Which Ruger MKIII should I buy?

I want an accurate .22 pistol and am thinking about buying a Ruger MKIII. Should I buy the S.S. Hunter with the 7" fluted bull barrel (model 10118) or the S.S. Competition with the 7" Slab side barrel (model 10112)? What are the major differences between the two, price is about the same. Please let me know if there is a different model and/or manufacturer you recommend. I would like to stay under the $500 mark.

I bought the 22/45 for about $220 on sale. It has a bull barrel. I don't know what is upgraded from it to the target models you are referring to. It has the optics rail, so that shouldn't be a problem. Trigger needs upgrade for a competition gun.
I am not upgrading the trigger, but th optics rail came with it, just bolts to the top. It is drilled and tapped. I bought it last year at "Ruger Days" at Gary's Pawn and Gun in Columbus.

How do you like that facility? Pretty nice. Have shot there a couple of times.

Be careful!! I'm not sure there is enough room there for rimfire shooting!! :NO:

I've got a 22/45 and Walther P22 to teach my son on.
