Ruger introduces the Wrangler single-action revolver chambered in .22 LR. The Wrangler is built on the legacy of the Ruger Single-Six revolver. The Wrangler is an example of Ruger’s history of producing quality, reliable single-action revolvers. The price, combined with the affordability of rimfire ammunition, make this a great revolver for learning to shoot, introducing friends or family to the sport, or just experiencing the fun of single-action shooting.
Bill Ruger pioneered the use of modern investment casting in firearms manufacturing with the introduction of the Single-Six in 1953, ushering in a new level of affordability in single-action revolvers. The Wrangler continues the tradition through the use of modern CNC-machining methods, lean manufacturing techniques and a new aluminum alloy cylinder frame. The Wrangler sets a new bar for affordability while maintaining the rugged reliability, a staple of Ruger firearms.
The Wrangler is initially offered in three attractive Cerakote models: black, silver and bronze. The new Wrangler is a feature-packed revolver at a great price. 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.
