New single 7 ?

Post by Neezer »

Seems like a new one. I haven't seen any news on a stainless Bisley S7 with fixed sights, which is what it claims to be.

Hmmmm , not for me.
Big ole Bisley grip, short barrel, and fixed sights in 327 ?
Zika baby for sure. Sounds like a bunch of mismatched concepts to me.
Exactly what is this gun going to be good at ?

Selling to those who think it's a good idea. The marketing folks convinced the beancounters and so we get it! :mrgreen: :wink: :mrgreen:

I would remove the bisley grip and add a birdshead.

Is this it?

Nope . . . birdshead. :?

How 'bout this?

https://ruger.com/products/newModelSing ... /8164.html

Better, but the barrel's too long.

Searched Ruger's site for 8168 and got no response. :(

FOUND IT!

Why wouldn't you buy a model 8163 then? Same barrel length, fixed sights and birdshead grip.

True about the 8163. I was trying to say if it was mine that I would have to change the gf. I could find a project for the takeoff bisley gf I’m sure.

8163’s are turning into hens teeth…just like the 22/22M Whitebird & Blackbird, All built with the standard hammer.

I see a lot of the new 8168 being turned into Birdshead, and no near impossible search for the Bisley hammer.

Better acquire a Birdshead Gripframe from Midway while they have them in stock.

I wanted a stainless Bisley Single 7, so I went ahead and made my own. I wish Ruger would quit making these .32's as I keep telling myself I don't need anymore of them and then when they come out I want one. :?

Didn't they do something like this years ago and it was nicknamed baby vaquero

The one that I am thinking of that I feel is similar that they call baby vaquero is the ruger KRB-24FW. It was a 4 5/8 bisley 22lr with fixed sights and engraved cylinder

Guess I was lucky to get my birdshead S7 in 2019.

Anything Ruger made on their small frames with completely fixed sights (not rear sight windage adjustable only) have been called Baby Vaqueros.

However the .32 H&R Single Six with fixed sights, blue and stainless, were actually marketed by Ruger as the Vaquerito in magazine ads.
