    I have an early Red Label, serial number under 2000 made in the first year of production, finish is of course blue. I was wondering at what point production guns transitioned to stainless? Thanks in advance for any assistance.

    A little late answer, but I just joined! At the end of the all blued Standard and MkI production runs (the first 32 years) and right before the MKII introduction and transition (1982), Ruger produced their first Stainless Steel Standard, a 4.75" tapered barrel. This linited edition was stamped on the right side of the barrel "1 of 5000" with -Bill B Ruger- signature etched on the top of the receiver!
