and another snowy Jan. day today, but all is well in Ruger land as one of our 'passed' customers family brought us Dads personal S&W 38 spcl Bodyguard ala 1960, but the goodie was this really nice "short" barreled old model RSS 4 X, later one made in 1966 ( serial 442,6xx) has the 'red' grip frame and the "Inc." in the barrel address, I see New model "short barrel " Single and super Single Sixes BUT not the old model 3 screws, in all these years of buy/sell.....only ever got a prefix model 3screw Super Single Six many years ago, but it turned out to be a 'cut down" to 4 5/8 inch and the front sight moved back, as it was shipped as a SC5.........bummer...but now worth the long wait.......;)
