Local store has a second owner 10-22 with USII serial #. He says it had a pink stock on it and was changed to a Hogue overmolded black stock. Looks nice but I think it is overpriced at $450. Your thoughts?

I think USII was probably a Olympic Variation 10/22. That is the only Ruger I know of with a U S prefix.

I’ve no idea what USII means or stands for. But, I think they ruined any special or collector value by changing the stock.

For me, it should be priced like any other USED 10/22. $225??

USa Shooting Team II

In short, it stands for “USST 2“ (abbr USII) As it is the second version of the original USST model (2006) that was released in 2007 also known as the “Board Stripes” version.

If the serial is USII03319 or lower it would of came with the thumb hole USA Shooting Team Red, White and Blue Broad Striped Stock, model 01178. Serial numbers USII03320 and up it would have came as a stainless all weather model with a black zytel stock, model 1140 (K10/22RFP).

Correct.
The distributor wasn't able to sell enough of the race rifle version so the left over USII marked barreled actions were shipped out as black zytel stocked 10/22's. There may be other models too, but I've only seen the RSP as the overrun gun.
