Ruger Wrangler

Recommended Posts

Looks like Ruger is going budget to compete with the Heritage Rough Rider with a new revolver called the Ruger Wrangler.   Aluminum cerakoted in three color combos to start.   MSRP is $250.   Looks like I'll be selling a rough rider and upgrading to a Ruger for my niece and nephew.

I’m definitely interested in getting one of these. Thanks for posting, I hadn’t heard about this yet.

I kinda like them.  They aren't beautiful, but they are workman like.

I expect this is be a very big success. I’ve never been a fan of single action revolvers, but at under $200; I might give one a try.

Good for Ruger.

Single Action, Aluminum alloy, Cerakote.  Already being offered at $199 on a pre-order so the price will probably drop even lower.

Ha, Ha, Ha, that was exactly my first thought when I saw the email today.

Noticed the one Jeff was shooting is missing some Cerakote on the left side of the frame. Makes me wonder how duriable the finish will be.

I noticed that as well and had the exact same thought.

And 20 years down the road people will be saying "Ruger is a good gun, except for those Wranglers, they're kind of junky." 

The Heritage is what it is, I own one, and it's not a bad gun.  But, I wouldn't put my Heritage up against a Single Six.  Although I can appreciate nice guns, they sit in the safe, while my Heritage and SKS, get thrown on the four wheeler or tractor and actually used.

I don't see these as being a collector type pistol.  Definitely a working/beater gun.

There is a difference?

I've mentioned before that my beat up old hands just don't work with the traditional SA style revolver. Not only do I not shoot one worth a hoot, the trigger guard beats the crap out of my knuckle. I've owned a number of Ruger and Colt style centerfire single actions over the years and ended up selling them all.  :shake:

I have given thought to getting a .22 single action just to see if that'll work. The Wrangler seems to be a good gun and the price is cheap enough. I just might give it a try. Although I'd really prefer adjustable sights. We'll see what happens if I can get one in my hand.

I'm curious and like the bronze two tone.

Willing to wait for a few production runs to get the cerakote and any early mechanicals dialed in.

So would one of these loaded with shot shells be good for killing carpenter bees? That would seem like some inexpensive fun.

Yes, I use a single six like that. It works and is lots of fun.

I had planned to do something similar with shot shells and never got around to it. I have used  my S&W Governor with .410 shells to do Bee Skeet, a lot of fun but more misses than hits.

      My FN 509 MRD arrived this past week and I wasted no time popping a spare Trijicon RM07 red dot optic on it and taking it to the range.  This is my second 509, having purchased the non optic-ready midsize 509M earlier this year and being very pleased with it as well.
      As I have commented elsewhere on TGO lately, I am quickly coming to the point where I am not interested in a handgun for daily carry if isn't set up for use with an optic.  I began the red dot journey a year ago and am fully converted to the religion now.  If you had asked me about it two years ago, I would have told you I was greatly skeptical.  This one of those things where personal exposure and experience are the greatest persuaders.
      As for the 509 MRD, there is is only one reason that this gun could could fail to put a hurt on the sale of more well known 9mm handguns for duty or serious concealed carry:  lack of marketing exposure.
      FN doesn't have the marketing budget of Glock or Smith & Wesson, I'm sure.  But they have a superior firearm in the 509.
      There.  I said it.
       
      Buy one before the rest of the world figures it out and you have to wait to find one.

      I've just been given this by a really good friend (it's good to help out sometimes!)
      As far as I can tell it's a Model 32 (possibly a Terrier) in .38 s&w
      That's pretty much all kinds can find online about it. I found a couple on Gunbroker with values that, to me, seem outlandish, but I can't find any dating info for the serial number. 
      It has one number on the butt, that matches inside the grips, but there's a different number on the inside of the crane.
      Can anyone help me out with dating/value info please? This is my first actual Smith revolver.....
