Customized Ruger Mark I model T-512

Well, I have to show everyone my latest acquisition, a customized Mark I, model T-512 with serial no. S 10-94167. The seller said it was part of an estate, and I bought it just because I think it is such a neat looking gun. According to the letter from Ruger, it was shipped in October 1971 and the "S" indicates it was shipped as a factory second.

I asked Chad why a gun might be sold as a factory "second." He indicated that it could have been used as a factory salesman sample, or it may have been on one of Ruger's tradeshow displays. It might also have been used as some sort of government contract or foreign contract, and the guns sent back to Ruger. Or, it could have actually had some kind of factory blemish. Regardless, he did say that there aren't that many "second" autos around.
