I have always been a big fan of the Ruger Single Six and pretty much all of my little game hunting is done with one. The County Shooting Club has a league for 22 handguns. The hitch with the Single Six is that you're only allowed to load your gun one time prior to firing. Once the mag goes into the auto it stays there until the 10 round brace is over. With DA revolvers the cylinder stays closed and with cowboy guns the loading gate stays closed. It all has to do with safety and I agree with the safety first mentality completely but would love to compete with all of those autos with their Red Dot sights using my Single Six with it's irons. Enter the Single 10. I looked at one through a glass case but was pressed for time so didn't ask to handle it. I did NOT like the look of the High Viz sights at all and I cant see that you have any other option in regards to the sights. Are they as bad as they look? Also I have heard rumors that the lock up isn't as tight as the Single Six and they splatter a little lead from time to time. I read that on one of the million forums out there and obviously don't know the poster.
Do any of you guys have a Single 10? I would love to hear what you have to say about them. Specifically I would like to know about cylinder lock up and the sights. Are the notches in the cylinder and the catch that fits in the notches when locked up exactly like the ones on the Single Sixes? The same poster that mentioned the loose fit said that the catch looked like it was stamped rather than machined. I know that I can look at pictures etc. but I would much rather hear it from you guys. Also would Single Six sights fit on a Single 10?
I have a couple of 22 auto handguns that are drawing dust. Depending on what you guys have to say I may trade the two of them for a Single Ten.
