Hes off on his dates. Ruger didnt start the new models until after 1973. He said he bought it new in 1972, whoch would have made it a 3 screw ruger. And it is clearly not a 3 screw ruger.

I used to have a flattop 3 screw in .44 mag.

The small grip frame made it painful to shoot so i hocked it for a new model SBH.

Nope. It will take a real gunmen like DoubleD, Alpo, or Bennett to get it.
You are giving me entirely too much credit, I didnt know the answer.

Pronounces the holster wrong, too. As they used to say in the ads, it's Bee-Yankee.

The reason the frame is a different color is it is not the same stuff. Ruger casts their frames. Don't know if anyone else does that now, but for years and years nobody did. All frames were forged steel.

So Rugers have a cast steel frame, a forged steel barrel, a forged steel cylinder and an aluminum grip. Of course they are all different colors. Although the frame did start as blue, sometimes a Ruger frame will purple with age. This is considered desirable by Ruger collectors. All of 'em don't do it, for some reason.
