A 5 round Alaskan in 454 casull ??

This is a discussion on A 5 round Alaskan in 454 casull ?? within the Ruger Double Action forums, part of the Pistol & Revolver Forum category; Would this be an old model ?? Its part # 5307 instead of #5301 (6 shot). Just curious since Bud's Guns are selling them......

Ruger's website (under customer service) provides the year a firearm was manufactured by serial number.

You could call Bud's and ask them for the first 5 digits and then figure it out.

I am pretty sure it's a misprint. Other places list the 5307 as 6 round 454 distributor special that comes with a fiber optic front sight installed and a chest holster included.

The only 5 round Alaskan I was aware of was a very small run of 5 round 480 Rugers.
