CHRIS GUTIERREZ: What an amazing revolver, over built so it will last for a lifetime.
+++A classic Ruger+++
paul williams: Way useful vid.
I just picked up one for $300. Like new. Tight.
It's chambered for 38 only, but i found Buffalo Bore 158gr that produce
460-480 fp out of a 4" bbl. So .. .i think i can live with a 'mere' 38.
They're like a buck and a half a shot, but i'm not going to shoot boxes at
a time, It's plenty.
Like you pointed out, these things are built like bank vaults.
Some body said that there's a spring you can install that will drop the
double action pull without a lot of expense. It's a bit heavy. Also, Clark,
in La, will work it over for about $150... i'll probably break down and do
Anyway, you made a really helpful vid for 'Six' owners.
Thanks a lot!
John Roberts: You can actually take it apart with just a cartridge or case. Just use the
rim of the case to get the screw out of the grips or screw it back in. Who
George Clark: oh my just purchased a ruger gp100 3 inch and did order a kimber pro carry
hd 11 in 4 inch still on the ca list till end of year, lord I hate rugers
they keep making guns that I want and of course ca says you have to pay big
bucks to sell here we do not care that you will not sell here anymore we
want money and if you do not pay then we will double or triple fees for
those who do and if that does not work then we will multiply the fees for
law enforcement if that fails then well we will just ignore our obligation
to the people until they cone around to our way of thinking, liberals at
their best me I will never comply eliminate via the vote all liberals ps I
love shooting and will always buy quality just as my wife will never buy
anything but the best in shoes or clothing, she said I have enough guns, my
response was you have enough shoes, conversation ended years ago and she
has gained the upper hand I can store guns easy have to find space for
howard2374: I just acquired a Security Six less than two months ago. Your video on how
to disassemble with a dime (and I see also a cartridge case) was super
excellent! Clear, concise, and the camera angle you used enabled me (and
everyone else) to see exactly what you were doing. Thank you very much for
the video. Another question: your Security 6 is smoother than mine, and I
just installed a Wolff main spring (14 pound). What all did you do to
lighten the double action pull? I concur with your 'practice double action
[strong & weak side]' mantra. I replaced the main & rebound spring on my
S&W model 60 and that was a great help. However the 14 pound main spring
replacement on the Security 6 still leaves something to be desired.
RobertPaulDoran: Just found your reply in my "Inbox" today, 6/28/14. Stupid YouTube keeps
changing things around and then you never know when you have replies or
comments. The only reason I found it this time is because someone sent me a
video link to my "Inbox" and I clicked the link in my email which brought
me to my YouTube account "inbox." I could not tell you how to find my
"Inbox" if my life depended on it. Ridiculous.
vulpixgrant: Hey their Mixup98, I've been getting back into the Revolvers again after a
huge Shotgun kick and am still waiting to get a lever .357 like you have in
your other video.
What do you think of the GP100 vs the Security Six? I have owned a 6"
Blued GP-100 for over a year now and just picked up a very clean used 4"
model a week ago. Haven't had a chance to shoot the 4" yet.
Buying a 1979 one owner Security Six in October from a friend in Vegas for
$200.00. He wants to sell it to somebody that will take care of it and he
knows me ;) Can't want to compare the two side by side.
Scott Perron: Great video. You can also use the rim of a cartridge instead of a dime!
mixup98: The rifle is an 1886 Winchester rifle which I picked up in a pawn shop in
Wendover, Nevada and the revolver is a Colt 1873 Peacemaker I got off eBay.
Unfortunately the guns are not real but they look cool. Thanks for the
great comment and thanks for watching my video.
zimmy4661: Great informative video! I picked up a mint 4" SS Service Six a while back
and it has a slicker action than my 3.125" SP 101 that has had an action
job. Unfortunately it suffers from shooting "low and left" as does my early
3.75" Vaquero 45. For some reason I can shoot both my short and shorter SP
101 357's better than my 6.5" 3 screw Blackhawk. For that matter I shoot as
well with them as I do with my 1956 High Standard Supermatic 22 target
pistol complete with ported barrel and custom grips!
DobermansRock: I have shot the Six its a great revolver. Tough as a tank too. I own 2
GP-100's now and love em both. Just have to do a trigger job and switch out
a couple springs. Hands down for the money Ruger builds the best double
action revolvers. I own a S&W but it cannot handle the abuse my Rugers can.
Great video as always. This is good info for a new person to Rugers.
John M Mize: Well made video, thanks! I got my blue Security Six in '77 and have shot
hundreds and hundreds of 38s thru it for PPC matches. The double action is
sweet, and very accurate.
Michael Williams: Great vid.your going in my favorites
mixup98: Sheepdog......thanks for watching my video. I hope to do another video in
the spring on my Security Six. I'll do al lot more shooting and a lot less
talking. It's really a very accurate gun and it's fun to shoot. Stay tuned.
mixup98: HubbaWoo......I like your name. Thanks for the great comment and thanks for
UziNineMillomeetah: Great video! And of course it's about my favorite gun ever. I have both a
stainless heavy barrel SS and a blued tapered barrel model. Both are
workhorses. Rugers are the best.
mixup98: jffrocks....thanks for the nice comment. Hope you enjoy your Ruger.
7980flh: just today got a police service six made in 1980. your break down demo was
vandohky: Great job, liked the no-nonsense disassembly. I've fired a S&W model 29 .44
mag. What are those two fine guns hanging on the wall ?
jffrocks: I took my Ruger Security Six to the range last week for the first time. It
shot well except for the trigger mechanism jamming after several rounds
were fired. I learned that powder residue can collect behind the extractor
star and prevent it from seating properly. This in turn stops the cylinder
advance, hammer, and trigger. It is easy to clean this area while loading.
