Yes I kind of like them and think they are worth a lot more!!







I added the three DSP's to this list that will give all the stock variations from 64-71. The good years!!! There is a couple extras in there. A Carbine and Canadian. The first 2 DSP's are prototype stocks.

Any of the old Fingergooves or International with factory hand checkering are rare (the Canadian the exception) and very nice to handle and they do bring twice as much money. I didn't put these up here to show off. I like to bring interest in collecting these old guns. It can be quite fun and sometimes quite a hunt. I have a lot more and a lot more to find!! Some I have searched for years and still haven't found them!!

Ruger made the walnut Internationals and Fingergrooves both checkered and uncheckered from 1966-1971. The International even had a special barrel. The band that the front sight sets in extended the full length of the barrel. Showed in the picture. Also there was two types of checkering on the forend. The bottom one in the picture is the rarest.



A few low numbers. These are really neat seeing that the 10/22 must have passed the 5000,000 mark!!
