Not having both in front of me, does the Single-Ten have a larger ejector rod than the Single-Six? I have no trouble ejecting with my stock Single-Ten, and am wondering what the point is of the larger button.

Thanks for sharing that. There's no reason they won't work on the Blackhawks as well. They're all the same length except the 5" rod on 10" barreled Blackhawks.

But the ridge around the cavity on the front surface is a little uncomfortable for your finger for lots of shooting and ejecting cases. I use Colt rods for that reason.

No it doesn't.
Yeah these are a little overkill for .22s. The larger headed rods are more useful for larger calibers that take more oomh to push out 6 large cases when tight. And they look a little out of proportion on a .22. I prefer the Colt .22 size heads. You can still find them even though the guns haven't been made for many years.

They are simply Colt style rod ends. I have one on a Bearcat and my custom Single Six. Neither look to me to be out of proportion but of course we all have opinions.

I own several single sixes, blackhawks, redhawks, wranglers, et al. This looks to me like a solution to a problem that doesn't exist.

So let me get this straight. You buy an economy version from Ruger and then you start adding aftermarket parts. Some really good financial sense there.

I suspect that most buyers are picking one up to swap out the factory ejector rod because it has a plastic button.

Did you check it with a magnet? Haven't seen a plastic factory ejector button yet.

If a magnet doesn't stick to your ejector rod, what model is it?

Got the magnet out today. Definitely non-ferrous ejector rod button. Bit of texture to it makes it seem plastic to me but it could be an aluminum or zinc casting I suppose.

The rod must be steel, did you check it too?

How does the knob attach to the rod, threaded or riveted?

Rod is definitely stainless steel. I haven't disassembled it, but the ejector button is probably a press fit on the rod.

I only have blue Ruger crescent shaped ejector rods. And the crescent buttons are steel.

I' sure the rods are not pressed into the button, especially if the button is plastic. The rod is inserted and riveted (the end of the rod is mashed over like a rivet). I've taken them apart in the past.
