The Ruger Security-Six is the result of imaginative designing and modern production techniques, a handsome, rugged holster revolver-compact in the overall, yet massive enough to properly be designated as a heavy duty revolver for the rigors of police and military service. The Security Six is a solid-frame double-action revolver with side-swing cylinder and simultaneous ejection. Trim, compact, and strong, this six-shot revolver weighs 33 ounces unloaded and measures 9-1/4" long overall. Among several desirable features of the Security-Six is that it can be disassembled easily for cleaning and lubrication without use of special tools. Unlike most other handguns, the frame, crane, hammer, trigger, trigger guard, and several smaller parts of the Security-Six are produced from chrome-molybdenum steel investment castings. The barrel is a machined forging and the cylinder, which rotates to the left, is machined from bar stock. All springs are of a durable coil type and the frame is not fitted with a sideplate, a change which adds strength. This revolver has been reblued and features a ramped front sight with an adjustable rear sight and rubber grips. Its grips, metal, and bore are all in good condition.
