Finally snagged a Wrangler



Log in to see fewer ads
Iíve been getting alerts from an online dealer off and on .
I was either too late finding the email , or didnít have the funds at the time .
Most of the time , it wasnít the black one , the one I wanted .
I even had them cancel my order once , with them admitting they oversold .
Well , I finally snagged one and will pick it up tomorrow afternoon.
Pictures and review after a range trip next week .

Best of luck with your new Wrangler!
I bought a black one about a month ago and I'm very pleased with it.
They are an incredible value and fun to shoot.
Some nice wood grips make a big difference in the looks dept.

For not much more than the price of the the two you want you could get an Uberti .22 SAA. All steel, better put together, much better looking. We all have different goals....

Ain’t no way i’ll Ever buy another Uberti Single action rimfire revolver!
I own one . It was nothing but trouble from the first day I took it to the range .
No thanks , I’ll stick to my Rugers even the ones with an aluminum frame !
You must not read many of my other posts . I’m the guy who wants Ruger to build a Single action rimfire revolver like the LCRX with an aluminum shrouded barrel , and aluminum frame with a steel cylinder.

Loading gate does take a little thumb strength to open , but itís not impossible and Iím thinking itíll improve with use .

Kirby999, That is a beautiful revolver! As far as the stiff loading gate is concerned, there have been other posts either in this forum or the Ruger forum that describes how you can bend the spring to make it much more easy to manipulate the gate and I'm sure that someone will probably offer an aftermarket spring that will accomplish the same thing. However, if you are one that would rather not modify your handguns, I'm sure that if a person kept the loading gate lubed where the spring rides against it that it will smooth out with use. Those aren't the stock grips that came on it are they? They are very nice!

Thanks , the grips are some Iíd had on a stainless Single Six that got pearl grips . I dung around in my extra grip box and found these . Iíd forgotten I had them .
Thanks for the tips . Iím going to shoot it as is for now . If I find I need to modify it , Iíll search around find the mod .

That's ironic. I had a pair of nice stock Ruger wood grips that I had leftover when I had put some artificial ivory grips on a Black Hawk revolver, so, when I got my new Single-six recently that had came with the black checkered plastic grips I got the idea of slapping the Wood grips on it. It's really cool when you can use grips from the parts bin to dress up a new handgun! I just think yours really look nice on the black Wrangler.

Kirby999,

Now that you're on the Wangler kick, you might as well let me have that pair of 0678 Single Sixes...you surely don't need them any longer.
