Re: Red Eagle Grips

I’ll bet I can put these to good use on the right gun. PM coming, Don. Chad, not sure if you recall the brass red eagle grips I bought from Don a year or so ago. You had commented on the rarity when Don posted them. Do you know what range red eagle those would have been on? TomD 9327 is the highest...

Re: Red Eagle Grips

A rare set folks! That is the two piece medallion with enameled eagle. Only used from about serial number 3200 to 9400 (for the variety with that medallion without escutcheons). There are a lot of guns out there that have had that two-piece medallion bust off from the stem, and voila... no medallion...

Re: Rare Ruger M77RLSBZ NIB

From the box end photo this one comes up as a 7766. Mine comes up as a 7767 and looks like a DZ. Chad, could those numbers be for the DZ instead of the BZ? Looking at the OP photo, it is clearly different with only two colors compared to the three on mine. His SN comes up as model 0709 - is the .30...

Re: Prototype Bisley Single-Six

Yes indeed!
There was also a prototype .44 Bisley with rollmarked cylinder and 10-1/2" bull barrel. That one predated the other Bisleys that were on auction.
I know the collector who now has all of them in his collection (except the 2nd .22 Bisley).

Re: Red Label 12 gauge history

Should I expect a serial number in the 800 range to be the stainless version? Is there an easy way to tell the difference? Thanks, Troy Besides the blued steel receiver/vs a stainless receiver, plug your serial number into Ruger's serial number lookup page. I think they will show model number and t...

Re: Unusual SDA-34 SERVICE-SIX

Terry:
Does the subject gun at the beginning of this thread have a stepped barrel crown? Or is the crown normal.
For some reason, it looks like a heavy barrel.

Re: RSS9

Not sure if this is correct, but I recall the reason behind the blue interior was the end of the paper roll from the box factory. It was a way to tell when they were near the end of the roll... Steve Vogel told us at one of the Pennsylvania Ruger collector theme shows that the blue was a separation...

Re: 2 Millionth Blackhawk

Unfortunately no.
That seemed to have been an invitation only event.
Seemed like the auction wasn't even advertised during the NRA show... it just happened... an event for those with deep pockets to rub shoulders I guess.

I picked up a nice 1972 RSS9X this weekend. It was in one of the Robin egg blue boxes.
Send me a note on the serial number if you can so I can document that in the Ruger reference.
I currently know of 6-8. CHRugers@aol.com
