Hoping someone has some info for me. Trying to find some production numbers for a KRBNV-44. Happens to be one of the models not listed in the RENE of estimated production quantities. Just trying to figure out if it is a buy now or buy later gun. Have some others I am looking at for purchase to add to my collection.
Thanks for any help.

You should be able to check the serial number on the Ruger Website for production date. It may be what is referred to as a clean up gun, Ruger had parts to build a few long after the production run. My 2 cents....

Already know when it was made. Not a clean up gun. More interested in how many were made.

I don't have any precise numbers but as Vaquero collector I can tell you I see them periodically. I wouldn't call them rare but they are slightly unique. Good clean examples can be found with a modest search. If the one you're looking at is in decent shape and reasonably priced I say go for it.

I am a Bisley collector myself. Blackhawk and Vaquero. Trying to find the low production and special production issues.
Staying away from the 1000+ issues.
It is great shape and would definitely look good in my collection.
