    A friend decided he wanted to sell his stepfather's old Security Six. I bought it.:D Gere are the pics and range report. Center target was double action at 10 yards. Bottom left target same distance but single action.

    Thanks, the double action on this Security Six is half that of the NRALC9. Equal to the LC9s I tried.:D

    Those old guns are really accurate. I wish I had kept one. Well, I do have a 2 3/4" Service Six. However the adjustable sights on the Security Six helps alot with a variety of bulllet weights.

    Seems like I read that the Security Six has the same firing assy design as the Redhawk.

    Sold both my Ruger Security Six and Ruger P89DC to even up trade for my brand new Ruger Bisley Vaquero single action back in 2005...

    Never looked back...

    Thanks, was done by the previous owner. It doesn't show in the picture, but it has little sparkles all through it. :cool:

    It is similar but there are a few key differences such as the trigger spring and cylinder stops and such.

    The Redhawk trigger assembly is more akin to the GP100 which of course is the "next generation" Security Six

    I always will have a special place in my heart for the Security Six.

    So accurate, so rugged, so reliable.

    I have had mine for close to 40 years now I believe and it is still well tight within specifications of cylinder play.

    I have had to replace the trigger and hammer springs.

    I hope that whomever I leave it to when the time comes can still enjoy it like I have.

    To me the Security Six compares to the GP200 like a WWII Jeep to a Hummer. Never understood the change. I can comfortably carry a Security Six all day but not so the GP100.

    A buddy of mine carried a gray/grey 1976 model Security Six.

    I had a stainless Service Six in my breakfront holster.

    It was my second Ruger revolver, the Redhawk .44 Magnum
    was my first.

    Right now I'm thinking of trading for a .45 ACP/>45 COLT
    REDHAWK, but know it would be too big and heavy for me
    to carry.

    I have this:

    and my CZs and PPS M2 for that.

    I've only owned one GP100 and that was a Wiley
    Clapp stainless .357 that was also a bit heavy to
    carry.

    The WC had the very best trigger I've ever encountered on
    a Ruger DA revolver.

    Should I buy the blued version this next year, I do hope that it
    has a beautiful trigger as well.


    Enjoy that vintage Sec6 and and buy a GP100 as a buddy.

    I once had a three inch GP100 that I really liked and shot great. I was an Arizona Ranger for three years, and was when I had the GP100. First couple of times carrying it on duty really made me miss the Security Six. I upgraded to a four inch Mod 57 S&W 41 mag. It was actually lighter, Winchester Silvertips were comfortable to shoot as well.:)

    Geeze the trigger is like the LC9s? That's darn good for DA revolver. You think it had a trigger job or you think that it is stock?
    Shooter13.......that Bisley must be awesome.

    At first glance I thought Armscor M200.

    I like it!

    I can see the similarity, but the grip angle and cylinder latch are definitely different.;)
