Stumbled Upon a Nice Single-Ten



Log in to see fewer ads
I was planning to purchase a SS Bisley, but this nice Single-Ten came about at a very good price. The S-Ten was second on my list, but as happenstance usually occurs, another path came about. I will pick it up today if all goes to plan. The PO said he fired about 100 rounds through it, then decided he didn't like single action revolvers. Yay for me!

Good for you! Always nice to stumble across something you wanted to buy, in excellent condition, with all the original box, papers, lock, etc. I have one too, bought several years ago. Fits my hand nicely, looks great, and I like the sights. The ejector rod timing is a bit tricky, but you soon get the hang of lining it up. I expected it to line up with the "click" but it doesn't. Since it was my first Single anything, perhaps I just assumed it would.

But it shoots well. Enjoy yours.

Congrats ! I own a Single Nine the 22 magnum equivalent and love it .
Ruger Single action cylinders do not automatically line up with a click , that keeps the cylinder from getting a ring around it . I donít have a problem lining up the cylinder when unloading or loading .
I almost ordered a Single Ten last night , but went with a blued Single Six 4 5/8Ē with adjustable sights . This will be my first blued SS . I picked it over a Single Ten for the Magnum cylinder. I already own a couple of Bisleys that are dedicated 22lr . Have fun , nothing more relaxing shooting than a Single action revolver. Kirby

Hi. I just picked up for the seller. It looks even better in person. Hope to get it out to the range this weekend.

I think it was built in 2016. Funny thing, the Ruger website serial numbers stop at the year 2015.

I got it cleaned up and lubricated. I may have to put a Wolff spring kit in it, the hammer spring is very heavy.

There are a lot of Wolff spring kits to choose from. Which one do you guys recommend?

I put Wolff springs in mine; 40oz trigger and 16# hammer. Way better than stock.

I bought the 14#, 15# and 16# hammer spring kit...and put the 16# in to make sure it wouldn't have problems with light strikes; not a single FTF in 500 rounds. I would drop to the 14# spring to do the same, but I'm happy with it as is.

I also bought a 30oz trigger spring, and haven't put it in for the same reason.

I couldnít use my Single-Ten until this weekend. I took it twice to the range and fired nearly 300 rounds through it. Itís nicely assembled and finished, no issues in that regard. Accuracy looks to be pretty good. Was using PMC Moderators, CCI SV and some Federal Automatch. CCI SV clearly patterned the best.

The hammer action is heavy and feels gritty. The trigger is smooth but has lots of creep, too much to learn to live with. Hammer gap is .015, seems a but much. End shake is .006-.003, sounds good. Didnít measure trigger play.

I am planning to install all necessary shims, a reduced power springs for the hammer and trigger, and finally reduce the creep via a hammer sear adjustment.

Read an article about polishing critical contact points, so Iíll work on that too.

Nice score! That is a beautiful SA, I love stainless steel revolvers.

You can sure go through a lot of ammunition quickly with the single-10. Just this week I had a 250+ round session. The pistol is pretty accurate so far and the tune-up I gave it makes it all the more enjoyable.

I have noticed that after a high round count session, there is a build up of lead and powder deposits right above the cylinder gap on the backstrap. I have no lead spitting like my other single-six that I got rid of.

I guess this is somewhat normal. It comes off fairly easily with a bronze brush and some scraping.

I need a better scraping tool though, something made of brass I guess. Anyone ever see something like that for sale?

I have a set of these, I bought them for other "gun smithing", but they work well for clearing out the deposits above the forcing cone and cylinder frame. Have to be careful with them so you don't scratch the frame since they are pretty hard and sharp.
