Yes, but not from a collector or appreciation per dollar view, although I bought Rugers when I could have bought Colts for the seemingly better bang for the buck we had with our non-forecasting blinders on at the time.IIRC, in the mid-1970s, a Colt Trooper .357 mag. revolver cost around $139.99, while a Ruger Security Six .357 mag. revolver cost about $99.99. Today, I wish I had bought the Colt, but at the time I did not have the additional $40, so I bought the Ruger. Back then, the $40 difference was a big deal; not so much today. The Ruger has done everything that I asked it to do, so in hindsight, the Ruger was the right choice.
