Book

I have a nice thick paperback book called Ruger Handguns. Very detailed and interesting chapters on MOST Rugers. But for some reason - no chapter on Single Six. What???? Also nothing about Security Six, my favorite Ruger centerfire revolver of all time. Oh, well.

.

Over the years since I bought them these books have been of immense help to men in understanding Ruger single action revolvers.

Those are some nice books. I am planning to get the Jerry Kuhnhausen manual soon.

A good article - thanks for sharing!

I've shared the story about my own vintage SS on RugerForum but don't recall if I've done so here. Mine was bought new by my late dad in 1955 and is one of the 1st few hundred produced in 1955 (just a few below 11,000 with reference to the OP's year of manufacture sticky). I was with him that day at the tender age of 8 yrs old and I still have the original sales receipt dated Mar 3, 1955, all the original literature as well as his western style Clark "Rebel" leather holster and matching belt. He also bought genuine stag grips (not OEM since no Ruger medallions). Unlike me and most of us here, that was the one and only firearm he ever owned. It remains in great overall condition.

I bought one of the last available new copies of the Dougan SA book shown in top LH position (first published 1981), obtained from a well-known member on RugerForum. It has a different cover picture though as shown below. Perhaps a later (or last) publication than is yours.

Edit: Just now checked RugerForum and the copy I purchased was in Dec 2012, described by forum member flattop44 as this;
New books, softcover reprint of John Dougan's great book "Know Your Ruger Single Actions, 1953-63".

That is a cool story. It brings back memories of hunting dove with my dad in 1956...when I was 8. Still have his shotgun too. Thanks for sharing.
