Default Ruger MKIII sights

I want to replace my sights on the Ruger hunter/target mark III with whatever is good for the .22 EIC.

And later have some trigger work done, any Gun Smith preferred

Any suggestions for this pistol

Looking at my Mark III (model 10101) it appears that the front sight is just attached using one screw.
You might check with Ruger and confirm it, but you should be able to replace the sight on your Hunter with the standard blade front sight from the 10101, if it is screwed in the same way.
No need to replace the rear sight. I know the small screw slot is a pain, but the std sights give you a pretty good sight picture. Once you are sighted in for 25 yards, there are no click adjustments for the 50 yard slow fire, even with std velocity ammo.
You can replace the Ruger trigger with a Volquartsen trigger kit. There on lots of videos on Youtube on how to do it. If I can do it, anyone can. Replacing mine, reduced the Ruger factory setting from 5 pounds down to 2 and a half.
The only other mod I did was replace the Loaded Chamber Indicator with a blank adapter from Tandemkross.com
This is the Youtube video I used to assist in the trigger kit install: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=tU4-GFrOUqo

I knew you would be the first to give me the answer I needed.

Thank you, didn't know the trigger is that easy to work on.

CDRT:

I was hoping you could explain:

"Once you are sighted in for 25 yards, there are no click adjustments for the 50 yard slow fire, even with std velocity ammo."

So I assume you do a 6:00 hold at 25yds and center hold at 50yds?
Or something like that?

How do you set up your sights?
Thanks!

I do a six o'clock hold for both; no sight change for the .22. If you are in the X-ring at 25 yards, you will be in the X-ring at 50 yards. If you check the ballistic charts for the .22, you'll see the same point of impact at 25 and 50.

I tried the center hold for both when I was shooting International matches, but found the six o'clock worked better for me.

Well, if you were shooting a .45 ACP or .38 Special, they do drop at 50 yards, but not the .22....first thing I learned shooting Bullseye.

The rear sight that came on my MKIII was a piece of junk. The gun wouldn't hold a zero because of Ruger's craptacular tolerances. No matter how tight the set screw, the sight would walk. I was left with three options. Glue, peening, or replacement.

I chose to install the quality Bomar type sight Volquartsen puts out.
Most all the guts of mine are Volquartsen as well.

The only thing I can add is that shots fired at 50 yards tend to miss the target while the same shots at 25 tend to hit in the black.
