I picked up a single six 22lr/22mag.I ran the numbers it was made 1978. It's Blue 6 1/2 barrel ,rosewood grips finish 99%.Paid $250 Gun looks new,very tight action,smooth trigger,adjustable sights. I hope it will make a nice plinker. Anyone else have one?
I had one, made in 1973, one of the first runs of the new model. It was a 5-1/2" barrel with Rosewood grips. Very nice gun. Very accurate, too. Too bad, but some SOB stole it from me. The recent models do not have the finish of the older guns.
I, actually, chose a Heritage Rough Rider over a new Single six. Though the RR wasn't as pretty as the SS, the SS was NOT 2-1/2 times worth the RR. BTW, the Rough Rider is quite accurate for a SA .22.
Nice catch and great little guns. I had one with a 4 5/8 barrel and it was surprisingly accurate. Sold it to a buddy who hounded me for it for years. Wish I had it back.
With the .22 mag cylinder in the fireball at dusk was quite impressive.
I know one should always wear ear protection with any pistol, even a .22 but the .22 mag just killed me. There is something about the sonic crack of a mag out of a pistol length barrel that just drives me up a wall.
yup, I have one--a stainless new-model 5.5" convertible. It shoots very well, although the trigger is a little heavier than I'd like. I could do the "poor boy's trigger job" on it and pop-off one of the trigger-return-spring's legs, but that makes the leg rub up against the hammer spring, which makes cocking the thing feel funny and gritty. I'll probably get a set of Wolff springs for it to lighten it up, some.
Yup. I've got one I bought in 1967. My first handgun actually. It's a fun gun for plinking and it works pretty well on squirrels and rats as well. I used to go to the local landfill and shoot rats with it. I haven't shot the gun in more than 30 years. I clean it a couple times a year and it always brings back fond memories! Maybe one of these days I'll pack it into my range bag and run a couple rounds through it again.
I've seriously pondered buying the current version Single Six with the 9-1/2" barrel. There is just something about that barrel length that calls to me.
I just wish the Single Six was a Single NINE. That's the only reason I haven't bought a Single Six. What I wished I had bought years ago was the H&R 999 Sportsman revolver. 9 shots and a break open. ;D I did see one at a gun show a while back for $275. I just didn't want to part with my money that bad that day.
I have the Heritage RR, 22lr/22mag, and I love it too. Accurate to a fault.
But If I found a Taurus 94, 4" barrel for the right price I would probably buy it. I found two at a gun show, but by the time I went back to the guys tables they were gone. I was kind of bummed. I like the idea of 9 shots.
