My kind of crop circle....
Purchase Order for the stampings of the original Ruger Hand Drill, which became the frame of the Ruger Pistol. This was before Sturm, Ruger and Co. was formed in 1949 (PO from 1946). Note the words "Ruger Automatic Pistols" under the Ruger Corporation Name.
perhaps order "Z-100" was for the prototype stampings? I understand many of these were returned when the company folded, the question is, how many were used to put prototype pistols together?
