This is a discussion on My Ruger Red Eagle, Serial 3343. within the Collectors forums, part of the Firearm Forum category; My favorite firearm from Ruger is the Standard/Mark series pistols. So when I ran across this collectors pistol on an auction site, I just had ...
What a great pistol..I've been thinking of letting my Mark I go so that I can finish an on going project. They sure are great little guns. How can one tell if their pistol was the "Red Eagle" version if the grips are not the factory originals? My Mark I has had the grips replaced with target grips. I got it in trade from the original owner who is now deceased. It is a 1958 model, 6 7/8 Hvy tapered barrel with the original factory Ruger compensator. Is it possible that mine was a " Red Eagle"?
If you call the Ruger records department at (603)865-2424 with your serial number, the nice ladies will tell you the original ship date and "shipped configuration" information. If you ask nicely, they will send you a FREE letter confirming this information.
