As mentioned,, a great pic. But since you are newer here 101VooDoo,, as a collector who likes to point out the correct terminology,,, the 'red" eagles you mentioned,, are actually silver eagles with the red background. The true red eagles were only used on the earliest 22 semi's made from 8/49 until 1/52. The eagle was then changed to black to honor the designer of the eagle and his friend,, Alex Sturm. They changed the color of the eagles to silver in the early 1970's.
I'm not giving you a hard time,, I just like to help folks learn more about Rugers!
I'm glad you didn't get ruffled feathers about the minor correction. As for true "red eagle" medallions,, they were only in the 22 semi-autos. But,, quite often,, someone will take the OM medallions,,, (The eagle is a recessed vs a raised type,) clean out the black paint,, & re-paint it with red paint.
It would be a bit harder to clean out the red background,, and clean off the silver plating,, and then redo the NM medallions. It can be done,, but would be more labor intensive.
I actually have a pair of OM stocks that were done with the red eagles,, and of course,, they are NOT original. I have seen a few folks try & convince me that their gun was "bought new" that way. I saw a NM Single-Six with a set of OM eagles done in red that the guy SWORE his daddy bought the gun new that way. He refused to believe me,,,! Oh well.
if you want to see a pic of the red eagles,, I could take a few shots,,!
