    which one would you keep?

    buddy at work wants a .22 semi pistol. I've got a few so I told him I might sell one of my Rugers. I've got 2 4 inch standards with 4 inch regular barrels. 1 is earlier version 1 later. mag button on different sides. all things being equal which one to sell?
    I also picked up a ruger MK2 22/45 target but I think .keeping that one.
    I told him.$200 with 1 mag, no box. jim

    I really like my 22/45 so wouldn’t sell that one. Otherwise I would ask him a preference.

    I like the older guns since you can still buy magazines for them. I really don't like the new semi with a loaded chamber indicator but live with the jams as the gun is a light weight.

    As a collector piece the MkI is getting difficult to find. As a shooter the MkII is better for the last shot slide catch. They are all bears to field strip until the latest version, which has its own issues.

    Keep both Standard Autos - you can always find the 22/45 later.

    the 22/45 is the earlier mk2 version. which I just bought and havent even shot yet
    I would rather keep the better of the 2 since I think in giving him a pretty good deal if I sell one. jim

    If you have 2 standards I would keep them. The early production rugers are in my opinion far superior to the more modern offerings. Of course I have also always thought the 22/45 isn't anything special anyway.

    I lucked into one of these that my Father-in-law will be getting for christmas. He has an old Mk 1 Target that he always talks about wanting one with a shorter barrel.
