    I'm very proud of this like new, Liberty Model, Security-Six that I recently found. The original service grips were mint-but, I replaced those with the rare(Early Security six custom smooth wood target grips)that you probably have never seen? I think that they look nice-you may have a different opinion? Your opinions are welcome for this Security Six?

    I'll trade you my nice, shiny, new S&W model 620 for that old hunk of nothing. Really good offer, you should take it before you blow your hand off trying to fire that antiquated piece of............

    who am I kidding, Nice find, man:D

    That looks like a tank of a .357 magnum. Will you be hammering nails from the butt or the barrel?

    Very nice gun. Great Pics to. I really like the grips, but then I have always prefered wood grips.

    I am always on the lookout for something like that. I love the older Rugers

    Nice find.

    Truthfully, the Ruger Security-Six is a great firearm. I've owned two of 'em,
    but didn't keep'em as times got kind'a tight; and I found myself in a pinch
    for money. I would love too find another now, as I have enough resources
    and sense too hang on to it. Enjoy~!:cool: :D

    Yes, this Security Six is safe, because it was made in 1976 and therefore, didn't have the later, warning statement on it anywhere! 1976 was a pre-warning model year! Gotcha, on that one!:eek: :evil:

    I loved those old smooth Ruger stocks.

    They made the S-Six feel like my favorite S&W stocks.

    Smooth wood target stocks

    BluesBear:

    I originally had discovered 4 sets of these Ruger smooth wood target stocks and I had promptly snapped them up! I really like these too! I feel lucky, to still have two more sets of these grips available for some future purchases of any good Security/Service-Sixes, that might come my way(Hopefully?)?:)

    Smart man!

    I had NINE extra sets of speedloader cutout, smooth, Goncalo Alves S&W stocks (several still in the packages) in my storage unit. I bought every set Kiesler's had in 1993.
    Unfortunately the entire unit was auctioned off while I was in the laid up in "da home". :(

    That's about as good-lookin' a stainless Security Six as I've ever seen. I foolishly gave up a 6" model that I had bought new back in '77 and finally replaced it with a pre-warning 4" like yours. One question on those purty grips. How do they shoot?

    I have never shot my Security Six but, I can report that the smooth wood target grips feel real nice in my hand! BTW, thanks for your compliment on my revolver!

    I also have a 6-inch Security-Six(Yet, unfired)in a wood presentation case. This Security-six was a(1 of only 200)30 year commemorative gun, made for the Sacramento, California Sherriffs Department in 1983. This was my very first Security-Six(And, it is too pretty to shoot)! Following are some pictures of this revolver:

    You have a really nice Ruger. I was wondering, do you want to do a deal with one pair of your spare Ruger Sec. Six grips. I also have a Sec. Six and they would look hot on my gun;) . PM me if you are interested.
