6700C Talo features a 5-inch barrel, two-tone blue and stainless steel finish, Cerakote slide
6702 commander
6703 Navy Seal only 500 made Has a USN SR# First edition
6704 Navy Seal Foundation Ruger 1911 CMD only 500 made Has a NSF SR# Second edition
6707 is listed as the same gun as 6708 on Talo's web site. So maybe it is a different model year?
6708 commander night watchman 4.25" barrel
6709 full size night watchman 5" barrel
6710 was for the Shootists 35th Anniversary gun. (Per Big Bore)
6711commander lightweight

6716 is a Talo Exclusive deluxe carry with CRKT knife. (Per Big Bore)
6717 All Steel Ruger Classic Commander sized 1911 .45 caliber. 4.25 inch barrel only 100 made (Per Terry)
All Steel Ruger Classic Commander sized 1911 .45 caliber. 4.25 inch barrel. Low mount Novak fixed sights. The slide is polished and coated with Black Tribond (Ionbond) DLC for high wear resistance, smooth operation and to reduce lubrication requirement. The pistol features unique thin black G-10 grips with Ruger Logo. A Bangers/TALO Exclusive. http://www.bangersusa.com
6718 commander lightweight OD green .45acp
6720 commander lightweight night watchman .45acp
6722 commander lightweight in 9mm
6725 commander SS Laser Grips
6728 standard (5”) Laser Grips
6730 commander lightweight with Laser Grips
6735 commander steel red frame and red grips .45acp
6736 standard (5”) Target Model
6737 commander SR1911-CMD-A-NSM Navy Seal Museum / TALO, 200 made, S.N. NSM001–NSM200.
6744 commander lightweight Alaska State Troopers 75th Anniversary – only 75 made
6746 standard (5”) steel special ed. NRA – black nitride slide with NRA logo and 2nd amendment .45acp
6747 commander lightweight Purple 9mm – purple grips & frame?

Special models:
1) 1 Of 100 engraved on both sides of the slide with simulated ivory grip panels and red logo.

2) 1 of 100 (186?) right side of slide has two crossed muskets with the numbers "12" and "2" on the top and bottom of the cross. The left side is inscribed with "TASK FORCE LETHAL WARRIOR" and "OPERATION ENDURING FREEDOM". The wood grip panels are engraved "RANGER WARRIOR" with an emblem with the number "4" in the middle.

“I had these done by Baron for my son's Battalion when they were deployed to Afghanistan in 2012. The 2nd Battailion of the 12th Infantry Regiment of the 4th Infantry Division was deployed to the Kunar Province from March-2012 until December-2012.
There were 186 of the SR1911's done; some had a nickname, or call sign, also engraved under the ejection port. These are generally termed "Deployment Weapons"; have no info as to whether any other SR1911's were made up as such. They were shipped to Specialty Sports in Colorado Springs, home of Fort Carson and the 4th ID.
I would think these would be pretty hard to come by. Serial# range was in the 670-44XXX; more or less.”


3) 1 of 300 engraved on both sides of the hi-polished slide and trimmed in gold. Inscribed on the left side with " THE RIGHT OF THE PEOPLE TO KEEP AND BEAR ARMS" and the right side with "SHALL NOT BE INFRINGED". The grips are simulated ivory with a bald eagle and scroll work etched in. (see picture)

4) 1 of 300 engraved on both sides of the hi-polished slide with gold trim. Inscribed on the left with "PROTECTING AMERICA'S FREEDOM" and on the right with "FREEDOM ISN'T FREE". Simulated ivory grip panels have scroll work and the letters "USA" in gold.

5) 1 of 500 All blue "Navy Seal" with the left side having the Navy Seal emblem and the right side the Ruger logo. The sides of the slide are hi-polished and the balance matted. The wood grip panels have about a 60% basket weave carving and the Ruger logo carved in the middle.

Ruger .45,
I have 5 6700s and 2 6702s. They will go to my grandkids. I also carry a 6700 at times.
As for the others, I am not that big a collector.
I like my 6700, if I run out of ammo, it will make a great blackjack!

I have to agree with Mohavesam...a new model to ME, means a different frame size, a different barrel length...or I suppose, a new caliber offering....but added some color...may be attractive to some but doesn't excite...

Now a 9mm model, or a CCO model or 10mm model...that would be interesting. Or a model with a match barrel and adj sights would be intriguing too.

In my opinion, the endless distributor exclusives is just a way to get folks to buy multiples of essentially the same model or to decrease competition and increase profit margins because of the 'limited' nature of these versions...

Ruger has lost something the last few years that I am not sure they will regain...their passion for excellence has been replaced with their passion for profit via high volume...

YMMV


NH Rugerman,
Bill Ruger is turning over in his grave.

Another model: 6743. :shock:
Talo Naval Special Warfare LW 9mm 'commander' to benefit the Navy Seals Foundation.

http://www.taloinc.com/new-blog/

Photo shows a black frame on the 9mm (as opposed to the gray frame showing up on some).
I still have not figured out if the 'standard' is black or gray frame for the LW 9mm. :?
