One of William Batterman Ruger’s best-timed and most ingenious introductions was the Ruger Single-Six.
In the world of Ruger collectors, these rare factory-engraved guns are some of the most collectible of all, and they tell a fascinating story of the early years at Sturm, Ruger & Co.
The Ruger Single-Six came along at the height of popularity for all things Western in the 1950s, and it continues to sell today.
Like virtually all Rugers, the Single-Six single-action revolver is almost impossible to wear out. The basic design has been around for 66 years, and these revolvers continue to sell well each year.
Watch another segment of American Rifleman TV's "I Have This Old Gun" as it recounts the history of the Ruger Single-Six.
After Colt’s discontinued the Single Action Army, William B. Ruger, Sr., brought out his Single-Six in .22 Long Rifle.
