been shooting for a long time and ammo quality does matter. This was my first Ruger and I'd definitely buy another.
If put together properly at the factory: that MK lll should run close to flawless with the right upkeeping and ammo within par of most CCI- ( including bulk).
Like I stated- I don't recall a hiccup for the last few thousand rounds of ammo that I've shot. In the beginning I tried several bulk brands and premium,.. and from that- it has hinted me on to my constant use of CCI blazers, minimags, SV, and ocassional Velocitors.
From my experience and friends, i've honestly been more than satisfied with these semi's- they're my favorite pieces to shoot, and they are a lot more dependable than what most percieve of .22lr fire arms.
