4 1/2 inch or 5 1/2 inch Ruger Single 10?
 
I will be picking up a Ruger Single 10 this weekend. I will have my choice of the 5 1/2 inch barrel version or the distributor exclusive Lipsey's version with the 4 1/2 inch barrel.

So, which one would you prefer and why?

I'd go with the single six with the wmr cylinder personally.
But of the choices I'd probably go for the 4.5" for the potential value later on or the longer barrel for accuracy.

You really narrowed it down there. :p

Lol. It's a tough decision. Not up to me to make it. All I can do is offer what I would base the decision on.

Honestly, for me it comes down to looks and I think most SA guns look better with 5 1/2 inch barrels. That's what's on my Single-Ten and I'm looking for a .45 Blackhawk with another 5 1/2 inch barrel right now. ;)

Personally I prefer shorter (ish) barrels on revolvers, but I've never shot a single action so who knows? Maybe I'd shoot one with a longer barrel and really enjoy it.

If it were me, I would go for the long barrel. I have a 7 1/2 inch single six, and it is one of my favorite guns. I guess I don't know what the Single 10 guy looks like. I don't know why. Unless you are going to carry it in your pocket, I would go for the 10 incher.

Upon further review, which means I checked out the Single 10, I want one of those. They have awesome sights, and 10 shots. No convertable, but I don't use my WMR cylinder much anyway. That is an awesome gun. There is a gun show here on Saturday. I am there.

If I was doing it , it would be the 5.5 single six with the 22wmr conversion.

22lr comes out subsonic with short barrels not desirable unless your using a suppressor.

MY pref for center fire is the 4.75-4.5 barrels I think they balance better and are faster pointing.

I would go with the 4 1/2 in. barrel. If you are in a shoot out, there is less gun to clear from the holster so you can draw quicker! ;)
