Single Six Top Strap Issue?



Log in to see fewer ads
Hello, I recently picked up a used Single Six(Cabelas 50th Anniversary edition). It is in great shape and shoots wonderfully. I noticed today after cleaning it that there is some significant lead build up above the barrel under the top strap. It was like this when I bought it and gave it a decent cleaning but didnt remove it all. Today I decided to clean it well. It looks like there are gouges or cuts in the top strap above the barrel?? I'm not sure how to describe it. I need to take pictures but does anyone have any pictures of theirs so I can compare?? Thanks

That is from tapping the frame for the barrel. They run the tap in far enough so the threads go all the way through. The top strap slightly extends into the major diameter of the tap.

As above, I've had several SSs that had cuts in the top strap from tapping the frame for the barrel. Was just a matter of keeping that area clean to avoid a buildup.

Any handy person with OCD could gently remove the marks with a (shudder) Dremel, then cold blue the touchup....

After removing the BBl, I don't think you want to do this.

This is nice to hear! After cleaning it well I can see what is what it is. Took it out tonight with my French surplus Smith Model 10. Both shot great. Boy that Ruger is so much easier to cock than the Smith!

I have shot Ruger single action revolvers for years and really never thought about this until age has brought arthritis into the equation. Now I am really appreciating my Single-Six for that reason.

You know, I never even questioned my Smith Model 10 until I picked up this Ruger. It is almost too easy to cock. It is smooth as glass.
