I'm partial to the 4 5/8th stainless single six convertible with adjustable sights. This is a Lipseys exclusive. I prefer the shorter barrel lengths. Mine is a very good shooter.

The 4 5/8" carries well in a high ride on hip or a shouder rig, the longer you go the more barrel you have to pull out of leather and gets in the way for sitting or working. My 6 1/2" is nice, traditional long barreled classy ....just too long holstered unless Im upright. And my (sad?) truth is it gets carried more time than actually used. I have entertained cutting it down.....
My fav for a couple of years now has been the 3 1/2" Birdshead New Model Blackhawk 45ACP, I could really like a companion in a Sgl Six just like it but the TALO versions went sky high.

If you plan to carry it more than you would use it as a range gun, I'd suggest either a 4.62" (Model 0623) or a 5.5" Barrel (Model 0621). These are both blued finish.

If you want stainless: Model 0625 in 5.5", or the Lipseys Model 0627 in 4.62".

If the gun would be primarily a range gun, take a look at the 6.5" barrel models. Stainless (Model 0625, or, if you like the shorter barrel (5.5") look at the Model 0625.

All of these are shown Here at the Ruger site.

I have the 6.5" stainless, and I love it. It's a tack driver.

For a fun plinker , can killer , Single Six that would be easily carried I say go to CDNN and buy The Lipsey model 0678 . A 4 5/8” model with fixed sights . One that that has sights that won’t get hung up going in and out of a holster .


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 have owned many of them over the years, in 4.62- 5.5, 6,5, and 9.5. The two that I still have are the 5.5, and 9.5. The 9.5 has an accuracy edge over the shorter ones, and is good for pest control, target shooting off a rest, and hunting out to 50 yards. But it doesn't roll in hand as well and return to battery for off hand plinking, and steel as the 5.5. All of the ones I have owned have been blued.

The balance in your hands can make a difference in which one is best for you. I suggest that you try to handle a few, and see what feels right for you. If you are planning on using both cylinders get one with adjustable sights. I have never had one that didn't need a sight adjustment when switching from lr, to mag.

My first attempt at pictures. My 4 5/8ths adj. sights with an El Paso Saddlery Tom Threepersons style belt holster. Lots of good ideas here. Half the fun is looking. (The sights don't snag on this holster.)

Nice!
I have often thought some tasteful engraving on a ss model would be sweet and no re-bluing required after.
But never get initials or your (current) spouse's name

A little bit of engraving would look good!

Thanks for your words of wisdom, I think I will get the 5.5 or 6 inch bbl since it will be at the range more than hunting but I won't rule the later out. I do believe the 5,5 is the happy medium here. The next think is to accumulate the money for it.

I think a 5.5” model in Stainless ( if I are going to carry ) with adjustable sights would be a good compromise , that should perform all that you want it to do . Congrats on your choice .

Measure from the muzzle to the beginning of the barrel inside the cylinder well.

I just measured my Single Six, and it is exactly 6-1/2 inches.
