    With Three MkIVs and Two MkIIs, just had to have a Mk Standard! After a sweet deal with Dury's Gun Shop (San Antonio LGS), obtained a 1976 Bicentennial "200th Year of American Liberty" 4 3\4" Standard RST4, my first blued Ruger Mk rimfire! Pics looked good in their on line store, but the surprise was the 98% great condition of the finish. Realized that it had never been taken apart and cleaned in 43 years, but functioned just fine! After 2 hours of detailing everything inside and out, IMHO she's a wonderful find with sharp, clean rifling...not bad for a used 43 yr old RF!!

    Dropped in a MkII Target Trigger, a MkIII Hammer and a MkIV VQ Sear. Pull is now 1.5#, overall travel is 3/32" (1/32" PT-Break-2/32" OT) and the solid wall breaks-like-glass...a Really Sweet Action that is very similar to my accurized MkII's and MkIV's...Amazing!

    I added some of my wooden grips, but no cigars to hand out yet...need to get to the range!

    Very nice! Just curious, did you use the original disconnector with that trigger?

    Dennis,

    Yes, I did keep the Standard disconnector in the action...so far, no issues! Should I be concerned?
