    I can't wait to get mine & try it out on some Rabbit's during this year's small game hunting, I am loaded up with RF ammo some CCI Stingers & about 500 rds of the Rem Yellow jacket's, hopefully only head shot's with this ammo to save the meat for eating.?

    I got mine in Wyoming in 73, NIB at the LGS, paid 80 frns for it, IIRC. I can't begin to figure the number of rounds down the pipe, but plenty. Dunno the year it was built, and really could care less with effort. Value? It's MINE and I don't care, I'm keeping it until the grass rug is rolled over me. My fave gun locker resident, beyond doubt.

    Shot my brothers 1976 model at 100 yards 2 days ago. 9 out of 10 shots on paper and if I would ever adjust the sights they would all have been where they belong, shooter not the gun. I love it as a beginners trainer, for small game hunting and for silly games like 100 yard shooting. Wasn't even using high speed ammo, CCI Blazer 40 gr standard velocity because I have 4500 rounds of it and it was cheap. 30 years ago when my hands were steady and my eyes were good I shot that gun as accurately as I did my S&W 41 target pistol. You have to love a gun like that.

    I have a couple with 4 5/8" barrels and just love them. Ruger warning is on the bottom of the barrels.

    I keep the 22LR cylinder in one and the .22 WMG cylinder in the other. I have new grips coming for them but here's what they look like right now.

    The 22mag cylinder is the non-fluted one. I sure wish both cylinders were non-fluted as I like that look better.

    Wishing that I hadn't traded mine off a couple of years ago. Oh well, it water under the bridge now I guess.

    I have a flatgate single six that was made in 1954 in 96%-98% condition. It is, without a doubt, the most accurate .22 I have ever owned. The most fun to shoot to. The only other revolver I own that can keep up with it is my 1961 made Colt Python, which is also a 96%-98% gun. If I had to choose which one to keep I'd be hard pressed to choose which one it would be.
