Welcome to the forum. That's quite a prize, given its age (1955) and condition. Congrats.

Sorry for your family's loss.

As everybody has said, that is a nice Flatgate Single Six - very early production. Did it have the original box & instruction papers with it?

Mine is a 1959 made Single Six with the rounded loading gate. Bought it new:

What a treasure! A classic flat gate Ruger that belonged to your late father. Thanks for sharing it with us. When I shoot my dad's Henry .22 or Savage .270 it's like I'm getting to spend more time with him. Enjoy owning and shooting that fine old revolver.

Hey There, Welcome to the Forum.
Sorry about Your Dad.
Hope you find a suitable Picture of your Dad to keep with that Firearm.
These days with all of the Electronic Gizmos and Gadgets real Photos seem to have lost their place.
Hope that Firearm stays with the Family.

Nice one, Brat. Type 2 Roundgate, in apparently really nice condition. Thanks for sharing.
