Stopped into what has become my LGS with the closing of Skip's which was just a mile away. The new place is decent but smaller. I've plucked a couple of Smiths out of there until he caught up with the market. I was looking at the Wranglers when my eye wandered over a bit and found two Single Six's. A 200 year model with both cylinders and this one, which was just calling my name.

This thing looks like it's been around the world a time and a half but I'm very happy to have a Single Six back in the safe. Im not gonna worry about having this in the truck all the time.

Congrats on your find. I inherited a Single Six. I have the opposite problem. Mine is almost as it was when grandfather bought it In the late ‘60s or early ‘70s. He had a brick of ammo with it with only one box open, and an unopened box of .22 WMR cartridges. Magnum cylinder still in its box.

I have run about a hundred rounds through it. But I almost hurt inside when I shoot it.

Looks just like mine.

Came across an ad for a Ruger .22 cowboy gun.
Contacted the guy and set up to meet.
I get there and he has a well used Single Six, with both cylinders, and without the transfer bar

I handed him the $$$$, didn't bother to try haggling. He was shocked and said he had expected me to offer less. I told him, " it was what i wanted, at the price I wanted. I thought about offering less, but decided not to. "

A week later, I came across New Model, practically NIB and at an almost too good to be true price. Contacted him and had gun in hand within the hour.
