A single six is on my "short list" of guns to buy, I just can never find one at a decent price, or at least what I consider a decent price for a .22
You done good.

So I purchased the 50th Anniversary Ruger Single Six .22LR/.22/Mag that posted about the other day.
I've never owned a single action revolver before. What a fun gun! It's got a great trigger and it's a real shooter. At 25' you can tear out the bullseye. At 50', even a guy like me (call me "Shakes") can post respectable groups.
The very tall front sight took a little getting used to and the Ruger manual didn't offer a sight picture suggestion, but if the top of the front sight is level with the rear notch, it's dead nuts at 25'.
The gun is clean as a whistle and should be a nice hand me down to the kids someday.
Now I need to pick up some .22 Mag., switch out the cylinder and see how she does with that.

When in doubt, just ask yourself, "What would Theodore Roosevelt do?"

I find I need a half turn down in elevation when switching to .22mag.
A single-six .22 was my very first handgun ever, to this day still my favorite just for the fun value! It served many years in the woods and swamps as my primary 'snake-charmer'. Must have put 'ump-teen' thousand rounds through it too.
A GREAT gun. Congrats!

Congrats. I've been eyeballing a .22 revolver for some time and that one is very high on the list. Thanks for the review!

There are a couple of guns that fall into the category of "everybody should own one"...........and a good single action .22 pistol is one!

You did great!
A Single-Six with 5-1/2" barrel was my first handgun, decades before the turn of the century. What a great weapon.
I sold it during dire financial straits, and miss it to this day. It's probably time I got another one.

first gun I ever owned - can't tell you how much fun I've had with it over the (many, many) years - excellent plinker
