I can't seem to find much info on them, other than they were a run for Lipsey's. Any other distributors? SS and blued? Years? Availability? Value?

I am not talking about the special run of SS lower/blue upper guns for outdoor sports. Thanks.

The MK-4B was a production item,, while the MK-4BL was the Lipsey's edition. The MK-4B was a catalog item,, and while we have one here,,, I know of a couple of others locally.

As to value,,, they seem to be popular to those folks who have one. I know MANY of the ladies who shoot Miss Penny's gun,,, and a friends identical model truly enjoy them. Most likely they can be a little more pricy in general.
The Lipseys variation had a gold colored trigger, thick smooth rosewood laminated grip panels, while the medallions were of the silver eagle with a red background. 1000 of those produced. Those will most likely bring a premium if NIB.
