistols.

    But I keep a couple of 22/45s with their standard target irons, also, one with a short bull barrel, and one with a long slabside bull barrel. I don't really use the red dot, or the gun it's on, for anything but local club leagues and NRA Bullseye shooting.

    I put a Weigand weaver mount and my old Trijicon Reflex sight on my 4" tapered barrel MK II. Didn't like it, took it off.
    Considering the Burris Fastfire and MK II specific mount because it's so much smaller than the other mount and sight.

    A lot of fun, up close, fifty yards, or trying to bust clay birds on the berm at 100 yards. Probably the most fun at the lowest operating cost of any pistol I own. It is a fun and easy way to get 500 rounds of practice in a single session.:D

    You see someone competing with that combination in virtually every match in my indoor Bullseye leagues.

    I have one on my Mark II and love it. Lay it over a car hood and shoot a one hole group with NO problem.

    I have two .22 pistols with red dots on them. (Old eyes:mad:) I can hit clay pigeons on the 100 yard berm with regularity. (50 yards is too easy) Lots of cheap fun. I have a Trailside and a Buckmark, but the Rugers are fine guns as well.

    Why not? You have to use a no-smith mount like mine if your M II isn't factory drilled and tapped. I also have an Ultimate Clip Loader for fast mag loading if you want to heat up the barrel really fast!

    I have a Mark II done by Clark Custom and it's a great shooter.

    I had a cheap BSA on a MK III-22/45 that was absolutly boring to shoot it was so accurate.

    Had one on a 22/45 for about 10 years. Just recently took it off (month ago). I don't miss it by any means, but it was always lots of fun with the reddot on.

    I say go for it and try it out.
