I'm not a fan of that frame but for $200 I would be very tempted to become one. I think you got a great deal. As to why any one would buy a gun or magazines and not use them I have no idea but I've lived long enough to learn there is no accounting for the things people do and in this case it was to your advantage.

The gun cost about $215 back in 2003 before tax. I only know because I chose a Buckmark Camper over it for the same price. The target model MKII was running around $250 locally for me, and the 6" taper barrel standard was $174.99 at the time. For $200 today, I think you did alright.

I put a Packmayr grip sleeve on mine many years ago, I don't even know if it's available anymore. I had to do a little custom trimming but it now fits my gun and hand well. Makes me think about trying to find another in case the material dies of old age.
Will add a photo when I can get it transferred to my computer.

I believe my grip sleeve is a Packmayr #3

I believe it is replaced by a newer model, see link below;

I used the Hogue . Its a very tight fit and takes a lot of coaxing to get it on . Heating it up to make more pliable will help .

Soaking it in hot water is an easy, safe way to heat them up.

My Packmyr is a tight fit as well, which I prefer. Nothing more useless than a grip that moves around.

Good find! I found a 223-XXXX SN in 2009 also at a pawn shop. Paid $212 back then. Still a great shooter and lots of fun. I did add a Mark III 22/45 lite but I think I still like the original better.

I put on a grip for the Security 9 from Ruger on my Mark III 22/45 and it fit well. I have been using it for 4 months now and love it. Will attempt a pic at a later date.

The old fixed grip early 22/45s can be had for a great price if can find them. I have a couple and kind of like them.
Ruger never expected the 22/45 to be as successful as it has become, hence the first release-the fixed grip model had no "Mark" designation. They are just simply known as early model 22/45s.

There was a time when I poo pooed these things...until I got one. I now have one in stainless and one blued..both target/bull barrel models. With the addition of VQ sears, bushings, and trigger shoes they've become my favorite shooters.

Update-still fits and on both and able to spend more range time because of grips.
On my Mark II, Mark III 22/45 I used the-> Hogues Handall Beefertail Grip Sleeve for the Security 9/fits good.
*Just my opinion. If it does not work for you/sorry! Fits my hand and saves me some pain from damaged nerves in neck.

I don't know if it's some left over factory grease that I missed and moved forward with the bolt action when I fired the gun or if it's fouling from the SV lead. Whatever it is, I can't get it off with Hoppes #9 and a Q-tip. Anyone have a tip for cleaning off a breech face?
Whenever I run into a mystery fouling I do a few things. First I try what you did. I apply some Hoppe's #9 and let it soak for a bit. Then I do a "test scrape) with a flat dental pick to see if it breaks loose. If it doesn't I then put it in the ultrasonic cleaner for about five minutes. Then try the dental pick again. Be careful not to scrape too hard or you will scratch the metal. That's why I use a flat face dental pick. If that doesn't work I then try a lead remover cloth. Between those three I can usually get the fouling removed.

Don't know if you mean my picture or the one above it, but mine is of a MKIII 22/45 frame with a 4.5" Pac-Lite in matte brown.
