The Ruger Old Army is a black powder percussion revolver introduced in 1972 by the Sturm Ruger company and manufactured through 2008. Models were made with a 7.5" and a 5.5 inch barrel.
This design was built around the Blackhawk, but it takes its styling cues from the Remington Model 1858 cap and ball pistol. This is due to the frame being longer in front to accommodate the loading lever and pivot pin. Earlier models listed as .44 caliber, later as .45, but all use a .457” round balls or .454” conical bullets of pure lead. The Old Army was made in blued steel and stainless steel. Originally fitted with adjustable sights, fixed-sight models were first offered in 1994.
Unlike the Blackhawk, the Old Army did not make use of Ruger's transfer bar safety; instead the revolver relied upon a series of safety notches between each chamber on the cylinder like some models of the remington/colt or other black powder revolvers of the mid-19th century had.
This Ruger is the 7.5" barrel in the Blue finish. Serial number puts this ist he 1979-1980 manufacturing years. The Wood grips are clean and the blued finish is in great shape with some minor handling marks.
