Wow. USFA definitely makes nice firearms...

I guess the price is fair--it holds twice as many shots as the Ruger, and is twice as expensive...

But they really need to take the lie out of their web page.

USFA makes history with the largest capacity ever achieved in the “Old Six-Shooter.” The New Model 12/22™ beats the magazine capacity of any .22 Auto Pistol ever offered.
They say that their revolver beats the capacity of any semi auto .22 LR pistol ever offered.

S+W 41's used to have a 12 round capacity so it is equal to their revolver.

Ramline made a .22 LR pistol in the 80's with a 20 round magazine.

Ruger makes the Charger, a 10-22 based .22 LR pistol that can accept 30 and 50 round magazines.

And since they don't specify LR or Magnum, Grendel made the P30 .22 magnum with a 30 round magazine.

Perhaps they're referring to any .22 Auto offered by their company. They do have a 1911 style .22 that has a 10-round capacity, which would then make this revolver beat that capacity by 20%. However, the statement made is potentially misleading.

Dont forget the Calico J-22 which came with either a 50 or 100 round magazine

Yeah, but come one now....none of those other guns are made like the US Firearms pistols. These are all steel old school guns...made like we don't see most production guns made these days.

Judging by the looks and quality put into everything that company turns out....750 bucks for this pistol is probably about right. Just about everything on the US Firearms website is making me drool.

Yep...their single actions are sweet as are their 1911s.

I'd love a 357 4 3/4" color case hardened revolver and one of their Colt Lightning repros in 357 to match...but who can afford it?

Awwww, man! WHY'D ya have to post that?!?!?

I've been looking for a .22 revolver for a while and just picked up a Single Six last weekend! Dag-nabit!

Of course the Ruger was less than half what the 12/22 runs. And if I'd seen this of course I'd just have to have gotten it in nickel, pushing the price past $1100. With that in mind, I guess I should really be thankful I picked up my Single Six.

But I still want one of those......

I love Ruger's single actions and have owned several to prove the point, but theres no denying that US Firearms stuff is some of the nicest I have seen in a long time.

I'll probably end up with a Single Six (and thats ok, because they ARE good shooters) but man...that 22-12 is really a fantastic piece.

No doubt it's a nice piece, but they only got me beat by 3. My H&R is a 9 shot 6 shooter in 22. ;) :D :razz: :lol:

And I only paid $98 for it many years ago.

Still, I would love to fondle one of those US Firearms wheel guns. :mrgreen:

Pretty cool, but for the money I would just get a single six.
