My one and only rimfire revolver is my Ruger Single Six. It's fun to change from LR to Magnum. I would like to get a Smith sometime though.
I would agree not so much becasue of durability. ( It's pretty hard to break a S&W .22 revolver too.). The Ruger Sp 101 is 100% easier to totally disasemble . All it requires is removal of the grip panel and the use of a short pin stored there. ( A paper clip or straghtened fish hook could work too.) No other tools or special operations required. This could be a big help if the gun ever got foulded with mud, muck ice etc. It only takes seconds to drop the internal works into your hand where they are easily cleaned. Heck, you could put teh whole disasembled gun into a sock and rince it in a streem! Very slick design on Mr. Rugers part on this one. ( Kind of makes up for the MK II disasembly disaster )The revolver I'd choose if I were stuck in the middle of nowhere would be my 4" Ruger SP-101 in .22 LR.
