Re: New member

John,
Welcome to the forum.
If you drop down to the bottom of the Board Index page you'll find the classified section. I'm sure the No. 1 collectors here would love a shot at them, so to speak. Second on the joining ROCS thang.

Re: Transfer Bar conversion Proof Mark?

To accentuate the colors in a photo use a purple or deep red background, preferably velvet, indirect lighting with maybe a little blue/red color light to make them pop. A good digital photo manipulation app will also allow you to color-balance for best effect.
Very nice 3-digit by the way.

Re: Ruger 06517 SSM-5F

Resizer_16058401368443.jpg Finally brought the gun home. Sure is a nice six gun. The numbers on the front of the cylinder are actually electro penciled. But smaller and neater than I've seen before. The rear of the cylinder and grip frame are stamped S. What do these "S" stampingss denote? I assume...

Re: Ruger 06517 SSM-5F

I got a chance to look more closely at the SSM5-F when I did the paperwork. It appears unfired and looks great. The last 3 SN digits appear to be machine stamped on the inside radius of the front face of the cylinder and there is a 3 stamped on the outer edge of the rear face. Pictures later. Chad, ...

Re: Single Six in a Blackhawk box?

Thanks, Bill.
I have only seen the top of the hinged, yellow/black with red wreath box. It has the original buyers notes regarding the purchase written on it and the seller is calling it the original box. Interestingly, the notes say it was bought in 1958 but the SN dates it to 1960.

Re: Single Six in a Blackhawk box?

Has anyone ever heard of this happening? Would a letter (I still remember those) confirm it if it did? Much thanks for any insight.

Single Six in a Blackhawk box?

Is it possible that the factory ever shipped an early Single Six in a yellow .357 Blackhawk box with Blackhawk manual by mistake circa 1960?
