I don't doubt the member who posted this, but I do find it odd that the frame wouldn't hold up.

Ruger uses the same barrel for .22LR and .22Magnum. The reason there's no Magnum cylinder is cost reduction. The frame itself has essentially no part in "containing" the ignition pressure, that's taken care of by the steel cylinder. The .22LR and the .22Magnum have the same SAAMI pressure spec, believe it or not.

Thus, why I found the alleged answer from Ruger to be odd. However, the competition is providing both cylinders at the same price point. So if they are making the gun to compete with Heritage, I'm not sure that just being prettier is going to steal that market share.

As far as the barrel, yes, they use the same barrel for .22 and .22 WMR on the Single Six because that firearm is convertible and comes with both cylinders. But does Ruger use .224 bore on other firearms that are only .22lr? If not, then why do it on this one if they only intend for you to use .22lr? Using the same barrel as the Single Six could explain for cost reduction.

How long do y'all think it will be before somebody fits a .22 Mag cylinder to one of these Wranglers ? That is, if the cylinder from a Single Six will fit, and I imagine they're the same.

BTW, I ordered mine on line and am waiting on delivery !

Nothing to do with the Wrangler under discussion, but I have to take issue that. Too hot loads will stretch a frame not built to contain them. I have a 1968 build Charter Undercover as personal proof of that.

I'll say my comment does not apply universally across all firearms. It is true that "hot" loads in certain chamberings can stretch a frame after considerable shooting, but I'm quite certain this won't apply in the case of the Wrangler. The key is your comment of being built to contain them, which is (or should be) taken into account in the design phase.

That said, I could be completely wrong because this is the internet . . . right?

Looked at a Wrangler at a outfit called Scheels here in Iowa yesterday, $200 tag on it. When I first read/heard about them I was sceptable when I saw that it had a aluminum frame as I'm a all steel and wood gun guy. When first holding it felt muzzle heavy, as it was, but while checking over and holding for awhile, it felt more comfortable. Could be gotten use to. Quality as far as overall metal fit and areas was all was good. The finish isn't the polished blue I'm more used to with carbon steel guns, but looked good. Would I buy one, maybe. Good price vs the more expensive Single Six, but for some one not wanting to invest in the price of one of those, it would be a nice piece and I'm 'picky' about my guns. It is light years ahead of those Heritage 22 LR I've seen at some GS's and gun shows. Worked with a guy a few years ago that had one of them and it was a total headache as far as quality and quality of action. Those IMO are a piece of crap, no offense to those of you that may have them. Nice gun, price from a major manufacturer of firearms that has a good reputation. Wouldn't trade my 1970 Super Single Six bought new for $71 though. Interesting to see how the track record on the Wrangler goes.

Just got back from my LGS, not expecting them to have one, but surprise surprise they had one, the bronze model. I wanted to handle one before purchasing. I was pleased with what I saw. It was the only one they had, but more on order, with no idea when they would get them. Needless to say, I snagged it. They had it for 199.95, my total bill including background check and tax, minus vet discount was 207.36 out the door. Not bad, no transfer fee or shipping, so I was okay with price. Nice, nice trigger IMO. I did notice the loading gate was quite stiff, but should loosen up with use and a dab of oil. I liked the sight picture, much better than the RR. Can't wait to try it out! going to relegate the Heritage RR to rattler and vole duty with the .22 mag cylinder and .22 shot shells. Promised the wife no new guns for at least 30 days. LOL.

Can't find any here yet in the Phoenix West Valley. I called Cabela's and they knew nothing about the gun.

First trip to the range shooting at 10 yds off hand.





I let 3 of the range safety officers shoot the gun and they all liked it. One of them is a big fan of single action revolvers and when I told him it was only $189 he said he's going to buy one to compliment his Ruger Blackhawk in 45LC.

I'm going to take it back to the range tomorrow and see if anyone else wants to shoot it.

My first impression is that it's very fun, accurate and for the money you really can't go wrong. For me it's going to be used to start new shooter off with because it's a single action and they have to cock the hammer each time so I think that makes it safer for new shooters. Plus the low recoil and muzzle blast wont scare them.

Here's a few of the groups I got using bulk pack federal ammo. I'm not the most accurate shooter with handguns and I do think this gun is more accurate than I am. In the right hands I bet those groups would be half the size.

Checked out the the new Wrangler today at the Ruger booth in Indy. Not bad. The color schemes are interesting. Some I liked, some I didn't. Based on fit, finish, build quality and concept I'm definitely going to buy one. Obviously I haven't shot one but it looks and feels like a heck of a bargain.

My gosh! I hadnít thought of that before. Can I retain you as my husbands rights attorney?

About the Wrangler, how easy does the finish come off? I was thinking that sliver might be the way to go, I like the black, but I am thinking holster wear would be brutal on it.

Bring out the 22 mag cylinder Ruger!
