Ruger new single six spring replacement

Recommended Posts

I have a set of Ruger new single six revolvers in 22/22 mag that have pretty stiff trigger and hammer springs, so stiff that kids have some issues with cocking the hammers especially when trying a dualist draw, Wolff makes a set of reduced hammer and trigger spring sets and I was wondering if any of you had used them on the 22 cal guns, they work great on the vaqueros but no one I know has tried them on the single six revolvers

The problem with 22's is that it takes more hammer strike to set them off than your standard centerfire primer.  They need a strong hammer spring to be reliable.   You can smooth the action and lighten the springs a little but your limiter is the 22 caliber round.

Wolff springs work fine on single sixes and wrangler.  Use a 19 pound, or 21 pound spring.  Test it with a 22 you took apart and dumped the powder.  
polish the spur some and the sides of the hammer and frame.  
it’ll do them wonders.  
I’ve done 2 single sixes and 3 wranglers of mine.

Thanks Ed, I was wondering about the hammer spring weight, I was going to use the 40oz trigger spring but the hammer was the big question
