I have an older Single-Six in 22mag. No complaints about accuracy. I've heard good things about the newer models.

I have a real old Single-Six with .22LR and .22Mag cylinders too. Never had a problem with it and it's as accurate as the person holding it is. The only pistol I have in .17HMR is a Contender. Single shot but very accurate. If I was getting a new one I'd get the Single-six with both the 22LR and .22mag all over again. The .17HMR isn't very meat friendly and we're still waiting to see what non lead ammo will come out for it. They already have non lead in both the .22 magnum and long rifle.

First off, they are not that expensive, so you should ultimately have one of each. And to say one over the other is super hard. Both are great and each has it's own good poiints.

I've got a really old one that my dad gave me, I've only shot it once or twice, but he used to hunt grays in the trees with it when he was a kid, so I guess it's accurate enough for that.

My brother has a single six. He has had it for about 15 years. Deadly accurrate. I've seen him shoot ground squirrels on the run. Has both the 22LR and the 22 Mag cylinders but he hardly ever uses the mag. I think the single six is one of the best 22 revolvers on the market.

I have my Grandfather's single six .22LR and .22WMR. Both extremely accurate and perfect for small game and target shooting. Love those guns!Darren

My single Six has taken lots of game and plenty of ground squirrels when I'm bored of the rifles.If you seriously want to hunt with a 22LR I'd say go semi auto like the MKI-MKIII heavy barrel, Buckmark, etc. The fast follow up shots are great on running bunnies!

I have a stainless convertible SS, and love it. I read the Semis are more accurate. Maybe someday...

Dead on! I've owned both the Single Six and the MKIII 22/45 (gave away the Single Six to my best friend and hunting partner for graduating law school and passing the BAR on the 1st try) and as much as I love sixguns, unless you intend to use 22 mags a lot, get the MKIII. A bull barreled MKIII will usually shoots circles around a Single Six and they are about as much fun as you can have with your clothes on.

+2. I love my Buckmark for rabbit hunting. It's really accurate and the quick followup shots do come in handy once in a while, especially when the first shot doesn't do the job and you have to deal with a runner.

Had a single six since Nixon was President and love it. Have never even up-graded it just carry 5 and leave the empty chamber for my safety. Killed more stuff with it than any gun I own it's accurate and fun to shoot.
