I saw it on TV the other day. I found it interesting, too. My Dad bought my Great-Grandfather a matching set of Single Sixes a loooong time ago. I always thought those were kewl little guns. Plinking to squirrels. What a hoot. 10 rounds just adds a little extra fun! Thanks for the link.

You're quite welcome, son. I have a great affection for the Ruger SA's like your father bought for your dad. (Now there's a GREAT son) I have an early Ruger Super Single Six Convertible with a 9 1/2" barrel, adjustable sights, and a matched .22WRFM cylinder. It's a GREAT revolver, that'll shoot the flea off a dog @ 25yds. I like this new Ruger , and if they get around to offering a Convertible long barrel version with adjustable sights, I'd be a customer. I also have a S&W617, ten shooter. Ya probally can't have too many .22LR handguns...

Yeah, I agree. 22 handguns are the bees knees. The pair he got for Pop(That was my Great-Grandad's name) had magnum cylinders too. I think he ended up leaving them to my Uncle John when he passed. I was kinda surprised he didn't leave 'em to my Dad, though. I guess it was because he and John went hunting and shooting together more than Pop and my Dad did. Either way, I can remember the western style double rig he had for 'em too. My brothers, cousins and I used to all play cowboy with 'em. Boy, we thought we were soooo cool. Actually, when we strapped them single6's on, we WERE cool!

I'm 90% sure they were. I know he bought them as a pair from the shop. I believe he even ordered them. I seem to remember too, of my Uncle actually telling me they were a numbered pair. I could be mistaken, but I'm going to check and find out. You got my curiosity up now

I never thought to look em up. I assumed that single 6's were everywhere, and therefore there would be a ton of pairs like that. Maybe you're right. I should contact Ruger about em, they tend to keep good records.

You are correct in thinking that Single Sixes are everywhere, Alabaster. How many sets were sold, and how many sets of that vintage that are still together are different issues. NONE of my business of course, BUT if I were you, I would approach my uncle to see what (if anything) I could do for/give him in exchange for that set of revolvers. If you get any info from Ruger, please post it. I'm VERY curious myself. Good luck.....

Oh, I'll be checking with him. I wouldn't have the guts to ask him to part with 'em though. He and Pop were hunting and shooting buddies for years. Though, I prolly am closer to my Unc than any of my other siblings/family members. I imagine, if I were to outlive him, I'd be getting his collection. I'd much rather have him around, for sure, but he's taken me hunting as a youngster and shooting, and he came out to some machine gun shoots with me and all, so we have always had a lot in common. I am gonna call him this week and see what we can find out. I'll keep you posted.
