FIREARM HISTORY AND FEATURES:
The Ruger Police Service-Six (sometimes just called the Service-Six) was the fixed sights 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 (but also .38 Special and even 9mmP), 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 U.S. Military contracted for the .38 Special variant adding a lanyard ring to the butt and designating it the M108, to replace aging Smith & Wesson Model 10 for issuing to air crews and military police.
This gun is in excellent used condition. It is mechanically good and functional.
The overall finish is still excellent, almost perfect, with only some extremely light wear around the muzzle and front of frame (almost unnoticeable).
The original wooden grips are still in perfect condition.
The action is extremely tight.
