    Huh , that don't sound right.
    I have several .22 revolvers (and a couple of bottom feeders) . I also have several Bearcats but was lacking in man sized Ruger Single Sixes.
    So I went and squeezed some of the new Wranglers but just could not warm up to them. New construction and finish aside I like my adj. sights plus no 22 mag. option.
    That gives me the excuse to hit the pawnshops and used gun counters.
    I was rewarded with these two and a brick of 22lr ammo for less that $500 out the door.
    The blue one is a 22lr and has a uncommon brass frame. Digging in my parts box produced a 22 mag cyl. that fits perfectly. Actually , it probably will not get used as I'm not a huge fan of convertible cylinders . It always requires some sight readjusting and I prefer set and forget.
    Therefore the stainless one has only the 22 mag cyl. and has already earned a new set of flat bottomed grips.
    Two guns for two cartridges.




    I figure for the same money with proper shopping I could have had 3 new Wranglers or 4 Heritige Arms . Sure they got a few miles on em but I'm happier going this way.

    Good catch Al! I too prefer the older guns to the new Wranglers... not interested in the Heritage trinkets @ all. By the way some of the older Single Sixes were .223 barrels & not intended for .22magnum (.224).

    Those are a great pair of old Rugers and will be fun shooting them. I had got two of the Wranglers for grandkids but they never warmed up to them. Got me old model Series six with both cylinders in exchange and feel I did good. Congrats.

    RUGER 22's

    Al
    Good shopping. I like those.
    I have a Super Single Six that I have used thru the years. More 22 LR than 22 MRF.
    I found these other two blue guns at LGS last year.
    Blued 22 MRF with extra 22 LR cylinder.
    Blued 22 LR.
    Both of the blue guns are better than what I generally shoot. Both are nice early guns.
    Some pics.

    No problem ,,,, I got some minis too!

    Top stainless is cut for 22 magnum .
    The bottom stainless with the adjustable sights comes mighty close to a single six for shootability.

    Sweet pair of Rugers. Although not my thing, I still appreciate quality when I see it. Congrats!
