Interesting read. One tidbit I picked up on.

The single six has steel frame and aluminum grip frame.
The wrangler has aluminum frame and zinc grip frame.

Curious minds wonder if Ruger will apply an appropriate black/blue ceracote to the single-six grip frame. They are currently painted.

I would not want any zinc alloy parts on a gun. I have no doubt Ruger will be there with a lifetime of free replacements to anyone or everyone that ever needs it.

When doing a price comparisons, keep in mind used single six are an option for those willing to leave the confines of the cubicle. It is not 600 vs 200. There is a whole spectrum in between. I got a $200 single six this year as a project. All cosmetic and had it not been cosmetic, Ruger is good for the parts. Oh, yea, they did ship me a complete rear sight. I scrounged up a pair of grips. In good clean used condition $350 is not hard to find.

Good point - I remember back many years ago scraping up enough cash to buy a $169 Ruger MKII pistol!

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

Has to be stronger than the zinc alloy.
only grip frame is zamak, cylinder frame is aluminum.

Ruger enters the age of the disposable handgun.

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

Disposable?
Fwiw, my old '62 Colt's Frontier Scout 22 is completely a Zamak frame. It has unknown number of rounds through it, most likely HV, it is still accurate, reasonably 'tight' and in time. A good friend has it now, he is the 4th owner.
The Ruger should fair even better, donchathink?

Apparantly they will have a free pawl index from the factory. I personally do not like that, I like to hear and feel the clicks as I load... call me old fashion?? Wonder if they will accept the old style pawl that produces the clickey clickeys?

But the price is soooo tempting... I was set on buying a Single Six in the next few weeks, but now I don’t know??

Hoping Ruger did their homework and T&E on this gun a little more rigorously than that OTHER .22 of theirs that had a massive recall!!

Anyone else not super impressed by the weight. 30 oz vs 33 for single six. I was hoping it would be closer to 20oz that would have really been interesting

Ive been posting on just that on the other thread about this new offering.
Short story, no, Im not, especially for it being an alum. alloy frame (and a Zamak grip frame was mentioned?) This is chunky, though not as bad as that import 22 on the full size frame.
I was expecting 24-26ish oz.

It’s still lighter than the other single sixes, not by much, but some. Can anyone confirm that it will be compatible with single six holsters?

Too light isn’t great either, for balance or the feel of it. I personally think a single action should have a bit of mass to it.

Wonder if the bore diameter is spec’d for .22LR?

Truth be told, I’ve wanted a Heritage for a long time just due to the price, but every time I handled one the fit and finish kept me away. It seems Ruger has taken the basic concept and is crafting a good gun that many will probably associate with being more “trustworthy” than the Heritage guns.

I was all talking myself into the Single Six but with this new offering I just don’t know... especially since I have 0 use for .22 magnum...

Seems to be about a $300 difference in price. That’ll get an excellent leather holster with another $200 for ammo. That’s about 5K rounds for the bulk stuff. Interesting indeed, oh yes...

I just PRAY TO GOD they got this gun down and it won’t have any teething issues, but somehow my confidence isn’t super high in that category. It’s just a thrill either way that we’re getting a truly new Ruger rimfire sixgun. Maybe someday soon I’ll have Wranglers on my booty, and a Wrangler on my belt!!

These are gonna street at between $170 to $180. KyGunCo is already advertising a $172 and change price when they get them - I'm on their email alert as this is the best price I've seen as yet. It doesn't yet exist at Bud's.

Gunblast.com Review

Jeff Quinn's video review states that the grip frame is also aluminum.
