Default Ruger 22/45 - I need some info. please

I just bought a used Ruger 22/45 Target Model.

It's in good condition, but other than the serial # on it - I have no idea if it's a Mark II or III.

Or when was it made?

Any advise on how to find this out.

I want to buy a couple of mag's for it

Do the 22/45 mags fit both Mark II & Mark III 22/45"s or are they different?

Thank you for your help.

Or go to the Ruger website. You can punch in your serial number and learn when it was made , etc.

...and download an owners manual if you don't have one.

You'll need it...and double jointed wrists for re-assembly.

Tack

May be wrong, but do not think there IS a Mk II 22/45 Target, only a Mk II 22/45. There IS a Mk III 22/45 Target, and a Mk II (no 22/45) target. And no, generally mags will not interchange. See Ruger's website for date of manufacture.

I own a MKII 22/45 Target. Stainless,bull barrel with adjustable target sights. The manual it came with is for Ruger Mark II autoloading pistols
Standard, target, government target, competition, and 22/45 models. Mine was manufactured in 1999.
