Thinking of getting one of the new Mk3s. Wondering whether to get a regular or 22/45 version.
Is one version easier to clean than the other? Whats your general opinion of either?

I would rather have the MK III. I think the 22/45 was designed for competion shooters who are required to shoot BOTH .22 and .45 to obtain a similar feel. Thus all of the .22 conversion kits for the more popular 1911 clones. I think the MK feels better. The III has some cool features over the II's. I especially like the mag release.

Does it still use the same mags as the Mark II? Maybe a stupid question.

I realized after I asked that that was a stupid question....

I did some more checking and the mags at the same price as the Mk1....at least they didn't inflate the price for the specific mags.

I hate a mag disconnect...this can probably be modified my the customer...maybe not supposed to, but never stopped me before:)

I Kinda like a loaded chamber indicater...got used to that on my XD.

The mag release is the main reason that I may buy one.

Whats your opinion on blued vs. stainless and what length and type of barrel.

I would have to go with the SS 5 1/2" bull......I have an older MK I that is blued with bull barrel and it shoots awesome......but the new features (even the MK II has more features) would be a step up.

There's a possible safety issue with the MK III's loaded chamber indicator, which was pointed out to me in my thread in the Handgun Discussion forum.

I thought more about this....if all else fails, I would just render it useless (and harmless) but removing the end that is causing problems. No, you shouldn't have to do this...but if it's the only way.
