I always liked the Ruger Single Six. It is single action western style with change out cylinders for .22 LR and .22 magnum. Hunted many a squirrel with .22 LR. The mag. is good for game a bit bigger, and fun to shoot.

if you dont have a lot of money look at the heritage rough rider.They are good little bargain price guns. You can get into them for less than 200 bucks and start saving for a single six or move up to a smith and wesson K-22.

My 22 revolver is a Smith & Wesson Model 17. It's a 10 round with a 6" barrel. Generally, they are considered a Cadillac of 22 revolvers and they can be a little on the pricey side.

If you can't find the S&W, I would go look for a Ruger SP101 22. They are relatively new, and I haven't put my hands on one; but I do have a 357 SP101.

I have Heritage Rough Rider that has served me very well. Cimarron makes a sturdy little budget priced 22, the Plinkerton. Both are single action revolvers that are great for teaching new shooters proper gun handling techniques.

I've handled the 617 and the single six. Both nice but bought the ruger a few years back. Best 500$ I ever spent on a gun. Great shooter and goes boom every time. Best thing about it is the convertible model. Comes with a 22 mag cylinder as well. How can you go wrong with that? Very nice gun! Thousands upon thousands of rounds through it..... Goes boom every time with any ammo. This gun will be passed down to my son and future generations to come

I picked up a Ruger Single Six several months ago, it had a chipped grip panel and no magnum cylinder. Got it for $240 IIRC. Might have been a bit less, but it was a steal in my opinion.

I would say start perusing the pawn shops and gun stores and pick up the first one that you find for a fair price. I always will make an offer and let it marinate for awhile if the price is too much. Spend some time and you can usually get it cheaper, but you could also lose it too. Who cares who made it. If its what you are looking for then its the right gun.
