GP100® Ohio State Highway Patrol
This week's auction is a stainless Ruger® GP100® 357 Magnum caliber, double-action revolver. The serial number is 172-00673, and the rollmark date is September 27, 1989. The GP100® was introduced in 1986 and "Designed as the ultimate .357 Magnum for police and personal defense use." On the left side of the cylinder frame is the "Ohio State Highway Patrol" logo. There is no paperwork indicating why the logo is there, and why a firearm manufactured in 1989 would have the dates "1933 – 1983" as part of the logo mark. Some features include: a 4" heavy barrel; fixed sights; a round butt cushioned grip with walnut inserts; full-length ejector rod shroud; satin-polished stainless finish; and 6-shot cylinder.
10/22® Target Rifle
We have for auction a Ruger® 10/22® Target Model rifle. The serial number is 241-10062, and the rollmark date is January 23, 1995. This rifle is likely a prototype for the 10/22T that was first introduced in the 1996 Ruger Firearms Catalog. This rifle has an American hardwood target stock with checkering on the pistol grip and forend, sling swivels, and a black rubber butt pad with the Ruger Eagle Logo in relief on the pad. Other features include a 20 inch blued hammer-forged barrel with "RUGER HAMMER FORGED," and the Southport, CT address stamped on the top of the barrel.
