Found mine for $180+ tax, and took it home yesterday.. REALLY nice gun. I had been considering a Heritage for quite a while, which is a few dollars cheaper, but its also not built with the precision of a Ruger. So now i have a SA plinker in .22LR, to go alongside its semi auto brothers at the range, 22/45 and SR22, and 10/22 .
I really look forward to spending some time with it, and attempt to polish up my admittedly weak SA "skills"..

I will say , and no one here will contradict I'm sure, that whatever the platform, Ruger knows how to build a .22 LR firearm.. At a moderate price point, no one does it any better, and their service after sale is legendary. Found that out first hand when I messed up a Ruger with my own clumsiness, and they fixed it 100% like new, totally free, and were perfectly gracious. . Other companies might have stated "not our fault" and charged for the repair.. Ruger engenders brand loyalty.. For me at least.. bob.
Agree on the Wrangler. It's a stupid good deal.

That's a thing of beauty! Can't beat a hand-held small cannon!
I'm guessing the 'Wheel-Kit' is sold separately?
----------

Thanks Amishman44!

Yes wheel kit sold seperately!, this project completed in 1999 and its been a really fun SA.

This gun started life as a 454, the cylinder was re-linebored to a larger caliber. Its a tad bit forward heavy (with thicker barrel) so only use moderate to low recoil loads(still either heavy bullets or lighter bullets).

When I used to run full house loads i personally always needed a standard (lighter) barrel to get a bit of muzzle flip, which helps me with felt recoil).

Never liked a gun shoved almost straight back into my wrist/arm, for general shooting or hunting.

I secured a slightly taller front ramp for easier zeroing in.

Sounds like some of you could benefit from joining SASS (Single Action Shooting Society). We get to shoot Single Actions a lot. Yes, they are fun, and on top of the revolvers, we shoot lever action rifles, and shotguns. Come join the fun.

I too love single action revolvers. I have several including two Bearcats, a Single 10 and a New Model Blackhawk in .45 Colt.

I had tried a new Heritage Rough Rider in .22LR but the finish was very rough and it spewed rounds everywhere except where I was aiming. Some folks have good luck with them but not me.

Awhile back I read in Gun Tests magazine about the Chiappa SAA 1873 Buntline, (12 bbl.), 22LR revolver. They gave it an A rating so I was intrigued. I checked it out and for well under $200.00 I went for one.

I know some will scoff but I was pleasantly surprised when I received it. The finish is very nice. With adjustable sights, it was easy to dial in and with its 12 barrel, its like shooting a small rifle one handed.

Maybe like the Rough Riders these are hit and miss in quality but my example is very nice and I really like it and glad I went for it.

I had an old set of faux stag grips for a Ruger Blackhawk and with some fairly easy modifications, I got them to fit nicely.

I love all single action revolvers and love shooting them more than any of my handguns.

I too like single actions, but don't prefer snubbies. My single 6 has the 9.5" barrel and the Super Blackhawk, 10.5" both for silhouette shooting.
