Mine has fixed sights and I've enjoyed shooting it very much. It ain't top o' the line but it's good iron for the money.
I also recommend the Heritage Rough Rider. I have one and it's an accurate and good shooting gun.

I'm going to come down in the Ruger Single Six Convertable camp. That gives you the option to use 22 WMRF. Also Ruger still makes (or is making it again) the Bearcat which I always thought was kinda cool. One of those is on my want list but I don't think it comes with adjustable sights.

The robber baron's cruelty may sometimes sleep, his cupidity may at some point be satiated; but those who torment us for our own good will torment us without end for they do so with the approval of their own conscience."

SH is just hoping everybody buys Rugers so the price will drop a little.

I like my Rugers too,
but did you know Uberti makes a 12 shot SA revolver?


Yeah I ordered one last Jan, havent seen it yet.

My wife wants the Stainless model.....Our Range shop has one for $629 but because we are "members" they will come down some,..prob. to $600...
Also held the American Rimfire Sunday(they have 2,..1 ea. in 22LR & 22Mag.)..and I must say I'm impressed....and at Well under $400....

Buy the ruger single six or single ten and have a handgun to pass to your children or grand children one day.

Forget heritage arms if you shoot it long enough it is going to brake. Buddy back in florida had one break the frame from the stress over the few years he had it.

Exactly, to the Ruger Single six convertable gun. I have a 1957 version, (not convertable) three screw. They sent me a letter to send it in and have it converted to the new model. Instead, I kept it, and bought a stainless convertable .22 and .22 WRM. That is one awesome gun. I have been shooting it for over 30 years, without any trouble, and it is very accurate.
Correct on the Bearcat not having adjustable sights.

I just picked up the Ruger Single Ten a couple of weeks ago. I already own a Ruger Mark III 22/45 and a Buckmark as well as a Taurus .22 revolver.

The Ruger Single Ten beats them all. It is one of the nicest shooting .22 handgun I have ever owned.

Quality and workmanship is top notch...

Too bad the Rugers don't have adjustable sights. I'll take the old 3 screw single six all day long. I've had this 1958 for better than 40 years. Great guns. Good luck on your search. Regards Dick

Wow, that gun is in excellent shape. My 1958 gun is well worn. But it still shoots straight.
