    My MkI was my first handgun. Gave it to my eldest son 3-1/2 years ago for his 12th birthday. Gave him some one-of-a-kind Mk I bamboo grips for Christmas.

    I very much enjoy my MKII standard. But my faves are the SP101, Bearcat, and the Single Six convertable. The Charger is a fun range toy.

    UPS delivered this to my LGS today. I was there waiting for it. It is a Ruger MK IV Standard with a 6" barrel and color case hardening by Turnbull Restorations. It is really nice. I should have the Altamont wood grips by next Friday.

    I like. Wonder if I could send in my MKII and have it color case hardened. And get a set of these?

    I doubt I'll ever shoot it.

    I also picked up an AMT Lightning on the same day. Probably leave it unfired too.

    I bought a Ruger brand Picatinny rail for my Turnbull MK IV Standard. I did not want to remove the rear sight to install the rail i it's rearward position. I did not like the looks of it overhanging the barrel in the forward position. So, I cut off the portion that overhung the barrel. A little file work and a bit of paint, then onto the pistol.

    Here are photos showing the possibilities I now have -

    Nice bunch of Ruger Mark pistols posted above. I caught the Ruger Mark pistol bug a long time ago. Since 1970 I've been working on these pistols & drilling and tapping receivers long before Ruger started doing that work. Over the years I've kept extensive notes on everything and anything that could possible cause a Mark pistol to hiccup. I've also accumulated a few:

    Here's a couple of my Ruger Mark II pistols that I use for the "bush-league" competition shooting we do around here:

    But, the two most accurate Ruger Mark II pistols I have are these:

    Both are hands down, the most accurate .22 pistols that I own when used in my Ransom Rest:
