    Found this today with the Walmart receipt. Purchased it 11 years ago and still got it but I put a boat paddle stock on it. Wish I had bought 4 of them.

    Today I changed out the factory trigger for a Timney 641C. For some unknown reason I didn’t take pics of the parts ( I always do this ) that I would remove before doing it. Well I had fun putting the safety spring back where it was supposed to go. I finally put my “ see up close “ hood on and...

    A month or so ago Tyler Gunworks posted looking for some work. We got to texting and decided I would send my 327 Magnum Ruger Single Seven to him for a tune and refinish. Another one off to Tyler Well, I got to thinking about it and those plain ol grips just wasn’t gonna do that newly...

    Anyone know where I can pick up a set of wood grips for an old Ruger standard/MKI pistol?Nothing fancy and dont want to pay a whole lot. Preferred unfinished because I would like to stain them. I want them to be specific without cutout for bolt stop/lock.

    Installed today: Bolt shim(.002) Trigger shims(.003 x 2) Volquartsen sear and spring. Reduced trigger pull from 5.5# to 2.5#. These parts and excellent instruction videos are from triggershims.com. Great people and service.

    Picked up this 1962 Old Model Bearcat last week. Thank goodness it hasn't been sent back for the transfer bar conversion. It had a lot of wear on the bluing so I touched it up with Oxpho-Blue while I had it apart cleaning it. Internally it was filthy. It didn't look like it had ever been...

    I have a couple Ruger Bisley Hunters. One in 44 mag and one in 45 Colt. I had a scope mounted in the factory rings on the 44 mag but the scope was sliding with recoil and was playing havoc on my groups. So I ordered some mounts from Weigand and switched some stuff around. i put a Fast Fire 3...

    As some of you know,I’m going to try and get the girl (and myself) into Steel Challenge. I took here to one match that Phillip was attending for a walk through and to watch how it was done. She seemed to like what she had seen and through a long discussion while riding home she decided to give...

    Anyone seen the new 5.7mm pistol that Ruger is planning on releasing? MSRP is around $800 so it'll probably be $600-650 once the prices settle down. That's roughly half of what the FN Five-seven goes for. I've never really been that excited about 5.7mm, but it's nice to see Ruger put out new...

    I hardly ever see these up for sale but I’ve seen three in the last week. Marty got a 28 ga, my smith co neighbor got a 12 and today I got a 12 too. It’s in pawn shop jail but I got pics!

    Here's the link to a thread that's running on the single action forum. I thought some of you would be interested if you haven't already seen the grip frames: Brass grip frames by Ronnie Wells | Single-Actions Ronnie’s website is www.rwgripframes.com

    I own one but its at the gunsmith being tuned and having some match grade parts installed so I can't determine this just now but what I'm wondering is this: Do the Ruger variants on the original design include the often pesky Colt Series 80 firing pin block mechanism or do they utilize a...

    Is this upper wood vented handguard factory ? I’d never even seen a wooden upper on a mini14 till this one. Googled image didn’t show me any with holes drill in them. Seller says it’s factory. I’m doubting it. Thanks

    So, last week I traded for a Ruger 556. I was happy because I already have one and it’s a good solid budget AR and I thought, that even if this one hadn’t had a Magpul stock and a free floated hand guard, it was a good trade. It wasn’t until today that I discovered this model is known as a...

    Picked up a brand new Ruger Wranger, in bronze cerakote, today at the Academy Sports in Hattiesburg. Price out the door, after taxes, was a shade over two Ben’s. They had all three colors on offer, but once I saw them side by side, the contrasting colors of the bronze model gave me the fizz and...

    How did you celebrate Ruger Day? I picked up my second Bisley Hunter, the new 45 Colt. Pairs nicely with the 44, don’t ya think? :)
