    I picked up a RUGER SINGLE-SIX WIN.22 RF MAG. 3 screw .It had no cylinders. Called Ruger and they said that with the safety upgrade they can make both cylinders for $115.00. I figured by the time I ship I will have $300.00 into the whole gun. I guess it was a decent deal after I get it back. The gun is NRA 85% condition. No scratches of gouges. The bluing is good except 1/2 inch of holster wear at the muzzle. The frame anodizing is gray. Ruger wants $130.00 to re blue it which would put it over to $400.00. I think I may leave the finish as is.
    Now Ruger did not tell me this but is the mag cylinder non fluted? I figured by the time I bought a correct cylinder and have a smith fit and time it it would be more than Rugers factory 2 cylinders.

    You can probably buy a real nice all original Single-Six Mag marked gun for about $450 or so. If it were me, I would be patient and look for a Magnum cylinder in about 85% or so condition to match the rest of the gun. A large % of the time they will drop right in. If you are not comfortable checking the timing, etc. for safety purposes yourself be sure to have good Smith check it out for you but its possible that it would not even need to be timed. Its good to know the overall length of your ""cylinder window"" when looking at the OAL of replacement cylinders. A cylinder that's a little too long can be fitted fairly easily by removing a little of the gas ring bearing surface. This is JMHO of course.

    I am sure the one that they would install would be, the New Model Mag cylinders were non-fluted. The original type for your gun was fluted.
