Ruger is excited to offer you an opportunity to bid on and acquire rare, unusual, discontinued, or one-of-a-kind Ruger firearms and accessories. All items are available to qualified buyers as part of a "no reserve" auction subject, of course, to applicable laws.
Up for auction this week is a 20 gauge Ruger® Red Label, Over and Under Shotgun. The serial number is 400-37596 and the testfire date is December 4, 1986. The shotgun had been sold to a distributor and subsequently returned. There are no notes stating why the shotgun was returned to the factory. This shotgun features two blued 26" barrels (with a gold bead front sight) and 3 inch chambers with improved cylinder and modified chokes. The pistol grip stock and semi-beavertail forearm are made from select American walnut with deep hand-cut, 20 inch per line checkering on the pistol grip and forearm. The red rubber buttpad and pistol grip cap feature the Ruger eagle logo. The shotgun is being sold "as is," and the purchaser assumes all liability for its safe and proper ownership, storage, use, and resale.
Our auction item this week is the third of nine Ruger firearms with the last digits of the serial number ending in "00148". This time around we have a stainless Ruger® Super Redhawk® .44 Magnum caliber, double-action revolver. The serial number is 550-00148, and the testfire date is May 18, 1988. The Super Redhawk® was first introduced in the 1986 firearms catalog, however it was not listed in the price sheets until 1988. This revolver features satin-brushed stainless steel with a 9 1/2" barrel. It has an all steel rear sight adjustable for windage and elevation with a white line outline square notch blade. The ramp front sight has an interchangeable Redhawk-style sight blade. Integral scope mounts are on top of the receiver to accommodate one-inch Ruger scope rings (included with the revolver). It has a 6-round cylinder and a one-piece Monsanto Santoprene grip with Goncalo Alves wood inserts. Beginning in 2008 this grip design was replaced with a one-piece Hogue® Monogrip.
