This is a little different than your normal revolver review, because I'm about to tell you about a gun I don't own. I do own a 4 3/4" Ruger Single Six, but it was made in 1958 and at the moment it's at Ruger getting the action parts replaced for the second time in it's long, hard life. I've shot thousands of rounds through that gun, and it's been a good user gun for me, and I've used the heck out of it... But today, I went to the range with my wife and stepson to shoot some 22's. We took a rifle and two handguns - a Colt Woodsman sport and a Colt Match Target 4 1/2" barrel - both third series. Anyway there was a guy right next to us shooting with his young son, and he oohed and aahed when I took out the colts, and so I let him shoot them. They really are nice guns too. In turn, the guy showed me what he was shooting, which was a brand new stainless Single Six with a 22LR and a 22 Mag cylinder. I shot several cylinders of 22LR and 22 mag both. People believe me when I tell you this was a super sweet little revolver. The only complaint I had with it is the way you load and unload it - which once you got used to not half-cocking it, was really not so bad. It had a good trigger, the action was smooth and slick, and it shot literally lights out smooth and accurate. We were just plinking, but I was doing at least as well with it as with my Colts, and it was every bit as much fun to shoot. I can't wait till mine comes back from the factory so I can compare - but from what I remember, it's not nearly as nice as the new one I shot - so I think I'll be looking for me a new one soon! I LIKE IT!
