    So my dad has a Ruger .22 Mark I Target model. We want to find out how much it is worth. Some body told us that it is a collectors item. I don't know about that.

    The manual looks similar, and the top gun looks like our Ruger


    Any idea on a price on it?

    Look at the Ruger medalion on the grips. Most a black. If RED, value doubles. Color changed in mourning for death of Bill Ruger's partner. Go to Ruger website, you can download manual for your pistol.

    If the serial number falls into my collection could be worth a lot more to me

    Prices range from $795 for a 100% to $175 for a 60%

    +$100 for ruger addressed break
    +$250 for early hinged yellow, red and black Target Pistol box
    +$300 for early hinged yellow, red and black 5 1/4in Target Pistol box
    +$75 for early 2 piece yellow, red and black Target Pistol or T512 box
    +$225 for early 2 piece yellow, red and black T514 Target Pistol box.

    100% is not what your pistol is. A 100% specimen would be one that is unfired no rust no marks what so ever wrapped in the original wax paper in the original box with all original paperwork.
