I always notice we say find the ammo your rifle likes. So with that in mind, can better accuracy for our Wranglers be had as with our rifles if we find the ammo it likes ?

I didn't buy my Wrangler with any expectations of great accuracy. Tin can at 7-10 yards is all I need out of it. It's more a toy than a gun IMO. That said no matter how cheap a gun is it should still undergo QC and be rejected if it's not up to the standards it should be.

You're right, professional gun writers are disingenuous and lacking credibility. I think it was the smoke screen they threw up; talking about how the manufacturing cost was kept down, but the internal parts were the same parts used in the single six, blaaa blaaa blaaa. The gun rags are complicit in the rip-off.

Which leads me to question, how much worse can a crown get before it shoots really bad ?

I've since sent back in to have the crown fixed. I want to see how its affected.
Good luck. I sent mine in for keyhole impacts and they sent me a new revolver.

Ruger gunsmith called me, said he put a crown on it, test fired, cleaned and is on its way back. Will compare to how it shoots with the new crown compared to my previous targets.

Any idea on what was causing yours to keyhole ?

Can't wait to see the new crown and some new targets.

Since the Wrangler is a budget gun, it makes me think accuracy standards might be more in line with a Heritage than a Single Six?

For a single action revolver that has no target sights, I was fine with the accuracy at 12'

Same here......mine shot 15" high at 25 yards......accuracy was bad to....shame on Ruger for putting guns out like this, and they are getting worse all the time. Have a friend who has a Wrangler also, poor accuracy with keyholing to.

I bought a Heritage rough rider this week 148.00. Their is a YouTube video on drilling and tapping it for a Red Dot. Problem is darn guy does not reference the weaver number mount.
I am think it would be the same as for the Ruger wrangler Any one know the weaver mount a guy could use for a red Dior in these cheaper pistols ? Marty

I have nothing good to report. The Wrangler scatters shots like a smooth bore .22.

Before coming here, I read accuracy reports written in the American Rifleman and Guns and Ammo. The Rifleman claims all groups were under 3" and Guns & Sandwitches claims 1.5-2.25" groups.

Does Ruger pay these liars directly, or is it a gentleman's agreement in consideration of advertising fees? Ruger certainly ripped off lots of people, and these gun rags helped sell the con. Most of us just eat it because it was only $200.00.
I don't trust any gun magazine that accepts advertising as they are obligated to "be kind" to the manufacturer who buys the ads. There are some gun writers I tend to trust more than others, but even their articles are edited by people at the magazine. The more the manufacturers pay the magazine, the kinder the reviews. Gun Tests is the one publication I trust more than all the others as they don't accept advertising and will call a "spade a spade", regardless of how famous the maker or how popular their image.
