I agree, The Ruger is the better of the two but not by much. I would choose the Tarus though unless I could get a used Ruger. I refuse to by new Rugers because they sold us down the river with the high cap mag pre ban.
If you want one, why not look for a used one and tell Ruger about it. Not that they will give a ****.
I shoot a Ruger Mark II w/bull barrel and it's quite accurate. I've shot other 22 pistols and the closest comparison gun I've fired was a 22 High Standard. I still like the Mark II better by far. It's reliable and accurate.
I had a slab side for a couple of years but needed money and sold to my dad. He likes it so much he won't part with it for any reason son I'm looking for a good replacement thats not so much $. I like the idea of putting on a red dot site for my eyes are not as good as they used to be and they help. So would the Buckmark work better because of the rail. I just sold my pool stick and there a show this weekend and I need to get some ideas.
By the way THANKS for all the help with the ideas
on everything, I just about have my 10/22 done.
Just have to put in the extractor and hammer
I have had a 5 1/2" bull barrel for 15 years and it looks like crap now-a-days from being carried and used, but that gun will still shoot better than most people can hold it.
The last time I shot it at 50 meters off of a bench and pistol rest, I was keeping the shots in a 1 1/2" group for the most part with many groups going well under an inch. this was with inexpensive ammo. May have to see what it would do with Tenex! lol
I have both, love both. Tracker is WMR and used mainly for sport shooting. Will probably add a scope after trigger job is completed. Ruger is primarily for paper punching. May add a reflex red dot, maybe not... not a lot of difference between them for accuracy, both are great.
My 14 year old daughter loves the Ruger and does not like the Taurus. It feels barrel heavy to her.
It kind of depends on what you like to do when plinking. If you like to rip through a magazine as quick as possible get the Ruger. If you want something a little more deliberate get the Taurus. As super reliable the Rugers are I've never seen a wheel gun "jam". Something else to think about is cleaning. Rugers are a pain in the @#$ to take apart and put together. I haven't taken mine apart in a year I just clean what I can reach with Q-tips. I have a Ruger MkII and a Single Six I always bring one or the other when I shoot. I've fired one of the new High Standards, they are really nice. Good shooter, super easy to take apart (push the button) and my friend's has never jammed on him.
...the weight factor of the bull-bbl. The target models with the longer tapered bbls. are lighter to carry and offer a greater sight radius.Generally speaking, pistols will offer greater accuracy than a wheelgun in .22. My favorite Rugers are still the 4" models. :t
