Box, Paperwork & Accessories: These revolvers come in their original Ruger black plastic boxes with an extra .40 S&W cylinder, cable lock marked “Ruger”, plastic cylinder ring and paperwork. The boxes are marked “Ruger” and “Special Edition”. Both have end panels correctly identifying the model, catalog number, caliber and serial number of the revolver.

The paperwork consists of an Owner’s Manual, a Davidson’s Warranty Card and a sealed envelope with a fired cartridge case which indicates the serial number of the revolver, date fired and signature of the inspector. The paperwork is all in Excellent Condition.
Our Assessment: If you are into Cowboy Action Shooting and like shooting antique cartridges, these almost new revolvers with consecutive serial numbers are for you! They are in beautiful condition in stainless steel which makes them easy to clean and look good. You can change cylinders and also shoot.40 S&W. The New Model Vaqueros aren’t made in this caliber, so if you want something other than .38’s or .45’s, you better snap these up fast.
