Single Six vs GP100. 22LR D/A Revolver

Log in to see fewer ads
So I love both of my revolvers, and shoot them often. However, my GP100 needs the cylinder brushed out every 50 rounds or so or the ejection gets to be so sticky that I need to push the ejector rod against my shooting table. I always take my cleaning kit to the range when I shoot it and brush it out every 50 rounds. With my Single Six, I can practically go thru a brick of Rem Thunderbolt without having any issues. I also clean it after every range session and 75,000 plus rounds later it still shoots as well and is as tight as when new. This again reinforces my opinion that a stainless Single Six and a Glock .9mm are just about the most maintenance free handguns one can have. Thoughts? Is this common for a 22 LR D/A revolver? Thank you!!! Both targets were shot at 15 yards with my Single Six, the first with Rem Yellow Jacket and the second with CCI 40 Gr Maxi Mag .22 Mag.

I have a similar experience with my single ten. I go 400 to 500 rounds until I decide I probably need to clean it. Accuracy does not suffer and once it gets to a certain point of fouling, it seems to not foul any worse. Occasionally I'll brush out the cylinders to ease loading, but that's about it. Yesterday I took it to the range all nice and clean and put 200 rounds through it. 300 more to go!

I have a few single six's, and Two GP 100's. I started using dry lube on the front cylinder face on the single six's a few years ago. Since getting the 44 Special and 22LR GP's, I have been using it on the front and back face of them.

I use Liquid Wrench with cerflon. After a cleaning I finish up with pushing the ejector open, and giving the cylinder face/ejector a short spray. I keep holding it open until it's dry. It dries pretty fast.
The dry lube will help with the sticking, and it will also clean easier. I can get about 150 rounds before cleaning shooting Norma and SK sv.

I don't think it is at all uncommon for one to have to clean the DA rimfire more frequently because the extractor is pulling 6-10 rounds vs only one for the single action. It also has alot to do with chamber dimensions. Tighter will be less tolerant of residue.

Not to detour the threat, but how does everyone like the GP100 rimfire vs a S&W Model 617? I was surprised how expensive the Ruger was and felt it was fairly close to the 617 in price. I was expecting Ruger to bring the price down a bit more than it did, so I presume they felt confident it could go head to head with the S&W.

DA trouble

Years ago I got a brand-new Colt Trooper in .22 LR. After about 25 rounds, the cylinder wouldn't turn, crud under extractor. Had to brush it with Hoppe's solvent to shoot another 25 rounds. I finally got rid of it, buyer said he could remedy this, but I never found out if he did.
