    Cool WTB/ Ruger Old Army Revolver

    Hello Brothers and Sisters,.
    I'm Looking for a Ruger Old Army Black Powder Revolver in 45 Caliber and Blued would be my First Choice.
    Must be in Like New Condition. Of course with these Beauty's getting so Difficult to find I'm opened to Stainless.

    If you have one for sale or you know a Local shop that has them any help would be greatly appreciated because this will be a Gift for a Family Member.. Thank you very much for your time.....Bill

    Ruger Old Armies only came in one caliber. They all take a .457" round ball or a .454 conical. Blue or SS with adjustable or fixed sights.

    Interesting fit and finish on the "brass frame" ones. What was the serial number range for the "brass frame" ones (start & ending)? Prices sure do vary a lot!

    Ruger ever made a brass frame. What are you talking about?

    If you go with the ROA, stainless is a better choice, all around. The blued versions only come with a front site that is not pinned. While the stainless one is pinned, thus easier to change out. If you choose to shoot the heavier conicals, a higher front sight is mandatory, and is a simple fix for the SS version. The other advantage is the corrosion resistance.
