    Good afternoon, all.

    I'm kind of a sucker when it comes to rescuing unwanted classic guns. So back in July, I adopted a pristine 1976-vintage Ruger .38-Spl Security Six. Except that it it has fixed sights and a supposedly original box marked Police Service Six. Note, back then, S/N was not included on the box label.

    I absolutely love the ""MADE IN THE 200th YEAR OF AMERICAN LIBERTY"" rollmark on the frame.

    This is where it gets interesting...

    And, about a week ago I get an authentication letter from Ruger stating, ""Our records show this revolver was shipped in November of 1976, as a model Police Service Six SDA-84, as marked on the box.""

    This makes me very happy. :D :D :D
    Anybody know where I can get more infomation on the rarity of this situation?
    Thanks.

    Looks like the frame was mismarked which sure makes it unique. A Six-Series Collector would sure find the gun interesting and desirable. Nice snag!!
