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 good, used condition. It is mechanically good and functional.
The overall finish is good with some very light wear around the muzzle and front sight, and some extremely light wear on some edges of the frame and cylinder.
There is an extremely light drag line on the cylinder.
There are also some small spots of extremely light surface rust on the trigger and hammer, which could be very easily cleaned off.
The original wooden grips are still very good, with only a few, very small scratches at the bottom.
The action is still nice and tight.
