View Full Version : Ruby Revolver Safe to fire?

March 11, 2000, 12:40 PM
I own a Ruby Extra Revolver in .32 S&W Long.
I am aware that they were made in the '50s,
and were cheap S&W copies made in Spain.
I have fired around 300 rounds through it.I bought it in an unfired condition.

It seems to be holding up pretty good. I wanted to know how many rounds these revolvers can normally fire before they become dangerous.
I dont have access to a good gunsmith in India, and I cant bring the revolver to the U.S.A without going through a lot of redtape.
I was hoping that some of the TFL members would be able to help me.

Also what are the signs I should watch out for in case it is breaking up.
PS: I dont know if this post belongs here or in the 'Smithy' section.

Those Ruby revolvers are not bad, and should go thousands of rounds without problems. They are not of the quality of some other guns, but yours is not likely to "break up", especially with a low power cartridge like the .32 S&W Long.
