Re: ruger single six, 3 screw conversion?
I don't know your son, but if it were mine I would run down any collectable value, and unless it is something rare I would have the conversion done. My sons (25 and 30) are likely to handle it well, but I don't know how their kids (not here yet) wold do, and I wouldn't want to take the chance.
