What does RST stand for???

Can anyone tell me what "RST" stands for in reference to the Ruger MK series pistols? I have looked everywhere and have found absolutely nothing that will tell me what it stands for.

Thanks, BK

An example would be an RST-4 which is the Standard model with fixed sights and the tapered 4.75" barrel.

The Mark I designation would be the Target model with rear adjustable sights. The first Mark I Target 6-7/8 inch model being shipped from the factory in 1951. $57.50.

"Encyclopedia of Ruger - Semi-Automatic Rimfire Pistols, 1949-1992
Chad Hiddleson" is an excellent reference work on the Standard, Mark I and Mark II Ruger pistols if you really want to read up on these.
