After taking apart my MKII for several years I said F*$K it and sold it and bought a Beretta Neos. Now I kicking myself for not buying this gun first, what a world of difference. More accurate, more reliable, easier to take down and interchangeable barrels.

It's amazing to see that cell phones these days take better pictures than my high priced SLR did.

It's hard to find folks that have a lot of negative things to say about it (other than "it's ugly").

Sold.
I have an M3 super90.

Best of both worlds.

I think in order to mount one on most shotguns a guy would need to have a gunsmith drill and tap the receiver, put on a Picatinny rail, and then the Eotech would go right on. Are Picatinny rails/Weaver-style mounts not generally available in Europe?

I tend to agree, my tactical shotguns, an 870 and a Benelli M2, don't have such sights, both have ghost rings. But I'd like to try one with an Eotech sometime, think it'd be a very cool, er, tacticool, setup!

Mine worked great on my 870

I took my MKIII 22/45 apart last night and it was a sonuvabitch! The first time was confusing but I think that after doing it a few times back to back I don't think it is that big of a deal. How often do they need to come apart anyway?

Probably no more often than the average semi-auto pistol, but I found grime in places you wouldn't see unless you were to do a complete disassembly of the receiver. I've pulled apart other auto pistols, and noticed that the dirt deposits seem to be fairly localized by comparison.

Every time you shoot it. As mentioned many times in this thread .22 ammo is dirty.

I too found the reassembly pretty simple if I did it back to back. For some reason though if I don't shoot the Ruger for a few months I forget how and need the manual. I don't forget how to disassemble or reassemble any of my other firearms. Just the 22/45.

Oh Jeebus, I'm calling BS on cleaning every time I go shooting. I've found some 22 ammo that shoots fairly clean and the gun runs fine from day to day whether or not I do a full disassembly of it. I put a over a thousand rounds through it before I ever took it apart and it worked great.
