Someone posted a MK III here a day or two ago with a Pac Lite barrel, suppressor ready.
They also.sell integrated suppressor barrels.

That said, $200 seems a little steep for that one.
But I'm living in the past, lol.
Think mine was that new!

DIY Duracoat candidate?

Have you ever stripped one?
And SUCCESSFULLY reassembled it?

Mainspring tricky to some.
A buddy picked one up cheap, guy thought it was broken.
Just wasn't reassembled correctly!

The secret is to hold them upside down when reassembling. It looks like a fine trapline gun as it is.


I have nothing clever to put here.

Yes, it can be tricky getting one back together. I had one and like a fool, I traded it for something better.. It was not. I watched everything I could find on getting that thing back together. After about a week, I got it. My advise is if it cycles smooth and not any problems. Leave it alone, if not flush it out good.

I would offer him 150, if it functions ok, the good thing about pawnshops is they will almost always bargain, I would almost bet they didnít lend more then $50 on that, the pawnshop rule of thumb is no more the 25% of what it will sell for unless itís a really hot ticket item

I have both a mark2 and a mark 3 the 3 has the heavy barrel but both are shooters, the 2 rides my tackle box for when the fishing sucks

I've got a Mark II, always liked the IIs better than the I or IIIs. Just me, no real reason I can justify, I just did. Mine is the heavy model with target sights, bought "used" for $300, it was still full of cosmoline so "used" was a relative term, doubt it had ever had 5 rounds through it. Only problem is that I can't hit the broad side of a barn with it, not the gun, it shoots fine for someone else, but I can't shoot it well.

If it functions and the barrel isn't shot out, I'd pay $200 for it. I'm rough on my tools and don't deserve nice looking things. That one has already been "broke in" for me.

A buddy of mine bought a MK1 in similar condition to that one, I gave it a tear down and cleaned her up a bit, Shoots nice.

I have mentioned to him that if he ends up not liking it that he won't loose money if he brings it over.

He paid under 200 at an online auction as I recall.

Yep, that one is a little rough

I would offer $100 and go from there. I would be happy at $125 if I was going to put some work into it (strip, ceracote, etc)

I looked at the mark 2 I said something about in your other thread yesterday side by side with a mark 4. Yes the 2 is more solid and trigger is better. They have 450 on the 2 550 on the 3.

The only reason the 2 didn't follow me home was I was going to trade one of 2 guns I have no use for. I plande on taking a lose and adding in som cash but not that big of a lose.. I may go back and buy it later if it's there.

A .22 barrel won't be shot out they can take so many of the low pressure rounds it's unreal. It would be more likely to be damaged from improper cleaning. I would offer him less but buy it if you want it.

One thing to remember on these is that the barrel is the gun. It is the serialized part. You can swap them pretty easy but you won't be able to have it shipped to your home.

dito I would offer 150 IF the barrel looks ok

no they are not a simple barrel swap like a 10/22

ruger will sell you that rear sight

but it all hinges on is the barrel a mess

for me the secret is a head lamp so I can see where the hammer and hammer strut sits and a pick to position it right , then it goes together fine every time but I need to see that it is right or it is a maybe.

Too rough, too much $$, pass.
Look for better, they are around.
Pay a decent price for a solid gun.

That gun looks like it was somebodyís favorite. I would not be afraid to buy it. Wore off blue wont hurt its functionality

This is my thoughts.

I have shot one of mine so much. When I was younger and bulk pack was $8.50 for 550 rounds and you could walk into any Walmart and fill a shopping cart full. I would shoot that thing untill my thumb was to sore and raw to load mags any more. I have used it for years hard use and it's sill great. It's stainless so once probably ten years back I polished it up and made it look new again.

I would put a new sight on the rear buy a few extra mags. Give it a good cleaning and inspection and shoot the heck out of it.

If mine was blued it would look much rougher than that one.
