    I'm the odd guy that actually prefers a New Model (pins)over a Old Model (screws).
    Even with my 10 thumbs I can comfortably dis and reassemble with just a little cussin. And in fact most everything I do deserves a little cussin.
    A real advantage is parts . Parts are everywhere and easy to come by . Often Ruger will just send them to you. Parts interchange between models easily and very seldom require fitting. Grip frames , hammers, triggers, lifter/pawls, ' cylinder stops and sometimes cylinders all drop in for the most part. With just a little internal massage the new models can be made extremely smooth and buttery . Brutally strong and HARD to break.
    Old models are not supported by the factory unless converted to a transfer bar. To me , they loose all their charm as soon as they are converted.
    Old model parts are drying up , getting hard to locate and very expensive .
    As mentioned Old models are 5 shooters ,,,,,,,, And just plain loud and noisy when cocking.
    CLACK ,CLACK ,CLACK, CLACK.

    Young guys should hang out with old guys; old guys know stuff.

    Very nice Rutgers! As some of y’all might remember, I EDC a Ruger Speed-Six. Got a 4” GP-100, and have owned several Ruger rifles. I’m a fan of most Ruger products. Having said that, a Smith revolver handles like fine piece of machinery, lockup, trigger pull. Well, y’all know what I mean. Hank Name:  BE1F3902-2FE3-4A76-B1DD-B029DE57C512.jpeg
