Sturm, Ruger & Company, Inc. has added three new models to its Wrangler line of single-action revolvers. These new models feature a 3.75-inch cold-hammer-forged barrel, and a Ruger Birdshead-pattern grip frame, for a compact firearm. Chambered in .22 LR and offered in three attractive Cerakote colors—black, silver and burnt bronze—these Wrangler revolvers make for durable yet elegant plinkers.
Each Wrangler features a blade front and integral-notch rear sight, with standard black grip panels that can be swapped for aftermarket Ruger Birdshead-pattern grips. The revolver will fit in Single-Six-style holsters that accommodate the 3.75-inch barrel. All Wranglers feature a transfer-bar mechanism and loading gate interlock that provide a measure of security against accidental discharge. The 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.
