I went to Tulsa, as I always do, with a few particular guns in minds that I was seeking. And again, as usual, I went home with stuff I WASN'T seeking! I went looking for a Seville or Abilene .45 (preferably short-barrel), a Virginian Dragoon blue/CCH .45 (again, preferably short-barrel), a Smiff Model 43 lightweight kit gun, and a Ruger Lightweight Tri-Color Single-Six (http://www.gunblast.com/Hamm_Single-Six_Lightweight.htm).

Well, there were no Sevilles or Abilenes at the show, no .45 Virginian Dragoons (but I did find a GOOD deal on a 7-1/2" .44 Magnum - sorry, already got one), and no M43 Smiffs to be had. But I knew if ANYBODY had a Tri-Color for sale it would be our buddy Bill Hamm. Sure enough, there were two Tri-Colors at the show, and they were nestled side-by-side on Bill's table.

So we struck a deal and I took 'er home.

bogie,

looks like you found some neat guns on your trip.

I have a question on this lightweight.........did ruger use a different method to anodize the grip frames on this model?

for some reason, on the lightweights, the grip frames always appear like a glossy black to me. it could just be an illusion due to the contrast of the silver frame.

Real nice lightweight!! I love it when the grips start turning brown! Great find... Thanks for sharing.

Wow, Boge, that's a really nice one. I'd love to add one like it my small "family" of Lightweights!

Awesome!
