The Ruger Single Six is a single action rimfire revolver produced by Sturm, Ruger. The Single Six was first released in June of 1953. [" [http://www.gunblast.com/Hamm_Old_Model_Single-Six.htm Ruger's Old Model Single-Sixes] " by Bill Hamm]

The Single Six is currently produced as the New Model Single Six. The term "New Model" simply means that this model includes Ruger's transfer bar mechanism for increased safety, allowing one to carry the revolver safely with all 6 chambers loaded. Prior to 1973, the Single Six was produced without the transfer bar mechanism, making it less safe to carry with all six chambers loaded, and with the hammer resting on a loaded chamber. The transfer bar safety allows the weapon to fire only when the trigger has been pulled. Ruger provides the transfer bar safety upgrade free of charge for owners of any old model Single Six.

pecifications

The New Model Single Six is currently chambered in .22LR, .22 WMR (22 magnum), and .17 HMR. Barrel lengths include 4 5/8, 5 1/2, 6 1/2, 7 1/2, and 9 1/2 inches. Both blued and stainless steel versions are available. Ruger manufactures several "convertible" models that include a separate cylinder that allows the use of a different cartridge. Namely, they offer models that ship with both a .22 LR cylinder and .22 WMR cylinder. For those models that ship with both cylinders, the last 3 digits of the serial number is engraved on the front of the cylinder; only cylinders that have been properly timed should be used with any given revolver. The term "Super Single Six" refers to those models which have fully adjustable target sights.

The New Model Single Six is modeled after the Ruger Blackhawk and is approximately 7/8ths of its size.
