i HAVE ONE OF THOSE ALSO BUT I DON'T SHOOT IT MUCH. I HAVE FIGURED HOW TO PUT IT BACK TOGETHER AFTER CLEANING. I DON'T LIKE THAT IT DOESN'T HAVE THE LAST ROUND HOLD OPEN FEATURE, DON'T LIKE THE BOLT HOLD OPEN/SAFETY BUTTON, DON'T LIKE THE MAGAZINE RELEASE BUT IT DOES SHOOT STRAIGHT. MINE IS NOT MARKED MARK SO IT IS A PRE-MARK. IT IS THE STANDARD MODEL AND CAME WITH FIXED SIGHTS. SOME YEARS AGO I REPLACED THE REAR SIGHT WITH AN ADJUSTABLE SIGHT. IT WORKS WELL.

Well, you're certainly smarter than me. I had a problem putting it back together so I ran like a cur dog here for help. Ha! Sure, it's a pain. But it was the Mark 1..The first design. So they made a ton of improvements since. I read where the thing was $39.95 when it was new. Mine is from 1959, so says the serial. I just wish the modern ammo was as trustworthy as that 60 year old pistola! You're my first reply on here and I surely thankee!!

YOUTUBE VIDEOS DID THE TRICK. I ALSO HAVE AN SR22 WITH A 4.5 INCH BARREL THAT IS A REAL HOOT TO SHOOT. I ALSO HAVE A 6.5 INCH SINGLE SIX WITH A BISLEY GRIP AND FIBER OPTIC SIGHTS. TAKING THAT ONE TO THE RANGE LATER TODAY. I ALSO HAVE A 10/22 TD THAT I SOMEWHAT CUSTOMIZED. GOTTA LOVE THOSE RUGERS AND A BIG WELCOME FROM THE PEOPLE'S REPUBLIC OF NEW JERSEY (HOME OF PHIL MURPHY - TYRANT KING.)
