    If I had to unload all my Ruger .22 pistols these few would be the last to go. They are fun little guns.
    MD,

    You certainly have a great "keeper collection" of Mk's...bet they all shoot superbly!!

    Unfortunately, I have an original RST Vintage 9-round mag (came with my used standard), with the solid pressed-in and pinned silver base plate! Going to leave it well enough alone, as I have "6" MkII mags to use with my Standard and MkI Target 6 7/8". Some members on RFC state it is a Collectable, so that Vintage mag will be relinquished as a safe queen investment (especially with the going E-Bay prices)!!

    +1 on the vintage mags, donít cut the follower on those. I have a few originals that I wouldnít dare touch. The newer Ruger MKI mags have a plastic base plate that I actually had to trim for them to fit.
    I havenít found a standard that isnít a great shooter, but the government model and target with those bull barrels arenít really my favorites. Definitely donít wanna carry those in the field.

    Hope everyone had a Blessed Thanksgiving. We did, especially the "Dirty Bird" feast Thursday night!!

    Seems I have "No Bad Apples" in the whole Ruger Mk Bunch. Best accuracy is with the 6 7/8" longer barrels, especially the Hunter with the RDR scope. Even the 4.4" Lite uppers shoot surprisingly tight groupings. Any limitations aren't on these fine .22 shooters, it's on Me...probably, always will be!

    22/45 mags are not different. Mark 3 hunter mag on the left, 22/45 on the right. Only base plates are different.

    I swapped MkIV regular mag and 22/45 mag base plates. The mag bodies themselves are the same, interchangeable (after switching the bases) and able to be used in either the MkIV standard steel or the 22/45 "1911" configurations. If you have a heavy stock of one type of mag but need more of the other, just change the base plates, like from WG!

    Merry Christmas to You and Yours!!!

    Yeah, that’s the difference. I think I already mentioned the bodies being the same. Whether you have to reverse the thumb button/spring assist or change the floor plate.

    But where do you get the floor plates? I can get any of the Ruger brand mags for these pistols for about $20, which is pretty cheap as mags go, but I don’t see any mag parts available.
