0 Replies and 2756 Views .357 vs. .38 special  2756  0 Started by  Ron Johnson Just a question about .38 Special used in a .357, I've been told that it does not cause a problem and I've been told that because of the shorter brass will leave ring in the bore. I tend to believe that it is not a good practice and have only ran a few boxes of .38 in my Blackhawks. Any thoughts

0 Replies and 9994 Views 1958 Ruger Single Six Question / Help  9994  0 Started by  repooley Hello, I just purchased a 1958 (serial number 96694) single six. The trigger guard and the grip frame is non-blued silver color. When I called Ruger, they stated that the gun was made in March of 1958 and stated that it was a standard model but did not have any info other than that. I orginally thought it was a light weight model but it isn't. I was wondering if anyone had any information concerning the silver trigger guard and grip housing. I bought it from the original owner who stated that he...

0 Replies and 2900 Views 44 flat top  2900  0 Started by  yellerdawg hello everyone I have recently acquired a 44 flat top with a 10.5 inch barrel and serial of 21111. According the the Dougan book the piece was manufactured in 1959. Upon calling Ruger records they tell the gun was produced in 1957. They also have no invoice to confirm the configuration of the piece. Can anyone assist in explaining how I may verify its configuration or when it was actually born. Any assistance would be appreciated. Thanks

They shoot like a rifle and even these old eyes can still get a good sight picture! They were a favorite of coon hunters in my neck of the woods. Here is a pic of a couple of good ones from my collection. Bill &91attachment=0&93RSS9 pic from GunBlast.jpg&91/attachment&93

Quite a few years ago I found a nice .44 Flattop on the table at a small gun show. I picked it up and gave it a good inspection and noticed that it had an XR3-RED grip frame!!! Hmm, immediately I thought ''not original'', but, gave it a closer look. No signs of the screws being touched, and, in fact they were covered with ''lint'', etc. It was priced at a very ''sky high'' figure. Hmm, I set it down and moved along. That evenin...

After over a year of correspondence I was finally able to purchase this old .357 Flattop and it arrived today. I bought it from its original owner who told me that he purchased it in Fairbanks, Alaska in December 1957 to carry on the DEW Line (Defense Early Warning Line) for protection against Polar Bears and such. He said that he only fired it once or twice just to make sure it worked. He sure took good care of it all these years. O...
