I met an older friend in Walmart before Christmas and we started talking. Well last year he started selling off his guns (he is 75) and thought he would do this in case something happened to him. I have bought several guns from him including my M1 Garand. He said had a Single Six three screw convertible in the box and wanted to know if I would be interested. I said sure. Well after the holidays and all we met again and I looked it over. The original receipt was in the box and the gun is in very good shape with some bluing missing on the barrel. Well do not think I got hurt at 300.00. Now need a range trip. It is a Flat Top and really like the older models this way. He is the original owner.

very nice.. love these old Rugers. I picked up a '61 single-six 6 1/2 inch barrel - 22 mag only one about a year ago. mine is obviously a gun that saw a lot of holster time, but as soon as I got my hands on it it was clear that it was a keeper. It has seen a lot of range time since then..

I found the original walnut grips to be a little small for my hands, but added a set of the extended Texas Grips that solved that problem right quick..
