Had a MK III 22/45 that I really liked but it was stolen. The one thing I didn't like was the trigger. Because of that I replaced it with a Buck Mark Camper. It has a much better trigger than the Ruger had and I am more accurate with it. I truly believe the Ruger/Browning debate is as close to Ford/Chevy as you can get. I do not have plans to do any customizing to the Buck Mark. If I were going to customize a .22 pistol I would buy a Ruger.
I comprehend how a projectile can, “lose velocity", but don't understand how a projectile can, "loose velocity".
