This really belongs in a rimfire section, but we don't seem to have one. To answer your question, you would be very happy with the hunter. I have had very good luck with the Ruger semi auto pistols. Love them.

Not exactly what you asked, but I have a MKII stainless with 5.5 inch bull barrel and I love it.

The 5.5 inch barrel balances very well for me.

This Ruger replaced a tapered 6 7/8" blued target model which was accurate but I like the bull barrel more. (didn't care for the barrel band front sight on the tapered barrel model.) Both pistols are accurate and reliable.

We get pretty good accuracy from the MK3 standard. We have a blast with it. And I really like the old school look.

Its not what you have, or where you have it,
Its who you are, that counts

I'm really considering getting one of these to go with my ruger 10/22.
