I suppose its a matter of supply and demand. I paid 219.00 for one. Same guy sold me one for 199.00 a few weeks earlier. They were a bit scarce locally at the time. It just called to me, and looked so alone on that shelf ...

You can find them on line for 179.00, but you will get to pay your local FFL for the trouble. The farm stores seem to carry them regularly for 189.00, but they go as fast as they get them in.

I am curious how this will turn out. Will they be short lived? Will they expand the market? Will they be available for years? It's an unexpected play from Ruger. I'd really like an adjustable site model. MSRP 299.00? 249.00 on the street. I'd take a few.

Well it is not yet a paperweight, the cam diameter for the cylinder pawl is way bigger than the Wrangler cylinder cam. I will function as is but it requires a double cock of the hammer, really more like a cock and a half, lol. Indexing looks fine and cylinder gap looks good too, a bit larger than the Wrangler cylinder. More details to follow.

I just did both a "poor mans trigger job" and a set of Wolff spring on my son's Wrangler and measured trigger pulls. The "poor man's" letting off one hook of the trigger spring brought the trigger pull from just under 5 lbs to just over 2 1/2 lbs. The 30 oz Wolff spring ($13) brought it down to just under 2 lbs. The trigger has no creep at all haven't shot it yet just measured trigger pulls.

VincentG58, that is going to be a interesting project when done. Will be looking for a update later and good luck.

I am waiting on two more small parts to arrive, four more parts to beadblast and add before sorting out the loading gate. I plan to take before and after pics of the Altamonte grips, both fitting and inlays. The cylinder is going onto my lathe next phase, please cross your fingers. I won't do another range trip until the wmr testing, and I have a wide variety of wmr ammo to try it with. Only in mine of course, my warranty is otw I am assuming, anyway. We are going to make some Rosemary Pine grips for his and the Wolff springs and that is it.

Vincent,

When you modify the 22 mag cylinder that you purchased for the Wrangler, will that modification make it unusable in the Single Six?

I'm unsure what you are referring to when you use the term "cylinder cam".

Thanks,

WR

Hi Rich, I am going to say yes I think it will make it unusable for a single six. On the rear of the cylinder is a gear/cam that the pawl engages to rotate and align the cylinder. The outer diameter of which is approx .014" larger diameter than the Wrangler cylinder. The wmr cylinder "chucks up" in the gun just fine, but when you cock the hammer it does a half cock and then a full cock after which everything is aligned. Before I put it in the lathe I will do some more inspection. It may be that the depth and angle of each ratchet is different, they appear to be the same. Reshaping the angles and depth of cuts would require a dividing head/table for my vertical mill which I do not have and if it turns out to be that complex I will just leave the cylinder as is. The Wrangler does use Single Six internals but also has unique parts (pawl guide) as well as parts that are quite different like the loading gate.

I am still waiting on the last 2 parts to arrive to beadblast and assemble, they are the base pin latch and nut in stainless. I still have to install the stainless ejector and ejector housing screw. I am unsure at this point if the modified stainless loading gate is really going to work, I hope it does, I def like the look of it.

Ok, I see what you mean. I have a stainless single six, and just checked.
What you refer to as a cam, I always called the "ratchet" on the cylinder. Mine is closer to .064 larger than my wrangler. I was going to try my wrangler cylinder in the single six, but, the wrangler cylinder is .022 longer and won't fit in there. It appears that the pawl/hand in both of them are the same distance from centerline.
It could be, that it may just work in both.

My wife just showed me a flyer for Stock and Field, Wranglers for $169.99 until the 25th.

May be another one in my future......

That's interesting since ILL-annoy law prohibits the Warnglers from being sold there. MN is the same way, based on the frame composition.

Here are pics of both cylinders. The tooling used to cut the teeth on the gear/cam is totally different between the two cylinders, but the pitch angle is the same. I chucked the wmr up in my sons Wrangler and the half cock error is almost non existent. If you cock the gun slowly it is still there but a normal speed of cocking the gun you don't feel it at all.

Btw I paid $199 on sale at Shoot Straight for these Wranglers, their "regular" price for them is $229 for Black and Bronze and $239 for Silver. Idkw the Silver is $10 more, I am assuming they had more demand for them. Several were out on their sale tables for anyone to handle (along with 50+ other guns) and I noticed the Silver one always has scuff marks showing. The Midway SS birdshead grip frame was on sale during cyber Monday for $73.99, I knew then I was "meant" to have one, lol.

It would be helpful if you could provide a link to the existing law that states to what you have eluded.

I tried a Google search and came up empty.

Thanks in advance.
