Ruger

A Ruger Old Army .44 percussion revolver, blued steel and brass frame. Desirable first-year “Pre-warning” production. (It has no “Before Using Gun – Read Warnings in Instruction manual…” rollmark.) Factory black box with matching number. Has a low serial number: 140-0217X. Barrel is standard 7-1/2″ with ramped blade front sight & frame-mounted adjustable rear sight. Manufactured in 1972 (1st year) with blued grip frame that apparently was later replaced at the factory with a factory Dragoon style brass frame marked MR-3DB having same profile as frame used on Super Blackhawks. Brass frames factory fitted to some Blackhawks, Super Blackhawks & Old Army Models; per Dougan’s Book on Rugers that purportedly lists all brass frames as fitted by Ruger, this one was not listed. Accessories include a factory matching-numbered two-piece black and red box, customer portion of warranty card & two spare nipples. Box has slightly scuffed on edges but is not broken. Has a very good overall appearance. The brass frame has dulled, with age. Has a very light cylinder turn line and slight high point thinning most noticeable at muzzle. Near excellent bore and chambers. Very good oiled walnut grips w/ silver eagle medallions. Federally exempt. No FFL required. This model was discontinued in 2009, and they are getting scarce and collectible. (CGRU-098)

$52.00 (PRE-1965)

A Ruger Old Army .44 percussion revolver, stainless steel.  Like new condition.  “Pre-warning” production. (It has NO “Before Using Gun – Read Warnings in Instruction Manual…” rollmark.) In an original factory yellow cardboard box with manual. The box shows a lot of handling wear. (See photos.) The included Ruger nipple wrench does not appear to be original to the gun because it is used, and not in its original wrapper.  This revover was made sometime pre-1978. Serial number: 145-0601X.  This blackpowder revolver is like new — it doesn’t even have a cylinder-turn line! The nipples appear new and un-fired! The original factory walnut grips with Ruger logos are in very nice shape. Standard 7.5-inch barrel and target adjustable sights. Federally exempt. No FFL required. I also have a new-in-box .45 Colt conversion cylinder available, if legal in your state.  But it must be ordered separately.  This model was discontinued in 2009, and they are getting scarce and collectible.