An old toothbrush is now in my range bag...
cromag7766: Great video, thanks for being informative, direct and keeping the pace
steady. If i may benefit from your experience a little further...i found a
SS Security Six online that suffers from oxidized sights due to poor
storage. I don't notice any carbon steel internals in your video and was
wondering if i am mistaken. Thank you.
mixup98: Personally I would have the gun reblued.....but it really is a personal
decision. Either way you have a good quality firearm that should last you
for many, many years. Maybe someday you can put a video on Youtube showing
you shooting it....I would love to see it.
mixup98: Robert...sounds like you got a great deal on your Ruger. I bought mine
brand new at Accuracy gun shop in East Las Vegas back in 1981 and I paid
full retail, which I believe was $260. You might try a Wolff spring kit to
lighten up the double action pull a little. I appreciate you watching and
commenting on my video.
the clean one: I just bought one in part due to finding your video the other day. 4" blued
serial # indicates it's from 1975. Thanks to your incredibly easy to follow
along video, I just got done cleaning it up, man it was filthy inside!
You're very right about how accurate these things are and how fun to shoot.
Thanks for putting this tutorial up, I really appreciate it and I
ty1760: any idea as to how many speed six's were made 9mm hard to find info on them
, alot of info on the 357's
Anonymousnonexistent: I like how that gun sounds, it sounds loud, scary and action like.
SAXON8ful: great job thanks
HUBBAHUBBAWOOWOOWOO: What U have in your hands is probably the most functional, durable, and
reasonably priced revolver ever made. Built to last a lifetime. It's the
one to have with you when the goin gets tough. I prefer tha Stainless Speed
Six with the fixed Sights. Toughest revolver ever made !
RobertPaulDoran: Bought a Security-Six in .357 3" blued from The Gun store in Las Vegas back
in 2005. The thing is spotless. Someone must've put it away and only shot
it once every couple years or so. Paid $175 for it. My only complaint it
the heavy double action trigger pull and the lack of a dot on the front
sight. Shooting at a dark background the front sight gets lost.
Mehmet Azk: An EXTREMELY BEAUTIFUL video! Thanks a lot, sir!
DobermansRock: I will look forward to that. Can't break these revolvers.
mixup98: DobermansRock....I have put thousands of magnum rounds thru my Ruger and it
is still tight and accurate. I love S&W revolvers but I save them for
lighter loads. I'm hoping to do another Security Six video this summer
where I shoot the gun a lot more than I did in this video.
mixup98: SAXON......you're welcome....and thanks for watching my video.
mixup98: I agree....it is the toughest revolver ever made. I'll be doing another
video on this gun very shortly and I'll do a lot less talking and a lot
more shooting. Stay tuned.
ken borgie: Security Six is built like a tank and cost about $200 new in the 80s, but
Ruger saw fit to replace it with the SP 101. A recent SP 101 .22 L.R. was
going for $650 at a gun show, but guns REALLY haven't gone up - the dollar
has just been murdered by the Fed. RES. and their easy money policy. Ruger
engineers sure designed that Sec. Six just wonderful - they must have known
that we would be as poor as a church-mouse with only one dime left to our
name. Isn't our government GREAT or WHAT?
mixup98: You are welcome, my friend.
mixup98: UziNine....you have two very fine guns. You are a lucky man. Thanks for the
sub and by the way, I like your name.......UziNineMillomeetah........cool.
Ray Vonn: Excellent video mixup98, job well done, keep 'em coming.
mixup98: Glad I could help with the break down of your new gun. Thanks for the
comment. Shoot straight and be safe.
mixup98: I would suggest that you install a Wolff spring kit in your gun and polish
the trigger, hammer, and the two pivet pins. You may also want to polish
the transfer bar, cylinder bolt and hammer spring strut. I did all this
many years ago and my Ruger has a very smooth and fairly light DA trigger
pull. Hope this helps. Thanks for a great question and thanks for watching.
zombie1attacks: Another great video man keep up the great quality and the the great
shooting my friend
jffrocks: Very interesting and timely. You clearly demonstrated how to field strip
the gun. The instruction manual was not clear. I just bought a 1982
Stainless Security Six today that was on consignment at a local gun shop.
It looks to be in great shape. I can't wait to put some rounds through it.
Unfortunately I'm in California so I have to wait 10 days before I can pick
it up. Thank You!
mixup98: Jeff.....sorry about the long delay, your comment was marked 'spam' for
some reason. You have a great gun and it should last another 100 years or
so. I'm glad my video was helpful and I really appreciate the great
comment. Thanks for watching and thanks for the sub.
mixup98: ty....the only information I have on the Speed Six 9mm is that Ruger made
the gun from 1980 to1985. I guessing they didn't make too many of them. I
will let you know if I find out any more info on the gun.
mixup98: ty1760....you did indeed get a good deal on your speed six. Let me know how
you like it after you shoot it. Thanks for watching and commenting on my
John Luna: Thanks for the info. Also, the bluing on it is a little faded, and I want
to make it look brand new again, would you recommend hard chroming it or
should just reblue it? Thanks again!
ty1760: Hi Deadwood i just picked up a winchester 12ga modle1911 S.L , last patent
date is 1912 this thing looks scary , the grip to caulk it is at end of
barell, I cudnt pass it up he gave it to me for installing his water
heater, he is in his 70's and all works great, clean gun just looks scarry
mixup98: You are very welcome, my friend.
mixup98: Thank you Ray......I have a butt-load of shooting videos planned for this
