It would need a shorter pawl, to my line of thinking. I've always wondered why they weren't done with more than six shots. There is enough material in the cylinder to do it.

Description for Item # 196637439

Ruger eight shot 22LR or 22Mag. replacement single six cylinders. These are drop in cylinders with no modification necessary. Borchardt Rifle Corp. has been producing Ruger replacement cylinders for 10 years. The 8 shot cylinders are a new item. Free Shipping Any questions call (575) 535-2923 or visit our new web site at brcrifles.com. Use web search not your search engine for now.

I was always under the impression cylinders have to be fitted, in the discription the seller claims they are " Drop In " not sure about that part. 8 shot sure would be nice. ps

Yeah, it is quite frequently necessary to "trim" the front of the gas ring to install a non-original cylinder in a Single-Six . . . and many are too short, as well.

And I seriously wonder about the pawl question, too.

:?

Wouldn't the gun then become a "Single-Eight"? I like the idea of an 8-rd cylinder. I imagine they'll drop in OK, but I have questions about the timing. Do these cylinders come with a pawl made to their specs?

3rd one seems to be a .17. Be nice if I could get a .17 Mach2 8 cylinder. Ah....to dream a dream. 8)

I have always wondered why Ruger never made the Single Six (Single Eight?) in 8 shot.

The manufacturer seems to do a lot of specialty design work with firearms. Here is a link:

The new cylinder seems to be a normal item for them.

I have no personal experience with this firm.

TRADITION...................That is why they didn't make a 8 shot. High Standard made a single action looking -- double action 9 shot revolver. It was a very good piece. S&W has a few years back started making a 10 shot in thier 617. The High Standard just didn't sell, although a much better idea than a single action six shot. TRADITION is why Rugers have sold gobs of them.

It wouldn't be a "SIX GUN" anymore. Whoever heard of a eight gun or a 9 or 10 gun either. It is part of the American West TRADITION.

I have a US Firearms 12/22. I haven't had it all that long, so I haven't even shot it yet. As you know their fit and finish are second to none, and it is absolutly georgous.

Midway sells the cylinders under the "Story" name. One review on one of the .17 conversion cylinders from 2008 was positive.

Story Machine became Borchardt Rifle Corp. Story made steel ejector housings for our Rugers then expanded things a bit.
