Mark II need little help!!!!

I just inherit this Mark II from cousin, missing Magazine, with Tasco ProPoint Red Dot and strange set for to mount it.
Can anyone tell me what model this might be, the bracket blocks all information.
What do you think it's worth?
Thanks

It looks to be a Mk II Target model with a 5.5 inch bull barrel. It would say target on the side but the scope mount is covering it. I have no idea what it would be worth with the aftermarket grips, scope, and scope mount. I assume it is not drilled and tapped with that scope mount which would make it one of the earlier Mk IIs. The serial number is covered by the scope mount and would allow you see what year it was made.

They came with 2 mags. You can find them for $25 regular price each, or for around $20 on sale. I would get at least 1 mag, regardless of choosing to sell it or keep it.

I hope you decide to keep it. They're really great little guns!

There were many variations of Mark II that came out, but I believe the Hunter didn't exist until the MKIII.

Yeah: I've never read of or heard of a Hunter model Mk II, only a Mk III.

The Mk II Target 5 1/2" bull barrel pistol is one of the best. I have an early version in blue. It was my first handgun and is the most accurate handgun I own.

BTW, that is a huge red dot sight for a handgun.

The mount is manufactured by B-square. It is for non drilled and taped receivers. Here is mine.

Thanks, and since you own one, why would you mount Red Dot so high up from the barrel.
What is the reason, didn't it come with rail, or good locksmith more then likely drill and tap.
I never saw that combinations before.
Thanks

Yes, MKII, stainless, Bull-Barrel.

And by the way - A GREAT gun !!!

Out of all of the Ruger .22 pistols, The MKII is probably the most desirable as an everyday shooter.
There are more desirable models for collectors but, for me, the stainless MKII was the pinnacle of the line.

I would remove that monster mount, red dot and aftermarket grips. Return it to iron sights and put some type of slimmer grips back on. Clean it up and SHOOT IT !!

At one time I owned one of the very first MKII, blued, bull barrel models made by Ruger. It was an early 1980's MKII, probably 1982 manufacture, I can't recall exactly.
It was the most accurate .22 pistol I've ever owned. It would out shoot a lot of rifles and almost any pistol.
Like a complete Idiot, I sold it.
I've had a pile of MKII's after that gun and they've all been great pistols but I've never had one that could match the accuracy of that early blued bull barrel model.

Well, it didn't come drilled and tap'd and I didn't want to change the factory configuration. Also didn't want to remove the rear adjustable sight. This was the only solution available. Also if needed I could bring it back to how it came from factory.
