And forever more, it's been carried!.. Nice piece.
Ruger all day long
Even better...a Colt New Frontier .22 with that wonderful color case hardened frame, beautiful blued finish, and adjustable rear sight!
Brother that was the cat's meow in single action .22s!
I need to get my Heritage and my Ruger out to the range more often. Guns are for shooting not sitting in a closet safe. "Guns have feeling too, ya know".
OP says that the
"1973 Ruger Single Six" he is looking at is "well worn but still tight".
Think about that for a minute... Over 45 years old and still tight. Probably has another 30 or 40 left in it.
I think that old Ruger does a pretty good job of selling itself.
I have a friend that has one that is about 30 years old. Beautiful gun. Yep, that gun had been sitting a long time. He said he doubted he had shot it more than 5 times. He wanted to trade me that gun for a Ruger LCP. As much as I wanted to make that trade, I just could not bring myself to make the deal. Sold him the LCP for a $100 and a box of Tula ammo instead. I probably should have traded him. Heck, he never shoots it. I do hope that gun goes to a good home some day.
Kind of like a guy that has a top hunting dog and never takes it hunting. Drives me crazy every time.
I did tell him that he needs to train with the Little LCP. Three years later, I asked him how well the gun shot and he told me he had not shot it yet. I am sure there are a few million good deals out there. Just gotta seek them out. Maybe just ask anyone one you know if they have a old gun they want to sell. Never know until you ask.
Buy both op, that way you don't have to choose.
Whoo boy Jeb , I would not have passed that up.
Very practical idea. Then you have the Single Six for life , more or less , and what's another $100 and change for the Heritage?
New HRRs sell for $119.00 at Dunham's while on sale. They go on sale every other week. If that well worn SS is less than $250.00 just go buy it. If it is $119.00 you had better already own it. tom.
Mine is 60 years old and is tight as a tick.
I would also say get both 22 cylinders for the Heritage RR just for the 22 mag option, because as i stated before in another RR realated thread, 22 mag has the power of a 22 lr out of a carbine length barrel, in a wheelgun/semi-auto pistol length barrel.
I wouldn't own a Heritage, but I have over twenty Ruger handguns.
I did, this thread started before that other one.
