    There is some history for this pistol. It was originally purchased by a man at my Grandfather's shop, who paid the deposit and never came back.

    It's a custom job, but aside from that I don't know much about it, but then there's really not to much to know. I had to use my laptop camera, sorry for the quality. It's a Ruger Mark 1 with a muzzle break.

    Oddly it's not. It's shoots great. It also holds position well when firing more than one round, so no need to adjust aim as quickly.

    It is a huge muzzle break. I was speaking with my Dad about it and he said they retrofitted the mark 1 with those as people did not like the tapered barrel.

    Without it the gun does look funny.

    I was sent a pm asking if the barrel attachment was removable, it is.
