Given the way my eyes are working i'm considering looking for a 2 3/4" stainless Security Six and round butting it. Six series guns are awesome revolvers

Wow, there are some really nice revolvers in this thread. OP, while Sixes are not always found in abundance at gun shops, there are usually quite a few for sale on Gunbroker. They tend to be available in excellent condition, and are quite affordable. Similar Smith & Wessons seem to go for $700-800 and up, while Rugers are often found for $400-450.

I have a blued four inch Security-Six, and I really like it. I have to keep a close eye on it at the range, too, as other shooters keep trying to buy it.

I picked up an early blued Security Six a few years back. Pre owners manual roll marks. It's in great shape, smooth trigger and more accurate than I could ever be. It did need some deep cleaning though. I'm assuming it had been doused pretty heavily in WD40 and left alone for years. It basically varnished over the internals.

Sold a new S&W M&P 2.0 for a 1982 Security Six. Well worth it. It's a hoot to shoot, not my only 357 but it's probably the most fun to shoot. Those are the original grips and are in great shape, it also has the original box. After looking it over at home, I think it was rarely shot or messed with. I have a Pachmayr Gripper on it now.

My wife just got this Security Six off Gunbroker, it is in like new condition. Looks like it had hardly been shot. She replaced the Pacymar grips with a set of Badger grips she likes better, both for looks and feel.

I found the trigger to be rather different than my GP-100, which I got new a year ago. The pull on the Six in DA is a lot shorter. It's like the hammer falls a lot quicker than you expect. The GP has a longer trigger throw in DA and also has a little click in it, it seems. I'd say the trigger on the Six is a lot easier to shoot. Is this normal in comparing the difference in the two triggers?

I see the Six Series guns on GunBroker all the time.... the Speed, Service, Security. They typically sell for right around what a new GP100 would sell for, not a bad deal if you ask me, they're only going to go up in value.

In the 90's I had over 30 firearms. I went through a rough divorce and subsequent financial difficulties and had to sell most of my collection. The only handgun I kept was my Ruger Speed Six.

It sat by my bedside, has accompanied me on many road trips and camping expeditions through the years and continues to this day.

I'm doing considerably better now and can basically afford almost any gun I want (within reason), but my trusted old Speed Six is still my "go to" for personal protection. Like a lifelong trusted friend, I know it will never let me down.

I wonder. Parts for the guns are getting scarce or are already nonexistent. A bit like Colt, the guns stop being used eventually. Ruger won't help except to sell you a replacement and retire your Six. Before paying too much more for a Security Six I would get a Match Champion. I do have a Security Six and really favor the gun.
