NM SBH

I have a NM SBH with an fluted cylinder. Itís a Bisley grip frame with the 7.5Ē barrel. Iíve not seen this before, is it unusual ? Has someone fitted another cylinder to it ?

Thanks in advance.

Most Bisleys have a non-fluted cylinder but they are also available as distributor specials with a fluted cylinder.

First year production was released with a fluted cylinder also. 1985. Ruger had some problems with the roll-marking on the non-fluted cylinders.

I remember seeing fluted and non fluted in the mid 80s when I purchased my 45 and 41 bisleys.

Most, if not all, first year production caliber of Bisleys were fluted. 44, 41, 357, 32 and 22

The .22 was cool because it was a hybrid new model/old model.

I did make an attempt to own one of each. But they are few and far between. And expensive.

Thanks guys, lots of knowledge base here ! I went ahead and requested letters from Ruger today on the aforementioned SBH, as well as an OM SBH, and a NM BH in .45 Colt that I have. I don’t know what all the letters will tell me, but it will be interesting I’m sure.

I think the NM SBH in question will be off to Alan Harton for a little work very soon.
