5-1/2" bull barrel, target sights, no extra safety doo-dads, minute of mouse nads accuracy, for under two bills? What's not to like?

You got an excellent deal! Finish looks good, aftermarket grips, and it shoots well too. I'd be be very happy with that one.

Good deal - YOU BET!. Like said before, old style with no stupid lock and a target sighted Mark, I'd buy it for that. Looks like it shoots good too!

Thanks everyone for the "A-okay's" on my MKII deal. I bought it with the sole purpose of putting a red dot scope on it but now I'm not so sure I still want to do that. I'm very pleased with its performance as it is. It's definitely a keeper.

Thanks all.

Very good deal I think. I really love it when you can get a deal on a gun like that and you find out that it hasn't been shot much so you almost get one that's NIB. That happened with me and a Taurus .357 I now own. :D You just have to be in the right place at the right time.

Well I've been keeping an eye on this piece for couple of months and expected it to be long gone when I stopped there on monday. But since it was still in the case I figured I didn't have anything to loose by making an offer. He had $238 on it and said he would take 2 bills for it. I said $180 and he took it. I bought several musical instruments from him before, maybe that helped. I thought if anything I could use it as a trade-in on a .45.....that was until I took to the range!

My lucky day indeed I guess.

He also had a stainless AMT Lighting with a scope for $399. I haven't seen one of those in a while. But for some reason it didn't last long. Imagine that!

I'll give you $181 for it right now. [:p]

Seriously, any MKII not all banged up for less than $200 is a great find. I've had them in both stainless and blue, and will need to get another one of these days.

I had a MkII identical to that, when I sold it about 14 years ago I sold it for more than that, I would say you got a great deal.

Now-a-days I have a stainless MkIII Target model with the 5 1/2" Bull Barrel, tough for me to see much difference between the MkII I had & the new MkIII other than the obvious Blued vs Stainless finish.

Hey tweek. Just how small is that accuracy you mentioned in your post;)

The pics are gone(for me at least). But, as long as there is no damage to the barrel or the action, a Ruger is always good to go.
I bought a Single Six at a police auction a couple years ago. It looked like it had been at the bottom of a lake. But it locked up tight, so I took a chance on it. It still shot like a new gun. That was one of the guns that made me a big Ruger fan.

BTW, I know this is an old post, but it brought back memories of that old gun, so I posted.

Wish I found it first , Congratulations. With the price of ammo now you can't beat a MKII. I had mine for almost 25 years now , still shoots great and still my favorite.

Good deal! I had one like that years ago, and foolishly sold it. I've been looking for one lately. I've purchased two others while looking for that one;), but I'm still looking!:D
