    When did Rugers become collectible? Just kidding! Anything can become collectible...even Rugers. Full disclosure...I own several.

    Well about 30 years ago for me

    I have 20 plus RED EAGLE pistols in my collection....

    one each of the ten variances Ruger collectors agree on ......

    Plus one in each of the 3 serial ranges the MKI is found in.....

    Then I have that annoying need for numbers thing and so I have one 2 digit gun and one in each of the first 01xx to 06xx... WBR skipped from 0660 to 2000 to make the big guys believe he was selling them like hot cakes....well he actually was....I can't even guess how many millions they have sold .....ya I collect the autos too...RR

    And it is the 70TH ANNIVERSARY this year.....1949-2019.....now the biggest gun manufacturer in the USA....

    Got this one for my 16th birthday from dear ol' Dad in 1976. It was used , but I didn't care. Had a lot of fun with it. Probably burned a brick of 500 per weekend for the few years. It went back to Ruger about 20yrs ago for a new ejector , and they refinished/reblued the whole thing free of charge. Came back with a set of new black plastic grips and new sights too. Swapped the plastic for these checkered walnuts.

    When the quality went downhill.

    I have Ruger revolvers from the 50's to the 2000's , and they shift in quality of fit and finish is obvious.
