    I have been told that Ruger Single Six revolvers are available in two flavors - the convertible kind that come with a spare .22 mag cylinder, and the non-convertible kind, marked with a little star or something on the frame.

    The difference, presumably, is the the non-convertibles have a tighter bore for better accuracy with standard .22 ammo. (The convertibles have a slightly larger bore to accommodate the .22 mag).

    I poked around the Ruger web site a bit and didn't find anything about this. Anybody know for sure?

    You pretty much have it right.You wont find anything on Ruger's site because star models were only around a short time and no longer produced.This was around the time Ruger just started making convertables and spare cylinders were not shipped with each gun.I just found one in my gun shop for 250.
