Yep, that’s the stamp! Photos will come as soon as she gets out of waiting period jail🤬!
I have heard that a number of these went to Australian pd’s and then ended up coming back here. I would think if that were the case then there would have to be some sort of import marks. Nothing on this one but N.P.D. so probably not one of them. I will probably pop for the $10 spot and get what info I can via your suggestion. Thank you for that! Maybe I’ll try to track down “Drawstring” to see if he ever found anything.
Appreciate the help.
You can download a form from Ruger to get your gun "lettered" for $10. Search "Ruger letter of authenticity" download the PFD form & print it, fill it out and mail with $10. You give them the serial number and they will tell you the date of mfg. and where it was shipped and when. EDIT: Here' one I requested...I did a search and found a post on this forum from 2011 from a user named "Drawstring" doing an identical search on an identical Service Six marked N.P.D. He contacted Ruger and they couldn't tell him what it stood for. Could even be your gun? View attachment 171547

Almost forgot. I do have a trade in security six I got off Buds a year ago. Came with no grips, plenty of grime and fouling, plus scratches. Polished up nicely and fitted with a custom grip now. Came from a police trade in from Queensland, Australia. Still a deal for a 4" stainless 357 at $400 with free delivery. I should have bought 2.
Does this one have import marks?
