I must say $2000 is a little much for a plinker.
Kinda what I was thinking.I must say $2000 is a little much for a plinker.
So pay $1000 to $1200 for a used gun plus another $175 to make it a plinker????catalog #58 lists a conversion barrel and cylinder for 100.00 for cylinder , 69.58 for barrel . part#850-000-014 for cylinder , 850-000-016 for barrel , find a used single six for a decent price and you got it . Kenneth
Having a Freedom Arms revolver is one of my life's wishes ... one of those extravagant things that may not really be worth the extra money but sure would be satisfying...I must say $2000 is a little much for a plinker.
No, they are same caliber. No more then the other convertable models. Just pull cylinder pin out and out comes cylinder. Reverse it for the new cylinder.Just an update, I emailed Ruger about a HM2 cylinder for their Singel Six and here is the response:
We did produce this convertable model but it has since been discontinued. We no longer have the Mach II cylinders.
On the Brownells HM2 cylinder, if you have a HMR single six would you have to replace the barrel? How much work is involed in changing out the cylinder?
It should from what I have seen a time or two in past.I found a single six in HMR at the gun show today. Put an order into brownells for the mach2 cylinder. Should be here in a week and then I guess we will see how it goes. Does anyone know how you check the alignment and timing on a revolver? I should be able to just pop it in the frame and go right?
