That MKII looks like it is in pristine condition; did you buy it new?

I bought the grips from RB (Ralph Brown) Grips Aurora CO just before he retired.

What year would you say that MKII was manufactured? I have one with a left handed grip that was in a box of junk i bought at a flea market. This one I have is a 22 cal. not a 177 Cal.

I have three Mark series pistols: a Mark II and two Mark I's all made prior to July 1975 so I'm not able to determine what year any of them were made.

If your Crosman airgun was manufactured after July of 1975, the first three or four digits of the serial number indicate the month and year the gun was built. For example if the first three or four digits of the serial number were 1179 or N79 then your gun was manufactured in November of 1979.

Also there were two variants of the Mark I and II having different features.
The Mark I and Mark II first variants were made from 1966-1980
The Mark I second variant was made from 1981-1983
The Mark II second variant was made from 1981-1986

a side note...I bought one of the Mark I's on GunBroker and the other on American Airguns Classified Ads. One came with the original box and papers. These guns show up for sale every once in a while on both sites.
