    Super Single Six

    123
    My Old Model Super Single Six

    6 1/2" Barrel

    Triple K Holster

    This was my woods bummin' gun when I was a kid. Unaltered three-screw single six. No big deal as long as you only carry 5 rounds. The action is a lot smother with-out the dang transfer bar anyway. I'd hate to think about how many thousands of rounds this ole' work horse has been through. Its been the demise of many a 'coon, possum, cat, snake etc.

    Great little sixgun! I had one I referred to as my "Baby Blackhawk." Mine had the extra magnum cylinder. I used the magnum cylinder more oftern than not. I shot the .22 WRF (not the .22 WMR) mostly because I had good performance in a cartridge that handled a little better. Sometimes on cold mornings I got a little fumble-fingered and dropped those tiny .22 RF cartridges.

    And, I took quite a few squirrels with the .22 WMR. Loaded with the magnum round also made it more effective on crows, too.

    Now, alas, I am completely without a .22 RF.

    I'll heartily agree; great little guns! 6 1/2" must have been one of the most common/popular barrel lengths, as that's what mine is, too.

    I got me one of them back in 1976. New model Ruger .22lr/mag. Good shooting gun. I got to get one .357 mag one of these days.

    My Single Six

    I've got a convertible, 5 1/2" single six I bought in Salt Lake City about 1979. It is an excellent gun. I really haven't used it enough to say that it is broken in. I also have a Ruger MkII, and think the Single Six is much better. Yes, I still have the little reg pouch for the cylinder, the box and the carboard "slip cover" as well as all of the papers, manual and sales ticket. It's a peach.

    I have a stainless 5 1/2" convertible Single Six. While I have had it for 6 or 7 years, I hadnít shot enough to really break it in, until this summer. After bypass surgery I was limited to .22s for several months. I feel I rediscovered the fun of shooting guns without recoil. I certainly enjoy the boomers, but this summer I put quite a few rounds through several .22s, the Single Six among them. At the moment I am using the .22 mag cylinder to use the jacketed bullets to break in and smooth the barrel. I guess one reason I didnít play with it too much was that the barrel was a little rough and would metal foul quickly. Now it is much smoother, but I am continuing to use the mag rounds.

    Mine is one fine shooter as well with the 6 1/2" bbl. Great for just shootin cans or with the mag cylinder, a very potent varmint pistol. Don't believe I'll be selling it anytime soon.
