Brute, are the sights on your SS fairly well regulated at 45'?

Where do I file a complaint. All these stocks are beautiful. So now I have to spend my hard-earned money on some new ones for my $179.99 Wrangler? Itís not fair.

Those look great! I am waiting for the standard rosewood to come off back order to go on my black wrangler.

I'm a little different. I've ordered two different set of grips from Altamont. While they look terrific, they are thicker than I like. The original black plastic grips work for me.

Same with the grips from Ruger, they are thick also. On Altamont's website they call them "classic". My single ten came with "gunfighter" grips, I think that's the same as what Altamont calls "slim".

I've been wanting to get a set (or three) of Altamont "slim" grips, but the ones I want have been "out of stock" for the last 3+ months.

I'm into function over looks and these grips do both, given Wood Grain Lotto in the looks department. Nothing wrong with the original grip, my hands needed a handle with more girth and a textured grip that was similar..

I called Ruger parts and ordered a set of rosewood slim grips with the medallion. The slim grips were not listed on the shopruger site.

NICE! I need to call them and get a new pawl for my Single Ten...can't find them on the normal gun parts sites. At least not on Brownells or MidwayUSA. No luck trying to find it on the google either, but that doesn't surprise me, since google is anti-2A.

If anyone knows were I can find a Single Ten pawl, Ruger p/n KXR00705, let me know...thanks in advance.

I bought a set of silver/black grips from ShopRuger.com, to put on my Single Ten, but I don't really care for them, because they are thick. So, I put them on my new Burnt Bronze Wrangler...still don't care for how thick they are, but they are much better than the standard plastic grips that it came with.

I also bought a used Single Six recently. It got a little guffed up in shipping, but the beauty of stainless, it polished out nice with scotchbrite pads (green to start and blue finish).

Cowpokey, make sure you ask for the "slim" grips. I had tried to order them using my 20% off but they are not available from that offer.

Given being a first fixed gun sight I've ever shot, be patient, and yes their is a sweet blade and tunnel spot, and then a finger trigger placement and squeeze learning curve. I'm doing a shorter distance, but it's dialing in just fine. I see it has more potential with good ammo for a good reach, but I'm not there yet. Safe shooting

So Cowpokey, what do you think of that new Single-Six? Pretty nice, aren't they?

I like it a lot! If I had gotten one of them sooner, I wouldn't have bothered getting the Bearcats...will still be getting another Wrangler or two, just because.
