    Well I made it to the gun show today and ended up trading/horse trading
    for a Ruger .22 semi auto pistol. The pistol is in excellant shape with 99% bluing on it. Owner didn't have the box which would have been nice however now I have a semi auto .22 cal pistol to shoot. It is a 50th anniversary that I have got about $80.00 invested. I tried to find a good used Mark II however none were available unless you wanted a scope and silencer attached which I don't care for. All I wanted was a good plinker. I don't know the value but that really doesn't matter that much to me. I just like the idea of having a Ruger plinker that I haven't had in years.

    Is it a MK I or MK III or 22/45. Git yer camera out buddy. Download the take down instructions from the Ruger site if you aren't sure how it is done already.
    I have seen used MK I and MK II for sale around $200 to $250 range, $80 you got a good gun at a good price.

    Ok Savage,

    Here you go. Pics of my 50th Anniversary .22 Ruger. You gotta remember I ain't no teckie like some of you guys are. I can't even text on my flip phone. I am going to do my best to put these 2 pic on but Jim might have to edit them for me.
    You are dealing with the mentally impaired here:confused:
    Tommy

    I told you I would have problems! I will ask Jim to rotate these for me.

    Looks good Tommy. The Ruger bluing seems to hold up very well even over many years. Let us know on the range thread how it shoots for you. 50th anniversary means it is an MK II. Yours has Ruger emblem on both sides of grip panels and is red where as mine the emblem is only on one side and is silver.

    I read on another forum that instead of doing a field strip{pita} just remove the grip panels and spray the insides down that way. Guy said he has been cleaning his MK I that way for 40 years. Myself I don't think a total field strip is necessary because not much powder or dirt gets down in there anyway.

    Here is a new old stock 50th.http://www.gunsinternational.com/gu...ot-edition-new-old-stock.cfm?gun_id=100566139
