IIRC High Standard had the traditional looking SA with a swing out cyl in a number of models but only in 22LR.

Seems to me I recall a High Standard 22LR revolver like you are talking about.

Schofield doesn't swing out, but it's single action, gets rid of empties PDQ, and is as easy to load as any swing out cylinder. Likes it so much, I've got two 8)

Hamilton bowen made a couple single actions that had swing out cylinders. The idea was to swing it out and pop it off and replace it with another loaded cylinder and slam it shut. Kind of a speedloader in a way.

Yep, when I was a teen, I wanted one of those High Standard 10 shot swing out revolvers. It did look just like the cowboy guns. I think they made it with a spare 22 mag cylinder also. When I got old enough to buy one, couldn't find one anywhere. Only alternative is the Ruger single six, but it is a 22 copy of the Colt. Someone needs to make a swing out cylinder, even if double action 22LR/22Mag in a 10 shot or 12 shot in a larger frame.

I don't see any point in it. A good double action revolver has a better SA trigger pull and a faster and shorter SA hammer fall than a traditional single action revolver.
Single action revolvers are my favorite handguns, and the biggest reason for that is their simplicity and strength. Adding a swing-out cylinder would diminish both qualities.
In fact, I have a few double-action revolvers that don't have swing-out cylinders.

Actually, there is a single-action revolver currently made that has a swing-out cylinder: the North American Arms Sidewinder.

While not a CF, the NAA Sidewinder is a single-action revolver with a swing-out cylinder.
