Yeah that model has an issue of shooting all the shots through the same hole. It's an ammo waster because it only uses up a small part of the target. Enjoy!

The gun is GTG, so I'll address the elephant in the room, where is said pawnbroker who is far far away? No I'm not trying to beat you to it. Shipping it in any way makes the roster apply.

Had to take a look in my safe to make sure mine was still there. Yup, and I got the feeling it wanted out to have some fun. We call it the nail driver (and no, not from using the butt lol). Enjoy! I know I sure have enjoyed mine.

The II is preferable to the III; it has a heel mag release and no ridiculous LCI

IMHO

Nice find!

Other part of the elephant; I'd sure like to know how much $$$, but I understand if....

When you have completed the transaction, can you tell us where you got it? I think I remember seeing one at a SD area pawn shop but it was in the LEO-only section.

Cool MkII in a not too common configuration. Stainless always makes those Rugers just a touch more unique. Get it!

Looks just like mine! Great pistol. I've probably shot it more than anything else I own.

The balance on that one is great.

Place a single hole on paper for me.

I heard the cleaning of these is a pain (unless I’m confusing models)

Thanks for the kind words.It is quite rare in this configuration.The store where i got it from had a few regular tapered barrel in both blued and stainless but also a II Hunter stainless slab sided barrel for $150 more.I compared and held both but the target model is much nicer looking,lighter and has the aftermarket grips.I picked it up last Friday and shot it yesterday in an Indoor range.Shot very well and would cycle CCI sub sonic and STD but won't hold the bolt open after the last shot.The Minimags 40grain worked the best.I do wish the front sight is replaceable though.

Congrats on the buy, the stainless taper barreled with adjustable sights mkII seem to be much more rare than the blued and even the slab side models. I actually can only recall seeing one pop up in the classifieds a few years back.

Was it located at Royal Pawn?

Not a fan of the LCI either!
Much rather have the solid tube.

You are not confused.

Ruger Standard up to Mark III are usually a pain to put back together.

Mark IV is about as easy as it gets.
