Re: American Rifleman article

Bennett that is a great article on the Single Six. Ruger got it right when they put it on the market. They did the same with their .22 pistol. You can not buy a new Colt Woodsman or High Standard .22 pistol since Ruger took over the market for them.

Re: American Rifleman ads

I have most of The Gun Digest annual editions from the late 1940's thru the early 2000's with a few missing. They go in depth about "The small upstart company in Southport CT" taking it into the development of the Mark 1 and the single action revolvers. The 1954 edition has an engraved Single Six in...

Re: RCA RST6

You have the RST6 end label in your pictures. There are a lot of boxes that the label fell off because the glue was not the greatest. You have the whole package. Very nice looking pistol. Thanks for showing us.

Re: RCA RST6

If the box is a red hinged box with a white emblem I believe it is the correct box. In the mid 1970's Ruger switched to 2 boxes for their handguns instead of a box for each model. The boxes were marked RST4 and BN36 which were for the 4.75" barrel .22 pistol known as the Standard Pistol or RST4 and ...

Re: XGI

Too bad that Ruger did not go forward with this rifle. What was the reason they didn't?

Re: Another SR1911 Joins The Herd

Vince that looks great. You could probably run the case over with a truck and not hurt it. I bet a picture of your entire SR1911 collection would cover Bennett's pool table and then some.

Re: 3.5" barrel Ruger

I looked at the listing and it says there is no warning on it to read the manual. With the serial number listed it would be made in 1994 or 1994 according to the Ruger date of manufacture table. Also look at the muzzle taper vs the taper on a factory bull barrel. Big difference in the angles.

Re: 3.5" barrel Ruger

Ruger made a 4 inch bull barrel for a few years called the MK4B and a stainless version called the KMK4B. Looks like this one was cut down from a KMK512 if I had to guess.
