Thumbs up I have a MK I or Standard.

Mint condition that I bought about 30 years ago. Still have the red box it came in. It has stamped on the top, Made in the 200th year of American Liberty.
Has this done anything to enhance the valve of it? I never really gave it much thought when I picked it up, just thought it was nice to see a mention of it.

I've put maybe 200 rounds thru it and its a great little shooter. Nothing fancey for sure, but still a nice gun to practice with. I've never paid much attention to rim fires and only mention it now because I just joined this board and saw the forum for them. Fact, after reading over many of the forums, I missed a bunch by not being on here. I would not let that happen again.

Appreciate your input if any.

Swampy

Conventional wisdom seems to be that if NIB, the 1976 guns would be $50 more than a comparable '75 or '77.

Ruger made more than 50,000 of these in '76, so they're more of a curiosity than a rarity.

Some people collect them. It's probably not a big enhancement, but I'd definitely buy one like yours over one of a similar vintage that wasn't made in '76 with the markings.

At some gun shows I've seen people ask a premium. Definitely a plus.

Wish I'd kept mine ...

Thanks for reply guys.

Jas, Ronnie, Eldman, all of your input appreciated. Its not for sale, I like it enough to keep it. Easy gun to practice with. I baby it for sure, and keep in the original box. Interesting to see that the print on top makes it a little different. Nice little .22 for sure. Thanks again.
