    :) Hello,

    I usually can figure out this type of question, however Ruger has no posting of my serial number.

    On the cylinder frame it states:
    40616X
    Ruger .22 cal
    Single-Six

    The Ruger emblem is off to the right.

    I'm looking to find out the year of manufacture. I don't think it's anything special, just a .22, however it's the real deal, old western world firearm.

    I'm going to ""factory"" build it starting with the cylinder frame, starting with the bluing shop, no custom stuff, all Ruger parts.

    :D This is the second Ruger one for me, my other is a; 1971, Blackhawk, .357, no conversion, a really nice one.


    Thanks for any help I would really appreciate it.

    :o I guess from the response that this is something that's no one has a answer.

    :roll: Guess I need to move on to find another source for the Rugar single six old model, for answers.

    Thanks for everything. :?

    Just read your post. Am not an expert, but that ""X"" can be puzzling. The serial number falls into 1957. The ""X"" can have alot of meanings or nothing. Best advice is to fill out the form from Ruger's website for documentation, send Ruger ten bucks and see what gives.

It is a six digit serial number, the first numbers are really important to narrow down the year. This is a common practice when enquiries about serial number are used.

    Then according to Ruger's website, that serial number should be for a single six magnum made in 1964. If it not a magnum, I don't know what to tell you.

I'm told that 1964 is what may be, so I'm going with 1964.
