Grandpa's gift to Grandson
My Father in Law recently gave a Ruger Single Six to my son, among some other great rifles and a shotgun. My son is really into shooting and we go at least once a week. A special gift to last a lifetime for sure.
While searching for the history: the serial number listed on the Ruger website says its in this group: 409921 serial range= 1965 "Single-Six Magnum Model Revolver" but the frame is stamped "Ruger .22 CAL (and) "Single Six" below it. On the face of the cylinder the last 3 numbers of the serial number are etched....Its a 6 1/2 inch barrel, blued, with walnut grips. I thought it odd that the serial number is in the "magnum only" group while the frame says .22 CAL. Unless it was a convertible and one of the cylinders is missing???
I am going to do some more research after my son cleans it up a bit and will call customer service for a little history. I just think it is a great gun to give a kid. He has plenty of guns to choose from in this house but nothing compares to a firearm with family history.
