My latest acquisition, a NIB Ruger Mark IV 22/45 with a 5.5" bull barrel. Just couldn't pass it up, especially since I got it at the dealer's cost of $281 plus tax.

Ruger Mark II Government Target Model (Stainless Steel)

I saw a stainless steel Mark II Government Target Model with a 6-7/8" bull barrel, serial number 219-524xx at a local gun shop that I think was made in 1993.
