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.

S&W seems to be a bit worried...

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.

      I don't know why but I have a burning desire for a Colt King Cobra.  Somebody slap me! Talk me out of it or talk me into it. Or just talk.....

      Okay, since they make the 92G and the military M9 there, am I safe in assuming I can get a 92 marked Gallatin? I don’t want to pay hundreds extra for that marking as in the 92G Tennessee gun.
      So you Beretta guys school me. What’s the difference in an M9 and a 92? I just want the Gallatin marking in the 92 style and don’t care about any military stuff.
      Also, If I’m buying a blue/black gun, I want it to be a high polish blue/black; not some crummy matte or painted finish. Does Beretta do that at Gallatin on a standard gun?
      This would be a range toy that would get used. I’m not going to try to carry it, and I’m not looking for a collectable.
      Which Beretta do I need?

      Using the search feature on the front page showed no results for this.  Has anyone seen/shot the new Keltec CP33 .22LR pistol?  I picked up a S&W Victory earlier this year or late last year and have not been  in the market for a new .22 since then, but this little pistol looks sweet.  Just watched a video of it on Hickok 45's  youtube channel and it looked awesome.  Comes standard with 33 round mags and has an add on for a 50 round capacity.  Has a threaded barrel and his ran flawlessly pretty much for the most part. I understand they are in short supply, of course, and not sure of the costs but supposedly under 350 or so.
