What was shipped?????? Possibly some where around the <10,000 figure. It was always thought that production was about 25% 7 1/2" and 75% 10 1/2. Recording serial #'s since 1984, I'm finding about 38% 7 1/2" and 62 % 10 1/2" How many made???????? Highest recorded (not in public hands) and published serial # is 600-16314. At one time I had the highest recorded serial # out in the public (thanks to a good friend!) 600-11300.......that was top dog for quite a while............then another member ran onto a consec pair 600-11444 and 11445!!!!! Unfortunately , for me, I do not own those. And by the way PM me your serial #'s if you own one. Barrel length, anything odd, shipping box, box etc. Maybe someday I'll write a book!
Another question you may want to ask is how many were destroyed.
But..............I'll have more on that later. Coogs.

Coogs, you chastising me again for making the 414 Supermag? :lol: Remember, all us converters do is drive up the value of your collection. Besides, that little project let me send you some parts for your stash! Oh, by the way, a 7 1/2 Maximum s# 600-11072 is on its way to Oregon. Another number for your records.

Take care,

Robb

So that one was yours? I cried when I was too slow on the Buy It Now.
Blurry pics made me hesitate.
Won't do it again!

Coogs- Didn't Ruger ask for maxie owners to return them to the factory too? How many are estimated and were they 'destroyed' too?

Yes Jimbo, I kind of went out on a limb and said I'd take it. I've done that a few times on guns that had lousy pictures or no pictures and so far it has been ok. Sooner or later though, I realize I'll take one in the shorts buying like that.
