    Isn't this old stag handled Ruger pretty?

    I don't really consider a gun made in 1969 "old" but it is an unmodified "old model". It came with rubber Pachs but I put beautiful sheep horn grips on it. Then my nephew gave me these stags. I never shot this gun with these gnarly stags but looking at where the real rough spots are on the right side, they might be OK for a left hander. Also pictured are the sheep grips. Unfortunately I only have one gun that both pairs fit. The sheep grips fit perfect. That's just the curve of the backstrap in the picture.

    That's nice! Those grips really bring it to life! Here's one that I bought in 1972 equipped with stags and micro sights. It is a convertible with the 22 mag cylinder. I think the out the door price was $65! I believe it was made in 1964 or thereabouts. I'm partial to aged stag grips also!

    Super Purdy. One of the best pair of barky stags I've ever seen.

    Even though S&W Model 10s and pre 10s like this are common and basic guns, I've always really liked this one. Some just stand out.

    That M&P dates 1954. It had goodyears on it when I bought it thirteen years ago. I had the stags on something else. The shop I bought it from said a woman brought it in and said her father carried it when he was a cop. I dont know where. I believe I have carried it trail riding with my ATV`s more than my other guns. It`s light and nice. Saves dusting up my more expensive stuff and fits my hand about the best. Thanks, Matt

    That gun just looks accurate. Great grips, too. My dad took me to a gun shop in 1972 and bought me a gun identical to yours (before you added the sights) but with only one cylinder. Since we're posting yellowed sambar stag that have moderate to lots of gnarly popcorn, here's a couple more. A pair of .45s from 1958 and 1931.
