The serial number of this pistol is 500159971, and Ruger's records reflect that it was roll marked February 6, 2019. The pistol was never sold and has not been fired beyond normal factory test firing. This pistol features a simple, one-button takedown and precision-molded polymer grip frame with serrated frontstrap and checkered backstrap.

This week's auction item is a Ruger® No. 1 Medium Sporter, single-shot rifle in .450 Bushmaster.
