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 to applicable laws.
This week's auction is a stainless model Old Army® .45 cap and ball revolver, serial number 145-48891. It was rollmarked on June 7, 1982. In the December 1972 issue of The American Rifleman magazine, the "Dope Bag" Report found that "Ruger's first blackpowder... percussion revolver proves highly accurate." The revolver appears to be in working condition. Features include a 6-round cylinder, a target rear sight adjustable for windage and elevation and wide blade front sight, and 7-1/2" barrel. It also features American walnut grip panels with silver and black, Ruger eagle medallions. The Old Army® will be shipped in the brown cardboard box it had been stored in along with a nipple wrench, an appropriate instruction manual, and a locking device. The revolver is being sold "as is."
We have for auction a .38 Special, Ruger® Police Service-Six® double-action revolver. The serial number on this revolver is 151-00682, and the manufacture date is June 12, 1974. The revolver has never been fired beyond normal testing during manufacture. The cylinder does have a scratch around it likely from the cylinder latch. This revolver is made of chrome-molybdenum steel with a blue finish, 4" barrel, and fixed sights. It features checkered walnut grip panels with silver-colored Ruger logo medallions. Another feature of this revolver is the absence of the manual warning normally found on the left side of the barrel. The Police Service-Six® revolvers were first introduced in 1971 and were in production through 1987. The GP100® double-action revolver, which is still in production today, replaced the Police Service-Six®, Security-Six®, and Speed-Six® revolvers. The revolver will be shipped in a brown hinged cardboard box along with an appropriate instruction manual and locking device.
