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.
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.
This week's auction is a .375 H&H caliber Ruger® Magnum rifle. M77® Magnum rifles were first introduced in 1990. The serial number on this rifle is 780-66445, and the test fire date is January 23, 1992. The M77® Magnum rifles were initially made with the "780-" prefix serial number. After a few hundred magnum rifles were built, the serial numbering was then changed to the "750-" prefix. This rifle was shipped to a wholesale distributor in January 1992 and then returned to the factory in 1996. There are no notes in the records stating why it was returned. This rifle features a 23-inch blued barrel with matted quarter rib and is factory machined to accommodate Ruger scope rings. It has a blade front sight and v-notch rear express sights: one stationary and two folding that is drift adjustable for windage. Other features include an ebony forend tip and black rubber recoil pad with embossed Ruger® eagle logo. The steel pistol grip cap also features the Ruger® eagle logo. The M77® Magnum rifle has a steel hinged floorplate and trigger guard with a staggered box magazine that holds four cartridges. The stock is high-grade Circassian walnut with hand cut checkering on the pistol grip and forend.
