Don't know about the 22/45, but I have shot the Ruger Mark III's.

Extremely accurate pistol -- used it hunting gophers out on the prairies of Montana.
When all you can see of the critter is his head sitting above his hole in the ground, you have a very small target to aim at. Could usually hit the critter and when I did miss, I usually blamed it on operator error and not the pistol.

And oh, BTW, this was using open sights.

Just my opinion though. . . . .

I put A scope on my single six and if I had it to do over I would put a red dot on it. I put a red dot on my 44 mag and think they are the greatest thing since sliced bread.

Eventually I will do the same with my single six in 17 HMR

Extreemly Accurate guns, I use open sights on my pistols seems to be faster at aquaring small moving targets with open sights.

You made a great choice with the 22/45 I agree w texasrem I prefer open sights & am not a fan of red dots but I do like the illuminated crosshairs
