    I recently purchased this unfired Ruger Collectors Association Mark II .22 with ivory grips, the RCA logo scrimshawed on one panel, and the RCA logo filled in with gold on the top of the receiver.

    I bought it from a fairly large retailer who had purchased several Ruger .22 pistols from an estate. It has the cardboard Ruger Collector Association box, and wooden ""salt cod"" box, but no other paperwork.

    I contacted Ruger, and their reply told me it was made in 1982, the first year of Mk II production, and the grips were maybe Ruger limited grips, but had no other information.

    I bought Chad Hiddleson's book, and received it today. I was pleased to find out more about this Mk II on page 206.

    I assume this pistol wouldn't be a collectible without the original certificate (if it came with one), so it would make a very nice shooter, as I think most people who bought one in 1982 would have kept everything together, and unfired. I'm no collector, just a guy who likes guns. But if it was a really limited item, maybe I won't. I don't care about value, but I would want to preserve something if it was warranted.

    Reading Mr. Hiddleson's book it seems that the original owner bought the ivory grips from RCA, and replaced the (now missing) original grips. Is this correct? Thanks for any information you may have.

    (Excuse the fuzz :-))
