The sight picture on the Ruger was excellent, plus it allowed a user to adjust the sights; the Heritage had fixed sights.
Ruger countersunk each chamber in the Single-Six’s cylinder (left); Heritage countersunk the entire surface of the cylinder rear (right), leaving a ridge.
The grooved Ruger base pin (right) was easier to grasp than the finely knurled Heritage base pin (left).
The Single-Six has a transfer bar to block the hammer from hitting the firing pin. Both SA triggers were crisp and light.
