The cylinder will be a drop in, check with RUGER or THE GUN PARTS CORP., if this is going to be used in a .22 win mag Single SIx the acurracy will not be as great since the magnum bore is slightly larger then the long rifle bore.

HillBill,

That Ruger cylinder you want is NOT a "drop-in".

Factory dual cylinder guns have both cylinders fitted to the frame.

The ratchet-to-endbearing dimension must be fitted by selecting and/or grinding on the cylinder. If you buy a used cylinder, it very likely will either be too long (fitting necessary), or too short (excessive barrel-to-cylinder gap and cylinder end shake).
Re-timing of the revolver should not be necessary if the ratchet is orginal, although it should be checked, of course.

It should be available from Ruger, although I don't know if it would have to be fitted. If you have a Single Six made prior to the introduction of the 22 magnum the bore is built for the 22 lr. Ohterwise the bore is sized for the 22 mag and the LR will be forced to bump up to fill the oversized bore. An call to Ruger will settle the question but Brownells who sell Ruger parts doesn't list cylinders so I'll bet they will want to fit the new cylinder. Anyway the revolver service number is -603-865-2442. Their revolver service address is -
Sturm, Ruger & Co., Inc.
Attn: Service Department
411 Sunapee Street
Newport NH 03773
Good luck from the gunnut69
