Ruger 22/45 and Bullseye

Is The Ruger MK III 22/45 legal for bullseye competion with the 6 7/8" barrel? I think that it has something to do with the sight radius but, I don't have one available to measure. I own a the 5.5" barrel.

Thanks.

My question is the barrel length too long.

As noted, it is legal. As long as the barrel is less than 10" it is competition legal. Is it necessary to have a long barrel? No. If you are intending to shoot using iron sights, however, then the longer barrel will provide a longer sight radius which may help accuracy. Nowadays many, maybe most, Bullseye shooters are using red dot sights and the need for long sight radii is not a factor.
One of the most successful Bullseye .22s, the Hammerli 208, has a 150mm (about six inches) barrel. Another very successful pistol, the H-S Victor has a 5.5 inch barrel.

I shot one in bullseye last year and had good results with Wolf match target ammo. I went to a 41 Smith for this year but all the 22/45 needed was a trigger job and it would have bee fine.
