1978 Standard....grip question

My LGS knows I like Rugers.....hit me up yesterday because he's got a Standard for sale. First time I've seen one of these. 1978 per serial number and in good shape. My question is- I've read about the red then black eagles, but I've never heard about this kind. It's bronze or gold colored. Any thoughts? Wants $200 for it, which I think is on the high end.

Unless it is badly beat up or holster worn the $200 price is a good deal. By the looks in the picture it is worth the asking price.

You're probably right, comes with 3 mags. I have a used 1960 Mark I that's in great shape, for $200, so I guess I just don't see grabbing this-since it's a step down from the MI- as it'll never get the love from me it'll get lost in the pistol safe.

1978 Standard....grip question

Those are the correct eagles for that vintage.. they should be silver, so suspect something is on them to cause the color.
