New Model Super Single -Six Convertible barrel length



Log in to see fewer ads
I've noticed there is mention of the above named Ruger having barrel lengths of
4 5/8, 5 1/2, 6 1/2, and 9 1/2.
Blue book shows a premium for the 4 5/8" model
The barrel on my Six from 1973 S/N 62-23xxx has a 4 3/4" barrel, measured from the front of the top strap to barrel end.

Is the correct way to measure the barrel length?

You have a 5 1/2" barrel. It is measured from where the barrel meets the front of the cylinder. It goes thru the front of the topstrap.

If I remember rightly, the barrel starts at the back-face of the forcing cone.

The best indicator is that the 4.6" barrel is flush with the ejector housing, and the 5.5" sticks out beyond.

Here's a 4.6" barrel for reference:



It is actually a Single-Seven, but the barrel length vs ejector housing is identical.

The barrel sticks out about 1/8" behind the top strap on the 5 1/2", 6 1/2'. and 9 1/2" . On the 4 5/8" it doesn't, as in the picture from SailDesign.

Had a stainless 6.5" model with a magnum cylinder; but I foolishly let it get away from me. I dearly mourn that wonderful .22. It was only exceeded in accuracy by my HS Victor and HB Target MKI.

Thanks, Hawkeye57.
My single-six is still a "premium" piece to me, it only has slight holster wear at the end of the barrel. Otherwise it is 95% plus. The magnum cylinder is still in the red bag.
