Includes .22 Standard, Mark I, Mark II, Mark III and all Centerfire Semi-Auto Pistols.
My longtime friend is wanting to sell me a Mark I Ruger pistol with a mfg. date of Dec, 1954. I need to know the used value. The pistol is in good working order, but has signifigant barrel bluing worn off due to being holstered for so many years. Any help would be greatly appreciated. I'm sure this question has come up before, but I just found this sight and am a new member. Thank you.
The value of your pistol would depend a lot on the barrel length. The Marl I with the 5 1/4 in. bbl. (T514) being the more valuable. Is your gun marked MARK I? If not, you have a Standard model which will fetch a little less. The price could range from $175 to as much as $450 depending on condition, original box & papers, ect.
The bull barrel (T512) is a 5 1/2 inch, non-tapered barreled, Mark I introduced in 1963 and produced until the MkI and Standard models were discontinued in 1983. The T514 has a tapered 5 1/4 inch barrel and is rarer than the T512. The T514 was first introduced in 1952 and produced in limited numbers until and thru most of 1957.
Right, that is the button on the side. Take a punch, letter opener or whatever, push the follower down until the button is inline with the round opening (side of magazine), pull the button out (still holding the follower down), place button on opposite side. Remove object holding the follower down. Should be ready for 1954 pistol. If that is too hard to follow, I can attach a factory diagram.
Thanks that worked , but i had to open bottom of clip and remove spring before i could get the follower down far enough to remove button , but it works great . Can u tell me where i can get a manual on this pistol ? I want to take it apart and clean it . thanks
