    Extremely nice family of Rugers there. I like the old Ruger SAs with screws.

    Rugers w/screws... made before some knothead got the idea to replace screws w/ pins held in by springs. Why would anyone replace a great system w/ one that has more parts????

    Some Rugers with three screws.

    1. 357 Magnum Flat Top, 1959. Has some fancy, value enhancing, nickel work. Has a set of Sambar stag grips worth just short of what I paid for this gun recently. Bought the gun for the grips. I am easily influenced by Leo.

    2. 22 LR Flat Top, 1959. Plain gun.

    3. 22 WMR Flat Top, 1962. As new. Box, docs, extra serialized 22 LR cylinder, and original factory air in the box. Box marked 22 WMR.

    4. 41 Magnum 1970. Plain gun.

    5. 22 LR Bearcats. They belonged to my father. Not really a three screw, but, they have a 4 click hammer.

    Some pics.

    I like the blanket also!

    Is that an arrow head or a "rock"??

    Long ago I had a arrow head collection from Northern tribes, some how some where in life they vanished.

    Actually they aren't connected. The hammer block/transfer bar was the result of the lawsuits & added to the models held together w/ screws but the pins that replaced the screws are just some engineering screwup.

    It had nothing to do with anti gun nuts. It was due to liability issues when they lost a lawsuit and wanted to protect themselves from others. They went beyond what most companies would have done. My Rough Rider is not drop safe and will go off if dropped with a cartridge in the cylinder (guess how I know) and Heritage uses a safety instead of installing a transfer bar safety like Ruger did.
