Box says Model 10621, 22LR/WinMag. You really have to look hard to see just a faint turn line on the 22LR cylinder and I can't see one on the 22 Mag. Test fired 02/27/2010. $466.00 out the door with 2 boxes of CCI 22 WMR HP's. Don't know if it was a good deal or not but it was a revolver I wanted. Took all my "mad" money so I will have to wait a while for a holster and new grips, hate those black rubber grips. A mate to my blue Single 10.

Beautiful revolver. Do you have a particular holster style in mind? I made a leather cross-draw holster for my 5.5 inch Single Six and am very happy with it. Holster making is not an expensive hobby I have found, and materials run me about $4 a piece. Now the time involved is a whole different matter LOL..what....$1 an hour if I did it for a living maybe .....Don

Think I want a standard western holster not a crossdraw, I guess maybe along this line.

Good gun an even a better buy!

Used older Ruger walnut grips (pre lamenated) is the ticket. In the classified on this forum, e-bay and gunbroker and very reasonable. Save the money for the holster rig:

I will always suggest a lined holster for gun protection. Rough surfaces like the inside of an unlined holster collect grit from outdoors and act like sand paper on your new blue finish.

Here's a step up, reasonably priced maker, Reddog Leather. Read about him at this link; this is the Ringo model: http://www.ebay.com/itm/Reddog-Leather-Cowboy-Western-Holster-and-Belt-the-Ringo-rig-/360493604620

I prefer his authentic money belt style of one piece folded and stitched; more flexible belt, much more comfortable and less money. Lined holster w/o the bling saves money too and he makes them for single sixes. My double rig was a little over $150 and top quality!

I have a ? about grips, is the grip frame on my Single 6 and 10 what is called the XR3-red frame? As you can tell I know very little about these revolvers except I like um!

Steve,
That's correct, it's the most common Ruger SA grip size. All the single sixes, regular Blackhawks (not the flat tops) and short barrel SBHs use it.

Thanks, ShopRuger told me to order #70046.

Don't know why the 1st owner of my Single 6 sold/traded it in, that thing is dead on at approx.7 yds. Maybe they didn't like SA. Shoots a lot better than I can. Went down to a neighbor and shot it off a homemade rest, drew a approx 1" circle on a paper plate for a target. Now I'm not a marksman but most were in the circle until it got so hot i was getting sweat in my eyes. I shoot 22mag, 22lr and even some 22shorts and could not tell the difference, all seemed to shoot to the same place. The shorts and 22mags were some very old ammo, the 22lr about a year old. I'm a very happy man.

That's the correct size. They are current production laminated wood however, if that matters to you.

Thats what's on my S10 too, was kind of wanting some solid walnut grips if I could figure out where and which ones to order.

Ruger doesn't supply them any longer. Three or four pair listed here:

And a couple here:

Don't get these, they're for the Super Blackhawk and listed incorrectly:

Need to move the target out to 25 Yards.... That will tell how it really shoots :) . Nice gun, you are really going to enjoy it! :D 8) .

Will do as soon as it cools off some here in MS. And ammo gets a little more plentiful. I'm looking forward to more shooting. Need to make me a better rest, know of any plans that can be made with hand tools?
