    Ruger Mark I Magazine

    Can't seem to locate any mags for my vintage Ruger Mark I. I've heard that the Mark II mags work in the Mark I. Does anyone know if this is correct. Thanks in advance for any and all assistance.

    I'm 99% sure that the MkII mags won't feed the Mk I.

    Go to the Ruger website to get factory mags (still available), or Midway. Mags aren't free, but they're not outrageous, either.

    I had a 22/45 back in the 90's. It's long gone, but I just couldn't bring myself to toss the spare mags, so I still have two.
    Can you post a pic, so I can see if they might be compatible?

    Edit: Based on the link in GMUM's reply, my old mags wouldn't work for you. Oh well! That gives me an excuse to buy another gun.

    Make sure you also buy one of those thumb loaders........becuase those mags will eat your thumbs up, big time!

    You can use the Mk2 mags in your Mk1. All you have to do is remove the screw on the bottom of the mag. All the innards will come out. Put the button on the other side and put it back together. Really simple! Do a google search and you'll find websites with insructions and pictures.

    Thanks to everyone for your assistance.
    The Mark II do work when you disasseble and switch slide to opposite side. I did get the thumb loader. What a cool little device. Best $4 I ever spent.
    Safe week to all!
