    It's a peach. Looks to be unfired! Unfortunately no papers or box, but for 430 bucks can't complain too much I guess. The revolver looks unfired, with only a hint of a scratch from handling here & there. 1965 according to the SN. (689xx) Heck, even the base pin for the cylinder has 95% of its bluing on it. I'll put some photos up as soon as the camera battery finishes charging.

    It's the cleanest OM that I've found yet.

    Hmmmm... It sure is correct. Thanks for the tip! What does it do to the value when you have a correct box but serialized to another gun? I suppose a correct box is better than none at all.

    Well I'm a lousy photographer and these photos don't do it justice! (One of these days I'll figure out how to use this new-fangled Canon Digital Rebel!) The cylinder pin hardly has the original bluing disturbed and the thing is well oiled. A very 'crisp' piece!

    [quote=""alabama""]NICE --om Ruger--I like the plum gate :) a box would be nice they are getting higher in price all the time :!:[/quote] I'm still debating the one on Ebay... I don't mind paying good money for steel, but for aged cardboard? eeesh. Had I [u]ever[/u] had even the remotest idea that the boxes were going to be collectable, I'd be sitting pretty right now. As it was, restless youth & travelin' shoes just weren't condusive to hangin' on to that kind of stuff.
