Then it was mfg between 78 & 86. They're exc revolvers and I carried mine from the late 60's to the mid 80's when I retired. It still feels like a part of me and I still carry it from time time. As a matter of fact, that's the one I feel most comfortable with. Good luck with yours.It does have wrap around wood grips and a n ejector shroud
You should've taken it to a gunsmith. No one I ever knew had one that shot like that. I used to hit a 3'x3' steel plate repeatedly at 75 yards along with my 122 year old BP Colt SAA. Glad your Ruger works fine.I had one of them, and at 25 yards, I couldn't hit a 3 ft square piece of card board. At 15 ft it was just fine. I sold it fast. I now have a Ruger lcr that i can hit the bulls eye at 25 yards.
That was maybe the most inaccurate gun I ever owned.
