Those are original grips? I thought way back when wood was the grip of the day! If they are original, not that I'm doubting you, you can put on either the wood grips from a security six, or one of the Hogue offerings for a smaller, thinner grip, if that would suite your needs better. Personally, I would very much like to see Ruger re-introduce the Security, Service, Speed revolvers again. IMHO that is all the bigger a 357 magnum has to be, and I've owned two GP-100's!:cool:

Sweet! Mine is a favorite, though my wife likes it too, and it has become a house gun, kept where we both know where to find it, at a logical place to retreat in the event of an intrusion. Ours is not a snubbie, though, as it has a 4" barrel.

Sweet!

My very first handgun was a Ruger Speed Six...

My current carry is a Ruger SP101 snub..

Thanks for sharing.

I still have my Speed Six I bought decades ago. It has always been reliable. Now, it is a bit large to conceal. In the past, it was my little gun, but I wore a suit. I often used a snug belt holster or a shoulder rig. I am sure it printed a lot, but I did not really worry about it back then. It has a three inch barrel.

I have a 2.75" gun with worn bluing. I added a bobbed hammer, did a trigger job and painted the front sight. I also have tried several grips and finally went with a Tyler T-grip added to the factory wooden grips.

As others have said, it's pretty heavy but does feel good in hand.

Mine is blued. These aren't the original grips but I have them in the box. I bought this revolver in March of 1983.

I did get an action job on this and it is the smoothest shooting double-action I've shot.

My carry gun is a Glock but this is the gun my wife prefers. She shoots it well enough that I don't give her much crap!

My Police Service Six was smooth right out of the box. It is not a snubby anymore as I had Ruger put a 4 in. barrel on it. I have read on GT that some people think they don't have as nice a trigger as S&W's. You can't prove it with mine.

I got a bobbed hammer also for a blued but the hammer wouldnt fit!! ugh. I have the wood grips and the tyler also that makes for a great grip.

I wish Ruger had made them with a more rounded and concealable grip frame like the S&W model 19/66 with a 2 &1/2 in. barrel. The 2 & 3/4 in. barrel on the Ruger allowed for the full length ejector rod with no loss of concealability.

I have 2 Security Six revolvers. I have always wanted a 4" service six with the bobbed hammer. Mayby one day!

I wish Ruger still built the Six series revolvers.

I have a Service Six that I like better than my GP100.

The wife's 9mm. Half moon clips make for a fast reload and it throws 147 gr. black talons astonishingly well.

The kids like shooting it too!

I bought this one new with 4" barrel, .357. These are the grips on mine. It is a fine pistol.

Nope the rubber where the original grips..I put the wooden ones on the gun per my preference



Some of the Speed and Service Six models were shipped with rubber Pachmayr grips containing the silver Ruger emblem in the 1980s

Ruger made some beautiful revolvers. I had a Security Six in the early 80's and traded it for a Browning Hi-Power. That was a trade that I regretted almost immediately but I needed a 9mm semi-auto due to the job that I was working. The job played out in 6 months and I had a Hi-Power that I really did not like.

I would like to get another Ruger "Six" sometime in the future.
