New Wrangler, already showing a dragline...



Log in to see fewer ads
Haven’t even fired it yet.

Just cycling the action some to smooth it out and it’s already showing bolt-drag on the cylinder.

Near as I can see/measure, the bolt is popping about 8mm (.3”) too soon.

Pretty much drops out, and immediately pops back up.

Don’t have alot of experience with Rugers, but my two cheap Heritage RRs have many, many rounds through them and no drag.

Maybe this is simply endemic to Rugers and quite ordinary?

Function is otherwise fine.
Wouldn’t mind hearing from folks with some hands-on experience.

It’s to be a Xmas gift for my son..

Edit: The ‘pop’ is more like .5” premature...

This is typical for Ruger single action revolvers. My new single-six does exactly the same. Not to worry, this is normal.

drag line

Grubstake'
I've got about 150 rds thru my Wrangler and it's starting to show a faint drag line
about 1/4 inch ahead .It functions great and is a fun pistol to shoot.

Back in the late '70s, I had a Single Six that did the same thing. No big deal. It's only cosmetics, after all.

Getting a dragline on a revolver that gets used shouldn't be surprising. Getting one on a sub $200 should be expected.

.

I have several blued Ruger single-action revolvers (all are Old Model/3-screw) that get shot fairly often, and none have a drag line on the cylinder.

I would suggest calling Ruger Customer Service ( 1-366-949-5200 ) and see what they have to say about the action's timing.

I agree with this. My New Model Single Six Stainless, which has over 3300 rounds through it (total for both cylinders) shows no evidence of a drag line.

A very low depth, fine line would not really indicate a problem, but, if the drag line looks like a gouge, I would definitely be contacting Ruger.

Years ago I owned a blued Blackhawk .357 and it did have a very fine drag line. While cosmetically it was a little funky looking, I never worried about it.
