Default Any .17hmr other than Taurus?

Recently added a Savage .17hmr to the collection and with my current fascination with revolvers I started thinking a revolver would be a nice addition. Any makers other than Taurus make one? The Taurus is just under $500 with the 6" barrel so something in this price range would be nice.

Ruger Single Six 17 HMR is one sweet revolver.

I'm not trying to be difficult here, to each there own and all that, but what is the desire for such a tiny caliber in a handgun?

Just caliber compatibility between your rifle and handgun? I get that. Otherwise I'd actually prefer the .22 LR or .22 WMR from a handgun. I'm not a .17 expert other than the bolt-action my brother-in-law owns but it seems like a very good rifle round if you know what I mean.

Caliber compatibility and I already have 4 .22 handguns. Don't own a .22wmr yet.

Makes sense. I like the Taurus revolvers myself but if I was going to shell out the money I haven't heard a single Ruger owner complain about the Single Six. Granted, they were all .22 LR owners though. Still, probably hard to go wrong.

Smith and Wesson model 647, it has a longer barrel and is $1299, but it's a beautiful gun.

Great looking gun but way out of what I'm willing to spend. The Ruger looks like a good option. If it's DA/SA I might have to track one down.

Sadlyis, it is really really expensive, which stinks because it is a really cool gun.

Go here and put in the caliber you want. I think this is a pretty comprehensive database.

Found a Ruger tonight at a local farm store for $369. The clerk told me that the price might be due to the gun being discontinued from the store. It has a different price ending than other guns in the case.

Didn't have the cash due to buying a Henry Varminter .17hmr earlier in the day. Maybe the Ruger will still be there next week. If not I guess it isn't meant to be.
