I guess some will call the frame 'pot metal', after all, some pots are made of alum.; never seen one made of Zamak though.....
Im just disappointed it looks to be only 2oz. less than a comparable Sgl. Six.

Looks to me to be 6 oz lighter than a single-10... I assume that's the stainless vs aluminum grip frame and about 2 oz of frame weight.

Although they seem to be marketing it as an entry level gun, I'll pick one up as the price is in the "10 bricks" price range. Dang it. Like I need another .22!?

The price is certainly appealing. Might make a good truck gun. But for me, I'd rather have a single six or Bearcat. I won't be buying one. Am interested in hearing about actual hands on experiences though.

Math is quite a challenge for some people in this thread.

Ruger 0678 (38 oz) is the closest Single Six to the Wrangler (30 oz) in terms of size and barrel length...that's an 8 oz difference.

I would also give the manual good read and look for any special suggestions around cleaning or lubrication. Fanning the gun? I have seen more than one alloy pistol with a busted trigger guard. Now with Ruger, I would be confident of a replacement, where there is no going back to the likes of Erma for a new frame.

BTW, the trigger guard on a single six blue gun is alloy and a very slight ding or drop and the black paint comes right off. I 'assume' ceracote is a lot better. And if so; maybe Ruger will see fit to apply the same upgraded finish to the single six, blue model, trigger guards. Same for the Blackhawk blue models. Those alloy trigger guards are terrible. Now they are building a whole gun out of the stuff.
IF it ever breaks, ruger will take care of any problems, as they always have.

At a price point like this, even having had lots of Ruger returns in recent memory, I will probably find the Wrangler impossible to resist.

I'm especially warming up to the more colorful versions and you know there will be a ton of exclusives (hopefully).

That is why I am not jumping on the pre-order, I think the street price is going to be under $199 and I have the patience to see if I am correct or not.

And if I am not then I will decide if I need this or a Single-10.

mo' shots, mo' better

I get the traditional six-shooter, but would like the Wrangler better if it was an 8-9-10 shot model. I may get one in a year or so.

MN and MA have a requirement that a gun withstand melting at certain temperatures, but it applies to just the parts that are exposed directly to heat or flame. This has nothing to do with Ruger not selling them there. This testing, actually a lot of tests, requires a gun company to send several guns to the state, pay a large fee, and deal with a lot of legalities. Ruger decided to stop playing that game. The Wrangler is available in CA, because they amazingly have requirements that allow a few guns without testing. The Wrangler being SA with a transfer bar probably let it off the hook.
Yes, aluminum would be better, and, you are right, I really don't see Zamak in a Ruger......after a second thought.

n ideal fit.
Ruger Wrangler Model 02002
Manufactured
Newport, NH


Caliber 22 LR
Cylinder Material Alloy Steel – Black Oxide
Cylinder Capacity
6
Barrel Material
Alloy Steel – Black Cerakote
Barrel Length 4.62″
Rifling 1:14″ RH 6 Groove
Cylinder Frame Aluminum – Black Cerakote
Grip Frame Die Cast Zinc Alloy
Grips Checkered Synthetic
Overall Length 10.25″
Weight – Empty 30 oz
Rear Sight
Integral
Front Sight
Fixed – Blade Front
MSRP $249


So it is an aluminum frame for the cylinder, and not zamak.

Has to be stronger than the zinc alloy.
