Mark II. Available in Stainless (Mark I is not), better bolt lock than the safety on the Mark I, common magazines vs Mark I's rarer right hand button mags, no stupid added safety features of the Mark III and Mark IV including the loaded chamber indicator and magazine disconnect. Cost half as much or less than the new Mark IV which delivering the same accuracy and reliability. Mark IV has the edge in the one button takedown, but is dismissed because of the mag disconnect and loaded chamber indicator. 4" heavy taper Mark II in Stainless is what I own and prefer.

I have a Mark 1 Target model, 6 7/8 barrel, factory walnut grips with the thumb rest and micro sights. Zillion rounds and still dead-on accurate. OK, it has the 9-round mags, but they are more solid than the new flimsy mags. I have the Mark 2 & 3 Target models, but the original is still the best.

I chose a Mk III because that is the one I have had the most reliable and accurate experience with (not to bash any others). The Charger 1022 is superior to

any of the Mark series I have ever fired. It is my new favorite plinker pistol and has replaced any other rimfire as my first choice to grab for any general purpose use.. They cost a fraction of any Mark series pistol and they take the very same magazines as my favorite rimfire rifle. All around hard to beat, in my book.

I really like them all as they are very accurate, dependable pistols. I will say that the late model MkII with the mag release behind the trigger was a huge improvement over the traditional magazine latch at the bottom of the mag well. I have several of these that I've collected over the years and my favorite, by far, is my MkII that I added a custom integral suppressor I built that works incredibly well.
