    Ruby Extra was a Trade Name use by the Spanish firm of Gabilondo & Co., of Elgoeibar Spain. This was used on various revolvers manufactured in the 50's & 60's. These were patterned on the Smith & Wesson, double action, military and police revolver. The quality and workmanship of the Ruby revolvers weren't as good as the S & W's, and were less expensive therefore.

    thanks for that info, so i'm guessing it's not worth very much then?

    I don't know about in th U.K.? But in the States, depending on caliber and condition? Probably in the $100-$250 range.

    Here's a picture of a Ruby Extra with white plastic grips, it has a gold damaskend finish, which yours probably doesn't have. Similar revolvers to yours were imported and sold in the U.S. by the Stoeger Co. during the 50's and 60's. Even if its a excellent condition .22, it's doubtful that my previous estimate would be off much.
