Return of the Ruger New Model Single Six in .32 H&R Magnum
May 07, 2002
Development and Design
Due to popular demand, especially from the fast-growing sport of cowboy action shooting competition, Ruger now offers the .32 H&R Magnum caliber New Model Single Six single-action revolver in four models with blued "color case hardened finish" frame or high-gloss stainless steel. The four choices are blued with the choice of shortened rosewood grips, or stainless steel with simulated ivory grip panels and both finishes are offered with black micarta bird's head grips. All models come with fixed sights, reminiscent of our popular Vaquero single-action revolvers.
Like the original models with adjustable sights that were produced from 1984 to 1997, these New Model variations include the exclusive Ruger transfer bar system. This patented system can help prevent accidental discharges caused by a drop or blow to the hammer. *
* THE FREE RUGER TRANSFER BAR SAFETY CONVERSION FOR ALL RUGER "OLD MODEL" (PRE-1973) SINGLE-ACTION REVOLVERS IS STILL AVAILABLE. FOR MORE INFORMATION, CALL RUGER'S CORPORATE HEADQUARTERS AT 203/259-7843 AND ASK FOR THE SAFETY CONVERSION KIT.
The .32 H&R Magnum New Model Single Six revolvers will also handle the .32 S&W and .32 S&W Long cartridges. They provide a step upward in power from the .22 Rimfire single-actions without the recoil, noise, and expense of larger centerfire magnum cartridges.
These revolvers will be popular choices among single-action shooters who like a compact, lightweight single-action revolver for action shooting competition or for the trail.
