I bought a stainless early model 22/45. It has a serial number of 218-77XXX.
At first I thought it might be a Franken-gun creation but the upper is clearly marked 22/45.
According to the RUger website it would be a 1994 MKII. None of the 22/45 models have the 218- serial number.
I could post pics if needed.
Does anyone know what is going on with this?
Thanks

your gun is from 1997 when they started to number ALL of the Mark IIs in the same ranges...yes, the other number on a "non 22/45" marked receiver would have been your noted ,earlier date(1994)
