Security 6 weight changes with tapered barrel or scalloped frame??
Trying to figure this out.
Ruger Security Six started with tapered barrel and unscalloped frame.
Then in '79 they went to a heavier barrel profile, adding weight.
Then in '82 the scalloped the right side recoil shield to reduce weight.
So, assuming a Stainless 4 inch, would the early, pre-'79, tapered barrel model be lighter or heavier than the late, post-'82, model with heavy barrel and scalloped frame?
I'm thinking about searching for a 4 inch Security Six and wanting to go with the lightest option. I know the difference in the three configurations probably don't differ by much.
