New Old Army
« on: January 17, 2014, 12:44:55 PM »
 Got a new yesterday, old friend stopped by the house and told me he had to buy three guns to get
the one he really wanted. Showed me this Ruger made in 1987. Shot very little. Came in box with
a Krist conversion cylinder for 45 Colt, don't know what I will do with that. Don't need it. So here is
my new toy to play with. I put the trigger shoe and trigger stop on it.

I suspect you'll enjoy its accuracy.  ])M

I bet if you try that conversion, you'll like it. My Dad and I have been hunting for a good ROA at a decent price for years now for that very purpose.

I have been keeping an eye on one just like that in a local shop, even has a 45 Colt conversion cylinder with it
if it is still there when I get some $$$ I may have to pick it up
smoke em if you got em

CR, if that gun is priced anywhere decently, better pick it up. Prices have been climbing since Ruger stopped production.
