When I get my copy of the RENE I will not have to ask these kind of question to show what I don't know about Rugers. I have been collecting SA for a while, but looking to add more stuff.

At the gun show I ran across what looked like the Mark II or III, gold all over it, short brl., 40th Anv. addition. The lady was selling her husband's stuff so she said, she had a price of $625.00. I offered her five but she would not move on that or offer a counter back at me. I have seen the Ruger Mark II and III everywhere but none like this. Did I leave something I should not have at the 625 price ??

It is NOT a Ruger produced special model. Seems that particular pistol was manufactured by Ruger BUT was modified by the American Historical Foundation. They were reported to have produced 950 in 1990. Original price was $995.00. The presentation case was listed at $149.00

Thanks Mike...I guess I should have moved on it instead of trying to make a better deal...oh well. It was a well dressed up auto.
