speed six 2.75" SS-32P

Post by Stonebuster » Mon Jul 13, 2020 4:53 am

I saw a SS-32 P with the hole for the lanyard in the bottom of grip frame. The serial number is on the side of the grip frame at the bottom. It's been lettered as such by Ruger. Anyone know what contract it may have been made for?According to the letter it didn't ship to Davidson in Greensboro, NC for several years after manufacture date

If it didn't ship to Davidsons for several years after it was made, it probably was an overrun gun from the French contract. Ruger periodically did/does warehouse "clean ups" and sends guns like this to different distributors. Davidsons seemed to get a lot of these. Knowing the serial number would be a help to better identify.

Huh. That's earlier than I would have thought for a 159- gun. ?
Davidson's and Ruger have always been tied at the hip. More so in Prescott, given their facilities are only a mile apart. I've actually had to go into Davidson's to find grips and other parts (they didn't buy just completed guns).

The SpeedSix was made and sold for a few years after the SecuritySix and other models were discontinued. Still, the late-production, final design Six series guns remain my favorites due to engineering advances the early models did not have.
