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.
The stainless Mini Thirty® was listed as "NEW FOR '91" in the 1991 Ruger® Firearms catalog. "The Ruger Mini Thirty rifle is a modified version of the popular Ruger Mini-14 Ranch Rifle and is chambered for the 7.62 x 39mm cartridge..." This week's auction item is a stainless Mini Thirty® rifle with serial number 189-53470. The rollmark date of this rifle is August 30, 1991. This model rifle did not appear in the 1991 Ruger Firearms catalog nor was it listed in the 1991 price sheets. It was likely a limited production distributor exclusive. This rifle has never been sold and has not been fired beyond normal factory testing. This auto-loading rifle features a stainless 18-1/2" barrel, stainless steel receiver and trigger guard, a fold-down rear peep sight and blade front sight. Other features include a tree bark laminate stock with a molded sporter-type butt plate, ventilated glass fibre handguard, integral scope bases, sling swivels, and a 5-round magazine.
Up for auction is a stainless Speed-Six®, .38 Special caliber, double-action revolver. The serial number is 160-30907 and the rollmark date is August 8, 1983. The revolver has never been fired beyond normal testing during manufacture. The Speed-Six revolvers were first introduced in 1971 and were in production until 1988. The GP100® double-action revolver, which is still in production today, replaced the Police Service-Six, Security-Six®, and Speed-Six® revolvers. This particular revolver features a brushed stainless finish with a 2-3/4" barrel, fixed sights, six-shot cylinder, and round butt frame design. Other features include checkered walnut grip panels with silver-colored, Ruger eagle "SR" logo medallions. The revolver had been stored in a brown, hinged cardboard box with an appropriate instruction manual and locking device. The revolver is being sold “as is,” and the purchaser assumes all liability for its safe and proper ownership, storage, use, and resale.
