    I bought this piece in 2000 and fired it twice at the range. During moving it got misplaced, and I just found it again. I have never seen a barrel of the same configuration before. That's why I bought it.

    The barrel is solid for 5 3/8"" with the normal front sight attached. But the barrel keeps going for another 1 1/4"" with the top half of the barrel cut away and the barrel is threaded internally till the end of the 1 1/4"" extension with a 3/8"" disc at the very end of the barrel where it becomes completely whole again (as in a complete circle of barrel for last 1/2""). Sorry no picture my camera is broken.

    I hope my word picture will do.

    My question is do I have a turkey or a gem or something in between. I hope one of you experienced fellows can answer me as I plan to sell it and down size my things. I think its condition would be rated Very Good and being 59 years old that's not so bad.

    Fires perfectly and groupings are very tight, but Boy is that puppy heavy. Without pictures it might be hard but a high and low estimate would be appreciated. It certainly is one of a kind, I think.

    I would be glad to trade it for money to the right person. All laws concerning the sale of a firearm from one individual to another would be observed.

    Amazed no one knows even a little about the gun. Thank you to all that looked and couldn't help. I'll just have to muddle forward and get the info I need. Once again thank you all for looking.

    I have a feeling this might be a T514 with a muzzle brake. From the description it sounds close. This would fall in the time frame of the 2 piece bolt I believe with 1954 being the production date according to the Ruger serial number chart on their website.
