Loaded weights vary, depending on what exactly it's loaded with. The unloaded standard across the board makes the most sense to me. Loaded weight of a 6-shot .22LR revolver is the definition of irrelevant.

That looks like an interesting six gun. Have to wait and see how it stacks up. Looking forward to seeing if they will have them in the Ruger booth at the NRA convention.

I would expect to see them there, along with some other surprises. Kinda wish now that I was making the drive.

While I am fortunate enough to have my Father's Single-Six (that he bought in 1970, when I was 8), and for which I have both .22 cylinders, this certainly looks like something I'd jump on if I didn't have that.

If you-all's reviews I feel certain to come are positive, I'll even think about picking up a couple for my great-nephews (since they are 4 1/2 & 5 they'd not get them for a few years) or even for their younger sisters (my nieces are all gun-savvy, and hunt etc with their hubbies).



BTB, the Ruger site says "grip-frames are zinc, cylinder-frame is alu, and cylinder & barrel are steel alloy".

I also wonder if Ruger has success with this, they would consider a centerfire version of it. A five shot compact carry single action would fun too.

Zinc???

Isn't that the stuff that starts to crack up after 15 years or os so?

I get aluminum alloy for low weight, but zinc from a first line company like Ruger?

If the gun was all aluminum like my S&W 317 I'd consider it, but the heck with zinc. I think someone at Ruger has lost their mind with a junk metal. I'll definitely be passing on it with zinc involved.

No expert here but what I have recently read about Zinc alloys and injection molding I feel fairly certain it will be just fine as a 22 grip frame.
We all know Ruger has a lot of experience in casting and has one of the best customer service Depts. going in case a problem did arise.

I am so worried that UPS will deliver one at a local FFL for me Monday

I am sure the Wrangler is a adequate plinker. The coating is downright ugly. On a Cowboy single action? What is Ruger thinking? I doubt I could ever warm up to it. Drives my OCD crazy.

The finish is a concession that must be made to reach the target price point. It's also one of few options that is applicable to all three metals present, steel, aluminum and zinc. Sorry but you're not gonna get finely polished and blued steel for $200.

Apparently Ruger is thinking pretty smartly. They've turned a profit every year since inception, run on cash and are debt-free. They're also the largest firearms' manufacturer in the US and have drawn A LOT of attention with the new Wrangler.

The finish should be just fine. I believe this will be a good inexpensive gun to own and shoot.

For those that don't like the idea of a zinc alloy grip frame which is only there so you have something to hold on to, and seeing how they say the frame from a single six is the same why not just get one and put it on the wrangler. I know there goes the cost but stop and think about what is spent on a 1022 or any other gun to make it tacticool you telling me by putting an folding stock and vent guard on top is going to make it a better gun to take in the woods to shoot some limbrats give me a break. They are giving us a reasonable priced 22 sixshooter that can be used in the way we want and not worry about the scratches and dings it gets.

Wrangler

I will be buying one soon. Just had to line up a new FFL my old guy increased his transfer fee to $45, said he had too many guys buying online. I told him to order some Wranglers keep the price reasonable and he should sell a bunch of em.
