I CHECK GUNBROKER FOR CUSTOM RUGER SINGLE ACTIONS ON A REGULAR BASIS. CUSTOM GUNS COME UP THAT HAVE BEEN CUSTOMIZED BY A LOT OF THE BETTER KNOWN GUNSMITHS. MY PET PEEVE IS THAT GUYS WILL SPEND A BUNCH ON CUSTOMIZATION BUT THEN FAIL TO SPEND JUST A LITTLE MORE FOR A FREE WHEELING CYLINDER, BIG MISTAKE IMHO. DON'T KNOW HOW YOU GUYS FEEL ABOUT IT, BUT I LOVE FREE WHEELING CYLINDERS.

I don't own a custom Ruger, but I do agree on the free wheeling. When I purchased my bfr, I spun that massive cylinder both ways and then needed five minutes alone with it. Best feature on a wheel gun, period.

I have added the free spin pawl from Ron Power on several of my Rugers. A valuable addition to a hunting handgun.

A big part of why I love my BFRs!

I free wheeled my Super single six .32 H&R, much easier to load and unload.
