Gun Porn

This one is our new NIGHTHUNTER. It is based on your base Ruger® as normal, and can be in any of our hunting calibers. It is a pure working gun, for those that have asked for it. No frills, just solid basic hunting handgun.
The NIGHTHUNTER shown is in 429 GNR and has a 6 inch heavy duty barrel, a long, super strong 5 shot cylinder, all new internals, interchangeable blade system front sight with gold bead, set back trigger, Gunfighter Grip with satin black Micarta grips, full performance package that includes Maxi Throat, Deep Dish crown and action job. The entire gun is satin Vapor Honed with contrasting satin stainless parts. The new NIGHTHUNTER comes sighted in a ready to go. It is the normal $1395 on your base gun.


For those of you that aren't familiar with Gary Reeder Custom Guns, you've got to check his site.
Gary takes your base gun (the Ruger SA you send him) and rebuilds it to an outrageous piece of machinery.
From what I've heard, he replaces damned near everything to the point that the only original part of your handgun is the part that has the serial number on it.
All of the prices I've seen are between $1100 and $1400 (you supply the base gun) with only a 3-4 month turnaround.
What is really outstanding about this artist is that recently he's reduced his prices due to the faltering economy. How many other custom smiths have you heard of doing that?
For more examples of his work go to:

My dream gun is the one above in 41 GNR shooting a 265 grain bulet at 1800 fps. Maybe someday.......

For some reason I could see you going for the Coyote Classic, driving down the road with one hand on the wheel in the old truck and shooting out the window with the other...
That is some nice hardware he's got there, but I'd hate to give up my Super Blackhawk .44 mag... I'm kind of fond of it...

Never heard of a "429 GNR", so I looked up his website.
Man, that guy sure can make some weird looking 1911's!

I'm thinking that a 429 GNR is a hopped up 44 magnum like the 41 GNR is to a 41 magnum.
Believe it or not, I never have gotten further than his Single Actions.

TJ - I feel the same way about my Ruger Blackhawk in 41 magnum. Lotsa memories in that gun. I would have to buy a whole new Ruger for the conversion.
