Ruger Flatgate 40461 Think its pretty early but not sure.





If I read it correctly, I believe your Single Six dates to 1956.

My Ruger New Model Super Blackhawk .44 Magnum shown below with
some of my favorite holsters Left to Right:

DeSantis Dual Angle Hunter (Front view) and 2nd from Left (Back view).
Very handy for wearing cross-draw, like when carrying a rifle slung over
right shoulder.

3rd from Left: Oklahoma Leather Slim Jim and cartridge belt, Buffalo
Bore ammo, Solingen steel blade, handle & sheath by Phil.

4th from Left: "Keith Style" made by HC (Henry Cassady) Leather
even better than the Lawrence version, if that is possible.

5th from Left: Another Oklahoma Slim Jim, this time in black.

There was a guy on Rugerforum (.com) who collected the early Single Sixes with the Micro sights like yours, screen name "Americal." I believe he has passed away. He lived fairly close to me, and we corresponded some but never met in person.

Only have two, a Single Six convertible and a Super Blackhawk. I did use the Super Blackhawk to shoot IHMSA silhouette back in the mid Eighties so it has seen a lot of magnum loads. On the other hand, the Single Six has probbly not had the magnum cylinder installed half dozen times in thirty five years.

I only have two now, one is a 1971 Blackhawk in .41 magnum (sights slightly modified by previous owner) and the other is a Lipsey's .44 special, with a SBH hammer. Had a Single Six for years, but in the heat of the moment I swapped it for something I don't remember. Dumb I reckon.

I picked this up last week. The SBH has been my favorite Ruger and my favorite single-action since I was 12 years old. I've had several over the years, an original like this one, and a couple stainless versions. So I was pleased to get this for $550 OTD, it looks like it hasn't been handled much, let alone shot.

Now, I haven't forgotten the finger trauma that square trigger guard will inflict with magnum loads, so what I'm really showing off is my new .44 Special!

I own a pile but these three are likely my favorites.

A Flattop 38 WCF.



A 3-screw 44 Special.





A 3-screw Bisley 44 Magnum.
