Ruger Old Army .44 Stainless–Early Production

A Ruger Old Army .44 percussion revolver, stainless steel.  Excellent condition.  “Pre-warning” production. (It has no “Before Using Gun – Read Warnings in Instruction manual…” rollmark.) No box. Made in the late 1970s.  Serial number: 145-0269X.  This blackpowder revolver is in excellent shape, with just a few handling marks and a cylinder-turn line. Bore is shiny. It looks like it was never fired — only handled. The original grips are in excellent condition with a minor nick at the bottom of the right grip panel. 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.
