Just announced: the Ruger Single Nine revolver.
The Single Nine is a single action, 9-shot revolver chambered for the .22 WMRF (aka 22 Magnum and 22 WMR). Â The gun features the classic Ruger styling, stainless steel finish and hardwood grips.
The new revolver weighs in at 39 ounces and has a 6.5″ barrel. Â The rear sight is adjustable and thr front sight is a Williams fiber optic sight that is also adjustable. Â MSRP is $629.
The Single Nine is a nice extension to the Single Six line of handguns Ruger has made for years. Â Previously introduced was the Single Ten, a ten round revolver chambered for the .22 LR cartridge. Â Ruger already makes six-round versions of the gun in .22 Mag, but this is their first nine-rounder.
As is typical with Ruger in recent years, there was no pre-announcement of this gun. Â They simply rolled it out when they were ready to ship. Â I do wonder how many of these guns will be available considering the company’s significant backlog of firearms orders. Â Earlier this year, Ruger ceased taking orders because of the huge backlog.
Sturm, Ruger & Company, Inc. (NYSE: RGR) is proud to announce the RugerÂ® Single-Nineâ„¢, a nine-shot, single-action revolver chambered in .22 Winchester Magnum.
The Single-Nineâ„¢ features a nine-shot cylinder and is constructed from durable satin-finished stainless steel. With a 6.5-inch barrel and smooth, hardwood, “Gunfighter” grips, the Single-Nineâ„¢ is well-balanced and points easily. Williamsâ„¢ fiber optic sights, click-adjustable for both windage and elevation, provide a crisp sight picture that is enhanced with front and rear fiber optic inserts.
“The Single-Nineâ„¢ builds upon the success of the Single-TenÂ®,” remarked Mike Fifer, Ruger President and CEO. “The higher capacity cylinder is sure to please fans of the powerful .22 Magnum cartridge, and the 6.5-inch barrel helps the .22 Magnum reach more of its velocity potential. The trim, “Gunfighter” grips and fiber optic sights make the Single-Nineâ„¢ easy to point and aim,” he continued.
