I came upon a piece of history....


Recommended Posts

While at a LGS here in Northern AZ something caught my eye, now that in of itself is nothing new but I do have a fondness for single actions.  This time it was a Ruger Single Six convertible, 22 LR/22 Mag, 6 .5 length barrel, complete with original black box, instruction manual and that cute little red bag with the gold draw string.  This gun dated back to 1962.  It took me back to the days of hunting with Dad,  with close friends and the many nights we spent around the camp fire. I have looked for quite sometime, I have Dad's original 22 LR version of this in a shorter barrel from 1962 but wanted another but with the interchangeable cylinder. 

 

The Single Six was my introduction into everything single action, I guess it was kind of a gateway drug.  Together over the years dad and I collected many more Single actions and there was always a bit of excitement in that phone call describing what homeless pistol, rifle or shotgun had followed one of us home.  So here is to a era of $69.50 Single Six 22's and all the memories and values that were shared and taught by dads of that era.   Lets continue the traditions...and yes it it  no longer homeless.

Nice find.

 

I have my dad's Single Six w/both cylinders (and the cute red bag w/gold draw string).  But it's circa 1980's and stainless.  The only handgun he ever bought/owned.
