Is that a 41 or 45 Bisley Hunter?

A KS-47 should be a 44.

OK, I am not logging the 44s as they are a regular production gun made every year and by what I assume would be the thousands :wink:

I've got Dad's Acusport .44 here. The serial number is 87-525**. It was bought in April of 2002.

Can you please confirm what model this is? I don't think that is an Accusport Model, but I could be wrong? Is this a Stainless Bisley? 44 with a 5.5-inch barrel?

I am just confused about what this is?

I am seeing these guns continuing to come out of Ruger in both 41 and 45. The test fire dates are very recent and there is no word of Acusport being involved.

I wonder if it is just more left over parts or if Ruger is making up a few of these now and then for training or ??? These dates and serial numbers and the switching back and forth between 41 and 45 is quite interesting.

Hopefully with more serial numbers and dates we will get a better idea on what is going on but there is a story here already when you look at the numbers that have been compiled!
