Finally found a decent used Single Six. Got a few small dings but overall pretty nice. One thing about loading those little .22s after shooting a .45 though. I have a heckuva time guiding those little boogers into those little bitty chamber holes.[:(

They sure are fun guns to shoot though! And a whole lot cheaper than the .45s!

After a while and some practice, we have NO problem getting the shells in or out of the cylinders, and NO , most of the time we don't even 'LOOK' at it while we do it, just "do it".

I've got a 5 1/2" convertible Single Six that I purchased about 1980. It is an excellent revolver. I really have never put many mags through it, but it performs very well with both.

Stick with it - you'll get used to it and love it.

Very Nice. My father has one and I pretty much grew up shooting the thing.
If I was to purchase a single six, it would be this model.

Mine is an older single-six, 3-screw with fixed sights, and I'm really fond of it.

When I'm out of "the big city" it's always in the truck...and it sure gets shot a lot.

And...you'll quickly adapt to the loading...

Your's looks to be in pretty nice shape. Try the mag cylinder, too...it's a neat round as well. Congrats on a good purchase!

I don't go to gun shows anymore and at the gun shops I go to you never see a 3 screw or old model Ruger. Collectors got 'em all.[V]

This is my Stainless Single Six Convertable. It's a nice all around fun gun. I really like the single action in a rimfire because it gives you something to do between cylinder fulls. :D Bill T.

I have had my super single six since 1972. It has a bit of bluing missing on the barrel. But it still shoots as good as the day I got it. It was a high school graduation gift from my folks.:)

Owned two single sixes at different times back in late 70's and early 80's.That time frame is a little fuzzy to remember. Kinda explains why I don't have those single sixes anymore. Hope to get and KEEP another one soon. Great pistols! Mongo.

Nice fun guns to shoot for little money. With fat fingers like mine I have to retrain myself everytime I take her out. There is some difference between loading those 22's versus the 45 I usually shoot. I've been known to have more of those little shells on the ground than on the bench. The mag is fun to shoot too and makes more noise. I guess it's a guy thing. Here's a pic of mine since we are sharing visual images.

I got my first SS in 1989. Me and my brother have put 20,000+ rounds through it, and it's still mechanically perfect.
