I know a guy who just got a 1951 MK1 I have not seen it yet but he says it looks about 95% and the box is about 85% to 90%. The manual looks as thou it had never been opened. One grip panel has a spot of wear on it from laying in the box he thinks. I know nothing about these guns as I'm a revolver guy and I have no pictures to show but what should something like this go for? He said he paid $250.00 for the package. I wasnt sure but I told him sometimes you see an old box in good shape go for almost half that. It is a 4 5/8" barrel if that makes a difference.

A 1951 pistol would be a 4" barrel if fixed sights (model # RST4).

If fixed sights, it wouldn't be marked Mark I.

Just going by Rugers website. The serial number starts with a 1 and was more than 4 digits. Rugers website does not list anything else than MK 1's for that style gun that I can tell. As for the barrel he said about 4" so I just figured 4 5/8". Only thing I know about these 22 cal. semiautos is what is on rugers site.

I have a 1966 A54 frame MKI with fixed sights that I purchased in excellent condition with a holster and 2 mags (one original) for $200 out the door total. No box and no manual and not as old but still same model (I believe). It's a starting point.

rep, no Sir, as said above that sized barrel is the RST-4 gun,BUT for a 1951 gun, in the box, that is a great price and if its a red eagle grip medallion, and in the one piece, hinged box, that is a GREAT deal.that package is well worth 3 times what he paid for it................
