What is a STAR model?
Not mine. Not interested, just curious.
Thanks in advance.

If I under stand it correctly, It was a single six which was sold without a 22 Mag cylinder. They had the same bore diameter as a convertible gun. Others with more knowledge will be along to confirm or deny.

Here you go. They were made for one year in 1975.
They were a .22 lr only cylinder and were denoted by a "Star" stamped
on the cylinder frame in front of the trigger guard.
Heres an old post of mine, hope this helps.

the gun was marked with the "star:" as said above, AND the box end label was marked as a "
single cylinder gun", as well as the owners manual, it too was stamped as a "single cylinder" gun...all of this , makes the "package".....later, the "star" was changed to look like a "sideways arrow" or an "upside down house"????sorry ,no picture to explain that one...........
many at times, were NOT even marked , so 'records' would have to tell you if the gun was a convertible or NOT...........

The "Arrow" or "house" mark was used in 1986, if I remember correctly. Only 3 months worth of production on the single cylinder, .22lr. only guns. Designated as SSR-4, SSR-5, SSR-6 and SSR-9. Actually a very scarce piece to find. Sorry if I got off on a tangent there.........related to....but not actually about the "Star" models. Coogs.

I had 3 of them at one time........thought I wanted to collect them. I sold them a shifted my focus to other Rugers. I still see them from time to time at shows. Got into a habit of looking for the star or arrow.......

The rarest of the star models from 1975 is the blue 4-5/8" model. Brings big $, and is one of the great NM rarities.
