Just brought home another one. I have one in Nevada and a Mark I here at home but I had to have another. The one in Nevada hits pie plates at 110 yards fairly consistently. Would you believe I only paid 150 bucks and it's in great shape with four magazines and a box.

I've got one - you're right. They are incredibly accurate.

Well Mr.Fox show us a picture of your new piece so we can enjoy it with you.
Would love to show you a picture of it and others but I don't have the facility right now. Hopefully in the future.

nice, how long is the barrel?

i have been thinking about getting one for some time now.
I believe the bull barrel is a 5 incher. The one I have in Vegas as well as the Mark I that I have here is accurate and great fun to shoot. I recommend it for durability and low cost particularly if used. I do use a S&W Mod 41 with a red dot for very precise shooting.

I have a old standard Mark I from about 1977, and it's still a good shooter. Taught all the kids on it, and now grandkids. One of the best investments I ever made in a gun.

By the way, my Mark I was made in '76 and has the "made in the 200th of American Liberty".

This Mark11 Target shipped in 1988 has at least two and maybe more owners before it came to me. It got a bit balky about a year ago but after a new recoil spring unit and extractor it shoots as well as ever. Better than I'm capable of.

I think Wolff has springs for them, and Ruger still sells magazines for them. I cant even guess how many thousands of rounds has gone through mine. You just can't beat them. People complain how hard they are to field strip are just lazy, and don't want to clean there gun. After you do it a couple of times, it's a peice of cake.

I collect Ruger Standard and Mark Pistols. One of the finest pistols ever made in my opinion.

Just tried out the Mark II I brought home. The first five shots were all over the place. The next five were only alright. Then it consistently hit in the black everytime from 75 feet. Apparently the barrel was well oiled when I got it and had to have fouling shots fired before it really performed. I'm extremely pleased with it now!
