    Let see, I may be wrong and sure someone will correct me. Ruger MKII mags can used in model MKI just reassembly the notch on the right side. Ruger MKI does not fit in MKII. Here there are the best info on the earth about Ruger's family autopistols. Great people, full of knowledge and oustanding reading.

    IIRC, there's a much easier way to go about this.

    Mk1 mags held 9 rounds. Mk2 mags hold 10. Check to see how many yours holds and you'll have your answer :).

    Also, I know a Mk1 doesn't have a bolt hold-open (though you can hold it open by flipping on the safety with it back) because that's what I have. I'm pretty sure that they did add that feature with the Mk2, so if you're isn't holding open then you've probably got a Standard/Mk1.

    The lack of bolt hold-open is the ONLY thing I don't like about my Ruger. Shooting is less fun when I'm counting my shots :). It's a non-issue on the newer guns though.

    I believe you have a MK 1/standard by your description also. A friend had one in the early 70's when we were in high school. We ran half a bazillion rounds through it with minimal cleaning. I now own more than half a dozen MK II stainless ones and find them just as reliable and rugged. Yes now thinking about it the easy thing to determine the difference would be the mag capacity. I had forgotten about that.
