Guns Ruger Releases the Wrangler .22LR Single-Action Revolver Candice Horner April 19, 2019 We got hands-on with this little six-shooter recently at a Ruger media event, and it's a fun gun to plink around with. This type of gun is ideal to use for a new shooter; it has nearly no recoil, is safe because it's not going to go bang unless you pull back the hammer, and it's comfortable in large or small hands. We'll have an in-depth piece on the Wrangler soon, but until then, check out what Ruger said about it: Sturm, Ruger & Company, Inc. (NYSE: RGR) introduces the Wrangler™ single-action revolver chambered in .22 LR. Built on the legacy of the popular Ruger® Single-Six®, the new Wrangler complements Ruger’s rich history of producing quality, rugged, reliable single-action revolvers. The attractive price, combined with the affordability of rimfire ammunition, make this revolver ideal for learning to shoot, introducing friends or family to the sport, or just experiencing the fun of single-action shooting. With the introduction of the Single-Six in 1953, Bill Ruger pioneered the use of modern investment casting in firearms manufacturing to usher in a new level of affordability in single-action revolvers. Through the use of modern CNC-machining methods, lean manufacturing techniques and a new aluminum alloy cylinder frame, the Wrangler continues this tradition and sets a new bar for affordability while maintaining the rugged reliability that is the hallmark of Ruger firearms. Initially offered in three attractive Cerakote® models – black, silver and bronze – the new Wrangler is a feature-packed revolver and an exceptional value. The standard checkered black grip panels can be swapped for Single-Six panels, allowing for a variety of customized options. The Wrangler will fit in Single-Six holsters that accommodate 4-5/8” barrels. Single-action revolvers in .22 LR offer a safe and fun way to introduce new shooters to the sport, and can serve as a reminder to even the most experienced shooters that range time can be just plain fun. Whether it’s your first gun or your next, time at the range with the Wrangler promises to be well spent.
