My Grandfather passed on to me a Ruger Std Model ser # 12xxx. He had the original reciet from 1951 and the pistol is nowhere near collector grade as it was a utility tool for him. my question is it had the black medallion grip panel and I thought it should have been in the red era bt serial #. Grandpa isnt around to tell me if he replaced the grips or not.
Sounds like a nice heirloom, I'm sure there are lot of fond memories. You are correct, it should have Red Eagle meddallions
