Excerpt from the Book:
Since its introduction in 1949, the Ruger .22 Standard Model pistol quietly took over the .22 pistol market. Its good looks, superior performance and very reasonable price tag gave it an instant advantage over long established brands on the market such as the High Standard or Colt Woodsman. America's shooters found a .22 pistol that delivered solid value and outstanding performance for the money. Ruger Mark I Standard Pistol circa 1949, with its "salt cod" box and Ruger cardboard carton, circa 1954-1960. Since 1950, the demand for these Ruger pistols exceeded supply. Ruger enjoyed a back-order condition into the mid 1970's.
