I don't see anything in valuation tools that would indicate the gun is more valuable if the safety modification has not been performed, but I would be interested in the perspective of guys that are actually collecting them.

From a safety perspective, I like having the transfer bar and being able to load 6.

Buying a converted model without the original parts in the deal is only a good idea if you don't really care about originality.

Yes, you can find the parts necessary to "unconvert" one, but you'd be looking at perhaps $100 for them.

Your gun, your money, your call.

Several Old model Single Six's at Cabela's today

I was at Cabela's this afternoon and they had no less than 9 - 3 screw singles 6's, at lease 3 of them with 2 cylinders, most with original configuration w/o safety mods. I was very tempted to try and negotiate a price on a couple of them. I recorded the serial#'s & will do a little research on them.

I didn't get them all but here are some of them:

547343 - $499.99 - no safety modification
20-10683 - 499.99 - no safety modification
21-00139 - Safety modification, no original parts - $499.99

Those three numbers indicate the guns are almost certainly convertibles.

547343 is a Super Single-Six from late 1967.
20-10683 is a convertible from 1969.
21-00139 is a convertible from 1971.

Info from Red Eagle News Exchange Reference of Ruger Firearms.

IMHO they're a little high, and the modified one should be less than the others.
