Thank you for the mag information. VERY helpful. I'll pick up some of those Mark II magazines.

>>The real giveaway is the lack of a slot for the follower button on the left side of the body.<<

Absolutely, and I have a complete lower assembly ready to be made into a whole firearm. All I need are the rest of the components.

Okay, I see what you mean. Magazines with the slot only on the right side are virtually non-existent. Even the 50.00 EARLY Mark 1 listings have both sides slotted.
I probably should keep the Dremel away from this one.

The info I have says that the T514 serial number you have would have come with a tapered ear bolt. I do recall having read there were issues with the tapered ear bolts coming apart. It may be a replacement?

The left side slot didn't appear until 1971ish when the move of the mag button with the A100 grip frame required it. The right side slot was still made so that the new mags could work with either.

Almost always the best plan, I've learned.

Some of the stainless Mark IIs came with two-piece bolts and there have been problems with those separating. Before this thread I'd never seen a blued two-piece bolt,and never in an RST/Mark I.

That's cool sir. I doubt I'll every find a correct part# box, but I know which one to look for (color & style) to get close.
Thank you ClipperKing!

A box for my Mark 1 has shown up on ebay. However I'm not paying more for the box than I did for the gun. https://tinyurl.com/yyele92s
It would be nice to have the box but I don't think it would double the value of the pistol. $495.00 for a box. Nuts.

They called them spin-riveted, the ears to the bolt shaft. I can't tell if the bolt is correct from your pics. However the serial number is within that first block of 5&1/4 Mark 1's built in 1953. It's a nice piece.

One of the 3 prototype's is in the NRA collection the other 2 are in private collections. Hope that sheds a little light.
I have 28857. It has the same bolt as the OP. Bought it used a few years ago.

I had to take a look at that ....someone really paid $495 for an empty Ruger pistol box ! Kind of makes you wonder ...They obviously really wanted it and had the extra $$

I can't believe it sold for that. Mind-boggling. AND they paid 14.95 shipping on top of the 495.00!

A rare pistol with an impossible to find box would be valuable to the right collector.Look whatís happened with Colts and Smith&Wessons over the last decade.

Box or no your MK I is very nice & particularly since it's a very uncommon model with the 5 1/4 " barrel . The only ones I have ever seen have the 6 7/8" barrels.
