Born in 1958. Pictured along side a vintage Brauer Bros. - St. Louis, Mo. holster.
Nice gun with a great story to go along with it.This is a 1978 model that I bought new. I bought it to use and use it I have. There are hundreds if not thousands of dead raccoons taken during the golden years of hunting barns in Iowa. There are hundreds of dead grooundhogs, possums and raccoons taken digging with my terriers. There are thousands of dead blocks of wood taken during the golden years of toasting wienies by the river and shooting bricks and bricks of .22 LR.
Someday, no hurry mind you, a grandson will own it. I'll be dead then and have no further need for a great shooting .22 revolver.
Must be invisible???Heres one you don't see every day. A very early Super Stainless Single Six "STAR" with the 4 3/4" bbl. Man, is this gun accurate. Big Larry
Thank you. It really is a nice gun. Didn't do much to it - white outline rear sights and lighter hammer and trigger springs. And of course the Pachmayer grips. I have big hands and need them. Holster and belt go back to the early days too. The holster wear has become a point of pride with me. Love to see guns that are well used and taken care of and appreciated. I know it's no collector piece, but as stated, that was never the purpose.Nice gun with a great story to go along with it.
It was smooth as silk until my dad sent it back for the recall (which he always regretted afterward). Now it is a bit stiff but crisp.mac66, what's the trigger like on the old 3 screw?
Sorry so long in reply..Do you have a photo of her?I bought my super single six in 1976 .
9 inch barrel.
Ivory grips on her now.
Ive carried that girl many a mile.
Still have the magnum cylinder too.
Only magnum i own.
I'm going to be getting some Moose antler, that I plan to replicate ivory with, and I'd like to see how it will look.
My gun at some point in time had all the anodizing removed from the grip frame leaving it in the white high polished, and I wonder how that will affect it as well. Perhaps someone else has the same setup as mine. I know the engraved Single Sixes were done on the bare aluminum from Ruger. Right now it has the factory walnut grips, and looks good but I've always liked the look of ivory, I'm getting a big enough piece that I may even make some for my S&W M-19, all blued naturally.
The contrast will be even better there.
