The Single Six is a great handgun that just keeps going strong. I personally prefer the older pre transfer bar examples, but the new ones continue to sell well.

I have a Ruger single six, new model, I just love it. I shoot it often, and for a long time. I love shooting the magnums. But until this weekend they were kinda spendy. I found a 1000 rounds of wmr, at a gun show, for $189.95. Now I have some to shoot. The mags shoot with much improved accuracy. They have a bit of a kick, and are louder, as expected. Great round for the single six though.

Everyone should have a single six. Buy it and don't look back. Mine was my first gun purchase. I dont shoot it a lot, but i would never sell it. It's a classic and will never go out of style.

I have one I picked up just this summer. It is missing the WMR cylinder and I don't have the money to get a new one fitted (you have to send it in to Ruger to have it fitted, they are not interchangeable between guns). The WMR is a slightly larger diameter bullet, so the WMR is going to be a bit more accurate as the Single Six is bored for the WMR. That having been said I have always wanted one and now that I have it I will never let it go. Damned nice gun. I did have a bit of leading built up in it but once I got that cleaned out it shoots like a dream, plenty accurate close in.

I have heard that there are bullet swagers available that will swage the 22LR rounds a bit larger so they fit the bore more tightly and therefore more accurate. Don't have one though.

And while we're at it, don't forget the SSix's lil brother the Bearcat. I've got both and love shooting them.

If you want 9 shots, the other option is the H&R Sportsman, which you can find all over the place...
no longer in production, as H&R stopped making pistols due to Connecticut taxes on 'em years ago...

Hopefully with the move to North Carolina, H&R-1871 will again produce pistols

Another option are the High Standard Sentinel Line...made since the 1930's,
there are tons of them floating around also...

I recently bought a Single-Ten after deciding that for my uses (target and plinking) I just didn't need the WMR capability. AFAIK, its the same gun w/o the extra cylinder.

I love the gun, its loads of fun to shoot and cheap to feed. I think the extra four shots per loading is nice to have, too. Its also got a set of fiber optic sights, which I was initially unsure of but I now love them.
