    Well, this is why I posted this. If seller doesn't know what he has, then he probably doesn't know if it's been butchered.

    Seller emailed me back and thanked me for correcting him. He said the dealer told him it was a flat top.

    Flatop 3 screw






    Still a 3 screw but not a flatop this one looks like mine from early 70's



    They quit production in 1973

    Mine has not been sent to Ruger for the transfer plate butcher job.
    I agree.
    Worth the money.
    Still curious about the grip frame, though.

    The Flat Top's were Colt SAA size frame and cylinder.
    That didn't work too well with the 44 magnum, so they increased the size of the frame and cylinder. Today these are known as Old Model, although that is not an official Ruger term.
    In 1974, when the transfer bar came out, due to US government and their ridiculous Drop Tests, Ruger did name them New Model. The frame and cylinder remained the same larger size.

    I found my 1959 Flat Top w/6.5" barrel, 357 magnum, in a small town pawn shop for $300. I damn near broke my wrist I pulled my wallet out so fast.
