Cruised through the local shop today and came across a New Model Single Six with a 9 1/2" barrel. Decent shape, no box papers or mag cylinder. White outlined adjustable rear sight and yellow insert front sight. SN 65-46840. Has muzzle wear on the left side and a turn ring, other than that pretty nice. Tell me more about this revolver please. Are they common or hard to find? Also, no warning in the address. Bought it for a shooter and probably in to it a little much at $325, but will serve the purpose. :)

Certainly not rare as Ruger still makes them, no billboard is nice but no mag cylinder detracts from the value. I'd say you paid on the upper end of reasonable, but not out of line.

I have been on the lookout for a 9.5" shooter for awhile. I don't care much about the 22mag cylinder at this time. I like the sights on this one. They don't seem to be standard NR9 sights, but I may be wrong. Nonetheless, these sights really appeal to me. I have had a couple of "Star" models in the past but never shot them. This one will be my 22 plinker. Now to get to the range. :)

FWIW, I just bought a new NR-9L for $399 in the Tri Cities. My guess is stuff is higher in your part of the state, so I think it was a decent buy. Bottom line for me is that if I am willing to pay the price, then it is a good buy.

I agree with Steve. Those 9-1/2" Single-Sixes are GREAT SHOOTERS!

I have a "customized" Old Model:

A "star marked" New Model:

And a 9-1/2" .32 mag.

All are really fun to shoot.
