Here is my snub nose Service-Six:

I only have two Security Sixes, a 2-3/4" and a 4". Both of them are a pleasure to shoot and the 2-3/4" makes for a very nice carry gun.

I bought the grips, then I found a gun for them.......

Found a rare pair of Farrant grips at a gunshow for $15 (the seller didn't know what they were, or what gun they were for). I knew they weren't for a S&W, and guessed they might be for a Ruger. After confirming that on a friend's gun, I watched on gunbroker, and got a very nice Security Six from before the "warning", and could not have acquired a better .357. Even with the still stiff action, it shoots like a dream, and is my only .357. ................................................................................... [IMG][/IMG]

A 161 prefix (1986) with the heavy barrel.

Great 357!

My well used Service six I was allowed to buy when I retired. Had a choice between that and the wundernine that replaced it. A no brainer on my part

Hit the report button if you find a problem.

I only have so many heartbeats left. I am not wasting them on things that are not fun.

My scarred up Security Six. Saw her looking desperate in a used gun case. She'd been sitting there for nearly a year, neglected and overlooked due to her disfiguring scars on her right side.
I took her home for about $190.00 OTD. She's got a great action, very accurate, and very reliable. She handles full tilt .357mag loads (DT and BB 158gr loads, specifically) like a dream.
She now wears Pachmyer grips and is my hiking/woods carry gun and even pulls nightstand duty pretty frequently.
I love having a gun where I don't have to care about the finish!

My Speed Six
rather be judged by 12 than carried by 6.

NYPD Service Six .38 Special.

When I was first shooting, I had all Smiths, my buddy had a Ruger Security Six. I liked it, but, it just wasn't a "Smith and Wesson".

I'm now a bunch older and smarter and appreciate what a fine revolver Ruger makes. I own and SP-101, an SPNY the Service Six and an Old Army. And, I now actively look for the old Six series.

Here are 4 of mine (and an SP101).

3 Security Sixs and a Speed Six.

By the way, I have replaced those thin grips with thick ones and the slender grips are for sale. Fair offers accepted.

My Security Six

Do you ever wonder why nobody ever robs the bag man for the mob? No, you don't.
