Plum & Stag Ruger Ranger Six

Ruger Model Single-Six revolvers are the perfect small bore single-action revolver for plinking, small game hunting or serious competition. Chambered in 22 Cal. This particular Single Six Features Stag grips, the traditional vintage “3 Screw” set, and Rare Traditional Plum Bluing. Bluing is a passivation process in which steel is partially protected against rust, and is named after the blue-black appearance of the resulting protective finish.Blueing salts are formulated to be applied to most grades of steel with good results. Steel (an alloy of Iron and Carbon) compositions with higher amounts of Nickle may or may not take on a full ‘blue’. In most cases, steel alloys with a very high Ni content will come out of the bluing tank with a plum color that can’t be darkened. Steel alloys with less Ni content may, at first, take on a full blue but not be able to retain the blue during use. Plum bluing is favoured on Ruger Single Sixes of this age as so few gunsmiths do this process anymore when blueing. The Single-Six was first released in June 1953 & was featured movies like The Texas Chainsaw Massacre, Dawn of the Dead, & recently Mad Max: Fury Road.
