Ruger Standard or Mark 1??



Log in to see fewer ads
Would appreciate some advice as to the value of what I believe is a Ruger Standard with a 6-inch tapered barrel. It has a serial number of 280xxx, making it a 1965 build, and the bluing is something like 95-98%. It has one magazine and includes the original box and manual...both of which are in fair-to-good condition.

The LGS is asking $449 and claiming that it is a Mark 1....but from what I have been reading on this forum, I think it's a Standard.

Thoughts on the price (regardless of which model it is)? Anything I should specifically be looking out for?

-many thanks,

Jeff

If it's a MKI it will be stamped on the receiver.

MK1 is marked as such, plus has adj. sights.

I think he's around $150.00 too high.

I think that would be about right down here in South Florida. Don't know what it would be wherever you are located. Great little gun tho. I have an old standard and it is as accurate as can be. I usually carry it with me in the woods.

Price too high. Fair to good standard should sell for 275.00--300.00. Price is too far out of reason to make counter offers. LGS probably does not have 200.00 in the gun.

Yea, the LGS wasn't very interested in talking price. I'm going to keep looking.

All: much appreciated guys, this kind of feedback is very useful.

There's about a zillion of that model left around in various conditions that make for a more economical purchase.

For example, I recently found an actual NIB Mk II T512 for considerably less than your LGS.

I've stumbled across the best deals by keeping cash in pocket and eyes open so as to recognize what does make 'good deal'.

I've stumbled across even better deals 5 minutes after blowing my cash on those very same 'good deals' just a bit too soon.

They were asking $319 for a very nice one at a LGS near me. Didn't check to see what came with it. 17 series so a very late one.

my area (PNW) the last few years I've rarely seen any used Mk I/II/ in the >$250 range. Just a very few years ago Mk I all day long in the $100-150 range. One of my favorite scores at a gun show about 20 years past, was a 10" bull Mk II in very clean condition...settled for $85 cash.

I've seen them at gun shows starting about $325, and not in that great of shape.
