My Convertible Single Sixes are older so they are screwed together and missing that "warning" engraved all over the barrel. Seems they were both made in 1961 before they advent of precisely fitted pins and before they "lawyered up".

Made in 2000 purchased in 2001, I noticed all my Rugers have the "S" on the "R" in the Eagle. But newer ones only have an "R", when did this happen? I did see something about they brought back the red eagle in honor of A. Sturm's passing anniversary.
I'm not sure when the "S" disappeared. My Single Six has the SR logo. I'm sure it must have been sometime after Bill Ruger passed away, because he was the one who turned the logo black in mourning after Sturm's passing. I'm sure there are plenty of Ruger historians on this site who can give the exact date of the logo change.

Well I suppose it's finally time for me to make a confession: When my Dad gave me my Single Six I was excited, but initially disappointed that it wasn't a semi-automatic (I didn't say it). I'm so ashamed to admit that I ever thought that! I fell in love with it at 1st shoot, of course. But as the years passed I became even more attached to the single action revolver & wouldn't have it any other way. Father knows best ...

Dad was a revolver man, he had one auto... a Ruger standard auto. So like father like son I went that route too. I have his standard now after he "tricked it out". It started live as a standard blue
