I acquired one today for some money owed me. I checked the serial number at Ruger and found it was made in 1982. It's been used or carried enough to wear a lot of the bluing off of it and there were a couple of rust spots that someone tried to sand out. Other than that it's tight and nice. Heavy (they weigh 38 oz). It came with a nice western belt and holster with loop to secure i in the holster and tie down thongs. It has a lot of loops for ammo.
Since I haven't shot it yet, I am looking for some experienced owners to get your opinions. Thanks for the input.
