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 item is a Security-Six® double-action revolver. Ruger's records reflect this revolver was roll marked on May 14, 1974. The Security-Six® revolver last appeared in the 1985 price sheet and had been advertised that, "with only a coin," it could be "...taken down to its basic components in less than a minute." This revolver was never sold and has never been fired beyond normal factory test firing. This .357 Magnum caliber revolver is blued with a 6-round cylinder, 4-inch barrel, and has checkered walnut square butt grips. Other features include an adjustable rear sight for windage and elevation, and a 1/8-inch wide serrated front sight. The Sturm, Ruger address is stamped on the left-side of the barrel, and there is no manual warning on this revolver. The grip panels have some "dings" in them so please take a look at all the photos.
Up for auction this week is a New Model Blackhawk® .30 Carbine caliber revolver. Ruger's records reflect this revolver was roll marked January 30, 2007. This New Model Blackhawk (.30 Carbine with the internal locking mechanism) first appeared in the 2008 Ruger Firearms Catalog and has since been discontinued. "STURM, RUGER & CO., INC. SOUTHPORT CONN. USA" is stamped on the underside of the barrel along with the manual warning. The revolver had been sold to a Ruger distributor in 2008, but was subsequently returned to the factory from a firearms retailer because it was the wrong model. Some features include a blued finish; 7-1/2-inch barrel; and black checkered hard rubber grip panels with silver-colored Ruger "SR" Eagle medallions. Other features include a 6-round capacity .30 Carbine caliber cylinder; a rear sight click-adjustable for windage or elevation and protected by integral frame ribs; and a Patridge-type front sight mounted on a ramp.
