    Would love to see pics of RR groups like that (non-modified or accuratized RR's) that put me in my place and keep me from picking on a gun (I like all 3 of mine) that I think of as just a fun inexpensive replica can-killer. Maybe I should practiced more with my 16" RR... ya think!
    Thank you sir! A ray of sunshine through the darkness out of the wilderness! I appreciate your level headed way of looking at this and your honesty in your own ability. We have a member or 2 That claims one and a 1/2 inches at 25 yd is perfectly normal for there RR. I think some of us on here have a problem seperating the reality of our senior years of shooting skill today with what was normal when we were shooting 50 years ago.

    I have been shooting close to 70 years and even I have problems accepting the reality of the way I shoot now compared with the even back then better than average shooting I could do 50 years ago.

    I think if everyone was more honest about their shooting ability then all the rest of us could be much more comfortable talking about how bad ours is!

    I see gun control as driving an ambulance to the bottom of a cliff when we should be building a fence at the top!

    At 25 yds, with my eyes, I'm just happy to hit the paper. Thank god for shoot-n-see targets.

    Nice lookin revolver. I've got an extra set of grips like that.

    Enjoy your new plinker. I have one of the plain jane models and an accessory mag cylinder and giggle every time I plink with it. I was regularly hitting my steel plate at 50 yards despite its rudimentary sights a couple days ago. I wish it didn't have that stupid safety, but otherwise think they're a hoot.

    From the different opinions of the RR and its accuracy potential, I think it is fair to say that accuracy can vary widely between individual specimens. That is also true to a point with the Ruger Single Six, especially with different cylinders. From the various postings about the RR from different sources, it appears that RR quality is not as consistent as Ruger nor should we expect it to be at the RR price point. A $500 revolver it is not, but it is still the best bang for the buck in its price range.

    That model (color) was my choice when I traded a 4.75 inch (black with the std red handle) for a 6.5 inch. Ended up with the same model (black with std red handle) cause I was cheap. This dealer gave me decent price ($60) on my 4.75 inch (they sell for as low as $99), but his model I liked was $20 higher that the Std Model. I decided to stay cheap and buy AMMO.

    Then to top it off - had cosmetic problems that i did not notice until I got home. TAURUS fixed that.

    As far as my accuracy at 25 yards - Bottom Target is 25 yards with hands (and gun) at rest on table, it leaves a lot to be desired. I used 3 different AMMOs (R is Remington Thunderbolt 1230 FPS, CCI is 1200 FPS CCI, and A is Aquila 1255 FPS). .

    For what it is worth, my RR is more accurate with the .22 Mag. cylinder, which is the same case with my Single Six. The exception is the .22 LR copper ammo by CCI, which the RR shoots very well.

    Mine is just a few months old... I only have the .22lr cylinder but this 7.5" barrel can really shoot straight!

    I shot mine for the first time last weekend. Picking out dirt clods and those sorts of targets at 25 yards, I was quite pleased with how close I was hitting, standing two-handed.

    But 1.5" groups? I'd be surprised.
