Well its been a long time since I have owned one, and now have made the leap. I just won an auction for what looks to be a pretty clean Security Six 4" blued. I also have a set of Sile fingergroove stocks on the way here for her when she arrives. Won her for 315.00.

An excellent gun. Truth be told, my all time favorite DA. Properly tuned there simply is nothing that holds a candle to it. The brute strength of the design made a perfect platform for many competition revolvers. I have a PPC that was based on a Security Six. Good many of my friends will attest to what it is capable of...

So your getting one heck of a gun for a great price... :)

Thanks Giz!! I had a SS version before, and let it slip away. I had the chance years ago to shoot a PPC gun this young lady had, it was prior to owning the other sec-six, and was flabergasted at its accuracy, and was sold on the design. So its always been one of those I had to add back in the fold. Yes as soon as I get her and her new grips, its off to the range.

A neat, strong gun, and you'll love it.
Just wait till you see how it 'takes down', without using tools.
Bill Ruger & Co. were serious geniuses!

I like that gun. I had a 2 3/4" in stainless and a 4" in blue. Great shooters both. Rugers aren't fancy but they do work. I have seen some beat up guns but the timing was always right on. Not so with other makers.

Very nice! A USPSA buddy of mine slicked one up for his wife (who I don't believe ever shot it - I'm still trying to pry it away from him). One of the nicest DA pulls I have ever come across.

Well here she is. After looking her over it seems that woh ever owned her never shot anything more than .38spl through her. No flame cutting, lots of crud in the cylinder charge holes showing shooting with .38's, and little to no wear on the outside. Looks to have been a bedside gun. She is also a 150-series gun with a very low serial number showing it was made in 1972, so she's from the original first batch of SS to come out. Now thats just very cool in my book!
For the price I paid, I now feel like I stole it!!! Here's some pic's.

Is it me or do I see some plum goin' on there? Ain't nothin' better than a plum frame as far as I'm concerned.

Leighton,
That gun's a keeper, for sure.
Had one similar, sold it to my range partner...still miss it.
And yes, a little 'plum' is a good thing!
:D

It does have a little, shows up more on camera than in person.
