The safe carrying position for New Model Single Six and Bisley Convertible Revolvers is with the hammer fully down and the trigger forward. In this position thehamm er does not contact the firing pin. See page 7. In older (1953-1972) Single Sixes with serial numbers below 62-00000. the hammer, when in the full forward position, does rest against the firing pin.
Accordingly, never, model'
fully forward and line with light blow to the hammer can readily cause discharge. It is always safest to carry the hammer down over an empiy chamber regardless of revolvers type. See page 23 for details about our free safety conversion offer for "old model" Ruger Single Sixes.
