While I already have a 1968 OM SS with a 5 1/2" barrel and BOTH cylinders, I still couldn't pass that one up at that price!

The only blue-book that is accurate is what it actually sells for.
Same as houses, there are many sellers who are so proud of it, it never sells because it is priced too high.

However, the sky is the limit for collector and out of production items.
This is the same as buying beachfront property, cuz they don't make it anymore.

For example, I bought an old model Vaquero Bisley in 357 stainless.
It was the exact twin brother of my existing same model.

I ponied up the cash for the asking amount, because they only made 4700 of these, and I wanted a match for my existing one.

I bought my 2008 Harley Roadster for the same reason: it was the only year that model was made, and it had everything I wanted.

Yes, they are out there, some "deals" to be found too,,,and yes there are parts out there to "repair" ,or "fix" your old model,,,,just have to look or ask, 'Iowegan' ,myself and others can usually come up with some "needed" old model "parts",,,,,,,NO< the factory will NOT "repair " them ,mainly cause they do not make the parts, service stuff that is NO longer made, nor want the 'liability'...so do your homework. Shop Around.....ask......
Any of the "blue Books or Traders Guides are "reference" books m vary by locale, and hard to keep up with "market" trends, interests...yes auctions may have higher values at times but any and ALL the 'fee' kill any "deal" ( bargain)

OK - just got that 1963 SS home from the shop (was on layaway).

The serial # confirms the 1963 date, and it IS a convertible (7/32 drill bit dropped through barrel nicely, and it is marked ".22cal"), so I need to find an OM .22mag cylinder for it. It has the original factory wood grips.

It is NOT fully "original" - someone had Ruger install the transfer bar (so the hammer is slightly different as well) - but it still works nicely (I couldn't feel any "grittiness" or "roughness" in the trigger, hammer, or cylinder rotation).


Perhaps that is why it was so low-priced... not being in original condition.


Outside of the transfer bar/hammer, it looks & functions just like the completely original 1968 OM SS .22 convertible I have - it still has half-cock etc.
