Second one this year. First one was older and in better condition. This one was made in 1970. A few nicks and scratches, but mechanically solid. When a dealer gets one of these pre-transfer bar safety guns in, they are supposed to send them back to Ruger to have them converted. My dealer had me sign a statement that I was knew about the recall, but absolved him of any liability. So this one was rescued from that fate. Only $400.

Awesome...glad you decided not to go the transfer bar safety route.

A fine revolver like that should stay original...

I sure wasn't aware that dealers were sending OMs back to get converted these days!!
I have an old three screw BH in .41 mag that I purchased used in '72 and will not part with it for anything.IMHO, there is nothing like the "clickety- clock" sound the OM action makes. I guess if I want that un modified SBH I've always wanted, I'd better get busy!!

Keep 'em original!!!

Great move, and a nice looking gun. I have a 22 single six made in the 50s. When they went over to the transfer bar, they sent me a letter saying send it in and they would change it over for free. Instead I just went out and bought another new single six with the transfer bar.
I agree, leave them original. I did not know dealers were required to send them back.
