Just picked up a KRBN-415W, Sainless, Bisley, 5.5", .41mag for $400, plus fees, at a local show. Ser. no. 48-21124.
I'll call Ruger on Monday to verify shipping dates, etc. I don't have the box but the dealer promised if he found it he would send it to me. We'll see.
Gun is with out scraches, but has been used.
Ser. no. is outside of Chet's range (which is only about 300 deep) but within the 1,000 or so he thinks were made.
I think I did OK. :D

WAYNO's latest Acusport Bisley, .45 Convertible,

KRBN-455WX, s/n 48-3706x fired case date, 7-23-08

And, for the record, Acusport told me that this one did NOT come from Acusport.

Clearly it is a 2008, will you share the date on the casing bag?

The dealer send me the box! :D
It has all of the paper work and the spent shell. Shell date is 8-28-2003.
KRBN-415W, Ser. No. 48-21124, .41mag, 5 1/2" barrel, stainless.
I assume by the shell date that this is one of the Acusport versions.

That is really strange that guns with lower serial numbers of the same caliber and model were fired 2 and 5 years after yours!

I would love to do a scavanger hunt at the Ruger Factory :wink:

I called Acusport today about mine and the lady said that it shipped in October of 2007. She also told me that they had discontinued this model in January of 2008.

BTW, mine also has the black/brown/gold laminated stocks.
