Re: Breast Plate Drill Grip Type

I'll do an RENE article on Ruger Corp. tools again sometime.
I'm kind of in the process of doing a rarity listing, over a year period or so, to see how the numbers turn out for models/variations seen.

Sportsman's outdoor Superstore

Suggest everybody start looking at this distributor's Ruger products! They are not a good advertiser, so a lot of these things will be super rare I.M.O. There's only 20 of these, a factory model... better hop on it!! Here's another one.. For you 10/22 collectors... there are only 20 of these! https:...

Sportsman's Outdoor Superstore

Suggest everybody take a good look at this company's Ruger offerings!
They are not a good advertiser! So assume many of these special distributor models will be rare.

Re: Early O.M. Super Blackhawk questions

If the gun in question is the one pictured at the bottom and then at the left, it is definitely high polish.
Both guns are actually high polish as all Super Blackhawks had the better finish once they changed in 1960, right up through to today.

Re: Ruger 06517 SSM-5F

Chad, regarding the John Wayne guns, I was looking around and discovered that there are two different model numbers; 6535 as well as 6536. Both seem to be the same but one may be blued stainless. Is that the case? Were there make-up versions of the 6535 too? Don't know. I only thought there was one...

Re: Article for Vaquero Style Single-Sixes

If I have enough space in the upcoming November RENE I'll be doing the article on Vaquero style Single-Sixes. If you previously contacted me about adding information to this article with serial number examples you have, please throw those by me again so I can be sure the info is included. I am parti...

Re: Early O.M. Super Blackhawk questions

That's a good looking Super! It looks like it might be a dull polish to me, just with a nice coat of fresh oil. Wipe some off the frame with a cotton cloth and compare the polish with a normal Blackhawk or Single-Six. A high polish will almost have a mirror finish on it, as long as you aren't lookin...

Re: Redhawk wood

There was a period about 1984 to 1986 where Ruger was using Goncalo Alves for their handgun grips. Looks like that's what you have there.

Re: 10/22's Made in the 200th Year of the American Liberty Sporter/Carbine

Don't read too much into Ruger's serial numbers, or the dates of manufacture on their website. Somewhere I can tell you how many 10/22's were shipped during 1976. But... Ruger made the statement in one of their company fliers that All guns anticipitated to be "shipped during 1976" would have the Lib...
