Single-Six Question

Can you shoot .22 shorts, .22 longs, and .22 long rifle in the Single-Six? I am considering the purchase of one and was just wondering. I already have an old Mk1 .22 pistol and would like a revolver to keep it company.

Yes, in a .22 lr revolver that is standard, but with the shorter rounds you will have to scrub the chambers in the cylinder free of lead deposits or the Lr ronds may not chamber.

Yes you can as countrygun said. That's only in the 22LR cylinder not the magnum cylinder.

I used to shoot 22 Short HPs all the time in my old Single Six. Very under-rated squirrel round, by the way. Got to keep that cylinder clean, though, with 22 Shorts, as country gun says or you'll have trouble feeding the LRs.

Thanks folks. I probably wouldn't shoot shorts very often but it's good to know I can.

Yep I shoot them all the time in mine and havent had an issue one. But just dont forget to clean the chamber of the cylinder well to prevent build up of grime and possible leading.

POA will be different or you will need to sight in then remember the sight change each time you change ammo.
