Re: Membership Dues

Check the lower left hand corner of your ROCS card, it will have an expiration date.

Re: low back vs high back

Here's some pics of both. Low back on left, high back on right For a collector, pristine/NIB/ANIB/not fired or lightly fired low back specimens normally command a bit higher of a premium that the same model in a high back, mainly because of the numbers produced. BUT, there are always the odd ball on...

Re: Doing more GP100 research

Michael, I have been trying to get through to PW Arms (the importer of this GP) but no luck so far. I'm sending them an email tomorrow to see if they answer. I called and left a VM last week but no answer. I asked on another forum about them but it didn't lead me anywhere other than apparently there...

Re: 1959 BKH-34 question

Vince, He is anal about marks and finish on the guns he has (he is not an older professor or anything, he's 36). The marks on the Blackhawk tell me it spent more time in a holster than being taken in and out of a holster, they were what I would call miniscule for a SA revolver that is 61 years young...

Looking for a No.1

Have a customer who is in the market for a reasonably priced No.1, he would prefer a .308 or .30-06 but will consider other calibers in that (.30 caliber) region.

You can contact me and I'll set up the discussion(s).

Thanks.

Re: Blackhawk 3 screw value?

Are they actually ivory? You can do some easy tests (if allowed) and if you look at/take some good pictures of the bottom of the grip that will also help. If you see a "grain" pattern that starts to narrow it down. If you heat a straight pin up red hot and try to push it into the backside of the gri...

Re: Doing more GP100 research

Yes, the "new" guys probably didn't do any history on the line they are managing. I found out about the not using the catalog numbers one time where I was talking to CS about the model number vs catalog vs description. She told me that she could give me the description if I gave her the model number...

Re: Doing more GP100 research

"Ruger confuses themselves sometimes." Yeah, and us too. Looking through my list I also see that in some of the newer models they use the full caliber, then barrel length, then what would normally be the underlug designation (but it's not like the first models) 1768 GP-3575 1 Blued, .357 mag, 5", ha...

Re: Doing more GP100 research

Chad, I don't know what to think about Rugers model numbers any more for the GP's. They started out with the "1" first digit to designate a .357 and later went to a "3" but even with the newer models they still use both the 1 and 3 to designate a .357. They seem to have used the "8" as the first dig...
