    Hey guys,
    I was offered a Ruger Speed Six today. Ive known the seller of the gun my whole life and hes a good friend of my family. He got it from someone else. All he knew about the gun is that it was made in the early 80s and that the gun was given to some law officer in lousiana. It has the name of the man it was given to inscribed on the back of the grip. He wants $500.00 for it. He said hes put 50 rounds through it, and it was unfired when he got it. What do yall think, good buy?

    Blued or stainless?
    2.75 ' or 4"?
    Sounds about $150 high to me since it has been engraved and you do not mention an original box.
    Hope this helps.

    $500 is too much, probably $100 or more high.
