Ruger Mark I Fan

Post by BarkeyVA »

I bought my first Mark 1, T678 , Serial No. D200001 used as a shooter in 1970 while living in Illinois. Three years ago, after reading an article on the history of the Mark I , I was curious about when my Mark I was made. During my research about my Mark I (made in 1962), I learned from Chad Hiddleson, editor of the RENE, that this D-serial number is the lowest known to exist for this gun.

Since then, I now live in Southeastern Virginia, and I own eight Ruger .22 pistols, including a customized S-serial number Mark I, T-512W made in 1971, a Mark I, T678 with tapered ears made in 1953, and a 22/45 Model 0197 "Great Eight" made in 2002.

Welcome Barkey. I have several MK series pistols mixed in with the others and enjoy shooting them with my grandkids. Hope you will hang around and be a participating member. Great bunch of very knowledgeable folks on here.

Welcome Barkey, Our ROCS historian wrote the book on the Ruger Pistoles and I am sure you will be able to get a bunch more information on your pistoles here on our forum.
