    Came across this MkII, 678 online
    "As New In Box"
    Got it for a great price
    Almost as if the seller didn't know its value
    Or he REALLY hated it
    When it arrived, it came with all its Papers, and .... two, new in their Factory Sealed Bags Magazines !

    I've added a few "Improvements"
    A Volquartsen, VC2TT fully adjustable Target Trigger, giving it a nice 2.5# Trigger, with the slightest amount of Take-up and almost zero Overtravel
    A Volquartsen, VC2BRB Extended Bolt Release
    Brownell's, Allen Head Grip Screws
    Holding a Hogue Rap-a-Round Finger Groove Rubber Grip
    A Ruger, White Outlined Rear Sight Blade
    Also added a Ranch Products, Extended Magazine Release
    And an EA Brown, Hammer Strut Support
    A very nice Shooting Pistol

    Sleek looking Ruger. Like the looks of this one too. The barrel length stands out for me. I have not seen first hand any of these Mark II 678's in a long time. Looks like you already made some changes too.
    * A friend has one, it is stock and accurate as heck. Good purchase.
    * Makes you wonder how many of these are just sitting around in their boxes waiting to find a new home?

    WELL ....
    I sold my '99 (moderately used) MkII KMK-512 Target to fund this one and made $50.00, if that's any indication

    That's a very nice pistol at a very good price. If your pistol now has a 2½ pound, as measured, trigger pull, 10 to 1 the Volquartsen "target" sear was also installed when all the other parts were.

    SGW:
    Thank You for the reply
    No, as I did all of the upgrades myself and didn't change the Sear
    I did set the Take-up and Overtravel right at their minimum limits
    I may (over time) find them to be TOO close !

    Good for you! I'm always glad to see that folks learn their Ruger Mark pistols as you have done. That can ONLY be accomplished by DIY takedown and then reassembly themselves.
