That’s right, cowpokes. it’s a nine shot single action drilled for .22 WMR. Soda cans and varmints beware. Press release and a couple of sexy snaps after the jump.


Sturm, Ruger & Company, Inc. (NYSE: RGR) is proud to announce the Ruger® Single-Nine™, a nine-shot, single-action revolver chambered in .22 Winchester Magnum.

The Single-Nine™ 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-Nine™ is well-balanced and points easily. Williams™ 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-Nine™ builds upon the success of the Single-Ten®,” 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-Nine™ easy to point and aim,” he continued.

  1. I have the Single-Ten, and it’s great. I’ve been hoping for a long time Ruger would make this. Definitely on the short list.

  2. Can’t really see the advantage over the single-six. Three more rounds, sure, but with the added ability to shoot 22LR I think single-six is a way better deal.

      • Yes, and the RFB, KSG, SU16A, the Sub-2000, and so on. They did it with the P3AT, why not these? At least then they would be available.

        • Right? Ruger stole, i mean looked at the P3AT concept and improved it and now I own an LCP. If they did the same thing with the PMR 30, Ruger could have 300 more of my dollars. Hell, Ruger should just hire Kel Tec to do concepts for them.

          As for this Single 9, I’m sure it’s nice and all, but I just don’t see a place for it in my safe.

        • I wish somebody other than Kel-Tec would make a Sub-2000 type rifle. They’re not available at all, and the G19 version seems to be rarer than Sasquatch riding a unicorn. No, I don’t want to buy the G17 version and cut it down to work with my G19 mags.

          I like the idea of Kel-Tec doing concepts for Ruger. Stellar idea.

  3. I’m actually quite disappointed, to me this looks like “Let’s slap new hub caps and a racing stripe on it!” Mkting. At best it is a soulution for a problem that does not exist.
    I see absoultely no advantage for the customer in having to buy a new holster for his single action 22 with the funny plastic sight. And before the Haters start in, Yes, I do own said sight(s) and have had to super glue the darn things in place after the 1st insert broke in the field, on it’s first day out. I have also owned 6.5″ barreled revolvers, M-29s to be specific. Believe me, the holster choice was as limited as it was expensive.
    SWARF is right: A Ruger Version of the PMR-30 (in metal) with a top/bottom rail would have been a noteable, epic event, and well received.

    • The one thing I was concerned about was that front sight snagging on the holster. Sounds like you’ve confirmed its an issue.

  4. Dammit now I have to go buy one of these. Just when I was starting to pay off that credit card…..

    Right after I wipe the drool off the keyboard.

  5. Thanks TTAG for saving my sanity. I’m sitting in a coffee shop in Portland overhearing some woman (to my right) with an irritating voice tell another woman about her friend’s 12lb baby and vag dilation issues. They’ve been discussing labor issues for 15 minutes. An older man, behind me, is walking around whooping it up like he’s a wild Indian about to go on the warpath. To my left some infant is crying on his mother’s lap. If it wasn’t for a hottie with tattoos and piercings sitting ten feet away this place would be a last time visit. Now the women to my right is discussing umbilical cords squirting stuff. When my friend gets here (he’s a Glock dude) I’m going to start talking really loudly about ballistics and wound channels.

    • Aharon, you got off easy. I’m sitting in McCarran Airport awaiting my flight back to MA, listening to some dude complain about losing his double down on an ace-six.

      • It kills me to have to listen to all of these stupid, inane cell phone calls. We used to have phone booths. I always thought it was to protect the privacy of the caller. Now I realize it was to protect the rest of us from having to listen to so much utter stupidly. I decided to launch a one man war against public cell phone calls. Last week a guy was headed towards the milk cooler the same time I was making my trip when his phone sounded off. He answered by saying “Yeah Honey, I am at Kroger’s getting milk. Need anything else?” I loudly said “Hey Jim, bring me another cold beer and get that girl off the table. She can’t dance.” That took care of him. This morning I found myself in the waiting room of a car dealership, sitting behind a nice looking lady who appeared to be in her 30’s. She was yacking away, evidently having a conservation with her mom. Using my deepest Percy Sledge voice I said “Hey baby, can you hand me that towel?” Oh well. I didn’t need to pick up the parts today anyway. I’ll go back Monday. Chances are she will have cleared out by then.

  6. Very nice gun! I do not own a single action 22 and was seriously excited about this one. However the sights are a deal breaker. Those sights might be fine on…………I take that back. I don’t know of any firearm those sights make sense on.

  7. Does it have the Ruger transfer bar safety? The cylinder was shown with one chamber empty. That’s not a problem, though. The front sight, on the other hand, looks like a good way to sell inserts.

    • No doubt it has the transfer bar. Ruger went to a lot of trouble retrofitting them over the years and it’s common sense to have one.

  8. I’ve read elsewhere that the 22 WMR is too loud if fired from a handgun-sized weapon. If someone ever buys this nice shooter, please post a review with decibel measurements. Thanks. 🙂

  9. I like it. Just bought it. Gotta wait my 10 days. I have older eyes and like the williams sights. And yes they are durable made of steel….not plastic. 22 mags are the only way to go. LR are a tad bit weak.

  10. I jut bought it and immediately went to the range. What a surprise. i really think it will be one of my favorite guns. It is not as noisy as i would have thought. Nice smooth operation. Very high quality. Worth every penny. I also have a single six with the 22 mag accessory but i really prefer to have a specific gun for each. Very accurate. Really happy i made this spontaneous purchase.

  11. I have the kel tec pmr 30 i also own a gsg 22 lr 1911 very happy with both they seem to work better when you put 500 rounds through them ,no jams when i load a round in chamber release the slide then put the clip in my kids tell me thats strange but if it works for that gun its ok
