Bought a Mark III today. I got the blued target model, as I was interested in something that would be fairly accurate, fun to shoot and cheaper to practice at the range with. I swap carry guns between a p-85 and a Springfield .45 compact model. I like to get to the range 2-3 times a month and the Mark III will keep me in practice a lot cheaper. Anybody else got experience the the Mark I, II or III series pistols?

I have a Mark I with the bull barrel and a Mark II with the long tapered target barrel. Both needed some attention to the trigger to eliminate the creep, but after that, they're fine target pistols.

The Mark III should be expected to perform pretty much the same, I would guess. I've never tried a Mark III, but have heard that disassemble/reassembly is a whole bunch more difficult than the previous 2 generations.

You heard right that they are a bear to take down and re-assemble. I used 2 different sets of instructions, one of which had pictures. Both were slightly different but after taking it apart, I could see what you had to do. Sort of like a jig saw puzzle. Shouldn't be too much of a problem after doing it several times.

I just bought a Mark III Hunter Friday and its SUPER accurate and after stripping it a few times it's not a bad as I 1st thought but it does take about 10 or 12 times of doing it before I really got it.

P85,
I've owned a MarkII for a good while now and it's about the most accurate 22 that I have. It hasn't jammed ,YET. With the exception of CCI Stingers ,it shoots even the cheapest loads extremely well.

Passport,

I've taken mine down a couple of times and usually wish I hadn't done it. After about 3 attempts, to get it back together, I have to lay it down and walk away from it to keep from pitching it out the window. Cool off a bit and it seems to fall back together!
