Ruger just came out with the "Single Ten",and like it's name implies it holds ten rounds,although I don't think it's a convertible with a .22Mag cylinder included.I know I have seen a single action .22 somewhere that holds 12 rounds,but I don't remember what it was.

The ruger single six is pretty accurate, i got one with 22lr& mag cyl. The only thing i don't like about it is it takes forever to load and even longer to eject the spent cases. I'm not much of a single action guy.

A while ago I was also in the market for a .22 revolver, particularly the Ruger Single-Six Convertible. Now I'm no expert, so I did some unscholarly internet research, and came upon some controversy. There is a fraction of a difference in the bullet diameters of the .22 LR and the .22 WMR. There is, however, a world of difference in folks' opinions when it comes to the Convertible's accuracy. I was never able to sort out fact from fiction, but I reasoned that a Convertible must be making a barrel diameter sacrifice somewhere which might legitimately affect accuracy. In fact, I thought about it TOO much and ended up not buy ANY .22 revolver! I never wish to spread misinformation, so if someone can discredit my half-arsed research I would not only be grateful, but overjoyed, as I would still like a Single-Six! Either way Tack, I think my criteria in a revolver might be in line with yours: Rugged, reliable, and accurate. I'll be watching your thread to see what you decide on!

Along with what coldiron44 said^^ the 22lr cylinder will be less accurate than the 22mag cylinder in ANY convertible. But as far as convertibles go you cant go wrong with rugers single six. My grandpa had one for 15 years hitting squirrels out to 100 yards with the magnums

Tack drivers (as pistols go), reliable, and older used models can be had relatively cheap.

Just a thought.
I agree, they are tack drivers for .22 lr pistols but I understand Tacks thing a revolver is basically maint free. not as many moving parts to worry about and even if its filthy it will still fire and the Mark XX series run alot smoother when clean

That single 10 should fit the bill. I'll have to check out some real world pricing though. Don't think I'd pay north of $600 for a .22

I am thinking my collection NEEDS a .22lr Revolver and I've never owned one so I'm looking for suggestions.

I'd like it be full size and accurate, 6" to 8" barrel is ok.

I already own all the hi powered stuff like deer rifles, shotgungs, AR's, AK's, Ect,Ect.

My Zombie bag already consists of 2 Ruger 10-22's, 1 scoped and I'd like to Throw in a revolver of the same caliber. Like I said, squirrel at 30 yards accurate is a must, hi cap cylinders would be cool, quick change hi cap cylinders would be even better, and an option to load in a .22 Mag cylinder would be the cats meow.

Thanks,

Tack
Soo, could you regale us with the contents of this "bag"?

Are you going to carry it, or throw it in the back of your pickup?
