Ruger is excited to offer you an opportunity to bid on and acquire rare, unusual, discontinued, or one-of-a-kind Ruger® firearms and accessories. All items are available to qualified buyers as part of a "no reserve" auction, subject to applicable laws.
We have for auction a "U.S." marked Mark II .22 LR caliber pistol with a roll mark date of March 30, 1984. The serial number of this pistol is 210-00311, and is one of the few "U.S." marked Ruger® Mark II pistols ever offered for sale (other than to the U.S. Government). It has never been sold and has not been fired beyond normal factory test firing. In 1983, Ruger was awarded a contract from the U.S. Army, Rock Island Arsenal for a .22 caliber target and training pistol for the U.S. armed forces. A new model was established to meet the U.S. Army's requirements (catalog no. MK678G), and this was the first time Ruger Mark II pistols were equipped with 6 7/8" bull barrels. The MK678G pistols were roll marked "U.S." on the right side of the barrel/receiver assembly, had finer sights, a roller-burnished chamber, and enhanced accuracy. Special targeting methods were developed using a (then) new laser sighting system, which was later granted a U.S. patent. The laser targeting system worked very well during production, and each pistol was packed with a target attesting to its compliance with the U.S. Government accuracy standards for such pistols.
The serial number of this stainless P94™ is 308-02006 and Ruger's records reflect that this pistol was test fired November 12, 1993. The KP94™ pistols were introduced as "New" in the 1994 Ruger Firearms Catalog. This pistol was used as a sales sample by Ruger's Federal Sales Manager, Jim Cowgill at that time. The pistol was never sold and had been returned to the factory and kept in the archives. The P94™ is built from hard-coated A356T6 aluminum alloy, 400-serial stainless steel, and Terhune Anticorro stainless steel with slim, checkered 6123 Xenoy resin grip panels. Other features include a 4.2-inch barrel and high-visibility white-dot inserts on both the front and rear sights. The square notch rear sight is drift-adjustable for windage. Additional features include an oversized trigger guard, full-time ambidextrous magazine latch, and manual ambidextrous safety levers. The P94™ Pistol will be shipped in the lockable, gray plastic handgun case it had been stored in all these years along with one 9mm 15-shot magazine, an appropriate instruction manual, handgun case lock, and firearm locking device.
We have another great auction item this week. This time around it's a Ruger® Alaskan Model M77 Mark II rifle in .375 Ruger. The serial number on this rifle is 792-12217, and Ruger's records reflect that this rifle was roll marked June 5, 2006. The rifle was sold to Cabela's in November 2006 and used as a sales sample. The rifle was subsequently returned to the factory in January 2007. There are no notes in the records stating why it was returned. The Ruger® M77® Hawkeye® Alaskan model was introduced as "NEW for 2007" in the Ruger 2007 Firearms Catalog. This rifle has a 20-inch hammer-forged, ion-bonded Diamondblack™ finished stainless steel barrel that features a rugged V-Notch windage adjustable express iron rear sight and large white bead front sight. Ruger's patented integral scope mounting system is factory machined to accommodate the included Ruger scope rings. Other features include a textured Hogue® Over-Molded™ stock with sling swivel studs attached to the forend and buttstock. The M77® Mark II rifle has a steel hinged floorplate and trigger guard with a staggered box magazine that holds three cartridges.
