View Full Version : New ruger Old Army???

August 17, 2002, 10:47 PM
Hello, was poking around on the Ruger forum and notice an old post about the New Ruger OA with the 5.5 inch config.
Went to Davidsons and sure enuff they have a part number but no guns. "BP5"

Anyone here have anymore info on them, such as a time frame or are they out now?

I don't know exactly what the new Ruger old army is , but I saw a Ruger Old Army NIB at at gun shop last week. Unlike my Old Army, this one had a slot for rear sight like found on period cap and ball revolvers. I had never seen an Old Army like this before. Is this the new model? If it is, it is out there.

I picked up one the other day , no rear sight like the old model and doesn't shoot
as well, yet.
