I have a Ruger Single Six .22lr/ .22mag.

I had the .22lr cylinder stolen several years ago.

Can I just buy a replacement cylinder?
Does it have to be "timed"?

I would think that it has to be fitted to your particular gun - check with Ruger for a definitive answer.

i don't know about prices for the single six but for a blackhawk it will cost around $120 to have a conversion cylinder timed for your revolver. and you will have to send your revolver to them to have it timed.

Cylinders MUST be fitted.
Since the cylinder length establishes head space, barrel/cylinder gap, and end shake, and the cylinder also has to be adjusted for proper chamber alignment with the barrel, fitting is necessary.

Ruger will do it as cheap as anyone, they have the right parts, and will do it RIGHT.

Thanks guys.

if yours is an old model however they will automatically make the safety conversion. that would be a significant downer.

Ruger quoted me $60 about ten years ago. Price has probably changed since then, but at the time I thought it was reasonable.

I ended up trading the gun instead. It's the only gun trade I regret.

I just got off the phone with Ruger.

The price is

$42 for the cylinder
$20 Labor
$30 shipping
$92 total

Plus the cost of Next day shipping to them.

I guess I'm sending the pistol to them.

Thanks for y'alls help guys.
