Anybody know if the cylinder is steel or aluminum alloy?
I sent Ruger an email. If they are aluminum alloy like the airweight SW 22 revolvers, I would pass. Too much potential for chamber dilation and difficult ejection.They specify aluminum alloy for the frame, I'd guess the same for the cylinder based on the caliber.

Call Ruger to be sure.
The color is not flattering, and that casting line running down the frame is not winning any beauty contests. With that said, I sure would like to believe that the QC is better than the HRR. I'd still rather pay another $100 and get a used single six.LOOKS cheaper in appearance than even the Heritage Rough Riders
Seeing as they left the cylinder black in all three colors, makes me think it’s blue steel. Doesn’t look anodized, and at the price, I’m thinking they wouldn’t cerakote aluminum cylinders black separately.I sent Ruger an email.
