1959 Flattop 357 valuation help

Gentlemen, I need some help from the Ruger SA brain trust. A customer wants my help in selling a 1959 flat top .357. S/N is 19030. From one pretty bad picture he sent it does look like it has the "Micro" rear sight. He will be bringing it to me today so I can take better pictures and get any other i...

Re: Let the ribbing begin

Vince, Those are all really nice. Jackie gave up a long time ago and doesn't even say anything anymore. But I have told her where to go to sell all the guns should something happen to me. ROCS/Ruger guys get first crack, then off to Poulin Auction for the rest. I sleep with one eye open :o ;) :D

Re: Let the ribbing begin

Carl, I say that to myself every few weeks :o Jay, I do have a flatgate Single Six, it dates to May, 1956 (with box and original papers) and conservatively I rate it at 99%. :D Bennett, I enjoy shooting just about any style handgun and I do like shooting my SA's but I'm still a DA shooter at heart. ...

Let the ribbing begin

For your Saturday evening enjoyment. :D Sold a couple of guns (1 AR-15 and 1 refurbished Police Service Six) and had been sitting on the money trying to decide what do I really want. During the "pandemic" I built 2 10/22's from all the parts I had laying around and built 2 AR pistols (9mm/suppressed...

Re: Kuhnhausen shop manuals?

These are some of the best books for working on firearms and I would recommend them to ANYONE who owns a firearm that he wrote a book on. Not o...

Re: XR 3 Grip Frame

Jay, I would go with Dremel polishing wheels and polishing cones with Brasso(?) and then follow up with a good wax to preserve the shine. Then as the wax wears off from handling/shooting I would think a patina would start and if you're not happy with the look you can repolish/wax as needed. Just dep...

Re: German-engraved Single Six Magnum

Carbineguy, It might not have German proof marks if it was shipped to the Rod and Gun Club where the service member was stationed. Items like that are shipped just like they are being shipped to somewhere in the US as the base in Germany would be considered US territory. I bought several guns when I...

Re: 300 Blackout Subsonic loads

I don't have a load worked up yet, I'm still shooting some factory and getting ready to try my hand at forming my own cases. The shop has actually been pretty busy through all this nonsense and the weather has not been cooperating when I have the time to get out to shoot. I've got 6 guns to test, 3 ...
