CHP over run

Post by zebra55 » Fri Jul 05, 2019 8:18 pm

just picked up a 1A CHP over run 357 Mag (no CHP etching). I was wandering if anyone knows how many of these were made? The RENE Reference mentions them, but does not give an estimate on how many were made...

I'm thinking 2-300? sounds like a reasonable number I heard one time......then again, I have small bouts of CRS...

1820 CHP’s and 180 non-. That’s about as good a guess as you’re going to get.

Ruger won't tell you how many this or that they have made, but people on forums that I access and knowledgeable souls I talk to who would know-if anyone knows, have stated this in the past and I tend to believe them since they have been correct on other issues. But as I said---best guess. I am somewhat of a No.1 collector and have four of the little .357's, sweet pieces of machinery. Regards, 021

I still really disagree with that number.
I have seen by far more non-marked CHP's than those with the bicycle wheel on them.
180 isn't much. In fact, you'd be a lot more hard pressed to find a 6-1/2" .41 Mag. Blackhawk with factory installed brass grip frame of which there were supposedly 160 made.
Just noting my observances.

A good question.
The hitch in that would be that of those that were supposedly sold to the CHP, how many of those remain in CHP gun safes?
I wouldn't be able to hazard a guess. Other then I've noted probably at least twice as many non-marked #1's in .357 as I have BKH42B's.
And the next thing is, the BKH42B sticks out like a sore thumb. The #1 not so much, especially without having the CHP rollmark.

I've had a few of the both the overrun as well as the Highpatrol model and in either case was always a tough sell, not many folks wanted a 357 magnum in a single shot rifle, for the MOST part, they were NOT collectors, and this was always at the OGCA over the years :|
in fact I recall my gunsmith rechambered one to 357 Maximum,and NO, did NOT "remark" the chamber,,,,never did with the 32 H&R Mag when he punched them out to 327 Fed Mag......hhmmmmm...so they are out there :roll:
