Had one years ago and got rid of it. Sorry I did. Well-made, fun to shoot, accurate, and with the option of .22 mag it is good to put meat on the table.

Have one, versatile if you plan to shoot 22mag. But buy a single 10 if you shoot 22lr only. 6 shots go fast and reloading takes a little time.

Plus one! I had one from 1969 till about 1990 or so. A six and half barrel model that like a d@mn fool i sold it. Both my sons still remind me about it to this day!
Mine was a great shooter with the .22lf cylinder and decent with the mag one.
Even had a real nice western style belt and holster for it.

Great plinker. Buy one a few years old. Ruger quality control sucks lately.

I had one about 15 years ago, but sold it a few years later.
About 4 months ago, I bought another one.
These are great little revolvers, I don't know why I ever sold my first one.

Mine's a 1964, bought off a friend for $60 including leather in 1973. Great little shooter.

I've got one and a Bisley model as well. I picked up some 8 round cylinders in both calibers from

They work great, just drop right in. It's faster to swap cylinders than it is to reload conventionally.

Two weeks later Ruger released the Single-Ten. FML.

I recently bought a 1972 old model, three screw, Single Six from another CalGunner. It came with just the magnum cylinder, but I was told it was the LR cylinder. First trip to the range, those 22LR's were tumbling and keyholing, and were not going where they were supposed to. I thought the barrel was leaded up. I cleaned it good and got the same results. Further research told me I was using the Magnum cylinder. I later picked up a 22 LR cyl, and it was a bit large, and after it was fitted, the gun is a real fun shooter with both Magnum and LR. Today was tin cans at approx 50 yds. I'm not a great shooter, and was able to hit the cans!

So, my recommendation is yes, by all means pick one up. If you can find an older 3 screw model that hasn't had the safety bar replaced by ruger, that would be an excellent find.

only one single six? not me, i have 3 plus a bearcat and a shopkeeper. all i picked up slowly used at good prices, except the first. at least one is essential. don't worry if you find a used one that is missing a cylinder, replacement ones by story, from midway, work very well.
