0 Replies and 6399 Views Alphabet Bearcat Cyliner  6399  0 Started by  EFR Greetings folks. New member, looking for advice. I recently picked up an older Bearcat which is missing the cylinder. It is what I believe you refer to as an Alphabet Bearcat, serial B57X. The gun is in excellent condition, just missing the cylinder. I can't seem to find a replacement cylinder anywhere. I called Ruger, who said to send it to NH and they would fit it with a cylinder. Well, the gun is boxed up and ready to go, but I just spoke with a gentleman this morning that referred m...

0 Replies and 5091 Views Need some advice on a 1954 Single Six with Ivory grips  5091  0 Started by  Brokegunner Hi, I posted this up on the Ruger Forums and it was suggested that I post it here. I was at a local ''honey hole'' a few weeks ago and the owner had saved a flat-gate single six for me with what appears to be original Ivory grips. He bought it from a widow and hung onto it for me since he knows I buy any SA Ruger that comes in. I paid about what a new Single Six goes for, so I think I got a pretty good deal regardless of the condition or value ;) Here are the pics: &91img&93http://i139.ph...

0 Replies and 6735 Views Need value of old Bearcat serial 730xx  6735  0 Started by  OlTimer I'm tying to get a value for a Bearcat with serial no. 730xx. The Ruger website indicates from the serial number it would have been manufactured in 1967 but I thought it was older than that. It has the walnut grip, gold-colored trigger guard and etched barrel. It's been kept in new condition and has no scratches or marks on it. Appreciate any assistance.

0 Replies and 7015 Views 3 Screw .41 Magnum Fire or not to Fire?  7015  0 Started by  predsfan98 Hello, I picked up a .41 Magnum OM Blackhawk made in 1972 at a local gun show recently. It came in the original box with instruction and parts manual. Once I got home and really checked it out, I noticed that it didn't look to have been fired. I took it to a local gun shop and he said that it looked unfired. My question is: Is it worth much more if it's unfired Or can I shoot it and not devalue it too much Thanks for any help guys!

0 Replies and 5789 Views "New" Old Model  5789  0 Started by  Boschloper After owning and shooting New Models (I am more of a shooter than collector) for almost 40 years, I decided it was time to try an Old Model. My first choice was a 6.5'' .357, second was a .30 Carbine, third was a Single Six, etc. Last Tuesday, a very nice little Single Six followed me home. No box, no papers, no magnum cylinder, I literally walked out of the shop with the receipt in one hand and the gun in the other. It came with a Hogue Monogrip (Why), and as soon as I got home I switched ...

0 Replies and 7720 Views Flat top blackhawk 357, year 1957  7720  0 Started by  jrscalf Hello, New member here, and I have a question on my Blackhawk. The serial number is different then I have seen before. Serial 98150, but the 5 is raised a little bit and there is a period stamped under the bottom left of the 5, the 0 is a little bit lower then the 981. Since I thought it was a 5 digit number I always thought it was a 1967 model. I bought it used in the 1970's so did not have exact information. I received a certification from Ruger and it states it was shipped June 1957 an...

A small lot of single action barrels were drilled through during the process of mounting the front site. The barrels were shortened to a non-standard length and then had their front sites mounted. These were un-cataloged but sold. Does anyone know if this true What model Where could I find the affected serial number range Any help is much appreciated.
