1971 Mark I



Log in to see fewer ads
Was wandering the display case at a local gun shop and there was a longer barreled Mark I with a $400 price on it. I did not touch it or ask anything about it. I looked at the serial number and it comes back as a 1971. I assumed it was a bull barrel because it didn't look like my Mark II pencil barrel. But I'm not for sure because I could swear it had a taper. Just by looking at it in the display case, I would say it was in very good condition. Not sure if this is a decent price or not.

I'm waiting for them to get the Ruger PC Carbine in to look at first. If I decide not to get that, then I may get the Mark I.

I have a '71 Mk. 1 with a bull barrel, great pistol, its worth every penny. If you decide to buy you won't be disappointed.

My one and only Ruger is a late 70`s Mark I bull barrel target model. With mini-mags or sv ammo, it never messes up, totally reliable. I took that holster gtabber front sight off and replaced it with a Millett red ramp one, and took the plastic grips off and replaced them with some checkered dark rosewood ones. It has become a really nice woodsmans type pistol and is comfortable to carry in it`s Safariland holster. I had to do a quick draw many years ago when a skunk and I stumbled upon each other. We both fired, the skunk just touched the tip of my shoe, and I put a Stinger through his chest. Thank goodness it points well. Okay is that enough reason to go fetch that nice old Ruger?
