Hi-Standard Citation 107 and a S&W 17
Heritage Rough Rider (acquired 2018)
Ruger Mk II (acquired 1986)
I like that gun and was wondering what kind of trigger it is??
5 ¼" tapered bull KMK-514 MkII
I've read that this was a limited run.
I've heard anything from 2000-7000.
All box and docs, even have the original, plain, brown cardboard shipping box.
Tandemkross trigger ( I like the straight triggers), did the ‘flip’ on the spring and a little polishing on the sear, it’s now at 1.7 lb, love the way it shoots and love the reliability, the Hunter model is a little muzzle heavy, which is what I like for offhand shooting

You certainly have a good eye and fine taste.
I don't know about you but I'm not ashamed to admit that I'm a little bit jealous
Definitely of the snubby Diamondback!
My grandpa and I thank you. He bought em all but the Wrangler. The MkII bull barrel was my first pistol, which he bought me over 20 years ago. He has been gone 18 years now. The Woodsman MT was possibly the last gun he purchased, and i was there when he got it.
There is nothing better than plinking with a 22 pistol!
Thousand of rounds through it. Back when a brick of .22 Wildcat was $9.00 at Gibsons.
I have others. But, that little gun has a special place for me.

My young lady friend called it “dainty”.

I left the Bisley out since its a 32 H&R
Wow. That's all I got.
Whats so odd about it? Looks like my dad's MkII to me
The blued model MK6 like your father’s and the 4” MK450 were the “base model” of the era, and not uncommon. However, I’m told the stainless 6” model, the KMK6, was more often misassembled either with target sights or the thicker and longer 6 7/8” tapered barrel of the Target (effectively mislabeled as KMK6’s), and fewer units were produced overall than the standard base model, OR the target model. I suppose folks spending extra for stainless over a base model blued pistol would also prefer the adjustable target sights.
I owned it for many years before another Ruger enthusiast pointed it out to me as “odd.” Even requesting the serial number history for this one from Ruger shows it wasn’t even a KMK6 on record, but was rather a blued bull barrel model, which it obviously isn’t. I’ve only seen a handful of other true KMK6’s in the last 20yrs, as most I find have the adjustable target sights, even when they have the right barrel.
