Re: My Ruger Corp Collection

There are two different variations of the 1010 drill as well.... fully knurled or half-knurled chuck.

Re: >30 Carbine Blackhawk

When in doubt as to whether a brass grip frame may be original to a Ruger Old Model or not, always be sure to give the factory a call to see if it shipped as a brass frame model. In this case, if the gun lettered, it would letter as model BKH-31B. As flattop44 noted, none are believed to have been s...

Look closely at the Ruger envelope that is with the 1951 Ruger catalog and a minty T678 Red Eagle.

Re: 1946 Purchase Order

Bill Ruger's first prototype pistol had obviously been made by at least 1945. Production of hand drills at the Ruger Corp business didn't occur until at least October 1946, maybe late September at the earliest. Ruger's personal letterhead for the Ruger Corp also said something that also included the...

Re: Odd unmarked Security-Six

Ruger did a couple of commemoratives, the FBI commemorative and the Alabama Sheriff's Association Commemorative. Both had the large "RUGER" rollmark on the right side of the barrel presumably because each had the FBI and Alabama statement on the right side of the cylinder frame where the Ruger Secur...

Re: P89P

Be careful on the P94 lasers. Tac Star went out of business soon after Ruger built those P94's with integral laser, and the lasers will go kaput.
After that happened, Davidson's got on the stick and did a buy back for anybody who purchased a P94 laser gun from them.
