I have a Single Six 32 with a 9.5" barrel. In nice condition, maybe 95%. No box or paperwork.
Any idea on value?

I am going to say about $850 . I am going to an auction this saturday there are 2 there . Both are 5 1/2 inch barrels one with rear sights and one without . Online bidding is going on right now and they are both above $400 now . I am going to the auction for the gun with sights .

I just purchased one on GB a few months ago for $605. ( specifically looking for a 9.5” barrel) plus shipping and tax.

There was a 9.5” .32 Mag Single Six at Dury’s in San Antonio late last week. Seems to me it was priced at around $900. Nice looking gun but I don’t know if it had box/papers..

The 5 1/2" with fixed sight #SSM5F is a very rare bird with that barrel length. Even if you don't want it, don't let it go too cheap!

You know, maybe I should look at a gun like this instead of a lipsey baby vaquero single seven which is unobtanium for a reasonable price right now. This one could get a handsome front sight, remove the barrel banner, some nice CCH on the frame and a rust blue on the rest, maybe some grip work or replacement and it would be a fine custom.

Question for you, if a guy wanted to convert that frame to a flat top, is there a big enough gap between the top of the top strap and the rear sight hole so it won’t get removed?

It was in xlnt condition, but in a plastic ruger box, not an old orange cardboard box. No paperwork. I was fine with that, as I wanted to convert it to Bisley, and added a Leupold dual dovetail mount and scope. It now matches my bigger hunting guns, so the feel is similar. Perfect as a shooter

You know, that SS, with a 9.5” barrel is fairly rare, and desirable. Start it at auction at a price you would be satisfied with, and let it go. It may bring more than you think, especially if it’s the only one listed, and two people are interested. If nothing else, you will get your minimum bid, and it’s sold.

I Did buy the gun . I got it for $550 has the box, all the paper work. The gun is super nice , a very thin "turn line " It seems to have been made in 1984 according to the date on the owners manual . does that jive ? I am going to try to post a photo if I can figure out how to do it . There were several Blackhawks there that I thought sold cheap , all .357s .

Good buy!

No, 1984 was when the .32 was first introduced. It's been added to the gun.

The .32 Vaquerito (fixed sights) wasn't introduced until 2002.

The 5 1/2" model was introduced 12/17/15 by Davidson's.
