Can anyone tell me what model this might be, the bracket blocks all information.
What do you think it's worth?
Back in the early 1980's when the Ruger Mark II first made the scene, many ideas arose as to how optics could be attached without drilling and tapping the receiver. While the mount you have on there, was no doubt, a thought with good intention, its not gonna win many trophies at an "optics beauty pageant". With some base and optics combinations that sit that high, elevation adjustment can be an issue by running out of adjustment.
Those clamp on/around mounts do have a tendency to scratch the surface where they're mounted, stainless rub marks are easy to remove though.
Value? Very dependent on where you're at. Best guesstimate would be what they go for in the same condition as yours on one of the national auction sites.
