Default New to me Ruger Flatgate Single Six

Hey all, just got a hold of this old Flatgate, haven't had a chance to really go over it yet, she needs a good cleaning. Guy I bought it off of said it was a heck of an accurate shooter, but he hadn't had it out of his safe in nearly 5 years. So, it now belongs to me It certainly shows some wear, guy said his daughter dropped it once,cracked the handle, and marred some of the metal Hoping I didn't overpay too much for it at $250) Serial number is 317XX which puts is around '55-'56 maybe?

So, I'll just do a little clean up, replace the grips(keep these stored away), and consider it a nice little shooter, as it was designed to be.


Here's the pics, as I know you all love pics as much as I.

Nice flat gate,good deal at $250
they are getting harder to find and pricey (have 2) both 5 digit numbers.

still warranty the grips
I thought I had the OP covered as I too have a chipped set of the black grips.

Had to go look.....but my left grip is also the damaged one (figures)

There is a place that sells repop black Ruger grips

Thanks for checking, the girlfriend almost has me talked into mother of pearl grips, she was peaking over my shoulder when I was looking around. Her dad has a three screw convertible that she learned to shoot with.
