Here I have a lightly used pre-conversion Ruger Single Six .22 cal revolver with 5-1/2” barrel. The 21-4xxxx serial number indicates a manufacture date of roughly 1972. This trusty six gun appears to have been carried quite a bit but shot very, very little -- just look at how LIGHT the track mark is on the cylinder! It has some holster wear and bangs and bruises from being carried (a lot) and used (only a little!), but it’s a Ruger, so you know what kind of quality went into making it. The bluing is still in great shape where it doesn’t show the usual holster wear. I wish it were a convertible, but it will only come with the .22LR cylinder (still will fire .22 short, .22 long AND .22LR ammo). The right wood grip is darker than the left, but this is a shooter/user, not a collector or a safe queen. There are nicks and a gouge on the base of the right grip, corner wear and a nick in the finish on the trigger guard, and assorted other light use and wear marks typical of a gun that spent a lot of time in a holster (especially at the end of and underneath the ejector rod housing), but surprisingly, the bluing on the left side of the barrel (another usual high-wear spot) really isn’t that bad! The cylinder has very little forward-back play which is also indicative of an exceptionally low round count. Drift adjustable rear sight.

This is a consignment; the owner shot it the day before he brought it in and says it is very accurate. I have not test-fired this pistol personally, but it passes every function test I have conducted with flying colors. Based on its’ condition and my function testing, I see no reason it wouldn’t function flawlessly under live-fire conditions as well.

Please review ALL of my photos and feel free to let me know if you have any questions – I’ll be happy to answer them for you.

When you WIN an auction, you are responsible for following through with payment. Please complete your research and be certain that you are able to pay for the item BEFORE you bid. If you decide to back out of a winning bid for ANY reason, you WILL be left negative feedback (as required by GunBroker in order to start the Final Value Fee refund process) – you also risk having your account suspended. The simple solution is to simply follow through with your purchases and only bid when you TRULY intend to buy.

Please note that all firearms we offer for sale on GunBroker are also available for sale in our retail store; we reserve the right to end any GunBroker listing if it does not have a bid. However, firearms that receive a bid on GunBroker will be pulled from our sales floor and are reserved for the high bidder of the GunBroker auction – these firearms will no longer be available for sale in our store. So, if you WANT an item I am offering, I strongly suggest you put a bid in NOW to make sure we don’t sell it at retail and pull the listing from GunBroker.

PLEASE be sure to look through ALL of our detailed photos of the gun so you can make your own assessments of condition -- photos say MUCH MORE than I can put into words!

No warranty expressed or implied on used firearms. All sales of firearms are AS IS and are FINAL – NO RETURNS will be accepted. For your own safety, please have your local gunsmith inspect any used firearm you purchase BEFORE shooting it.
