It is too small for my hand, being it seems like a 2/3 scale SA. like most have found, the alloy material feels wrong. I have had cap guns that are more substantial in my childhood. But it was never designed for anything more than a Heritage killer. The Single Six is more my speed.

You sure you looked at the Wrangler? It is the same size as the Single Six. Single Six grip panels fit the Wrangler.

yes, it was the Wrangler.... it is just small to me. I'm sure it seems bigger to some. Like I said before, I'm probably the only guy who isn't that impressed. It is fine for everyone else.

I'm struggling to understand how it is "small" to you, when the frame is the same size, and the grips are interchangeable. It is the same size as a Single Six. It is lighter... is that what you mean? Or are the plastic grips on the Wrangler possibly thinner than the wood grips on a Single Six?

Yeah, what he is saying makes no sense. He said that the Single Six is more his speed, but the Wrangler is to small....? They have the same size frame!

I'm not hear to debate the issue, My hands are simply larger and the small stature of the little revolver and it's lightweight feel and cheap finish isn't something I found attractive. The Single Six is a far better choice, although a bit more money. They are flying off the counters almost as fast as they get shown. I simply stated my reasons for not following the herd.

No matter the same size frame is used they clearly are not in the same class and it becomes obvious once it's in my hands...maybe yours are smaller and it fits better?

If you need to keep up the attack after I clearly expressed my opinion....I'll just sit back and watch the fireworks.

Edited.... please accept my apologies, if anyone gets a bruised ego. I just thought I would share my impression after handling it.

I used to have a Single Six years ago that the wife and I absolutely loved but I sold off some guns to pay for my daughter's doctor bills back then. I will surely own a Wrangler or two soon!

"Not in the same class" is very different than frame size. You thought it felt cheap, or lightweight... valid opinion and reason, as the frame is made of different material and is lighter weight. You prefer bluing over Cerakote. Again, valid reasoning.

But to say that the two firearms are different sizes when they can interchange grip panels and they use the same size holster doesn't make sense. It's like saying that you like a metal 1 foot ruler because the plastic 12" ruler feels too small.

I heard one time that the Colt Frontier Scout was a 7/8th scale of the Single Action Army. Is the Wrangler in the same size category? I find the Scout to be on the small size for my hand, but enjoy shooting it, and find it very accurate. It was purchased for my grandmother and I wound up with it.
I really need to get to the store to check one out.

The Wrangler is basically the same size as the Single-Six and only a couple of ounces lighter. A SS cylinder would drop in the Wrangler frame and the pin could be installed. Of course, it isn't going to work I was just wondering if a SS cylinder would would fit.

As for the grip frame I put Ruger walnut grip panels on mine to see how they fit and they were actually shorter, enough so that at the bottom of the grip frame to not look right, too much frame was still in view;
.075" short about the same thickness as a popsicle stick

Were the grip panels you used from a stainless Single Six? I read somewhere that Ruger made a grip panel that was a bit shorter and it came on the stainless guns.

Walnut grips were from a blue 1975 Single-Six convertible.

My plastic grip panels off my new Blackhawk 41 Magnum revolver fit my Wrangler perfectly and have the silver eagles.
