Ruger rimfire pistols are some of the most popular handguns made, with over three million sold. In many ways the Standard model is a groundbreaking design, lacking the slide found on conventional pistols. Instead, it sports a cylindrical bolt which cycles inside a tubular receiver in a manner more characteristic of a rimfire rifle. The bolt of the pistol features protruding "ears" at its rear which are grasped and pulled rearward to feed the initial round and cock the action. Produced from 1982 through 2004, the MK II model of the Standard added a slide stop that held the slide open on the last round. The comfortable, Luger-style Mark II grip allows for the perfect angle of fire. The Target variant has a heavier barrel and adjustable sights. This special NRA Endowment model Mark II pistol comes with two 10-round magazines and the original factory hard case. Its grips, metal, and bore are all in very good condition.
