I fixed my Ruger Single Six !!



Log in to see fewer ads
I truly got aggravated at loading and unloading my 9.5 inch barrel Ruger Single

Six. I just haven't learned the lining up without the click and automatically being

in position to load or unload. Well, today I fixed the problem. I got one of the

Uberti 1873 Cattleman New Model, 22LR, 7.5", Case Hardened, with the all steel frame. Impact Guns ( I guess I can say this ) runs the Uberti .22 revolvers dirt cheap

occasionally. I didn't pay much for it either.

I'm afraid the Uberti has spoiled me. The fit and finish, it being full size like a Colt Single Action, and the easy loading and unloading has made this my

favorite single action .22 revolver. The only problem I have with it is: It's too pretty to shoot..... I am still going to learn to use the Ruger. You can't have too many toys.

Do the free spin conversion on the Ruger,either the aftermarket part or as I did ,the do it yourself mod . I also did my Blackhawk without even removing the pawl. Both work like a charm for me !!

The Uberti's are really nice revolvers - Really close to a Colt. I have owned one.
Just remember only load 5 in the cylinder - they have no external safety or a transfer bar. Enjoy it.

I would be interested to hear about the point of aim accuracy and the
group sizes of different 22lr ammo after you take it to the range for test firing.
Come on, you know that you are dying to see how she performs !!!

Having an inaccurate gun is unacceptable to me and I am unhappy
when owning one. Accordingly I avoid fixed sight guns normally.
Well, not quite correct, I do own 2 S&W J frame .38 snubbies with
fixed sights and they both shoot to POA with the right bullet weight.

So I am interested in owning an Uberti, and I do understand that every
gun is different in regard to where the bullets end up going. But I would
just like to hear from you (or anyone) who owns one in regard to their
individual experiences with the POA vs. bullet strike.

Doc, I suppose I am lucky, but the point of aim for my full size Uberti Cattleman

is right on for my eyes. Shooting at 60 ft with open sights, off a sandbag rest,

I am getting about an inch to an 1 1/2 with decent ammo. I am not much of a pistol shooter with open sights. The " Kool " Factor is over the top...

The new models can safely be loaded with six, due to a floating firing pin.

In over 40 years, I've never heard that a SA revolver with (only) a floating firing pin is any safer than one with a fixed pin.

AFAIK, the only thing that makes an older/original Colt SAA or Ruger 3-screw/Old Model design SA safer is a disconnect of some lockwork re-design that prevents the hammer contacting the hammer unless the disconnect is disabled by pulling the trigger (for one) - different manufacturers taking slightly different paths to the same object.

Bearcats have a loading notch on the hammer. Pull it back one click, open the gate, and it loads / unloads just like a Colt SAA. Lines up with each chamber you click to. One of the things I really love about them.

Stoeger will tell you the design of the new 1873 Uberti Cattleman is safe to load

all six, or if it is the twelve shot model, load all twelve.

The Ubertis do too. The 1873 Cattleman and the Cattleman Stallion in .22 both do that.

Right now you can get the Uberti 6 shot Stallion model for 249.00. I bought two

of them for the price of a Bearcat.

I like the looks of the Bearcat, but it is too small for my hands to use. So many choices, only so much time.....

. The Uberti New Model .22 has a retractable firing pin. I made a mistake. I used the wrong term, I meant to say retractable. It still has the classic look of the hammer spur with the hammer back.

Ruger rules

Don't understand how a Single Six post got hijacked. My 1960 Single Six is sweet. Load one, skip one, load four, index action, sitting on a empty chamber just like a Colt.

Call it what you want. A revolver should index when the gate is open, line up so the ejector works without baby sitting the cylinder to line it up.

I told you how I fixed it. My Ubertis don't get rings around the cylinder either. That being said, I still have my Rugers......and I like them.
