We have another .38 Special double-action revolver up for auction this week. This time around it is a stainless SP101. The serial number is 570-45527 and the roll mark date is January 2, 1990. The revolver has never been sold or fired beyond normal testing during manufacture. This model SP101 was first introduced in the Ruger 1989 Firearms catalog. "The .38 Special SP101 represented a landmark in firearms development, incorporating the engineering characteristics of the first double-action Ruger revolvers in a new, superior, compact size." This revolver is made of corrosion-resistant stainless steel and features a 3-1/16" barrel with full shroud, fixed sights, and holds 5 rounds. Other features include a Ruger patented recoil-cushioning grip of Monsanto Santoprene with inserts of high-impact modified resin of G.E. Xenoy. The revolver had been stored in a gray plastic handgun case along with an appropriate instruction manual and locking device.
We are auctioning off a .223 Rem caliber Ruger® M77® Hawkeye® African Rifle. This rifle was first introduced as "NEW" in the 2012 Ruger Firearms Catalog. This model only appeared in the 2012 firearms catalog as subsequent M77® Hawkeye® African model rifles were manufactured and shipped with the Ruger Muzzle Brake System. The serial number is 711-76756, and the test fire date is June 6, 2013. This rifle has never been sold and has never been fired beyond normal factory test firing. Our records state there are some "blemishes" on the rifle - please see additional photos. This rifle features a 23-inch cold hammer-forged barrel, with a shallow "express-style" windage-adjustable "V" notch rear sight and large white bead front sight.
