ruger just introduced a nine shot 22 mag single action. my first thought was why wouldn't they just make an extra cylinder for the single ten. :uhm:

    They are trying to improve the Single Six? 3 and 4 shot increase, I suppose that's a big selling point to someone.

    If they put it on a Super Blackhawk frame they could probably get 20 shots.:roll:

    Didn't High Standard produce a 9-shot .22 revolver about 50 years ago? The LeMat revolver had a 9-shot cylinder, plus one 16 gauge smoothbore barrel!

    All those bolt notches are ugly!

    I'll stick with six.

    The mechanics wouldn't work. The Single 10's designed to advance the cylinder 3.6 degrees every time you cock it and the single 9 has to rotate it a full 4.0.
    Can't say as I'm interested in either though.

    Wouldn't that be 36 degrees? 36 x 10 = 360 full circle

    Ruger missed the boat again. They never should have made the single-ten and the single-nine should have been a convertible from the get go.

    I'll probably get flamed for saying it but I think Ruger has gone down some since Bill Ruger passed. Sure they are doing well business wise and their products are still of very high quality it just seems to me that a lot of their new products are poorly thought out and not promoted properly. Ol' Bill wouldn't have let his company tool up to produce two different guns when they could produce one for a fraction of the cost that would sell just as well.

    He is probably turning over in his grave over what they did to his Mark II also.

    It's needs another cylinder in .22lr, and if they are trying to compete with the Taurus 9 shot, they need to price a little more competitively. That's a lot of money for a .22!!

    Mentioning High Standard reminded me that I own an Iver Johnson 8 shot revolver made back in the1940's. It is a top break-open revolver and single-shot only. Looks like I'll have to go poking around the back of the safe and give it some shooting time at the range Monday. I forgot I even had it until I read that thread about other 8+ shot revolvers. Thanks for waking me up!

    How can it be an 8 shot and a single shot? Do you mean single action?

    Anyway I have a S & W Model 317 Airlite. It is an eight shot double action .22 revolver. It has a three inch barrel with adjustable sights. It weighs less than 10 ounces. It is so handy to carry and I don't even notice it on my hip that I carry it over either my Ruger MK II or my Single Six. In fact I took the LR cylinder out of my Single Six and put the magnum cylinder in, probably to stay.

    (Luke 11:21 KJV) When a strong man armed keepeth his palace, his goods are in peace:
    (Luke 22:36 KJV) Then said he unto them, But now, he that hath a purse, let him take it, and likewise his scrip: and he that hath no sword, let him sell his garment, and buy one.

    The single ten is a great seller. So would be the single nine, if I could get them in.

    Was it called a "Double-Nine"? Or was that an H&R?

    You are correct, I meant to say Single-Action not single shot. Thanks for catching it.

    If I were going to buy a SAA clone, I'd go for Cimarron's "Model P" in .45 long Colt.

    Teach, I am thinking that they did. I do remember back in the 1960's my Dad bought my Mom a .22 revolver for personal protection. Now this 9 shot .22 revolver was purchased from the local Western Auto store in NC, and although it was stamped Revelation, witch was a Western Auto exclusive store brand, I am thinking now that you mentioned it, maybe the gun itself was made by High Standard, for the Western Auto stores.. My dad let us shoot that gun on the weekends sometimes along with our .22 ss rifles... I always liked that little 9 shot revolver, I don't know what ever happened to it, I think when Mom and Dad divorced in the late 1970's Dad sold it.. IIRC also the little 9 shot .22 could fire .22 shorts, longs and long rifles...
