My new (used) Ruger .22

Had this passed down to me from my Father In Law. Put about 40 rounds through it and it shoots great.

Nice-looking gun. Is it a Mk. II or Mk. III?

My first gun was a used Mk. II Target. I still have it and have shot many thousands of rounds through it. It has been reliable and accurate, even with bulk ammo.

Don't chicken out on the field stripping it to clean it either. Don't be afraid to tap the muzzle (being careful not to hit the front sight) with a mallet to get it apart the first few times. After that, it loosens up and is not a problem. Then, you can clean the barrel from the breech and thoroughly clean up the innards after they're filthy from shooting the bulk ammo. Follow the instructions to use gravity to help you get the gun apart, and you'll be a happy camper.

Be sure to post some targets soon!

Nice looking. The Ruger Targer Models are tack drivers for sure.

Thanks for the replys, it is a great weapon. My boys have really enjoyed shooting it (mostly water fillied bottles). I don't have a manual for it but I'm sure that I can find one easy enough.
