Ruger Mark III pistols represent the evolution of Ruger .22 LR pistols, continuing the legacy created by the Ruger Standard, Mark I, and Mark II pistols and yet 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 and receiver connection, an automatic bolt-hold-open latch, a rugged steel grip frame, a contoured ejection port, easy-to-grasp tapered bolt ears, and rigidly mounted sights for consistent accuracy. The Mark III Target’s patented loaded target indicator provides visual and tactile indication that chamber is loaded. Its smoothly contoured, comfortable grip has a natural pointing angle with checkered, non-slip grip panels providing a non-slip hold and the internal cylindrical bolt construction ensures permanent alignment and higher accuracy potential than conventional moving-slide designs. This variant comes with hand-filling laminated target grips. Two 10-round magazines and a hard plastic case come standard.
