    Any Ruger Mark .22 experts here?

    Anyone here know a lot about Ruger Mark I or Standard? I have a couple of questions.

    A CCW is like a parachute; if you need one, and don't have one, you'll probably never need one again.

    I have a Mark I that I have put a few rounds through. What are you looking for?

    I already have one. Its a Ruger Standard. Serial number indicates it was made in or around '65. I'm really wondering what its worth being its in such good condition and has very little wear in the barrel.

    Ah, yeah, sorry. Can't help you there. Any time I am looking for values, I stop by the library and take a look at the blue book. That would be my suggestion.

    Thank you, though.

    I'll take a stab at it....

    Since you say it's in "such good condition"

    Condition 90% = $145 (sounds like about where your gun might fit)
    Condition 95% = $175 (possible, but not likely)
    Condition 98% = $240 (unlikely to be 98% if it's been shot)

    These are from the 2008 Blue Book, but I'd doubt prices have changed much. And, remember, these prices are generally the starting point for dealers to buy guns for resale. I generally figure street retail at least $75-100 above the book prices, and have found that to be about the norm for the shops I browse in.

    Hope that helps.

    It really depends on what somebody is willing to pay. Blue Book numbers are low in my opinion as there is a market out there specifically for older Rugers and the Mark series has one of the larger fan clubs. The trouble is tapping into that market when it comes time to sell.

    That is a for sure truth!

    Somebody, somewhere is likely to pay your asking price for about anything. I've been looking for that "somebody" for years.

    Log onto GunBroker.com, a firearms auction site. Do a search on semiautomatic pistols, then use Mark I (or Standard) as a search term. You can almost always find a couple. Don't go by what the 'reserve' or starting price is, but rather what the winning bid is. That will give you an idea of current market value.

    Is the gun stainless or blued? This will also make a difference in the value. If it's stainless and in excellent condition, you could very well get over $200 for it.

    For $200 I would keep it.
