    Are you talking about a Ruger Mark II Express with quarter rib, or are you talking about a Ruger Hawkeye African?

    Bob, their has been at least one member that have been confusing the rifles. The OP is wanting a Ruger Express in 3006, Kycrawler is talking about a Hawkeye in 6.5 which I don't believe he knows the difference.

    This one was polished blue not matte had a 1/4 rib and no muzzle brake. Definitely was a mk 2 not a Hawkeye

    @Kycrawler. The Express rifles come in 2506 through .338 Win Mag calibers, but not the 6.5 Swede. The Hawkeye African doesn't have a brake or matte finish either, nor does it have a quarter rib.
    The top rifle is a Ruger Express. The second is a Ruger Hawkeye African 6.5x55....or Swede

    It does start to get confusing with models. The Express was a distinct model only made for a short period. It had a quarter rib but no muzzle brake. It sounds like the predecessor to the Hawkeye African.

    That said, the Hawkeye African does have a muzzle brake on all but the 6.5x55 according to their site and my experience since I own one in 375 Ruger.

    The Hawkeye African .275 Rigby, 6.5 x 55 and the 9.3 x 62 are all Lipsey guns, special builds for them. They were not part of the standard Hawkeye African group.

    The Ruger Express rifles have always been hard to find, especially the 2506. I have seen them go from $1000 (pretty beat up) up to $2000. I would suggest to the OP that if he doesn't live far from Tulsa, he go to the Tulsa gun show on November 9. He will most likely be able to find several there.....but at what price...???
