It's Spanish made by Llama,reviews arent the best.Used one sells for around $ 100 in the US.

Think they arent manufactured any more.

From the condition you describe,it seems to have been put to good use,but then in our parts anything

sells :wink:

The only good thing of the revolver is that it has a sexy name.....at 2L price tag and the condition u mention....simply don"t go near it.
Follow what Sanjay says ........and you would be thanking your stars that you did not follow the dealers advise.

:? just go ahead and buy the IOF .32 Mk II Revolver,rather than spend 3 to 4 times that amt on a used

piece.That is if at all you plan on buying a hand gun :wink:

Whatever happened to your rare Walther PPK that was put up for sale :?:

Saw another .32 4inche barrel Ruby box pack almost in new condiction,dealer is claming that it has done only 30 shots he is asking 1.80 L ,got really tempted as this looks exactly like S&W and offered him 1.20 .Ruby is not famous for revolvers ,please do post your views on this offer.cheers James...

You'd be better off spending your money on a brand new IOFB revolver... They really aren't that bad... and I'd rate a new IOFB piece higher than a used/ abused "no-name" imported one - which is what this sounds like... Besides it'll cost you less than 50% of the asking price you have posted above!!

Cheers!

I fully agree with Abhijeets views. An IOF revolver is thousand times better than this old silly, unknown stuff buttchered by so called gun smiths of our country. I still cant get over the fact why do we have this facination for this old imported junk.

I could have understood if itwas something worth while . I have been after a pair of M.L.Revolvers for the last few years and so have been a few dealers. I still havent succeded nor have those guys. But I am simply in love with the revolvers ever since I have seen it. I have offered the most fancy prices for it and I know the pair of revolvers I want to buy would never fire nor would they be of any use to anyone. If you have something llike that its fine to pay money but comparing a ruby and IOF just buy IOF ...

Sanjay is right - Ruby pistols were made by ( or possibly for ) Llama.
I can`t understand why people consider spending a pile of money on elderly Spanish handguns because most are decidedly poor quality. The only Spanish pistols worth buying are some Astras and a couple of the actual Llamas.
Spending c. £1760 on a Ruby is madness..........
The IOF revolver might have had decidedly mixed reviews from members of this forum but has to be a much better bet than investing in some cheapjack Spanish junk.
