We have another "WBR" engraved No. 1 Light Sporter, single-shot rifle up for auction this week. The serial number is 132-68668. It is a 7x57mm caliber, and the testfire date is July 20, 1984. The rifle is an engraved sample shipped to Southport, CT for W.B. Ruger, Sr., but there are no records that he ever purchased the rifle. The right side of the receiver is highly engraved with the letters "WBR" engraved in gold in the center. The left side of the receiver is highly engraved with the Ruger eagle logo engraved in the center. Based on the design it is believed the receiver is an etched engraving with a hand engraved monogram designed and engraved by Paul Lantuch. Lantuch engraved several firearms for William Ruger in the 1980's. It has a beautiful American walnut stock with a satin finish and a red rubber buttpad with the Ruger eagle logo. The pistol grip and Alexander Henry-style forearm are hand checkered to a borderless design, 20 lines to the inch. Other features include a 22" barrel; adjustable folding leaf rear sight mounted on a quarter rib with a ramp front sight base and dovetail-type gold bead front sight. The rifle is being sold "as is." The purchaser assumes all liability for its safe and proper ownership, storage, use, and resale.
Up for auction is a Speed-Six®, 9mm Parabellum caliber, double-action revolver. The serial number is 159-95826 and the rollmark date is April 26, 1983. The Speed-Six® revolvers were first introduced in 1971 and were in production until 1988. The GP100® double-action revolver, which is still in production today, replaced the Police Service-Six, Security-Six®, and Speed-Six® revolvers. This revolver features a blued finish with a 2-3/4" barrel, fixed sights, six-shot cylinder, and round butt frame design. Other features include checkered walnut grip panels with silver-colored, Ruger eagle "SR" logo medallions. The revolver had been stored in a red hinged cardboard box. The revolver is being sold "as is", and the purchaser assumes all liability for its safe and proper ownership, storage, use, and resale.
