New Model Super Single-Six®
Our auction item this week is a New Model Super Single-Six® 22 LR revolver. The serial number, 63-63728, tells us this revolver was testfired March 24, 1975. It had originally been sold to a distributor and then returned to the factory. There are no notes as to why it was returned. The revolver appears to function normally. The New Model Single-Six revolvers were first introduced in 1973. Some features include a blued finish with anodized aluminum grip frame and ejector rod housing; 5-1/2" barrel; and walnut grip panels with silver-colored Ruger "SR" eagle medallions.
"U.S." Marked Mark II Pistol
This week's auction is a "U.S." marked Mark II .22 LR caliber pistol with a rollmark date of June 23, 1986. The serial number of this pistol is 210-18510, and is one of the few "U.S." marked Ruger Mark II pistols ever offered for sale (other than to the U.S. Government). Having been test fired only, the original inspection hangtag attests that on July 8, 1986 and July 9, 1986, this pistol passed all tests. It is not accompanied by the original government packaging and test target. In 1983, Ruger was awarded a contract from the U.S. Army, Rock Island Arsenal for a .22 caliber target and training pistol for the U.S. armed forces.
