Simply stated, Ruger Mark III Pistols offer the most versatility and value of any rimfire pistol on the market today. The Mark III pistols represents the evolution of Ruger 22 LR pistols, continuing the legacy created by the Ruger Standard, Mark I and Mark II pistols, while incorporating many new engineering refinements. They are simple, rugged, and affordable, making them a great value for any sporting purpose-whether target shooting, plinking or small game hunting. Features include: a rigid barrel/receiver connection; an automatic bolt-hold-open latch; a comfortable, rugged steel grip frame; a contoured ejection port; easy-to-grasp tapered bolt ears; and rigidly mounted sights for consistent accuracy. This special edition Mark III features a unique slabsided barrel, Ruger eagle wing grips, and an adjustable rear sight.
