Went to a gun show today and walked away with a 1973 4", adjustable sights, blued Security Six . OTD for $325. S/N 150-36XXX which according to Ruger.com was manufactured in 1973. The gun shows very little evidence of having been fired. I would rate it at 90-95% no box, no papers. (Yes I know you want to see pictures but my camera is in Scotland with my wife.) I believe this gun is a low back but not positive. Would appreciate any information available. Can some one provide me a link to RENE? Or tell me what RENE is short for? Google doesn't provide anything. I have one other SS a 1984 stainless 2 3/4 inch and a stainless 1996 4 inch GP-100.

Thanks

If your new Security Six is the low back grip design, it'll look like this:

Notice the grips are "rounded" on top; there's no "point" like you see on the Magna-style grips.
