Super Single-Six Question & info

Post by JAYDAWG » Sun Dec 02, 2018 11:33 am

Picked up an unconverted SC6 yesterday at a pawn shop made in 1970. Only the 22LR cylinder came with it. Were ALL the Super Single-Sixes convertibles??

As I was leaving the guys says "I think I have a box for that, you want it?" SURE DO!!
I get it home and it looks like the box is actually a return kit sent by Ruger to ship the gun
back to them and have the transfer bar installed. There is an information sheet The Ruger
"Old Model" conversion kit (4 pages) It is dated 4/82. A sheet on shipping instructions and
even the unused shipping label to Ruger. It looks like the factory was very busy
doing these. See where they crossed off weeks and hand wrote in months!
Maybe that's why the owner never sent it in to be converted?!?!?!

Cheers,
JAY

I offered him $200 + $350 for a New Vacaro and ended up giving $600 for both AND a mag for a 521 Remington!! :D
