History lesson please

Post by JohnnySS6 » Sat Jul 19, 2014 12:37 pm

I posted this in the pre-73 section as well as I don't know enough of the specifics.

My father in law recently passed away. Many years ago I recall him telling the story of a Ruger factory mistake.
A small lot of single action barrels were drilled through during the process of mounting the front site. The barrels were shortened to a non-standard length and then had their front sites mounted.
These were un-cataloged but sold.

Does anyone know if this true?
What model?
Where could I find the affected serial number range?

Any help is much appreciated.
