Well, I was going to get a Ruger 22/45 - but Mike at Champion told me I'd probably need a ruber mallet to get it apart in the beginning.

Anyway - I rented a Buckmark, and liked it a lot. When I compred the feel of the Ruger grip to the Browning - I liked the Browning better. And, with the easier disassembly - it was a plus.

I can't say that it never jams. But, it works about 85% of the time. I only have about 700 rounds thru it. It's just a 22, so I'm not expecting 100% reliability out of it, like I demand from my other guns. And, it may get better with more use.

I have a mark II and I think i got it for $159.00 back in 1990. It has NEVER jammed and It is very accurate. Yes... It is a liitle problematic to reassemble after cleaning but well worth the trouble. :? 22s are great to practice with.

Everyone needs a .22 pistol and rifle, they are way too fun.

I have a Mark II, love it, if I didn't have a Mark II already I would get the III.

When they are brand new youll have no problem taking it apart to field stripping it, but have fun getting it back together :lol:

My first time I went back to the gun shop with the it apart.

Here's a pic of my old Ruger..Clark internals and trigger, Clark magazine release conversion, German silver grips made by a friend for me up in Vermont.
This gun is deadly accurate! A fun pistol to shoot!

Ship - It shouldn't jam 15% of the time. Mine is just about 100% jam free and I don't even clean it that often. I don't even remember any jamming problems when it was new.
