Rimfire revolvers no more.

I hate to start off anything with the over used :When I was kid..." but...

I regret to have seen the slow death of the rimfire revolvers. Used to be, everyone made them. Harrington Richardson, Iver Johnson, High Standard, all had reasonably priced revolvers for shooting that were reelable. Could digest near any ammo, short or long rifle, round nose or hollow point or snake shot. Old ammo or new.

There are still plenty of .22 rimfire revolvers made, including numerous models from S&W, Ruger, Taurus, Rossi, Heritage, etc.

Just checked online inventory at my closest "preferred" LGS, and they appear to have 19 different models available.

If you are referring to economy minded double action revolvers, Charter Arms still makes the Pathfinders.

I still own two, my Super Single-six convertible Ruger and my Smith & Wesson model 617. I was just in my local Fleet store yesterday and they had the Ruger Wrangler in several colors, several Heritage single action revolvers, and a couple of Taurus double action revolvers. If anything, I think the interest in rimfire revolvers is remaining steady and maybe even increasing a little.

Only have couple rimfire's these day, one Glock and one Ruger.

The Ruger is a Single Six in 17HMR. It is a bug hole gun, very accurate. Very nice gun

Speaking of economy double action revolvers, I forgot about the resurrected Hi-Standard Double Nine soon to be made by Diamondback and named the Sidekick.

Taurus makes several variants of the 942 in 22lr and 22WMR.
Ruger has the LCR, LCRX,SP101 and GP100.
S&W has several models.
Charter Arms has their pathfinder series.
You have to adjust for inflation. Guns that used to cost $100 are now $400.

Economy .22's? I just looked up the MSRP for the Ruger Single Six. $760 is no economy gun. I bought this gun new in 2015 for just under $500. I look it up in my inventory.

Have gun prices realy gone up that much? Holy cow!

Yep. Ruger cranked up their traditional revolver prices by large amounts in the last 1.5 years. Makes one look at S&W more than ever.

I wonder if an adjustable sight Wrangler will be coming in 2022?
