    I am thinking about purchasing a Ruger Super Single Six Convertible. Those of you that have them how is the accuracy of the 22 lr cylinder? I am not expecting match accuracy. But is 1 1/2 inch groups at say 15-20 yards doable.

    I ve had three and all were more accurate with 22 mag but I don’t think you’ll be disappointed with the lr cylinder and ammo.

    I have two single sixes, one with adjustable sights and one with fixed. My shooting is nearly 100% .22LR- I think the single six will meet or exceed your expectations.

    Mine will do 1 1/2" with Mini mags at 25 yards. It is an older one from 1974 if memory serves.

    Mine is very accurate with most any ammo I run through it in either 22lr or 22 mag configuration.

    I always felt they were pretty accurate revolvers.

    Mine is accurate with 22 LR, the only time I tried it with 22 mag I wasn't impressed but I only tried 1 brand of 22 mag ammo. I bought it in the 70s to shoot 22 LR in, I have no reason to shoot 22 mag out of a revolver.

    Pete 22LR is what I want to shoot in it. I want a understudy to my Old Model 45. All I have now is 22 autos.

    I bought the SS years ago just because it was on sale. After using it for a while it became my walk around gun, dispatches rabbits, rattle snakes tin cans etc. Really is a good handgun. For me it's better than any semi for a holster gun. Get it, you won't be sorry.

    I really like mine. At 15-20 yards it will shoot 1" groups all day with standard velocity 40 grain ammo. I attribute it to the 6 1/2" barrel, sight radius and good balance. I found mine used about 20 years ago and paid $240 then; serial number indicates it was made in 1994. The X-R3 red frame is the same as other Blackhawks so the grips are interchangeable.

    I used my first one for hunting and accuracy with mag ammo was slightly better and flatter shooting. I wouldnt say a significant difference but still a 1/4" is a 1/4" and it only gets larger as distance increases. Unless it really matters I'd shoot the cheaper lr ammo.

    Great gun. As good as any SA .22 around and will last several lifetimes.

    Stumbled upon one a while back.
    Bisley version.
    Was 22LR only, so I fitted a WMR cylinder.
    And walnut grips.
    Agree they are better WMR shooters.
    But I have many more accurate 22LR guns, so this one has been relegated to safe duty.

    I have owned 2 single sixes a 6 inch which was incredible accurate and a 4 inch that was pretty much just ok.

    I regretted selling the 6 inch after the first time shot the 4 inch.

    I eventually sold it and bought a SW model 18-4. I loved it so much I then got a 617 and then a model 63.

    I am saving money now for a S&W 22 WMR revolver.
