I tried to add the model numbers and production dates the best I could. Any chance I can get a few people that own these check your serial numbers and verify my estimates?

I read on the "other" Ruger forum, that Acusport is releasing another series of .45 ACP/.45 Colt Bisleys.

I called Acusport and the sales guy I talked to looked it up in his system and there was no indication of any in stock or a pending order. Not to say it can't happen, just saying I couldn't order one when I just called :wink:

There are at least 3 series of the .41 models now. The first one in '03, another a few yrs later and then this last clean-up run of a few

According to my records, I bought my 45 Colt Acusport Bisley in December 2001 and my 44 Mag in November 2002. I bought my 41 in September 2003, so I think that date is correct.

Hope this helps.

Thanks, I added the dates but I should start a serial number list if anybody is game. I will start with what I can find on the web and we can use one or more X's for the last digit(s) depending on what everybody would like to share as that would not impact the date info.

Here is my Serial# info:

.45 Colt 48-22XXX The fired case is dated 4-7-04

Post subject: 

OK, I started a list. If anybody is interested in posting your serials, just try to only "x" the last two digits as otherwise the dates can be tricky. Also, if you have the cassing bag, post that date too esp for these "cleanup" guns like my 45 Hunter that seems to date from 2006 but was fired in 2008 :wink:

I will post the rest of mine when I get them...

Just a note regarding the 45 Hunter. It's my understanding these latest weren't really clean-up guns as I was told by Lipsey's months before these were shipped that they were coming. Perhaps the reaming ones or another small contract? Just odd that Lipsey's got them when the clean-up ss 41 mag Bisleys didn't go to Acusport.

Here's mine. Unfortunately, bought used in 6/07 with no dated casing:

KRBN-415W - model 00471
Ser # 2072x

On a side note, mine has brown stained grips. At the LGS today, there were new stainless bisleys, 5.5", in .41 and .45/.45. Each has dark grey/black grips. I didn't know that there were current production bisleys until I came back here to find the discussion re: "clean ups". I did notice that these two bisleys were 48- ser. nos., but that was all, sorry. If I get a chance, I'll get back to check other particulars. BTW, $495 and $595 respectively.
