    Ruger, and Ruger.

    And with a bit of loving care/cleaning, a stainless Single-Six should last SEVERAL lifetimes!

    I don't own an EAA but have owned a Single Six for 25+ years and it still looks new. It is accurate, totally reliable and a fun shooter. You can't go wrong with a Ruger.

    I will be very surprised if anyone chooses the EAA over the Ruger. The Ruger is simply an excellent revolver, and is famous for giving years of trouble free service in tens of thousands of examples.

    I own several Rugers including a stainless .22 single six. It performs flawlessly as did it's predecessor, another Ruger single six and as do all of my Rugers. Well made, excellent quality, fun!

    I got a 1977 Ruger Single-Six that I taught my kids with and now my grandkids. I'll bet that gun will be around to teach their grandkids if someone don't sell it. Need I say more. Ruger.

    For what it's worth, I bought an EAA .22/.22 Mag single action, but blued rather than nickle. I put about 200 rounds through it before the cylinder bolt broke. I repaired it under warranty, traded it off and never looked back.

    Same deal here. Except mine is getting rather well worn.

    I've had three of the .22 Single-Sixes and two of the .32Mag ones. Every one has been great. I currently have three and shoot them regularly. I don't think you'll ever go wrong with a Single-Six.

    Couldn't vote either way.......

    I don't go for shiny sixguns, nickel or stainless.

    My preferences lean toward case colored/blue. And, I'd prefer centerfire over rimfire. I had a Single Six in .32 H&R Magnum that I let get away from me, and that was really a nice little gun.

    Also had a Ruger .22 Convertable that was really a fine little gun. At that time I could get .22 WRF ammunition and preferred that over the .22 LR. Had to use the Magnum cylinder for the .22 WRF.

    Ditto! I've had mine that long also. Great fun gun.

    Sorry for the hijack, but the Ruger single-six 22LR has caught my attention too. I'd like to get a single action revolver strictly for fun at the range and as something that I could hopefully get my wife to try shooting. Is there a reason most of you specifically voted for the stainless model? I'm with Bob as far as liking the look of a blued or "black" revolver better. Are the other finishes more likely to rust? I always clean and oil my guns after shooting them.

    It's just a matter of preference. I like stainless because it's easy to touch-up if there's a blemish. Blued guns are pretty but it's usually more difficult to touch-up a small area and have it match 100% without blueing the whole piece. If you holster the gun (cowboy action etc.) the blueing will wear on the cylinder & barrel unless care is taken (lined holsters etc.)
