I had a 6 1/.2 " stainless for a couple of years. Friend wanted it real bad so I sold it at a good price. Right off I knew I'd made a mistake. But I went out and bought a new 5 1/2" stainless to take the pain away.
The Ruger Single Six is, imo, as good a single action .22 revolver as yoju'll find. And it's built like a tank! This is the 5.5":
