This could be very interesting. I can't wait to hear from someone who buys one, and range tests it. I think Ruger may have something here.

All we need now is a guinea pig!!

this is as exciting as the release of the MKIVs ! I have been wanting a SAA .22, just couldn't afford a 500.00 single six. I heard the grips are the same as the single six, there will be lots of options as soon as the Wrangler hits the market.

It'd be very neat if it was available as a .22lr/.22mag convertible.

I have been on a list to buy one of these since just a few hours after Ruger's announcement.

comparison pics to the rough rider are an eye opener, aren't they!! I cant wait to get mine, I must be patient, I know it will take a while, but will be worth the wait. i have to make up my mind on the color, I am leaning towards the silver version. bronze looks interesting , but I just don't know. gee, black looks decent too, I hate choices !

Turner's Sporting Goods in CA. is selling them on a pre-order basis for $ 179.98, pretty low intro price for all three choices.

Good to see healthy competition from Ruger. Wish they had been avail. when I bought a RR.

I bet the stores will have a hard time keeping these on the shelves..

After my poor experience with a new dual cyl. RR quite some years back I said never again with that (kinda like my Taurus & Rossi experience, ymmv). I think I could easily go with this Ruger, not that I need it . Reminds me of my old Colt's Frontier Scout, which made it a good 'kit gun', BUT, it was only about 24oz!. This extra 6ish oz. of the Ruger kinda takes it past that kit gun weight/stick comfortably into a jeans pocket, to a pretty much need a holster gun.
How about a ruby red model

According to one review, it was actually 28oz. Which is 6oz lighter than my OMSS.

is looking for a black one for me, they quoted me 200. +14. local tax. yeah, I have heard of some on line for 175.-180. BUT AFTER 30-35. shipping and 25-30. FFL fee it is less expensive to buy from my LGS. cant wait to get my hands on it and take it on its first range session. may take a while to locate one, I think demand will be great.

For the 20 or so years I've been paying attention, Rugers typically go for 75% of MSRP. That comes up to $186.75.

If you compare two guns from two different manufacturers empty then itís apples to apples. If those guns have the same ammo in them itís a moot point and if the ammo is of different bullet weights then itís a apples to oranges comparison. Seem logical to me!

I sure am not talking about comparing a 357Mag or 45Colt to a 22Lr... but when I look at specs considering an arm I (emphasis 'I') want to know how much that weighs with the most commonly used ammo in it. Consider comparing the loaded weight of a Sgl Six, this Wrangler, and a Sgl 9 or 10 or what ever it is. Loaded, on my person is how I carry, Im not interested in a sittin in the box weight.
Now that is logical to ME.
Guess I'll have to go down and weigh 6 22LR something to add on my own to the advertised gun weight, which may or may not be correct.....
Oh, but wait, that wont work for a Sgl 9 or 10, I'll have to do it all over again.
Empty weights, bah! That is like advertising the weight of your car without gas, oil and tranny fluid in it.
