Ruger is excited to offer you an opportunity to bid on and acquire rare, unusual, discontinued, or one-of-a-kind Ruger firearms and accessories. All items are available to qualified buyers as part of a "no reserve" auction subject, of course, to applicable laws.
Ruger first introduced the stainless decocker-only model P85™ pistol in the 1990 Ruger Firearms Catalog. The P85™ was the first 9mm centerfire pistol produced by Ruger in the Prescott, Arizona manufacturing facility. The serial number is 302-11737 and the testfire date is October 23, 1990. This pistol has never been fired beyond normal testing during manufacture. This pistol features a 4-1/2 inch barrel and high-visibility white-dot inserts on both the front and rear sights. The square notch rear sight is adjustable for windage. It has a stainless steel frame with molded high impact grip panels. Other features include an oversized trigger guard, full-time ambidextrous magazine latch, decocking lever, and lanyard loop. The P85 Pistol will be shipped in a yellow and black-hinged cardboard P85 box along with a 15-shot magazine, appropriate instruction manual, and original 1990 Ruger firearms catalog.
Up for auction this week is a 20 gauge Ruger® Red Label, Over and Under Shotgun. The serial number is 400-37596 and the testfire date is December 4, 1986. The shotgun had been sold to a distributor and subsequently returned. There are no notes stating why the shotgun was returned to the factory. This shotgun features two blued 26" barrels (with a gold bead front sight) and 3 inch chambers with improved cylinder and modified chokes. The pistol grip stock and semi-beavertail forearm are made from select American walnut with deep hand-cut, 20 inch per line checkering on the pistol grip and forearm. The red rubber buttpad and pistol grip cap feature the Ruger eagle logo. The shotgun is being sold "as is," and the purchaser assumes all liability for its safe and proper ownership, storage, use, and resale.
