I finally brought this home today. Missing the magazine, but otherwise intact. I hope to shoot this one Sunday.

Thumbs up

I got one from 1977 that I bought new and it's still going strong. Good luck with yours.

Both Ruger and Brownell's have Mark I magazines that should work great with your pistol.

And.........to my way of thinking, they work better in my 1971 era pistol.

I have not shot this gun yet. Storms in north Georgia dropped trees on the road to the range in the hills, but I will get around to it.

I have a standard made in '79 I bought in 1980. I wasn't happy with the fixed sights and swapped out both front and rear sights a year ago or so to get an adjustable rear sight. I shoot much better with it now. I need to shoot it more often. Great little field gun. VH

I finally found a magazine for my Ruger. And got to shoot it yesterday afternoon. It worked flawlessly. I found a cardboard disc out of a discarded pizza box and set it up at the 100 yard berm. Shooting from a bench, I nailed it steadily once I got my range figured out.

I want to detail strip the Ruger, anybody have a schematic, especially of the bolt?

The Colt Woodsman 2nd series shot well but had feeding issues.

If you go to the web-site, www.Ruger.com you can download a schematic of your pistol as a PDF file.

I am using a I-Pad in the north GA mountains, loosing my signal every time a cloud rolls by. I have been trying to download from the Ruger site for over an hour. I can carry this machine into town and park at McDonalds and use Wi-Fi.

Colby...

You sound like me! My iPad is my only link to the net. I do have the 3G in it. Being in Douglasville I have no problems getting on. Now size wise if it is over 20 ?bytes, it tells me to hook up to a WiFi. Glad you finally had a chance to shoot your Mk1.

Nice one Colby! Had one just like it about 25 years ago. Try the MKII magazines. They're plentiful, hold one round more (10), plus they work perfectly with an Ultimate Cliploader!
