Re: 3-digit Tricolor

Jay, I actually have a T3 FFL. However, in CA, one also needs a Certificate of Exemption which requires finger printing and a photo and is only good for a year at $70 a pop, I believe. And that only waves the 1-in-30-days limit on handguns for C&R only and they still have to go through a T1. So I'm ...

Re: 3-digit Tricolor

Thanks, all for the compliments.
Yeah, Jay, I tried to lay off but with Bill's encouragement I jumped in. Glad I did.
I got lucky but there seems to be some good deals out there.
I won't be able to bring this beauty home until the end of September cuz California. I'm stacking them up at my FFL.

Re: German-engraved Single Six Magnum

Yes, indeed, a BBQ gun. Very few will get to handle this baby. Thanks, all, for the compliments. I'm just amazed at the quality of the work and the subtle color variation in the blued elements. I'll keep digging for the story until I hit a wall or uncover it. Jussbad, I may have a pair of real MOP l...

Re: German-engraved Single Six Magnum

Finally got the screw to budge - there is no signature under the ejector rod housing.
I hope I can locate old records in Germany.
OK, I'll bite, what's a BBQ gun?

Re: German-engraved Single Six Magnum

Thanks, rugerguy. I have looked for a hidden signature or initials but can't find anything. There are a couple of small, engraved spaces where it could have been placed but... Anyhow, I am fascinated. There is a guy on the net who makes custom display cases so it will repose in one of those. Ivory i...

Re: Type 2 flatgate with stags

I started the 10-day wait on this gun yesterday. CA DOJ is apparently back on track for approvals. Took the grips off at the GS and they look genuine with both emblem stakings squarely struck. Some photos:

Re: German-engraved Single Six Magnum

Finally picked up the gun yesterday. Had an appointment to DROS my other single-six and turns out my FFL had been sitting on this clearance for a week. The delays have been frustrating but worth it because this piece is truly amazing. A thorough cleaning revealed detail I hadn't seen before and the ...

Re: German-engraved Single Six Magnum

You're right, of course, Bob, but there is engraving and there is an extravagantly engraved, silver art (a bear on a .22 pistol?) inlaid show piece like this. The cost of this work would have bought many guns, even then, so whoever had it done was emotionally attached to Ruger or knew someone who wa...
