the other day a buddy gave me a box with some with some miscellaneous parts and one of the parts was a ruger SA frame marked XRN-3RED anyway my questions are.

1 should the frame be threaded? the top two screw holes appear to have been threaded.

2 any way to tell how old the frame is or what model it was from?

3 is it worth anything? seems like it's in great condition.


thanks.

Mike T, The XRN3-RED frame has been used since the New Model was released in 1973 and is still used on most current production models. It will fit a Single-Six, Blackhawk, or Super Blackhawk. These frames are in demand by Ruger SA owners that bought guns with the internal lock so they can convert to a "non-lock" grip frame.

1. No threads ... just holes for the 5 mounting screws ... one up front, two behind the trigger, and two on top.
2. Not really because it has been in production for a long time.
3. In "like new" condition, $50 would be an average value.
