Cylinder Numbers



Log in to see fewer ads
I recently purchased a New Model Single six convertible model 0621. Been a few days now and I was reading the manual about the cylinders having the last three numbers of the guns serial number on them. The 22lr cylinder is correct, but the 22mag cylinder does not match. It fits fine in the gun though. Could this be a mistake by the factory? The numbers are close though. The last three of the serial are 360 and the 22mag cylinder has 354. I emailed Ruger and waiting to hear from them. It was purchased from an online retailer as NEW and has no signs of being a used gun. Thoughts?

I would guess it got swapped by mistake. The cylinder with your SN is probably with the SS that has the SN of the cylinder you have.

They are supposed to be individually fitted to the frame, if the cylinder you have doesn't have slop to move for and aft, or is so tight that it doesn't spin normally, I wouldn't worry about it. Wouldn't hurt to contact Ruger and let them know, and see what they say.

Ruger has requested the gun back. So it's on the way.

Although you may have never experienced any problems with the cylinder in question, that was the right and "safe" response from Ruger.
