    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

    posted from my stupid smart phone, please excuse any spelling mistakes.

    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.

    Heres what I got. It was a gift to my father from my grandfather.

    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:
