Re: Ruger sn#262-29534 NR4F

Hi Buckeroo, I am not sure how many were made. I had two of them - both were new - sold one and kept one to shoot. I love it. The one I sold went very quickly at $475 less than a year ago. As I understand it, these were an un-cataloged item, so I may have let it go for too little. I would be interes...

Customer Loyalty

To all Ruger owners, Just a short note to give us all another reason to love and collect Rugers. I recently purchased a NIB (18-year-old stock) Number 1 medium sporter in 45-70. It had (what I considered to be) a factory defect concerning the alignment of the barrel. Their customer service reps I sp...

Mis-alinged barrel or rib

I recently purchased on older NIB Number 1 in 45-70 (medium sporter barrel). The gun is in flawless condition except for one thing. The barrel is about 1/15th of a turn off dead center (front and rear sights line up ever so slightly to the left). This can be seen visually, but also where the rib mee...

GP100 Royal Phoenix

I am looking for a NIB Ruger GP100 Royal Phoenix. These are produced by Ruger for Lipsey's, however their limited runs make them hard to find. Does anyone have insight on where to find one? I have checked the usual places with dealers, internet auctions and such... not having much luck. Any thoughts...

Re: Screws for an Old Flat Top

Hey, good tip on the old army. BTW, I saw an Old Army 3 screw that looks new with the box reduced from $699 to $499. Is that a good price? It had a brass grip frame with a squared "super blackhawk" style trigger guard. Seemed a bit suspicous to me.

Single Six without the 22 LR cylinder

Greetings All, I have a chance to purchase a 3-screw super single six. Oddly, it does not have the .22 LR cylinder. It has the .22 mag instead. The gun is in about 97% condition, no box. Priced at less than $300. (Interesting Ser. # of 555550) 1. How much does not having the 22 LR cylinder impact th...

Re: Shooting a Collector Gun

Hi Pete, You are absolutely correct. You make several excellents points. I know that there will many gun guys and gals out there that have some true beauties that will never ever be shot. I truly do get that. Even I may come across one someday that I just can't bring myself to shoot. However, as of ...

Shooting a Collector Gun

I have been reading the posts and sense that there is an underlying sentiment. Should a person shoot a truly collector grade gun. My short answer is: Yes. My long answer is: Maybe - Mabe Not. I have what I consider 3 collector grade guns. 2 are 100% and one is about 95%. I shoot them all (or will). ...

Re: Screws for an Old Flat Top

Good point... I thought about re-bluing, but was not sure how it might look. However, like you said, it would not hurt to try. Anything would look better than how it does now. I am not quite sure how just one screw went bad when the others look perfect as does the rest of the gun. I assume I would s...
