Could NOT Pass Up a Classic Speed Six Magnum

my first carry piece when I owned a dancehall back in the '80's

ran across a nice one for not much money, so I had to snag it

built like a tank

very well balanced

smooth action and accurate

.357 barks like a big dog

Thanks

It came with a nice, Alessi IWB holster, a speedloader, and a couple of Bianchi speed strips.

I'll stash the original grips and replace them with a nicer set of factory Ruger wood.

Sweet looking revolver. Congrats on the new addition. I had a 4" Police Service Six at one time and that was a great revolver as well. Gotta love Ruger revolvers.

For less than $300, I wouldn't mind owning one. Preferrably around $200 for a good one.

I like the early Ruger 357s better than the newer GP100.

I agree. Nice revolver OP, damn nice. Try about 18.6 grains of Winchester 296, they thump.
