    I ran into this little Single Six today and just had to bring it home with me. It is mint really... very faint turn lines on the two cylinders so barely used. NIB almost. Dates to 2003 and everything is with it. They insisted on getting $349 for it so no "Steals" today but a fair price I think.

    A quick and dirty, too flashy, phone cam picture because I know you guys and gals like your pictures.

    Congratulations to you and Robert E. Lee.:supergrin:

    I like the Single Six.
    I had one years ago but lost it in a trade.
    Recently I got another in a trade. It doesn't have the Magnum cylinder but has "Made in the 200th Year of American Liberty" on the barrel.

    I've also got the Bearcat.
    Both fun shooters.:)

    Well... he is dead but I still live.

    I saw a classic Mark I (not the bull barrel target) in there and they wanted $600 for it! I almost fainted. I sold one years ago for like $150 and it was the Bull Barrel target one too. Wish I knew now what I didn't know then... as they say.

    These are fun little pllnkers.

    Yes, a good MKI or MKII is going for as much as a new MKIII.
    I have all three and I'd swap my MKIII for a MKII in a second.
    Whoever those idiots are at Ruger that decided to put that lawyer crap on a 50 year old trouble free design should be hung.

    Need to find me some leather for it guys. Any suggestions? Something "cow boyish" is more fitting I would think.
