Ruger first introduced the stainless manual safety model P89™ convertible pistol in the 1993 Ruger Firearms Catalog. The P89™ convertible pistol was in production for only one year. The serial number of this pistol is 310-34692 and the testfire date October 20, 1995. The .30 Luger barrel is installed in the pistol. The 9mm barrel with guide rod and recoil spring (included), are interchangeable with no tools required. This pistol has never been fired beyond normal testing during manufacture. It features a 4-1/2 inch barrel and high-visibility white-dot inserts on both the front and rear sights. The square notch rear sight is adjustable for windage. It has a stainless steel slide and aluminum alloy frame with molded high impact grip panels. Other features include an oversized trigger guard, full-time ambidextrous magazine latch, and ambidextrous safety. The P89™ will be shipped in the gray plastic pistol case it had been stored in along with two 10-shot magazines and an appropriate instruction manual.
This week's auction item is a Ruger® Mark II™ "One of One Thousand" sample pistol. Over two million Mark II™ pistols were produced during its twenty-two year history from 1982 - 2004. To commemorate the end of the Mark II era, the last 1,000 pistols were rollmarked "One of One Thousand - 2004 -." However, this pistol is rollmarked "RUGER MARK II PISTOL - One of One Thousand - FINAL PRODUCTION." The serial number of this pistol is 225-99026 and the rollmark date is March 4, 2004. The pistol has never been fired beyond normal testing at the factory. Like the final run of the original Ruger Standard pistols in 1982, it is constructed of stainless steel. It features a tapered 4-3/4 inch barrel; a fixed, wide-blade Patridge-type front sight; and a windage-adjustable, square notch, dovetail-mounted rear sight. The grip panels are made of butaprene-type hard rubber with sharp diamond checkering and have silver-colored Ruger eagle with red background medallions inlaid in both grip panels.
