I don't get it... What does this do that the "standard" Standard doesn't already do?

Functionally? Nothing, as far as I can tell. But you do get the wooden box, special serial number & barrel marking, a pin and a decal. I made a mistake and bought a used Mark II 50th Anniversary model, before I realized those weren't anything special at all. Fooled once.

OK... I didn't mean to pee on the parade, but I've been looking at "collectors" 10/22s, and those are actually quite different than regular 10/22s.

It doesn't do anything a regular standard doesn't do but haven't you ever just wanted something just because you wanted it? And since I was going to buy one I might as well buy what I want.

The anniversary only comes in 4.75" so better get the 6" barrel also.

Of course... Again, I didn't mean to pee on your parade.

If the 70th anniversary gun is more appealing to you than a regular "Standard," then by all means, go for it.

Me? I'm holding out for a 6" Standard...

If Ruger had wanted to do something that was actually "special," then they could've done an 8" Standard... I would jump at that.

A lot of 100% condition commemorative special edition firearms end up being worth less than a 100% standard model.

When it comes to the MK series of pistols, I think the one that is special is the last MK-Is that were built in stainless steel. Those were the first MK series in stainless and they were something special at the time. I think they call them the Signature Series.

This is my sense, too...

Part of the appeal of the "collectors" 10/22 is that they're so inexpensive.

Also, I just picked up a "distributor's exclusive" special edition Benelli for hundreds less than a "regular" Benelli would have cost.

They have made so many different versions of 10/22s and MK pistols that it would be almost impossible to have a complete collection.
