Ruger Mk III with a custom suppressor - .22 LR. The MK II was replaced by the MK III in 2004. The MK II ceased production completely in 2005. All factory pistols after a certain year, are shipped with the Ruger Logo on the plastic grips. This is a film armory pistol with custom grips (that don't have the Ruger logo). This was done to make the weapon more into a stealth assassination piece and the 'bright' colored logo worked against that.

The Ruger Mk I-IV series of pistols are affordable .22 LR semiautomatic handguns developed by the Sturm, Ruger & Company in the years after World War II. The Mk I was Ruger's flagship handgun of the time, in Standard model and Mark I Target model, designed to penetrate the sports and recreational shooter market. Although bearing a strong resemblance to the German Luger P08 in layout and general appearance, the pistol is actually based upon a scaled down version of the Japanese Nambu Type 14.

The original Ruger Standard model (with tapered barrel) was in continuous production from 1949-1982. The heavy barreled Ruger Mk I Target was in production from 1951-1982. Each model of Ruger Pistol stopped production within one year of the introduction of the next generation of pistol. The newer marks introduced updated design features.

The Ruger Mk II was in production from 1982 to 2005 in Standard, Target, Government Target, and 22/45 models. The Ruger Mk III was put in production in 2004, adding a Hunter model. The Ruger Mk IV (a redesign with simplified takedown) was introduced in 2016.
