My favorite Ruger double action gun is the Speed Six. I bought a stainless one back in about 1982 and have really shot it a lot. It has a 2" barrel and is very accurate. My first choice to carry in the car on trips, as well as near my bed.
I don't see them much any more though.

The 2" barrels are tough to find.

I wanted a woods/bear gun and bought a Ruger Super Blackhawk instead. However, even though I didn't buy this one, it's still at the shop, I may buy it yet. It's really sweet. Although a 4" would make more sense to alternate for carry.

I would like to clarify. There are no 2" or 3" security/speed/service sixes unless some custom work was done.

The factory snubbie sixes are all 2.75" barrel models and my favorite of them is this Speed six

Back in the early eighties you could buy them cheap and people bought them for beater guns. I had a couple of them 0ne I owned three different times. They were a gun you used to sweeten a deal. They have a solid frame on them and like most rugers they can handle hotter loads than a smith and wesson or colt. They also are easy to disassemble.
I read up on why Ruger stopped making them a few years ago.
Ruger always tries to make there guns so they can sell for less than the competitors. The security six got to a point unless they raised prices sunstantialy they were not making enough of a profit on them.
So they dropped them and came out with the GP that was less exspensive to produce.There was nothing wrong with the security six being inferior in any way just more labor intensive to make.I wish I would have kept one of mine but I swapped my guns around a lot years ago and I can cry tears big as horse turds over a few guns I wish I had held onto.
The security six like all rugers did not have the fit and finish or triggers a smith and wesson or colt does.But they are tough accurate and proven guns.
I think I was like many people and never thought Ruger would stop making them.

I stand corrected Mesinge2. 2.75" barrel. Just like yours. Mine has Pachymar grips. The best .357 ever.
