I scored a stainless 6.5" barrel model Ruger Super Single

Six Convertible with the .22 WMR cylinder for only $200.

The weapon is pristine ['bout 98%]; but without box and

doc's. Do you folks think that Ruger would sell me a

generic factory box, if I requested one~? Thanks in

advance for your replies.

I have the single six .32 H&R Magnum version. I saw it in a pawn shop and just couldnt leave without it. It fires great, feels good weight wise and was accurate.

Aladan, if you can't talk Ruger into selling just the box, I would seriously consider searching EBay and the various auction sites available. With today's economy, I'm betting that somebody would be eager to sell an empty box for reasonable price! Good luck.

Well, just take all the great comments below and multiply by a dozen or so and you'll have my score on this gun. I just can't say enough about it. I have the .22LR-.22Mag and it is just about the finest, funnest shooting-est gun I own. I have the adjustable sights and they are great. Well, if you have one you know what I mean, and if you don't you should just get one and enjoy.

Man,that stainless Sixer in the photo looks fine.

It's pourin' rain here, so i'll just pull my Sixer out and rub 'er down with some oil and do some dry-fire exercises...

Y'ih know sumptin'... Lookin' at my statement above and thinkin' about it... I can see why humans-male & female love

gunz...heh-heh...They trigger a certian part of our brains' electronics somewhere in the sexual-survival-tribal area and the results are acquiring only the best of, or making the best

of, and becoming the best at, the use of...arms...a mate,hah!

And family... Hot damn, I love that li'l Sixer.

She's like my wife: sexy, a li'l hot-shot and dangerous if not

handled right...

The .22 model has 2 cylinders: .22 long rifle and .22 Winchester magnum rimfire. The .17 HMR is a totally separate model from the .22 model. May I make some suggestions: 1. Get the stainless steel model 2. Get the 6 1/2" barrel 3. Get the .22 model 4. Buy lots of shells at Wallmart 5. Don't ever throw the box away 6. Buy a nice leather holster right away - helps to prevent scratches 7. Don't ever sell it

I have had a .22 Single Six for a few years now and I love it. I had a red dot scope on it for a while, but even with the adjustable sights, it is the most accurate handgun i have ever had. I use CCI Blazer .22LR almost exclusively which I bought a bunch of at $.99/box several years ago. That ammo sometimes fails to fire in my Taurus Model 94, but it never fails to fire in the Single Six. I'm not crazy about the chore of loading and emptying a single action revolver, and I have thought about selling it a few times, but I don't think I ever will sell it. For what I paid, it is more than worth what I got. It's a great gun.

This was the first handgun I bought when I turned 21. AND YOU CAN'T GO WRONG WITH IT!

If you are looking at the Heritage Rough rider, I think you will be happier with the quality/fit-finish of the Ruger. The rough rider has an annoying safety that is unnessacary on the Ruger due to it's transfer bar system.

The bluing is nice and the action is smooth.

I bought my dad one!
