First Single Six



Log in to see fewer ads
First but not last. Posted on the picture thread too. As you can tell I was pretty excited to get one.

Ruger Talo Single Six. 3-3/4'' Barrel and birdshead grip.

This is my first gun that I ordered online as my local shop did not have one or much interest in ordering it. Actually ended up getting 2 as the first one went on backorder for a month and I gave up on them. Found it at a second place and got it right away while at the same time it shipped from the original dealer with whom I forgot to cancel. Lesson learned but overall the online purchase was pretty painless.

Now I need a holster.

Just got back from the range and am very happy with the way it shot. What really surprised me was how it shot using the 22mags. It is a little more kick than what I was expecting but the weight of the Ruger makes that a non issue.

Nice, I haven't heard of this particular limited edition, but looking it up also lead me to Talo's John Wayne Single Six, which is also looking good. I'm more into the longer cavalry revolvers than the shorter gunslinger, but these look so slick I would definitely consider getting one if I had the opportunity.

I have the same SS, just with an ivory colored grip. Got it about 3 months ago.
The holster I got for it was a leather cross-draw from...

Actually, I saw the John Wayne version first but my local dealer wanted almost $800.00 for it. A little out of my budget. I found this Single Six for a couple hundred dollars less expensive and it was mine.

I would like to try it in 32 H&R though like the John Wayne.

Try some Winchester Dynapoint 22 mag. all lead 40 gr. HP. I think you will be very pleased with the results. Not quite the velocity of the jacketed rounds, very pleasant recoil and accurate.

WM usually has them in stock.

BTW; a very nice piece indeed.

Congrats on your new Single Six Black Bird. Nice little revolver! Hope you enjoy it.

I picked up a Single Six Birds Head a few month ago with the simulated Ivory grips and thought hard about snagging another with Black Micarta grips……I'm sure they are somewhat hard to find now!

I was happy to see the black grip one myself after seeing what the white grip ones were going for on Gunbroker.

If my brother does not want my spare I may be posting one in the classifieds.

Since I have had it, this has been the only gun that I take to the range. I do not know why it took me this long to buy a single six. It is such a joy to shoot.

Very nice.

The Holsters Ruger offers are pretty good for the money. Not as nice as the custom but good field holsters. If you want a concealed carry holster for it Mernickle makes an excellent one. High ride, comfortable, secure and perfect fit. I have them for a couple of my Vaqueros. Can be worn strong side or cross draw.

Out of curiosity what do those little guns weigh?
