    Very nice. Thank you for posting. I don't see a lot of the 2.75 security sixes around. I have a blued 4" myself but, I really like the short barrel for carry. Nice that you have a family connection to the pair as well.

    Me too! I've stopped carrying mine recently, & switched to this, as my daily carry wheel gun, in my carry set up. Bigger, yes, but it carry's very easily.

    @forester58 , Yes Sir. Redhawk, 2 3/4 ", .41 mag. Craft Holsters, which fits quite comfortably for me at 1:30.

    This is a pic of my S/S 1976 Bicentennial Police Service Six w/ 2 3/4" bbl. I love all the "Sixes". If I ever find a Speed Six that doesn't require a second mortgage it will be mine!

    I do, indeed, admire the all the wood grips...especially the OEM Ruger grips. HOWEVER, they are not the most comfortable nor do they enhance accuracy compared to the many nice rubber grips on the market. In order to improve my grip while keeping the beauty of the wood grips, I added Tyler T-grips. Big difference, positive change...pay no attention to the S&W Model 36...but T-grips worked wonders with it, too.Rolled a pair of sixes-p5240167.jpg

    Ahead of the Y2K event, I was back east and my shootin' friend shamed me into getting a .357. A great gun shop had a 6-inch Security Six (vintage 1978) in the case at a price we'd all love today, and it became mine. There was a chunk of yellow gunk in the bore so they even knocked a few bucks off the asking price - turned out to be wax (maybe the previous owner shot wax bullets?).

    The original grips were a bit punishing with .357 loads, so I went with the ugly but functional Hogues. With warmish .38 handloads the gun is a pussycat to shoot and more accurate then I am! I'd love to find another, with a shorter barrel. The gun seems nearly indestructible.

    That exact gun is on my wish list as I like a longer barrel for woods carry around here. A role my 5" GP handles now very well but, the balance of the sixes is just nicer. I will say that the heavy barrel on the GP combined with all that rubber over the grip stud does soak up a lot of recoil. The 180 Buffalo Bore and the 200 Littlestone loads I run are very controllable. I ran some of those through the speed six and they were just a tad warm although work in a pinch. Times when concealment is required while in bear country that's what will be in the short barrel.
