My older brother has a Ruger I bought about 1978 or so. The other month I put an old Millet red dot on it as he sees worse than me. After a small adjustment it put ten rounds into a standard 25 yard target, all in the ten ring from a supported position. Needless to say he's happy with the pistol.

Free sbrs for pistols for next 120 days. Tempting for the browning. Nasty atf over-reach and/or extortion too though I suppose. Hmmm...

It's not pristine. I had something to do with that when dad let me take it rabbit hunting with buddies in the desert. I carried it "commando", Oooff, shudder...dammit! I had no clue at that time what it was. :oops:
Still such a beautiful piece of history. Maybe better that is has a "mark or two". Now you can keep shooting it without worry of keeping it pristine. Damn its a nice looking pistol.
 
A couple of years ago I bought a Colt Peacemaker 22. Unfortunately the light wasn't so good at the FFL's and I didn't notice the grip frame had been painted! Once I got the paint off I found that most of the anodizing is gone. Also, this thing isn't reliable with 22 Magnum ammo... Proof House says it was made in 1972.
Not one of my better buys, but I'll hang onto it.
