Re: 1950 RST-4 (1st collectable?)

Theo does the T514 have a 2 piece bolt? I had a couple of 1953 vintage Ruger .22 pistols promised to me by a family friend upon his passing. Did not get either of them but still remember those pistols like it was yesterday. You have a great pistol there with that in your collection. Thanks for show...

1953 MkI T514 (2nd collectable?)

Thanks Steve, Bill & WT! The 76' and 53' shoot great. I'm fully confident the 50' would also, but again, that is my 1st Ruger Pistol "collectable" and My Safe Queen! ;) Believe I now have a "2nd collectable". For too long, I've tried (through several unsuccessful on-line bids) to obtain the rare MkI...

I think I may have stumbled across an unfired type IX?...
Overall, looks in great condition...just need some period grips :!:

JD's right, probably a Type VIII!

Re: Ruger Mk History-Still Going Backwards!

Been searching this past 12 months for a birth-year Ruger Standard. I've come across a few, but very poor conditions and excessive asking $$$ drove me away. This "in great overall condition" 1953 4.75" was being offered without the rear dovetail sight, thus believe it kept bidders away. Picked up a ...

Re: Ruger Mk History-Going Backwards!

Congrats on the "perfect woods-walking pistol" Ruger was ahead of its game when they produced this gun. Not truly "rare", but it is lower in production numbers than similar models, but somehow the 5.25 taper is more better to some of us. Hence, buy 'em where you find 'em. And they can be found for ...
