    Are you SURE it's a SUPER SINGLE SIX.
    These guns were also sold with ONLY the magnum cylinder

    Greetings All,

    I have a chance to purchase a 3-screw super single six. Oddly, it does not have the .22 LR cylinder. It has the .22 mag instead. The gun is in about 97% condition, no box. Priced at less than $300. (Interesting Ser. # of 555550)

    1. How much does not having the 22 LR cylinder impact the price?

    2. I can get a good vintage 22 LR cylinder for about $100. Would that be worth doing?

    Any insight is appreciated.

    Paul

    Good afternoon Col. As a shooter I use the Lr. cyl. almost exclusively in the single six. If I need anything I can't get from that, I go to centerfire. Having a Lr. cyl. fitted would be my thought. But some like the little magnum.

    I agree that having a LR cylinder is certainly advantageous. I usually shoot LR cartridges the majority of the time. Personally I believe I would try to find another Super Single-Six that already has its original LR & Mag. cylinders fitted to the gun. Unless the gun is priced considerably under $300 you would end up at about the same place price wise after adding a LR cylinder versus getting a gun with its two original cylinders you where you would have a original package with both cylinders numbered to the gun. JMHO of course.

    MUGWUMP is right, there were a few shipped, could be worth writing Ruger to check...only cost 10 bucks.

    That is a good price IMHO. I found one, my first sa, as yours, an old model missing the lr cylinder for about the same price. I am now a big fan of 22 magnum and the exciting muzzle flash. If happen upon a lr cylinder at a reasonable price I may eventually get one but it's not a big deal. It isn't like it's a rare bird, it's just a heckofa lotta fun to shoot. Right now the 22 wmr is a lot easier to find than 22lr anyway. Well worth the nickel a round of fun!
