Ruger builds stuff in batches, I'm told they haven't built any single actions (except the Wranglers) in awhile. They might make more soon, or not. I don't know who schedules the runs of thisorthat, but whatever's making them the most money at that time is sure to get more attention. I haven't seen a new one in a fairly long time, so they might be getting ready to make another run of them, and Blackhawks, which I rarely see, either. I have a stainless Single Six that I'm very fond of, it's a real shooter.

I think they're concentrating too much on their fantastic plastic pistols, personally, but I'm old school and like steel and walnut, so I might be out of touch.
They are still listed on Ruger's website, so I assume they are still in the rotation and, eventually, in production. I kinda wish I had a copy of their manufacturing schedule, but so do all their competitors.

what about a used ruger single six? built very robust and single action only means that a used one is highly unlikely to be shot-out. ruger will make right any problems.

Saw a stainless version in the local Sportsman’s Warehouse two months ago. The only one I’ve seen in a very long time.

My brother's had mine for 20 years or so, just like my SP-101 .357 Magnum. When I need a single-action, convertible .22 revolver I have a New Frontier to fall back on.

I have a Ruger Single-Six (stainless, unfluted cylinder, rosewood grips, 17 HMR) only 300 mfg.
Never even catalogued. I ordered it from, CDNN Liquidators - years ago for a 'song'.

I also got a new Single-Six, 22 Convertable from a friend pawnbroker - Mr. Money!

I kinda fell into the opportunity to buy both, and I kept them because I found the
Single-Action Revolver feels natural and shoots straight arrow - in spite of ME!
