    I had been wanting to find a pristine 4" heavy barrel Security-Six for some time now. Well, here it is! But, I must apologize for my pictures not turning out that good-because my camera just wasn't working good today! I can't even begin to express to you how much I love these "Six Series" Ruger revolvers-they really are great revolvers!:

    The grips were the original grips that had shipped from Ruger on the gun! Lett Grips, the company who made the factory grips must have found a nice hunk of wood to carve these grips from! Thanks for the compliment.

    Okay, I'm going to kid you a little here....

    BEAUTY??!!

    Did you slip and hit your head??

    How about ruggedly handsome in a M-60 tank sort of way??!!!

    It is always fun to find a gun that trips your trigger so to speak. It looks like a keeper! It is an outstanding example, love the wood in the grips!

    Nice find.

    Here's mine, although not so pristine. Mine is "Pre-Warning." Herrett grips.

    Congrats! I'm a S&W guy, but my 4" security stainless served me well for a long time. My folks have it now.

    That is one beautiful Security Six. I had quite a few of them over the years and the 4" heavy barrel Security Six was my all-time favorite. I usually put Pachmayrs on my guns, but if I had grips like yours, I would definitely use them. Very nice gun, thanks for sharing.

    How much did you have to shell out for that beauty? It looks like it's been kept in a safe! Anyway, it just shows to go you that you can find them. There may not be many, but they can be had if one is patient.

    I have a problem shooting mine as people keep offering to buy it.

    I have one in each barrel length and a couple of Speed-Sixes converted from .38 to .357. They're astoundingly accurate because the guy who throated them was a stickler for accuracy and precision. It they had 4-inch barrels and adjustable sights, I'd put them up to any Python out there.

    I love .357s, and that's one of the best.

    Great looking revolver slick6. Can't think of a .357 I trust more than my Sixes, and they do have a unique beauty.

    Yes, the new Security-Six(Above)was evidently kept in a safe and was left unfired. Although, I've always known how great the "Six Series" revolvers were, like most folks, I just took it for granted that I could pick up one of these in mint condition in any gun shop, whenever I went out on the "Hunt"-but, not anymore! Now, I've got to work up quite a swaet to find them now-but, as you've said, it just takes plenty of patience-so, one must not give up to easily-or, you'll likely, never get lucky in finding one!

    I paid $440 for the aforementioned Security-Six-but, I'd gladly pay this price again to get another mint specimen like this! Heck, it's cost me almost that much just in gas while searching for a nice Security/Service/Speed-Six! They certainly aren't growing on trees nowadays!

    I agree with you 100% regarding what you've said about putting the Security/Service/Speed-Six up against a Colt Python! And, there's no doubt in my mind, that these revolvers are one of the finest .357's ever made! Btw, you have a nice pair of Security-Sixes there! And, thanks for the compliment on my newest HB Security-Six!

    You have a "Scarce" old frame Security-Six there-because, only a few stainless were made at the very end of the "Old frame" production! Nice looking gun too! Since aftermarket wooden grips are hard to find for these, those sweet set of Herrett's look great!

    How do you like shooting with those later factory Ruger target grips? Several years ago I bought three of them(New in the package)directly from Ruger-but, I've never yet fired a Security/Service-Six wearing a set of those target grips!

    These are by far my favorite grips for shooting this Security Six. They fit the hand so well and I like the smoothness. I usually shoot .38 special or sane .357. For ultra-hot recoil junky .357 magnum loads, I would probably switch to Pachmayr grippers, to have some cushion between my palm and the backstrap.
