New Model S6 before and After

Looooong term single six project, just got it back together a few weeks ago with alot of help from posts on here !

There are some other posts on here about this S6 because I ran into some
re-assembly hiccups.

All internals parts polished to a mirror finish, all frame polishing done with wire wheel, scotch bright and Flitz & Mass. Wanted more of a Satin finish than than High Polish on the exterior parts.
All blued parts wiped down with Dicropan T4 then Oxpho Blue, both from Brownells.
The factory wood grips were stripped, lightly sandded and then given 10 coats of truoil spray, each coat rubbed in by hand. Grip medallions were hand polished with Flitz & Maas.
Still considering polishing the ejector rod tube...?

I notice on 98WhiteLightnin's SS the barrel is labeled Newport,NH not Southport, CONN. Did Ruger Move, maybe they they moved a while ago I don't know? Have 2 plants, plus they're in Arizona too right?
