Single six 22 magnum

Hello everyone! I知 a new user and I知 looking forward to the forum!

I have a question about my Single six convertible. I recently purchased it and the 22 magnum cylinder did not come with it. I called Ruger and they said because of its age, I would have to send it in to have a new 22 LR and a 22 WMR cylinder refitted to the pistol.

Does anyone have any experience with this?

Thanks! Coolmod69

Welcome to the forum from NC. I assume you bought it used and that is why no magnum cylinder. And yes to get a new cylinder they will need the gun so that the fit and timing will be correct.

Yes, Ruger will have to fit a cylinder to your gun. After fitting, it will bear part of the guns serial number to identify the fact that it has been fitted to that specific frame.

Do a forum search and you will find some members bought a 22 mag cylinder that worked with no fitment required. YMMV

Ruger will do it, probably not for free, and you'll get it back in about 10 days all set to go.

Does yours have the transfer bar? Welcome from South Carolina, by the way.

The reason I asked was because I have an unconverted 3 screw that I'd love to have a magnum cylinder for but if I send it to Ruger, they will automatically add the transfer bar and I want to keep it original.

My understanding is that Ruger will return the original parts of your three-screw allowing YOU to convert it back to its original condition. Any liability is then yours alone.

Others may offer their actual experience.

Yeah, nice to have the choice of 22LR or Magnum to shoot. I just picked up a sweet Single Six stainless, but it was missing the Magnum cylinder. I can't complain because the gun was like new and the price was excellent. I'd probably never shoot the WMR load anyway. Best of luck to the OP.

This is correct or at least WAS.

BUT. If it’s already been back and shows up again with old parts they will NOT return them.

It’s a risk.
