I imagine there are some Ruger Maximum fans on here. Just acquired my second! First one I got is number 440, a 7 1/2". I wanted one with box and paperwork, so I just found number 2999, another 7 1/2". Cant wait for it to come in!

I found one in a local pawn and Gun, some years ago. 10 1/2" with box and shipper. Appears to not even to have been test fired. Shop had it listed as a 357 Magnum. I haven't shot it. Ruger made 16,000, sold 11,000 and destroyed the rest. They felt the flame cutting of the top strap was a liability. If you send it back to Ruger they keep it and offer any gun they make to replace it. It is the only revolver they made that has a cylinder long enough to chamber .445 or .454. Silhouette shooters are wont to bore them out. Less 357 Max every year.

Wow, can Ruger legally take/keep your firearm?!!!  I mean, that seems wrong to me.

I have Coog's number.  We chat here and there and I try to keep him informed with maximum stuff I come across. He's the king of Ruger Maximums, super smart guy in them!

Here's some pics of the two I have. One is polished by JD Jones for president of TCA (Thompson/Center Collectors Association).  The other is unfired, original condition. 20220501_081007.jpgImage Enlarger
