It went for $1225 with 38 bids. Used with no box, no papers.
I saw a pair of ROAs, 5.5" Stainless with conversion cylinders offered for sale at LandRun for $2000 as a LandRun special. I do not know if they sold but the owner said the price after the shoot was over would be $2500.
Getting harder to find and more expensive.
Noz, is this the set?
I've always wondered about that as an option.
I always regretted it and always intended to buy another one. Some time within the last 10 years I bought another one some place. It might have been at a gun show. Mine had no grips or grip screw and you can tell that the gun has been shot extensively. It doesn't appear to have been abused but for example the blue is worn off the rammer. Anyway, even though I have owned it for years, I never fired it. So, I recently decided to dig it out and shoot it. I have no interest at all in customizing it; I think Ruger did it right the first time. Plus, in it's present configuration it is an exact duplicate of the first handgun I ever owned.
Thanks for the review of the Kirst cylinder.... I was wondering. I am having issues finding one in stainless, but since its really 4150 chrome steel anyway I just may get that one and have it plated locally. I sold a motor scooter to his ex wife I'm sure he will do me a favor!!
Buy one from Walt Kirst. Anything else is a mistake. If it costs you a little more, well so be it. Walt and Jay will see after you.
I got this from my cousin on Tuesday.
Does it shoot accurately? I am a 1911 fan so it makes sense to me.
Yes, but it has a little more recoil than a 1911. I ended up using copper plated lead as they do not recommend FMJ. I would of like to have just lead RN but none not really on the market.
