A Tradition of Excellence. Since the design first debuted back in 1949 with the Mark I pistol, Ruger .22s have been some of the most popular rimfire target shooting and plinking pistols on the market. The Mark III series represents the evolution of the original Ruger .22 pistol design, incorporating many new engineering refinements. Most of the changes featured in the Mark III pistol are safety-related. It has a disconnect that prevents the pistol from being fired when the magazine is removed from the weapon. Unfortunately, some inexperienced shooters believe that removing the magazine from a pistol unloads the weapon, but there can still remain a cartridge in the chamber. The magazine disconnect safety prevents an inexperienced shooter from discharging the weapon negligently, even after removing the magazine.

Another safety feature that Ruger has introduced into the Mark III design is an internal key lock. This system works when the key is inserted (after the thumb safety is applied) into a hole just below the thumb safety, and then rotated. This prevents the thumb safety from being slid into the "FIRE" position until the internal lock is disengaged with the key. This key lock can be used if the owner desires, or ignored if the owner chooses not to use such a device. The fact is that some jurisdictions here in the United States require such an internal lock mechanism. Ruger has provided this internal lock for those who desire its use, but it is very unobtrusive for those who choose to not to.

The third safety feature added to the Ruger Mark III pistol is a loaded chamber indicator. This is a thin metal bar, the rear of which protrudes slightly from the left side of the receiver when a cartridge is present in the chamber. This device can be easily seen, and can also be felt with the shooter's finger. The bar is activated by a spring-loaded piece of steel that touches the rim of the chambered cartridge. Another added feature of the Mark III pistol is the placement of the magazine release button. The magazine catch has been moved from the heel of the grip frame to a position on the left side of the frame, just behind the trigger guard. This is where the magazine release should be on an auto pistol, and is a very welcome feature. When the button is pressed, with the thumb of a right-handed shooter or the forefinger of a left-handed shooter, the magazine drops free of the frame. The loading button on the left side of the magazine follower is also larger than that of the Mark II pistols, and aids in easily loading the magazine to its ten round capacity.

The Ruger Mark III Standard has a stainless steel construction and a 4.75" tapered barrel. It is a simple, rugged and affordable design that makes it perfect for target shooting, plinking or small game hunting. Simply stated, Mark III Pistols offer the most versatility and value of any rimfire pistol on the market today. With a rigid barrel-to-receiver connection, automatic bolt hold open latch and rugged steel frame, it is the perfect combination of proven design and reliability. The Mark Standard III comes equipped with a contoured ejection port, easy-to-grasp tapered bolt ears and low profile fixed iron sights. Checkered polymer grips provide a solid hold, even for sweaty hands.The pistol is also drilled and tapped and is supplied with two ten round magazines.
