I just acquired a Ruger Old Army at a gun show fo what I think was a good price, $300. The bore is excellent, It has replacement Walnut grips and a replacement rear sight with a narrower notch. The box, manual and original grips and sight were included. I just needed to order a nipple wrench. I have a couple of questions that maybe someone can answer;

1 I know they haven't made these in a couple of years so it is not new. The serial number is 140-156xx. Can anyone give me an estimate of when it was made?

2 On the front face of the cylinder there is what looks like a tiny "S" and a script lower case "g" electro-pencilled. Anyone have any suggestions what they could mean? I guess one of them could mean "don't load this cylinder", but it is hard to figure out which one they are referring to.

Thanks

For a nipple wrench I have a 3/16" deep drive socket wrench that I use.
Works great with the factory nipples.
If you change the nipples out to Treso or SlixShot nipples you will need to use another type of wrench.
