Ruger Firearms has generously donated a Police Service-Six® .357 mag – 1986 revolver to benefit the Scholastic Action Shooting Program (SASP). The revolver is being auctioned on Gunbroker.com now through May 2, 12:30PM eastern time.
We have for auction a Ruger® Police Service-Six® double-action revolver. The serial number on this revolver is 159-93030, and the production date is April 10, 1986. The revolver had been shipped to a commercial distributor and then returned to the factory. There are no notes as to why it was returned. A letter “U” is stamped to the right of the serial number located on the bottom of the grip frame. The “U” indicates a used firearm. This .357 Magnum stainless revolver holds six rounds. The major parts are heat-treated chrome-molybdenum steel. Features include a 4” heavy barrel and fixed sights. It has a square butt grip frame featuring checkered walnut grip panels with silver-colored Ruger eagle medallions. Service-Six® revolvers were first introduced in 1971 and were in production through 1987. The GP100® double-action revolver, which is still in production today, replaced the Police Service-Six®, Security-Six®, and Speed-Six® revolvers. The Ruger® Service-Six® revolver is being sold “as is,” and the purchaser assumes all liability for its safe and proper ownership, storage, use, and resale. The revolver is a part of the Ruger factory collection in Southport, Connecticut, and a certificate of Authenticity will be mailed to the winner of the auction.
Ruger has committed to supporting the Scholastic Action Shooting Program (SASP) through a series of Gunbroker.com auctions running through spring 2018 with a new auction beginning each Wednesday at 12:30 pm EST.
