Good Day to everyone.
Picked up one of the new wranglers in black after reading such good reviews on this revolver,
This will be my first revolver and first 22lr and had a couple of question's
First having read more on this issue was shooting to the left, Good grouping and Ladders But figured it is in my trigger pull and grips. Also Painted the edge of the front sight with white paint to get a better picture.
Since the revolver frame is so thin and new grips might be in the future.
Second Since this is my first 22lr I had a problem after about 60-90 rounds it is difficult to load in some cylinders as well as not seating all the way so it will bind the cylinder and not move until I play with it and get it seated. Is this normal?
Do I need to run a bore brush every 50-60 rnds to clean it out. No biggie but I figured it would take a couple of hundred before something like this. Again this is my first 22lr
And if your wondering I was shooting the Winchester M-22
Thank You ....

Welcome to the wonderful World of Wranglers! As a general rule, most of these little guys are a bit stiff from the factory. A good cleaning a a couple hundred rounds down range seem to do them wonders. I don't think the brand of ammo has much to do with loading tightness, but clean it up good and take her out again.

If you look around on this site, you will see how some have "tuned" them up a little. (I don't think this hurts them any)

Go shoot and get some experience behind you and your Wrangler and maybe you will find your groups improve.

Enjoy,

WR

I've had my second one on back order for 2 months now, so, I keep hoping to get the call pretty soon.

even clean, it took a little extra push to fully seat Remington "Golden Bullet" ammo in Wrangler. CCI and Aguila both loaded much easier than the Rem.

Will defiantly be taking it back to put some more holes in paper
Wife loves it, Maybe there is a 45LC or 357 in the future.

Rosewood grips gave me the girth I wanted. The more you shoot it the better it becomes. Welcome to the Forum.
