Lots of rust from the bore. Even after lots of Kroil, the rust still came out powdery.
Dan,If you choose to send the gun to Ruger for service they will install the transfer bar and associated parts. They will also return the original parts. if you are concerned that they may not, just remove the original lockwork. I think it is worthwhile to restore this old magnum marked Single Six.
Hey Little "r"!Will Ruger fit and supply another 22LR cylinder?
Certainly that is in my plans, once it becomes mine or I agree to help my friend get this back shipshape. :bthumb: If I remember correctly, if you send your Single Six back to Ruger, they do NOT refurb the grip frame.Since the grips have to be replaced anyway....I'd sand down the hammer damaged metal, to remove the dents, that replace the grips, and sand them to match.
Thanks! I will check it out. :tThere is a seller on Gunbroker called "Gunbusters" that sells parts guns. These are firearms where the legally registered part has been destroyed but all the rest is offered for sale as a lot. They have a new list every Sunday night. I have often seen parts single sixes available - usually with cylinder and grips included.
