I also own a 4 5/8 Lipsey model - Great balance and the fixed sights are more of a challange. My Favorite of many I have owned through the years.

For a range gun I’d go with the 6.5” Single Six in Stainless with adjustable sights . I find the longer barrels are easier to shoot tighter groups with and shoot longer distances.

I like it.....I gotta have it !! How are the sights ? are they on the money

with standard velocity ?

One of my most accurate revolvers. At ten yards , my brother and I both were picking off 12 gauge shotgun hulls. CDNN Sports is the only place I know still have them and have them for a great price IMO .
Wish Ruger would come out with a 3” Birdshead version with fixed sights . I’ve seen the Talo version and would love to have one , but not for the over $1000 price folks are asking for them .

What's so great about all the Single Six pistols is that it's impossible to make a wrong choice.

Buy what strikes your fancy.

Buy with confidence.

The real question should be which one should I buy first?

Does this one ring a bell with you? I believe they made a few of these "Black Birds" back in 2011.

I didnt know about them until too late ; I was doing something else at the time and out of the loop.
I have to have blued, to match my New Model BH 45acp version and because I just cannot use bright, shiny sights.
Of course, then I would have to source another set of stags.....

Very Nice ! They were available before I got bitten by the bug . Wish they’d bring them out again. I read where the Talo version with white grips had only 450 produced . That’s why they’re $1000+ if you find one .
I wonder how many of the 4 5/8 Stainless Convertables were made . It’s a Lipsey version .

Fortunately, my timing was right and I was able to snag a .22LR “White Bird” back in 2011....... when they came out at a good price. Shortly thereafter, some sellers were trying to sell them for double the price that had originally purchased them for.

The “White Bird “ is gorgeous ! Maybe I’ll luck into one someday or Ruger will decide to produce them again.
I’ve come close to getting one of the Single Sevens in .327 . But I’m not really interested in centerfires .

Jealous!

Man, am I ever envious of those Bird's Head Single Sixes! Please Ruger, do another run! The last one I saw for sale, years ago, was $1250 (Blackbird).

When I saw the Lipsey's exclusive you guys are discussing above I had my shop order me one. It did have to go back to Ruger to get a tight chamber issue resolved. Came back great and is a favorite for plinking around the ranch.

I got a 9.5 inch barrel SS back in the 80's. Very accurate with the magnum cylinder, so-so with LR. After decades of carry, the aluminum grip frame is looking a little rough, but functionally is still 100 percent.

I've had an adjustable rear sight single six since 1978 and the rear sight has snagged on my holster exactly zero times. Why on God's green earth anyone would prefer a milled notch over an adjustable notch other than for some period aesthetic is beyond me.

Fixed sights over adjustable sights...

To maybe answer your question, if the fixed sights are on target, you never need to worry about them getting out of adjustment. And if you wear a holster covered in part by a coat, then the adjustable sights could get hung up. The less protrusions the better sort of thing. I have revolvers and pistols with each type. Each has it's place.
