Wrangler ?

Do you like your Ruger Wrangler ?
Is the finish holding up ?

We've sold about 90 since July . Not hearing any complaints so far so that's positive . Hoping they eventually add an upgraded model with adj rear sight and wood grips .

Then you're getting into Single Six territory but knowing Ruger and their propensity for offering multiple versions of a product, it wouldn't surprise me.

Thanks for the feedback .

You're right , they're known for multiple versions . As the base models are still in short supply we may not see new variations until down the road .

Wood grips aren't too costly . The rear sight would be more of a challenge due to the top strap contour .
I think they could still turn out a "target" Wrangler for maybe $100 more than the std .

I really like mine. The finish has held up just fine but its only been a range gun for me. Its pretty accurate and has fired any 22 ammo I have used with zero problems.

I say don't bother with the rear adjust sight.

I bought a Ruger single six conv. 22/22mag a couple of years ago w adjust rear sight and the thing is terrible inaccurate.
One of the worst shooting revolvers I have ever owned.

Plus the blue is so thin it wore off after a few months of holster use.

I traded into a single six several years ago. It was not accurate at all. I contacted Ruger and they had me ship it back to them.

When I got it back the issue had been resolved. The revolver is now very accurate. And it did not cost me any money. And I told them that I bought it used. That did not matter. I am happy with Ruger.

I have seen reports of dry firing damaging the cylinder even though Ruger says it ok to.

I think it would be fun to buy one and get a slick set of grips. But the grip fit is confusing. Can tell what grips match.

I really like mine. I like the grips, the sights and the finish is holding up well. The only thing it really needs is a 10 round cylinder.

Blackhawk, Vaquero, Wrangler, Single Six, Super Single Six, Old Army are interchangeable. They are not interchangeable with the New Vaquero or Super Blackhawk. Altamont makes some nice grips. https://www.altamontco.com

Gun shop near me had a couple for that. I didn't like the finish so I bought a used Single Six for 250.00. Even tho it does have adjustable sights on it.

Yeah, there's a reason it sells for less. I guess they do seem to be somewhat popular but I've yet to see any flattering pictures of this gun yet to even make me consider one. It may very well function just fine as one would expect from Ruger but lower cost rarely means it's going to look very good. Maybe if I were in the market for a lower priced option I might chose it over a Heritage Rough Rider but frankly I would rather pay more for something that looks a bit nicer like a Single Ten or Single Six.

That was a guy with a table at the OGCA show. He had 4 of them, all NIB. Who knows what he paid for them.

I know what he paid if he bought from a distributor . He's wasting his time . Must need the cash or something .
