I bought a pair of Ruger Single Six back in 2012, and the .22 Magnum cylinders were included.

So everyone is making comments that have nothing to do with the question...too funny!!:lol:


I've had customers that have...wasn't a big deal. Would have to check with Ruger to see if they are still doing that program or you can find a Mag Cylinder and fit it yourself.

When I was 7, my dad bought me a Single Six Ruger revolver.

Almost every weekend where were camping in the desert.

We took turns shooting bottle caps off a fallen Joshua tree.

My dad offered to buy me a new Single Six but I said I wanted the one he gave me.

He bought a new Single Six and it came with a Magnum cylinder.

He called Ruger to ask if he could send the first revolver back to be fitted with a magnum cylinder.

They asked for the serial number.

Looked it up and said the gun was not able to take a magnum cylinder.

The old frames where slightly shorter and the magnum cylinder would not fit.


I still have that Ruger.

It has a 5 digit serial number starting with 1.

Makes it about 12###.


We would shoot 3000 to 5000 round per weekend.

For at least 10 or 11 years.

Then not so much but maybe twice a month.


This little Ruger is probably the tightest gun I have other than new never shot guns.


No it is not for sale.


Note: The loading gate is flat with a thumb nail notch in it.

It does not follow the recoil shield shape.

Ruger will only fit an extra cylinder if the gun originally came with it. That was what they told me last time I checked with them a couple years ago.Best to just call Ruger and see if they will fit one.If not, then as Phantom suggests, find a .22 Mag cylinder and have it fit to your pistol. About a 95% chance it will drop right in.
