I picked me up a Mark II stainless target model this weekend !! I have wanted one for a very long time, and decided to just get it, you only go around once, :D

Now I need a holster and I'm thinking about getting the Triple K one that Ruger sales.

Does anyone use this holster and how has it worked out for you?
My only concern is the front sight snagging, thats a sharp little dude,lol

So what do you guys think, pretty good bang for the buck? Or get a better one?

Does it have a screw-on front sight? If so, you can replace it with the holster-friendly ramped front sight of a Single Six.

It is a screw on front sight. I had'nt thought about that, very good to know !

Thats an interesting scope mount you have there Snake. I have been looking at mounts I can use on mine, its not drilled and tapped for a mount.

Have'nt ran across one like yours, whats the story on that one?

It's a scope mount of my own devising.

The scope is an old Bushnell Magnum Phantom I bought cheap at a gunshow. It has a rail on the bottom. This rail turns out to be 3/8", the same as the grooves cut in common .22 rifles.

The Mark II barrel turns out to be exactly 7/8", the same diameter as cheap .22 scopes.

So I bought a set of cheap Weaver 7/8" .22 scope rings, and mounted them upside down, the scope part on the barrel and the groove part gripping the scope dovetail. This worked fine but then I got the idea to get a set of them in the high, see-through model, so I can use the iron sights while the scope is on.

Cobbled this all up in the late '80s. Not sure those rings are made any more. They weren't easy to find then--I had to order them, they're not the kind of thing you find in your local gun shop.

I go through phases with this gun--I'll have the scope on for a few years, and then take it off for a few. It's off at the moment, but it was on a couple years ago when I took the pic (obviously).

Thats a very cool ! I especially like the way you can use the sights witth that. Very ingenious way of doing it !
