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.
Our auction item this week is the third of nine Ruger firearms with the last digits of the serial number ending in "00148". This time around we have a stainless Ruger® Super Redhawk® .44 Magnum caliber, double-action revolver. The serial number is 550-00148, and the testfire date is May 18, 1988. The Super Redhawk® was first introduced in the 1986 firearms catalog, however it was not listed in the price sheets until 1988. This revolver features satin-brushed stainless steel with a 9 1/2" barrel. It has an all steel rear sight adjustable for windage and elevation with a white line outline square notch blade. The ramp front sight has an interchangeable Redhawk-style sight blade. Integral scope mounts are on top of the receiver to accommodate one-inch Ruger scope rings (included with the revolver). It has a 6-round cylinder and a one-piece Monsanto Santoprene grip with Goncalo Alves wood inserts. Beginning in 2008 this grip design was replaced with a one-piece Hogue® Monogrip.
You are bidding on a 25th Anniversary 44 Carbine rifle. The serial number is 103-07890 and the rollmark date is October 15, 1982. In 1985 Ruger announced that, after 25 years of continuous production, it would stop manufacturing the famous Model 44 autoloading carbine. Ruger offered a Special Edition of 1,800, 25th Anniversary 44 Carbine rifles to celebrate the close of an era. The anniversary rifle was listed in the 1985 catalog and the suggested retail price was $495.00. The 25th Anniversary Model 44 Carbine shows the compact design and classic lines which contributed to the great success of this model. These Limited Edition rifles are specially rollmarked “1961 – 1985 ~ 25th ANNIVERSARY” on the barrel, and they have a specially designed nickel silver medallion set into the walnut stock.
