    I'm a huge fan of the Ruger Mark II pistols, and have been working with and on these guns since 1969. Here are a couple of my favorites:



    Both have better sears, better extractors, better steel triggers and have been smoothed internally to function much much better than before.

    Bet they shoot as good as they look, Dennis!!

    My first MKII, a 93' Comp Target Slab Sided 6 7\8, was a stock sweet shooter. My oldest has had it since 96', so just recently found an un-fired 86' MkII 6" Std and all I felt it needed was an adjustable trigger. Now with just 1\16" total travel and a 2.6# "break-like-glass" action, it fits my hunting\plinking side carry needs perfectly and off a rest, actually shoots tight groups at 25 yds!

    Nice pic! I too am a big fan of the Mk IIs.

    I'd guess my fave is my 4" stainless bull barrel.

    Kind of funny, because if I was pressed I'd say my least fave is my 5.5"
    stainless bull barrel.

    The best shooter is a 6 7/8 heavy taper in blue. A stainless would be super sweet.

    Hmm, I've never see a stainless 6 7/8 heavy taper stainless.
    Have to expand my collection if so.

    Beauties.

    What extractors are you using?



    Here’s my Mark II Competition and a Mark IV with integral Suppressor.

    I just joined and will attempt to warm up like you did. I get crickets at times but that's is how it goes. I got some responses at times so I will keep chiming in when I get a chance. Good luck and happy shooting. Be safe! I do love the pics in this thread though!!!!

    Well, for the fella who has never seen a Ruger Mark II 6 7/8 ths Heavy Taper Target in stainless steel, here ya go:



    This pistol had the Weigand no drill/tap optics base on it. It sat too high for my liking so I drilled and tapped the receiver for a base that I make.
