Its missing the 22 magnum cylinder, :( the original owner is a 84 year old gentleman who, 'has trouble finding his own arse', as he puts it.
Does any persons have an extra one available, or am i just pretending?:confused:
its serial # starts with 62-xxxxxxx, ruger search indicates its from the early 70's.

hi jb and jeff

the serial # number locator has a disclaimer attached , siting that the gun was made in the series allotted to that particular batch. for example, its serial number may be 1200, produced begin may and august of '75, the next production (1201 to 1300) of that number sequence may be in 1980.
From the website data, one could conclude that it may have been built long before its availability.
thanx.
maybe i'll try the wanted section of this site. and or email ruger themselves

good news and bad news

I sent a single six back last year to have a new ( .22r) cyl fitted for the same reason. Cost was only $55 if memory serves. However, one of the side effects of sending a gun back to ruger is that they have a tendancy to "laywerize" the trigger. Mine went in with a sweet crisp trigger and came out like a heavy /mushy POS. Had to send it to my smith for a spring kit and honeing to get it nice again. ( $40). Seems they take it appon themselves to bring your trigger up to date during the visit. ( No Charge or choice) I have another single six in mag only that I'd like o send in but can't seem to bring myself to do it now.

wow, thanks jefferito, i think ill steer my ship clear of this and maybe consider my single six a 22lr and leave as is. The smoooth trigger on mine was perhaps the main selling feature, next to being stainless, rimfire and mint.
thanks again to you all.
going hunting black bear now. back in four days..see ya'll!!:cool:
