That is the question. This afternoon I found a nice Ruger Mk. II .22 LR pistol at a local gun shop for $275 cash, i.e., no credit card, no lay away. It is very clean, about 99% condition showing no evidence of being used. The emblem on the grips has the red not black background. AFAIK there is no box, etc. I know that if I can actually find one, a AA .22 LR top unit for my G-22 would be about the same money. I had been saving for the AA unit and hoping one day to find a nice Mk. II to replace one I had when a student in seminary. Now this one pops up. To say I am in a quandary as to what to do is putting it mildly. I have not seen a MK. II in such good condition at such a price. I do not currently have a line on a AA unit. What do ya'll think? Suggestions/opinions appreciated. Sincerely. Brucev.
