This is a Ruger Mark I special edition produced to commemorate the end of Mark I production and the beginning of Mark II production. It is stainless steel and exhibits Bill Ruger's signature as well as the marking "1 of 5000". The gun is absolutely new in box. There is a red cardboard box inside a wood Ruger Box inside a cardboard shipping sleeve. The serial number is 17-00231. One magazine is included. The final original-design Ruger Standard Model pistol came off the assembly line on the last working day of December 1981, to be superseded henceforth by the Mark II Standard Model and Mark II Target Model guns. To commemorate the end of the Standard Model era, Ruger produced a limited run of 5000 stainless-steel 4 3/4-inch Standard Models in original wood-box packaging and bearing Bill Ruger’s engraved signature on the receiver.
