    Mark II for a 10/22? NO WAY!

    I visited an old friend today and as always the conversation turned to the pistols and rifles and shotguns and such. He had some accuracy issues with a Mark II Target 5.5" slab sided Bull barrel. I told him I might want it. We ended up swapping the pistol for a tuned up old 10/22 that I had. He is happy, and I am ecstatic. I have already got the barrel lapped and the trigger job done. Tomorrow I will run some ammo through it to see if I did any good. Chances are that the barrel was just lead fouled.

    I had one of those for awhile when I was a kid. It was the semi bull barrel. It was so accurate I got bored of it and traded it for I don't remember what. I had a mark 1 that was just as accurate. Also a 5.5" semi bull barrel.

    I found a few minutes to shoot a target with it today. At 21 feet the first 4 bullet holes were touching and the other 6 were real close. That one might be a new favorite of mine!

    This is the little sweetheart that was acquired in a trade for a 10/22. It shoots better than it looks, and it looks pretty good if I may say so.

    I thought they were Ruger but can't say for sure. I'll check on that.

    Ruger does make a similar set, but the Ruger ones I've seen are half-checkered on the thumb-rest side.

    Do they have a Ruger emblem on the right-side grip? If not, I agree with Sierra_Hunter, above, that they are probably not factory grips. Still decent looking and functional, though.

    Very nice, and a fine upgrade to a great pistol (assuming you are right-handed, of course).

    Yes there is a Ruger badge on the right side panel. I am sensing a bit of Deja vu here DJ, how about you?

    A lot of Ruger's "up-grade" grips are Altamonts with the Ruger badge inset.

    A Ruger MkI was the first pistol I shot when I was 7. Today I have a MkI I bought back in the 70s, a MkII with the "slab sides", and a MkIII hunter I bought most recently. The grips on the MkI I bought from Ruger back in the 70s. Nice pistols although field stripping them is a challenge the first couple of times.
