    I just picked up an Old Model Single Six and I can't find the link to the manufacture dates. Can anyone tell me what year this one was made. 8078XX

    Here's a few photos of my latest Single Six, I love the old ones. This one goes nicely with my 6.5" Old Model.

    Speaking of the OM Single Six... an acquaintance of mine told me he owns one - with both LR and WRM cylinders. Did the model start out that way?

    Your friend is referring to the convertible models, my 6.5" pictured is one of them with 2 cylinders. The Single sixes started out as a 22LR model followed by a 22 WMR model. They proved to be so popular people asked for one that would fire both chambering and the convertibles were introduced and still going strong.
