Greetings men and women-

I have perhaps stumbled onto something of worth, or not... I downloaded the latest CDNN catalogue, and lo, on page 11, they remark that they've got Ruger Security Sixes, never fired. Supposedly out of some warehouse. For 350, you can have one of these..."rare" finds. Now I've always had a hankering for another security six, I have one briefly in a flurry of pistol trading in Texas, and it was a nice shooter. I'd love to get one for just good shooting, and it's a nice DA revolver. However, I'm not up to date on prices, or manufacture dates, or anything else about this model. Or...for that matter, dealing with CDNN.

Anyone speak to any of the above issues? Is that a total BS type of story they've got set up about these pistols? Price?

Thomas just might be getting a new pistol, depening on how you fellas react.

I've heard that they're 4", blue, square-butt, 150 series guns. The 150-XXXX serial numbers were the first production version, and there weren't that many made before Ruger redesigned the grip frame and changed the serial numbering to 151-XXXX.

Great guns, but the grip frame shape is a little off (hence the change). Grips/grip panels for the 150 series guns are impossible to find, so you'd better like the grips that are on it.

About CDNN - I ordered an ubelievably low priced set of Security Six grips that I was assured by e-mail would fit the 150 series. You know the rest of the story.

They were willing to refund the purchase price, but I had to ship them back at my expense.... more than the cost of the grips. Sold 'em at a gunshow eventually - for way more than I paid CDNN.

WWB,

Can you speak to the change, why they had to change? Uncomfortable, I assume. I shoot a 44 blackhawk often, and the plowshare handles I like fine. My SP101 I got a set of hogue grips for, otherwise, it'd not fit my hand well. All the DA Rugers I've fired, the super redhawks...the guns are too big for my hands, period. the Security six felt good, but it defintely was a 151 series.

Not familiar with the various versions of the Security Six but I have had a lot of dealings with CDNN and every one of them has been satisfactory. I have an order on the way as I write this. I bought my AR-15 through them, with transfer fee and shipping it was still less than I could get it locally, even with officer discount. I'd recommend them, hopefully your experience will be good.

Lots of complaints about the recoil biting the web between the thumb and index finger; plus, they just didn't seem to have the right "pointability" for most folks. The XXX-Six guns from Ruger all had small grips, so you ought to like that part.

On the RugerForum.com website, I heard they were all gone already last Friday, and were already showing up on the auction sites for a minimum bid of $50 more than CDNN was selling them for. Better check it out... you may have to spend your money elsewhere.
