I took this at face value ("it's in print so it must be true") but didn't actually measure it myself. Now I will go get the gun out and measure it on my own.

Just measured with my digital micrometer and ...... 3 3/4" (3.7580). Proves the old saying - you can't believe everything you read!

Thanks Rod!
Your welcome. Just posing the question, because with Ruger, anything out of the ordinary might be possible.

Regards

I was not aware that Ruger built a Single Six Convertible with Bird's Head grips. Can anyone supply some details? Year offered? By Whom? (Williams, Lipsy, Factory?) Quantity produced? Original OEM price?

I thought I had all the SA revolvers I wanted. I was wrong.

Edit: To add some information found on a search. This beautiful SS was offered in late 2011 by Williams as a TALO edition. The MSRP was $600.
Thank you!
I purchased this back in March 2011 from ACRYLICNK on Rugerforum.com. The Catalog No. is GKNRBH-3F-I. Its a special Talo edition and supposedly only 450 were produced. BTW, shes still a virgin.

Thanks for the kind words.

Yep, I saw a couple these sell for $850+ on Gunbroker shortly after I got mine. Looking back, I probably should have bought a couple when I had the chance..........Oh well, at least I have the one.

Congratulations & thanks for sharing.
I'd love to read a range report when you get it to the range.

Looks good baydog - you can keep us updated here or on the other thread or start your own thread. Let us know what you're planning to do. Is that a 45Colt or 45ACP?

If you use a photo site like Photobucket you can import photos directly into your posts instead of the smaller attachments. Not hard to do and is free. They're easier to see that way but it's up to you.

Wave, I will check out the pic tip, thanks. As far as my girl, she is a 45colt. I will start with some grips from swindler. Then a swap to an unfluted cyliner. After that she will prob go to Bowen's for a tune-up. Then who knows...maybe some engraving. Swindler has my bisley now, making some ebony grips. I just have to decide on a wood type for the bird grips. Maybe some holly for a cool contrast.?.?.?.?

I hope so too , Rod. Your little lady is the ispiration for my project. I would definately never "copy" your gun , but mine will be patterned after yours without a doubt. That unfluted cylinder is off the chain ! I would like to get the name and contact info. of your "smith" , Rod , if I could. Also, does anyone know an engraver that is reasonable ? Any tips would be greatly appreciated.

Wouldn't bother me if you did. Glad the Boars Head is giving you inspiration. The Gunsmith is Ken Doherty; he did the grips; front sight and cylinder. He also does engraving. Here is his website:

Bird's Head and Leather

Here's a few pics of my new El Paso Saddlery Tom Threeperson's holster, for a 3 " barrel "new" Vaquero. It's well made, a perfect fit, very compact and IMO pretty darn good lookin'. I plan on using it with my Vaquero Montado too. I wear it with a regular belt. Not a "gun belt".

It's nice and compact and will conceal under a loose shirt.

I really like this guys work, and also the ease in which you can choose the level of coverage, and he seems very affordable even to the average shooter:

The Gun Engraver, Jim Downing, Fine Engraving on Firearms and Knives

Here is another master, Michael Gouse who's work can be seen on page 4 of this thread:
