    I checked out that new Ruger MkIII, and it has Weaver-type scope base that seems to be secured to the same predrilled points that my MkII came with from factory... I think I can just take this new scope base and mount it straight to my MkII... Does anybody know where I can get this very scope base?

    I don't know where to get that exact base, they may have it made to their own specs--but brownell's sells a few similar items:
    http://www.brownells.com
    Go to "browse by category", and then -->"scope rings/bases"-->"scope bases"-->"weaver-style". There are ten pages listed, and the bases for Mk pistols begin on page 6. I see four of that general type. Some specifically say that they fit the predrilled holes, but all of them probably do.
    -------
    Also, you might just go into your local gun shop and ask, Mk II's are one of the more popular 22LR pistols after all. They might have such a mount on hand, and you could take the gun along and "line the holes up" before purchasing.
    ......
    Also note: some of these types of bases (for Mk / Ruger pistols) really need to have epoxy underneath them; particularly the very small, low-height types. The centers of these are rather thin and they are not stiff enough laterally to remain secure without epoxying.

    Thanks, I checked brownells, they do have some similar looking rails and I even liked one, except it is not available in a black finish, only silver. The one on the picture I posted is the one I really want to get... Probably I will have to write to factory and see if they can send me one...

    Try www.jackweigand.com

    I have several of his mounts on my guns, and they are a good value. I'm almost certain he has the mount you are looking for.

    Good Luck...
