FIREARM HISTORY AND FEATURES:
The Ruger Speed-Six was a fixed sights, round-butt frame version of the Ruger Security-Six.
Introduced in 1972, the Ruger Security-Six was a medium frame, double action/single action revolver chambered mainly in .357 Magnum, designed predominantly for the police and military markets.
Various versions of the Security-Six and Police Service-Six were adopted as issue firearms by various military branches and law enforcement agencies over the years.
Ruger revolvers are known to be extremely well built and robust, capable of handling the highest power factor ammunition and operating reliably in tough conditions over a long period.
While Ruger’s Security-Six line has been out of production since 1988, a total of over 1.5 million revolvers were produced and they remain well-liked and respected, as well as highly sought after in the second-hand market.
The Ruger Speed-Six was intended for use by plainclothes detectives and others desiring a more concealable handgun.
The standard barrel lengths available for these models were the same as those for the Service-Six, but also included a 3-inch length in certain law-enforcement contract orders.
This gun is in excellent, used condition. It is mechanically good and functional.
The overall finish is excellent with only some extremely light wear along the front edges of the barrel and frame, and a very light drag line around the cylinder.
The aftermarket Pachmayr rubber grips are still excellent.
The cylinder lockup is excellent.
This firearm is suitable for home self defense, as well as every day concealed carry (although it might be slightly heavy for a small framed person).

- IDPA – Revolver division
