$150 is a good price for any Ruger 22 as for the differences, updates, safety issues and changes to make for a lower mfg cost. I'm not sure of the exact changes in each model off the top of my head but their is a compassion chart on one of the Ruger Collectors group pages you should be able to google it.

$150 is a very good price for any serviceable Ruger MK pistol. If it's a functional gun with a good bore, it's a good deal.

As for the differences:

http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Ruger_MK_II

Quote:
The original Ruger pistol, now called the Standard, had no model number, as it was the first, and for a time, only gun made by Sturm, Ruger. Prior to Bill Ruger's partnership with Sturm, he had successfully duplicated two Baby Nambu pistols[1] while working in his garage, from a U.S. Marine's captured Nambu, shortly after World War II. Although deciding against marketing the Baby Nambu Pistols, Ruger did incorporate the Nambu style rear cocking device and modified the Nambu's silhouette, plus he added a 4.75 in (12.1 cm) lightweight barrel with fixed sights.
The MK I added a Target model, which had a 5.5 in (14 cm) bull barrel, or a 6.875 in (17.46 cm) heavy taper barrel and adjustable sights. The MK II added a slide stop that held the slide open on the last round, and also was available in stainless steel. The MK II has been available in a number of barrel lengths; 4.75 in (12.1 cm) and 6 in (15 cm) lightweight barrels; 4 in (10 cm), 5.5 in (14 cm), 6.875 in (17.46 cm) and 10 in (25 cm) bull barrels, and 5.25 in (13.3 cm) and 6.875 in (17.46 cm) heavy tapered barrels. All guns with bull or heavy tapered barrels are Target models, and are equipped with target sights consisting of an adjustable rear sight and a taller, wider front sight, with an aggressive undercut to reduce glare.
http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Ruger_MK_III

Quote:
Changes from the Mark II

Addition of a visible loaded chamber indicator on the left side.
Magazine release moved, from bottom of grip to behind triggerguard.
All Mark III pistols with adjustable sights are drilled and tapped for a Weaver-style scope base which ships with the pistol.[1]
A new magazine disconnect prevents the pistol from being fired with the magazine removed from the pistol.
An internal safety lock has been added. Using a key, the safety can be locked in the "safe" position.
Shorter tapered bolt ears.
A smoothly contoured ejection port profile.
Thank you Ruger Legal Department...

If you happen upon a MKII that you like, grab it. Many prefer them to the MKIIIs. I have a MKIII and it's not too bad. I also have an AMT Lightning which was a shameless copy of the MKII and the trigger is dramatically better. The Mag Disconnect on the MK III can be undone, I just haven't gotten around to ordering the parts.

The threaded bull barrel model goes for about 350.00 new, and it's not a Mk I, II, or III. It's a 22/45. The difference between it and the Mk's is that it has the controls (safety, mag release, and bolt release) where the controls would be on a .45. And the big difference, it has a plastic frame rather than metal. It's pretty accurate though.

Do a search on gun broker (or something similar) to get a better idea of what that model is selling for.

skip that version. had one. they are the first model of the 22/45 and didnt work that well. if you get a 22/45 be sure to get the version that accepts regular 1911 grip panels stay away from the all plastic version like that one.

If it's from a private seller and no taxes and hidden fees etc than I would buy it,you could probably make a $50 profit when you sell it.
