Sir,
Your rifle (1992) was one of about 1500 of the 1st stainless MKII Target Rifles. They had the barrels ready before the SS receiver's caught up. I have a .220 Swift in that configuration. The first barrels are polished SS the latter barrels were "Target Grey" in finish.

There is a picture on page 256 of Wilsons book "Ruger & His Guns.
Best,
Terry
