Trigger Pull: The trigger pull on the ASG Ruger MK II CO2 6mm Airsoft Pistol is double action only and kind of on the long side but it is pretty smooth and has a nice satisfying metallic click to it when released, I found it pretty easy to shoot but it does take some practice time to get the feel for it. The unfortunate part is that the real steel version is a single action only trigger and one that is super short and light so the contract between the airsoft and 22LR version may make this un not practical is an optional training tool.
Accuracy: I shot the ASG Ruger MK 2 CO2 6mm Airsoft Pistol from a 30 foot range since I hadn't had a chance to shoot it yet. While shooting from a semi-rested position at 30 feet back, I was able to get a 5 inch, 10 shot group but did notice that the bulk of the shots seemed to hit within a 2 inch group with two outliers that shot a bit low and to the right. The other 8 shots all hit really close to dead center on the target. All the ASG Ruger MK pistols have adjustable hop-ups and a rear sight that is adjustable for windage so you should be able to dial this gun in for your shooting style.
I tested out the ASG Ruger MK II CO2 6mm Airsoft Pistol and put five rounds through my Chronograph to find out what the average FPS is using .20 gram BBs and a brand new 12 gram CO2 cartridge. ASG claims 417 FPS, and I was expecting to get pretty close to that. I averaged a little bit lower at right around 399 but it was only about 7 degrees Celsius (45 degrees Fahrenheit). Kind of a cold one!
Build Quality: ASG normally distributes quality guns, and this one is no exception. The fit and finish is very good and there is use of metal where it needs to be like with the internal mechanical parts, the trigger, the safety, the rear fully adjustable sight and the full size drop out metal magazine that holds the gas and the airsoft BBs.
Realism: The ASG MK II is based on a combination of the Ruger MK I-III. It looks mostly like the Mark III since the barrel is fairly stout but it does not have the typical taper near the charging handle area. Still it resembles a Ruger 22LR pistol very much. There is no blowback or charging handle operation so that means that only a double action trigger is possible. This is a bit unfortunate since the real Ruger Mark III has an absolutely smooth and light single action trigger.
Comments: If you are a Ruger MK series 22LR shooter than you may just want to get your hands on one of these and have the freedom of being able to shoot it just about anywhere for even cheaper than using 22LR ammo! I really wish it had a single action trigger, but for a double action trigger it feels pretty good and I love the sounds of the internal hammer dropping. The fully adjustable sights mean that if this gun performs well in terms of accuracy then being able to dial it in to the bulls-eye will make it that much more enjoyable to shoot. Overall I like this pistol, the ergonomics are exactly like the real Ruger Mark III and even though much of the external build is plastic, it still has a good weight to it due to the all metal magazine and other internal metal parts.
