Pin held cylinder or swing open?? Knowing the cylinder is exchangeable, tells me it's probably pin held and that's one thing I want to get away from

I got this older Ruger Standard a couple of years ago for $175. There are some pretty good deals out there if you look around. And it is easy to shoot, load and unload.


My son gave me this Walther P22 that he bought off a guy at work for $100. Shoots good but VERY picky about ammo. Which is why the guy sold it, got tired of it jamming.


I probably wouldn't recommend the P22 but for $100 it's worth trying to find ammo it likes.

I would definitely recommend any of the Ruger semi autos. They all seem to shoot well.

Ok, let's talk about the these two, first of all, the Single Six is a single action firearm, meaning all the trigger does is release the hammer to fire the round. This western style gun loads by swinging the gate on the right side of the frame/trigger. On the Single Six, when the gate is open the cylinder rotates freely so you can load or (unload with the ejection rod that's under the barrel. Once the cylinder is fully loaded, close the gate, the gun is ready to be fired, cock the hammer back and press the trigger, then repeat.
How for the (swing out) . 99% of the time these are double action firearms, meaning the trigger can do the following, pulling the trigger back makes the cylinder rotate to the next chamber of the cylinder,,,,,,,, cocks the hammer back, and as all this (timing) comes into play, the trigger will then let the hammer fall and fire the round. You can also fire the double action just like a single action,,,,,,, all you have to do is cock the hammer by hand then pull the trigger. Your swing out cylinder can take all the rounds it can at one time, same goes for ejecting the spent rounds.
As an example, of firearms that will make you look twice at what type of action they are,,,,,,,,,,H & R made some of them that we're called top break,,,,,,they were double action style, but you loaded and unloaded them by picking up on the rear sights which was also the opening latch,,,,at that the top of the frame would open up, allowing you to get to the cylinder,,,,,,as you kept pushing down on the barrel,,,,opening it up further, the ejection rod would push out the rounds all at once.
H & R also made a western looking single/action, but in fact it was a double action, with a swing out cylinder. If I'm not mistaken that model was called Double Nine.
Hope this helps you out some more.

i have a Ruger standard that was made in 1955, even though the finish isn't that great anymore, it still shoots & functions like new. I paid $140 for it 2 years ago.

another option would be a used New England R92 revolver, they were 9 shot double actions with a swing out cylinder & copied from H&R designs. they came in snub nose, 4 inch, & 6 inch barrel lengths. I have the 6 inch heavy barrel & it is a tack driver, should be able to get one for around $200

I think the official model name was the 949, a friend's dad had one when I was a kid & i'm pretty sure it had a loading gate & ejection rod like a conventional single action & not a swing out cylinder.

Yes I think you are right,,,,,,,
It drove me crazy last night thinking about the H&R firearms that I had in the pass. I got to looking into some of my old records of arms that I owned long ago,,,,,,,,,I found it,,,,,I found it !!!!!!!!!! I did make a mistake,,,, the double action,swing out cylinder, 22/22mag that looks like a western single action,,,,,, it was the HIGH STANDARD model HIGH SIERRA. Now I can sleep better tonight!!!!!
