I am thinking of getting a single six in 5 1/2" barrel and putting a scope on it. I was wondering how much fun do you guys really have with your single action revolvers?? I'm not sure if the 22lr in only SIX shots is going to be any fun. How do you all feel about this pistol???

I have fun shooting a six shooter in .45 colt with reloads. Wouldn't have as much fun if I had to pay for factory loads. A .22 is fairly inexpensive to shoot, you can buy bulk pack of 525 rounds for around 10 dollars. If you buy the convertible you can also shoot the mags for about the same price as 9mms.

Got mine in "76. Has the "liberty" mark on it. Always fun but I prefer a scope on a semi-auto for bullseye shooting.

John H. Fox, that must be some kind of sentennial model. Is that a .22 semt-auto you have the scope on? I recently bought a Henry lever in .22 LR and was thinking about scoping it. Having trouble seeing both sights at the same time, did you have the same problem and did the scope help out?

i would like to get a 22 pistol and put a laser site on it. i really like the looks of the single six, but i also question if it would be a hassle to keep reloading it one shell at a time after only six shots. with my s&w 686 its no big deal because it a double action and its a 357 so i dont shoot that many rounds thru it while at the range. i think im going to look for a 22 auto. let us know what you decide.

I think Lasergrips makes for a Ruger Mark II-yep-went and checked it out-made for the Mark II and III-lasergrips are not cheap but they do do what they do do well!

The .22 Single Six is a very fun gun. To put a scope on it is just wrong (unless you buy the hunter model.) JMHO.

It's a bicentennial model and has inscribed "made in the 200th year of American liberty". I have several Rugers made in '76.
A red dot cures many ills.
