    When I bought my Ruger Single Six I was hesitant because I didn't especially like the looks of old western style revolvers,but many people online,including this forum said how good they are,so I chose function over appearance,and I am glad I did.I have put at least 3000-4000 rounds through it since February,and it has only ever misfired about twice,and that was the ammo I was using I think cause both misfires were Remington ammo.It is a fun gun and I have got to the point where I am almost as accurate at 50 yards as I am with my iron sight .22 rifle.I even put holes through setup milkjug caps at 25 yards.I like the LR cylinder better because of the handfuls of ammo I can plink with all day,but the magnum cylinder is cool too If I want to explode water jugs or something;).Buy a Single Six if you don't own one,you won't regret it.

    That's a great endorsement for a great revolver. I'm glad you like it so much.

    I'm inclined to agree.

    I got a 9" Heritage Arms Rough Rider convert for about $85.00. Fixed the hand, cylinder stop. After a rust removal session, gave it a "Krylon" finish. Shoots great with both cylinders, but I don't expect it to be as good as the Ruger.

    You cannot go wrong with a single six. It's a great 22 pistol.

    I like the gun so much that if I ever invest in a deer handgun,it's going to be the super blackhawk in .44 mag,the one that is almost identical to the single six,that way I can practice all year with the single six and then get a deer with the .44mag.

    You may want to practice with the .44, there is a difference.

    Ruger Single Six

    I love nearly all Ruger products. I have the Single Six in Stainless and it is so cool. Once you start shooting the .22mag you will grin like a kid with a new sling shot. I am really liking the .22mag cylinder. The .22LR cylinder is also good but the big bang of the .22mag just does it for me.

    I bought a 6.5" single six several years ago - loved it but a guy approached me that wanted it more than I did and paid a great price for it. Soon I realized that I didn't want to be without a single six so bought another , a 5.5". Love it. you can't beat the Ruger Single Six for a good, tough, well made SA .22. And loads of fun.

    Can't go wrong

    I got my first Super Single Six in '77 when I was 16. Took 2 yrs of convincing my Dad to let me. It was the 'new' transfer bar safety that finally changed his mind. It sports a 6.5" barrel and adjustable sights and cost me $92, the price I got for 2 fox pelts. I've taken bullfrogs, turtles, chipmunks, squirrels, rabbits, grouse, woodchucks, fox and coyotes with it. It has fired over 50,000 rounds and still works great. Since, I've added another with 5.5" barrel, just because. I'd buy another in a minute.

    Congrats on a great choice.

    The Old Days

    I remember back in the late 70's I bought, for the first time, a Single Six with a six inch barrel. I bought it for Coon hunting in Kansas. I paid $ 147.00 for it. When I went to college I sold it to my Uncle which would not sell it back to me when I graduated. But, WOW, what a shooter. Just a few years ago, I started thinking about that old gun I bought back then, and decided to buy another one. I haven't been sorry. It is just as straight a shooter as I once remembered. I recently took it hiking with me this last winter and it was a real joy to carry. The Ruger really makes a tough gun!

    My first and still favorite gun. Can't say anything bad about it. LR is great, but magnums are way more fun and accurate too.

    I have had it 4 months,and it has done nothing but get smoother the more I shoot it.I shoot almost exclusivly .22LR,but I like knowing I have the .22Mag cylinder and some magnums if I ever need to send my 9mm in for repairs or anything,that magnum's got my back for home defense.I was planning on taking it deer hunting as a backup until I found out that Michigan doesn't even allow a rimfire in the field during hunting season.
