You are bidding on a .222 Rem. caliber Mini-14® Ranch rifle with serial number 197-35869. The rollmark date of this rifle is July 8, 2003. This caliber rifle did not appear in the 2003 Ruger Firearms catalog nor was it listed in the 2003 price sheets. It appears this rifle has not been fired beyond normal factory testing. The Ruger® Mini-14® Ranch rifle was first introduced in 1982, and was described in that year’s firearms catalog as a rifle that "incorporates an ideal scope mounting system - integral scope bases in the receiver accept the proven solid steel Ruger mounting rings... for correct, comfortable scope use and convenience in carrying. All the basic Mini-14 design have been retained in the Ranch Rifle." This auto-loading rifle features a blued 18-1/2" barrel, blued steel receiver and trigger guard, a fold-down rear peep sight and blade front sight.
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 The Mark II pistols were superseded by the Mark III pistols in 2005.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.
