Picked this up from the gun shop today, won it on gunbroker. 71' Ruger and I am really happy with it! The finish is pretty nice in my opinion. Anything I need to know?

Very nice Ruger. That's my favorite profile for a Mark, tapered barrel, low profile sights.
Mine is a Mark II, I don't know much about the older models like yours. I think yours would be a Ruger 'Standard', and would take the older 9 round mags.

The Ruger Mark series really are fantastic guns. Mine's a plain Jane MkIII, and it's fantastic. Most accurate pistol i own, and my constant hiking buddy.

Well, mine was $355 plus shipping and I think I did okay. Hopefully get to try it out this weekend...

Nice clean looking standard model. Just saw one (built in 1968 by the serial number), in the box, at the LGS for around $400. I think you did just fine with your purchase.

You just got to love that gun. In 1967 I made my first gun purchase and this was it ... Ruger Standard model. Sticker price was $18. Things have changed.

I still have it and it's box and both are in pristine condition. Odd thing to me is my son wants and prefers my Ruger Mark II Target. I guess I can understand that.

IT IS NOT a "MARK" or a "Mark series ". It is a RUGER STANDARD 6" 22LR AUTOLOADING PISTOL.
PLEASE quit making up names and trying to fake it as you go...
And so it goes...

@Wil_Terry: Take a chill pill man.

@maskedman504: My only advice would be to look up videos on how to field strip the Mark series pistols. They can be very tricky.

Uh Wil even Ruger refers to it as the Mark I on their website.

Ruger called it a Standard Model back in the 70s. Not sure when the Mark 1 moniker came about. My friend's stepdad had one and, after shooting it, I couldn't wait to be old enough to buy one.

Does anyone know why there is a gap between the "gripping tabs" on either side of the bolt and the body?

So that the bolt always comes to rest against the chamber face.
If they spent more time hand fitting each gun I suppose they could get the bolt to stop without a gap, but that would add cost.

I love it when someone gets a great deal. I wish it were me, oh well. Enjoy it that's a classic little shooter proven many times over.

+1 ... But that wouldn't be any fun and so many potential threads would never get started. :evil:

I pocked up a damn nice mk1 (it's an actual mk1) with the target sights and bull barrel and I absolutely love it. Traded a sig mosquito for it. Smartest thing I ever did, it's a phenomenal little gun.
