i own a .357 flatop the original owner sent to ruger in the early 90's for reblue but it still retains that beautiful plum color loading gate characteristic of early rugers.

I recently acquired a 'low-back', an early Service-Six. It's been well used, and the frame is turned a plum color, at least the colored parts of it are.

The cylinder won't turn that color, because there is no bluing left on it at all.

They say the plum gives some character to the firearm.

Hossbreed44- Those grips on your avatar sure look goofy to me, wait a minute, those are the same grips on two of mine. Dam if they don't work . Just picking fun!
