The Ruger® Mark II™ pistols were introduced in 1982. This model was developed as a result of an engineering program to incorporate important mechanical improvements and refinements of the original Ruger® Standard and Mark I Target Model pistols. The last 1,000 of the Mark II pistols produced in 2004 were marked on the top of the receiver "One of One Thousand – 2004." The Mark II pistols were superseded by the Mark III pistols in 2005. The serial number of this pistol is 226-13527 and the rollmark date is June 14, 2004. This .22 caliber long rifle pistol features a satin stainless finish with a 4-3/4 inch tapered barrel. The black grips and magazine sport the silver-colored Ruger medallion with red background.
This week’s auction item is a stainless Ruger® GP100® .357 Magnum caliber, double-action revolver. The serial number is 170-90075, and the rollmark date is March 2, 1988. The GP100® was first introduced in 1986 and "Designed as the ultimate .357 Magnum for police and personal defense use." The model 1709, KGP-131T, revolver was never listed in the Ruger firearms catalogs or price sheets and is likely a distributor exclusive. Some features include: a 3" heavy barrel; adjustable sights; a round butt checkered rubber grip with finger grooves; full-length ejector rod shroud; satin-polished stainless finish; and 6-shot cylinder. The revolver had been stored in a gray plastic box along with some non-original paperwork, and will be shipped in that box along with an appropriate instruction manual.
