Welcome to the Forum!
If I was at home, I'd look up the gun but since I'm in Idaho right now,, I'm not much help. I'm sure someone will chime in soon.
Basically just because the Blue Book doesn't have info, doesn't mean much. The serial numer sounds correct for that model.
I don't think you have anything special except an excellent shooter! Shoot & enjoy!

dcb, welcome to the Forum,,,,,,as for the specifice model,BY serial number, that is NOT broken down in the 'Blue book...you have a "new model
' and as such look there, the difference is finish material (blue steel versus 'stainless' that will be the pricing difference, like distributor specials, MOST of the time, they are NOT shown...gotta get this info from 'RENE' as Flatgate says, and even then the prices will be in the values cited by other collectors and only if something "special; rare, etc.....AND on an "average of what other collectors may spend for this item...."

Not really. The New Model Single-Six collector would certainly have one just to "fill out" the collection.

The real "collectible" versions have less common features, i.e. 4-5/8" barrels, "star or arrow" markings on the lower portion of the cylinder frame, cylinders with firing pin grooves, mag cylinders with flutes, "old model" style boxes, etc., etc.

If I'm going shooting and want to include the .22 LR the FIRST gun out of the toybox is my stainless Single-Six.....
