    Hi All, been a fan of Ruger since a kid, my Dad had a Mark 1 or maybe standard way back and he loved that pistol. I acquired a similar piece '65 Standard 6" barrel from original owner, nice gun which has been in a drawer since new needs only cleaning etc. Hope to learn more about this nice find.
    Regards
    Jim

    Welcome. Love to see a picture of your '65 once you've cleaned it up.

    Will work on getting that pic of my Standard.
    Guess I need another post to add the pic?

    Been to the range once with this find, shoots very nice now that years of crud removed and oiled. Note the VQ mag release, like that a lot also picked up extra mags and per youtube now can run later mags without problem.
