Trying Out An Unconventional Scope On The Ruger Mk III




The factory sights have to come off to mount this scope on the Mk III.  Bag 'em and put them in a safe place with a label in the bag.


Your thumb goes under the frame.  The barrel gets a bit warm in long shooting sesssions, but this grip stays cool.

That grip is known as the "Taco Hold" here in Arizona. It is very popular in International Handgun Metallic Silhouette shooting. It helps when you're trying to hit a 1/2 scale ram at 100 yards with a .22 pistol.

Kevin: I just took a quick look at their site,and will have to go back for more. I see one of the concerns is keeping your hand back from the muzzle; I thought about that pretty hard, too. Anchoring against the trigger guard is good, and the large front objective on the scope is also a good safety factor. It would probably be a good idea to install a longer barrel, or a long flash suppressor...

Mine is a 5.5" heavy-barreled MkII target with a Tasco red dot. I have no problem keeping my hand away from the muzzle. A longer barrel would probably be helpful in taking down the 100 yard rams, though.
