I was recommended a Ruger revolver in .22 LR. Does anybody know if Ruger used to make a .22 LR double action revolver? I can not find anything on the internet, so I was hoping that somebody had heard of it. Thanks.

SP-101 in 22 LR but you'll have to find it used. They're out of production. :(

Supposedly they're back. I have yet to see one though. :(

I went to the online catalog and did not see it listed. Fishslayer, I hope you're right and I'm wrong. The world will be a happier place.

A recent Guns & Ammo spilled the beans. Ruger fessed & claimed shipping should start August 1. I believe it's been delayed.

Most gun companies are starting to understand that the need for a good .22 pistol in their line up is important. Alot of people like the low cost and minimal recoil of .22lr and are buying the crap out of .22 pistols and rifles.

Just the sp101? I was under the impression that there was a 10 or 11 shot revolver that they made.

10-shot SS, 8-shot SP.

I wonder if the marketing boys at Ruger are with holding the SP101-22 for a while so the one gun doesn't steal the thunder from the other. Or vice versa. Having TWO new products at the same time definetly dilutes the market and neither gets the full focus it deserves. I wouldn't be surprised to see the SP101-22, or whatever the official tag for it turns out to be, held until near Christmas.

DPris,
What do you mean by "10 shot SS"

Mauser, Ruger recently came out with a 10 shot Single Six.

Oh, okay; are you sure that there aren't any others?

DPris,

I would think SS means Single Six, without even going to Ruger.com to make sure.

Edited to add: I see danjet500 beat me to it.

I'm not aware of any others.

S&W has a 10 shot 617. I think they're around $900. :eek:

Ruger is making a 10-shot Single-Six. Haven't seen one yet, though.

A 10-shot "Cowboy Revolver" (Single-Action) seems a bit odd to me, but whatever spins your fan . . .

Would like to see Ruger bring back the .22LR in the SP-101 series. Got to shoot one of those once..like it a lot

Hang on, they're doing it.
Nice gun.

A ten shot single "six" would make the cowboy shooters able to shoot as many times as the movie boys did without reloading. We've gotten info at the shop about these "single tens" but have seen none. Have only had one Ruger 1911 come through..about as scarce as Kimber Solos.

Seriously, Ruger is bringing out the SP101 in an eight shot version...they did make it in six shot years ago along with 22mag and 32 H&R Mag. Also a few in 9mm, I believe.

I have to say I like those grips on the new 8-shot SP-101 in 22LR. Years ago they didn't do much for me in the looks department with the GP-100, but they sure feel good in the hand.

So, Mauser Lover, the new SP-101 in 22 is on the way, just has not been officially announced by Ruger or hit the shelves. From what DPris says, I don't think you will be displeased overall with the new one. I did not like the discontinued one at all and passed buying one numerous times at stores and shows. DPris has a sample for testing/evaluation I assume for an upcoming article in one of the magazines.

Ok, thanks, I will keep my eyes open for one of those new ones, and quit looking for a old double action Ruger revolver that apparently does not exist....

Does anybody know how to make a thread disappear, meaning delete it?

You ask a question, you get answers, and you want to delete the thread?
Ruger used to make a DA .22 revolver.
They're making a new version.
They're making a 10-shot SA revolver.
Why delete?

Don't delete. This is good info. Thanks for bringing the topic up Mauser Lover. Now I'm adding SP101 .22 to my wishlist.

They certainly do exist. Here's one for sale.

Yes , they do exist- I got a like-new 4" last week end at a gun show-according to the serial number, it was made in 1991.

danjet500, I meant one that does not exist... I thought that there was one that was double action, from Ruger, that had 10 shots, not the old SP101, I knew that the SP101 existed, but no ten shot one...

I am not going to delete this thread unless it is most certainly, and unresurrectibly dead. But I need to delete one other one that was kind of useless, short, and is definitely dead. After I delete it doesn't THR keep it archived somewhere?

a mod should really answer that, Mauser, but there is no particular point in deleting your thread(s), unless you have said something embarrassing or stupid
(you know, something like I might do !)
if you do delete it, I believe it is gone gone forever, not saved in the database

shucks there are LOTs of ancient threads here, folks sometimes do find them useful, leastways if they bother to use the search function
I do not think you can actually delete threads though, only your own posts, unless you are a mod

I must say personally the Single-Ten looked odd in person. It has to many timing nobs -for lack of a better name- in the cylinder, I still like how the single six is convertible from 22 lr to 22 mag. I am also waiting for the SP-101 in 22lr for a training revolver.

Mauser lover

I don't mind having "to many timing nobs", but they look as if they are much too far forward; does anybody else think so?
