Ruger Security Six 4" SS

Recommended Posts

Anybody have one of these? What do you think is a decent price on one ? Looks to be excellent condition.

I had a blue 6” for a bit. Built like a tank! Trigger isn’t as good as a S&W Or a Colt, but it’s a far stronger action than the other two. It was very accurate. Price would probably be in the $400 to $500 range.

I have one and gave $500 for it.  Probably a little high, but SS 4" Security Sixes have a certain nostalgic value to me.  About 1982 or so, I was with my dad at a gun show and there was one new for $209.  I thought my dad had lost his mind for not immediately buying it, but this was before I had completely learned the value of a hard-earned dollar.  I never forgot that Security Six.  Fast forward to two years ago.  I'm in a gun shop in Paris (TN) and there the same gun sits (maybe not the exact same one).  I couldn't leave without it.  By the way, it's a shooter.

I've got a 4" blue and love it. The Security Six is an outstanding revolver. Perhaps not quite as refined as a S&W or Colt, but they're right up there close. Around $500 sounds right. 

I've been watching locally for years trying to buy a 2.75 inch version and if I was to stumble across a 6" for sale, I'd likely buy it. However you just don't see them for sale very often anymore. The folks that got 'em, tend to keep 'em. ;) I truly believe the biggest mistake Ruger ever made was discontinuing the Six Series revolvers.

I purchased one in SS and gave it to my granddaughter last year. Good guns. Paid 300.00, in a pawn shop, for mine 5 years ago.  The one I had was like new.

I have a less pretty one than yours. I bought it some years back as well.   Looks sort of like it was dropped several times. Scratched up and the adjustable sight has both rear corners almost knocked off they are so round.

But shoots well. And that's all that really matters.

YES - Ruger made a HUGE mistake when they stopped the Six Series.  I inherited a revolver exactly as the one above (with factory grips) that remains unfired.

Well, I bought it. Couldn't pass it up

I have found that these guys on here are more than willing to help spend money….when it isn’t theirs.

Security Six is a sweet revolver; I think you will be happy.

BTW…..Pics or it didn’t happen.

I have no problem spending my own money on here without anyone's help. Lol. I have to make a run toward Nashville to meet KahrMan and 221 Fireball in a week or two already. Hope your M1 and 66-2 are gone by then. Ha

I've had a 6" since '86. Use to shoot it a lot. Put over 1000 tds. through it in about 3 weeks years ago.

You'll be happy with that revolver. I don't have one, but I do keep my eye out.

Just in case you don't already know, Ruger will honor their warranty on the -Six revolvers but it's a credit towards a new one rather than repair.

I agree with the others who say 400-500 if mint/near mint condition. The security and speed six series is every bit the gun you'd expect from Rugers revolver line.

I had a SS security six years ago, best I remember it had larger wood grips than this one . Can't remember if it was a 4" or 6". I already have a GP100 4" and a Blackhawk 4 5/8" in SS 

I still have the Security Six owners manual at the house from the old one

      I wasn't planning on picking up a new gun "BUT" Walther just came out with the new Walther PPQ Q5 Match Steel Frame.  I sold my polymer PPQ and picked up the new steel frame.  It has been a long time since I really got excited about a new gun but I really like this gun.  It is a heavy gun at 2lbs 10oz with an empty magazine so it will be legal for SSP/ESP division in IDPA.  My main purpose for the gun is to shoot Carry Optics division and the weight limit is 45oz with an optic.  The optic I will use will be the C-more RTS2 6 MOA.  The gun does come with three mounting plates, not for the C-more.  Had to purchase one from C-more.  The grip is a little bit more aggressive than the polymer gun and I am very happy with that.  I hope to get out to the range soon and when I do I will do a range report.

      I just got an almost new Smith Wesson model cs9 in stainless steel and would like to buy a recoil guide for but I can't find any. I know the pistol was discontinued but surely there are some parts out there. Does anyone know of a good place to get old Smith parts? Thanks for your help.
