LGS has a 4" SS Sec-Six. Serial # is a 150 prefix which I believe is a low back. Metal is nice but the stock's are worn. Is it worth $375+taxes and NICS? If I buy it I'd clean it up and replace the stocks. What are they worth?

Worth 50% more than asking price to the right person.

Low back stainless Six Series are very scarce.

I'll take it if you don't.

Am I right thinking the 150 series is a low back?

Not all 150-s are low back.

I have a Speed Six 150-998xx that's the new grip frame.

Well, the LGS and I were are to come to terms and I am now the expecting father of a 4” stainless low back. In a couple months it’ll be MINE, MINE, ALL MINE!
Now to find a better set of grips for it.

Hittman wrote that stainless low backs are very scarce. Any idea on how many were made? Not that I intend to sell it unless dire circumstances arise.

Really no way to ascertain the numbers because Ruger doesn't give out production numbers and the serial numbers are not specific to the different models of the Six series guns.
