I have been trying to see if there I perhaps a discontinued version of the Super Single Six with a barrel under 5 inches. Does anyone have one like this?

I have a 5.5" SS I got for Christmas when I was ten.

I hope that it will see many more generations of my descendants. I love just holding that gun.

Not yet, but one is on my list. They're great rimfire revolvers. :)

I got 2 older 3 screw safe queens, and my 1980s super single six has the 9.5 inch barrel..... She's a heck of a shooter!:supergrin:

When I get one it will definitely be a 3-screw model.

it is a 50th anniversary edition, the barrel is 45/8", red medallions on the grips, red plastic case. Not a 3 screw version. Found it unfired other than from the factory at a LGS near me, $430+tax and fees. Built in 2003, bought in 2012. I don't care about the anniversary crap, I shoot it.

SS Single-Six Convertible w/5.5" barrel

Ruger's site show 2 BLUE Convertible models w/ 4.62" barrel -MSRP $559.

Don't recall seeing many Single-Sixes used and sure none with a <5" barrel.

Best.

I had a single six with 4 5/8" barrel.

Bought it in the early 80s

Actually had 2 of them, one in .22/.22 mag and one in .32 h&r

Thanks everyone. Looks like the 5.5 is a lot easier to come by. I saw a BearCat at the range but the grips felt small to me.

I was shopping for a Bearcat when I came across the Single Six "Vaquero" I posted. It just felt better in my hand than a Bearcat

Very nice, Berto

That's along the lines of what I'm looking at get. My shop has a couple 3-screw 22mags, actually.

I don't show her as much love as my others. She's pretty much a Safe Queen. Only shot it a few times when I was a teenager and plan to pass it down the family tree.

Is there something special about these other than the fact that there fun, and cheap to shoot?

Ruger still lists a blues 4.6" barrel single six convertible on their web site.

They also have a distributor exclusive 4.6" stainless steel with fiber optic sights available through lipseys.

So you don't have to look for a discontinued one.

What more could you ask for? :supergrin:

I don't have one now, but once my .22 auto sells I will be getting a SS Single Six convertible.

Won't lie...and please don't crucify me...but I hate those .22lr revolvers. I had my ruger .22 lr revolver that just wasn't accurate enough and the sound was terrible...it was so so so so loud! I have had 44 mags that were quieter!!! Plus all that being said...why shoot one when you can shoot a semi that will be overall way way better?

I won't crucify you, just say IMO you are nuttier than a squirrel turd and have a miniscule amount of experience.

Have a great Christmas.:wavey:

I have an old three screw 22 mag only that belonged to my dad. I love the gun and the memories. Dad is now 94 years of age and gave the gun to me.

....my ruger .22 lr revolver that just wasn't accurate enough....

I had a 6.5" convertible Single Six a number of years ago that I wanted to like in the worst way. Loved the look, loved the feel, loved the idea, but it just wouldn't shoot. I tried multiple ammo types, .22lr and .22 mag, just couldn't get it to group acceptably(2 inches at 25yds off a sandbag would have been acceptable).

Finally sold it and have thought about trying another one ever since.

I inherited my Father's Ruger SS 5 1/2 in bbl, two cylinders; he bought it new in 1976; the BiCentenial Edition. Fine shooting .22. It takes a while to go through a box of .22s and a more relaxed shooting session.

This is a Lipseys run from a good ten years ago. This and my Smith Kit gun are a couple of my favorites to pack along. IIRC its a 4 5/8 inch barrel.
