We have for auction a Ruger® Standard Model Pistol. The serial number is 17-76578 and the rollmark date is February 8, 1982. Manufacture of the Standard Model pistols began in 1949 and were in production until the Mark II series was introduced in 1982. That makes this one of the last Standard Models produced. This pistol features a tapered 4-3/4" barrel; a fixed, wide-blade Patridge-type front sight; and a windage-adjustable, square notch, dovetail-mounted rear sight. The grip panels are made of butaprene-type hard rubber with sharp diamond checkering and a silver-colored Ruger eagle medallion inlaid in the right grip panel. The trigger is grooved and has a 3/8 inch wide curved finger surface. The Standard Model Pistol will be shipped in its original yellow and black-hinged cardboard box along with a 9-shot magazine, and original instruction manual, purchaser record card, and marketing literature.
Ruger first introduced the stainless decocker-only model P85™ pistol in the 1990 Ruger Firearms Catalog. The P85™ was the first 9mm centerfire pistol produced by Ruger in the Prescott, Arizona manufacturing facility. The serial number is 302-11737 and the testfire date is October 23, 1990. This pistol has never been fired beyond normal testing during manufacture. This pistol features a 4-1/2 inch barrel and high-visibility white-dot inserts on both the front and rear sights. The square notch rear sight is adjustable for windage. It has a stainless steel frame with molded high impact grip panels. Other features include an oversized trigger guard, full-time ambidextrous magazine latch, decocking lever, and lanyard loop. The P85 Pistol will be shipped in a yellow and black-hinged cardboard P85 box along with a 15-shot magazine, appropriate instruction manual, and original 1990 Ruger firearms catalog.
