I got it. $363 out the door. I’ll clean it a bit and post pics this weekend. Looks very sharp. I figured it was the gunshop owners personal weapon and I was right. We had talked about the Six guns before and I knew he had a Security Six. He still keeps a Speed Six under the counter of his gunshop.

This deal is almost too good. This a discontinued model and the factory may not be able to offer service. However they are stoutly built and never break! Just an awareness thing, keep area under the extractor star very clean and dry. Even unfired powder granules under the star can cause the gun to bind. Also, if you get adventurous and take the gun apart it might not go back together if there is the slightest speck of dirt. I found this out when I took mine apart and could not get back together. I called the factory and they put me through to a supervisor on the floor who talked talked to several other workers. Their immediate advice was to look for the smallest speck of dirt that I might have overlooked. Sure enough, I found the tiny particle and the parts were easy to assemble. These are beautifully made, sturdy handguns .

That was a great deal @ $360.

I paid $195 for one 40 years ago. In today's dollars, that amount would be $723.

These may be the most under valued revolvers out there and they are still fairly readily available due to Ruger selling so many of them. For my money the Security Six is certainly one of the best all round revolvers ever made.

A 4 inch Security Six was the first Ruger I ever bought and that was back around 1977 or 1978 I think. I paid $ 212.00 plus sales tax back then for it new in the box from a local gun store in Houston. I have been a Ruger fan ever since. At that time I had no idea what a fine revolver I was getting for my money. They have not gone up in value like, some S&W or some Colt revolvers, but that is a good thing if you are thinking of buying one. LOL

Supply and demand is the only valid reason I can of for this difference in let's call it "collector value". Ruger literally sold millions of these fine revolvers so the supply has always been plentiful, which keeps the collector value down, but that has nothing to do with the quality of these fine revolvers.

So if you are a collector you might go for something a little more rare. If you are a shooter then the Ruger Security Six is a great gun for you.
