I have been looking at the stainless MK III Hunter with a fluted 7" barrel. My son knew I was wanting a Ruger 22 pistol so he bought a MK II from a guy he works with for $60. It's stainless with a 6" standard barrel. I checked the serial # and it was made in 1988. It's not exactly what I was wanting but it being a gift from my son is nice and I'll keep it. I'm still drooling over the MK III Hunter and will get one before summer is over. What is the going price on the MK III?
