Re: Type IX ?

Maybe Ruger forgot to blue that one?
Could look like a zinc casting only?
If you take the grip frame off you should be able see one way or the other by looking at the top of the trigger.

Re: 250 Savage

I would be curious to know the serial number ranges of all those involved, so we can get a breakdown of maybe where the rollmark change was made. A little over year ago we discovered that the original Number 1 rifles in .45-70 were only marked ".45-70" on the barrel. About the time the #3 came out t...

Re: Early 10/22 out-of-sequence SN

Yes, nothing at Ruger is ever produced and shipped in serial number order.
I know of a .44 flattop shipped in 1974 and another shipped in 1976.

Re: Type IX ?

The grips are not factory.
Are you sure it is a blue trigger? Looks like a lot of chrome on it.

Re: Straight handled drill on eBay

I do know of a blue stick drill with wood handle that is without the Ruger Corp rollmark at the top front of the gear shaft, but not sure somebody didn't make that one. The condition was as close to mint as one could imagine. The aluminum extension on these are interesting. At one time I don't think...

Re: Ruger M77 416 Taylor

I noticed your msg about the 416 Taylor. My husband was a Ruger enthusiast and in 1997 he had a 458 Ruger rebarreled to a 416 Taylor. They did the work at the Prescott, AZ site. I am interested in knowing more about value of this gun. Can you give me some information? It is interesting that the fac...

Re: Ruger 44 Carbine 101 prefix info?

Yes, Ruger had a safe prefix for a transitional change in internal parts. Here's what I have on them from the Ruger Reference... 44R with 101- prefix. The 101- prefix was given to this variety by Ruger since it has the old style of frontal trigger housing attachment (from the 100- prefix guns) as we...

Re: White Box Super Mystery *HELP*

I bought a pair of SBH guns in 1990 which came in the white box, and remember a short cleanup of 4" Security Six guns about 1994-95? in white boxes. I never gave a thought as they all came directly through Shooter's Supply in Phoenix, and went on the shelves as-such. I stocked dozens of them. :shoc...

Re: Straight handled drill on eBay

I see a straight handled Ruger drill on eBay for $345 buy it now. I see Ruger corporation on the hand crank but do not see the same on the shaft near the chuck. Could someone shed some light on this. The nice pics I see on this forum seem to have the Ruger Corp stamping near the chuck. Thanks in ad...
