Examples of Ruger’s new Wrangler .22LR revolver are filtering out to the market and the initial feedback seems positive. Richard Mann with Empty Cases checks it out in a quick 60-seconds video, above, calling it a “great first gun for a son, daughter or wife.”
What Ruger basically did with the Wrangler was to produce a Vaquero version of their classic Single-Six series .22LR revolvers– it even takes the same grip panels– but at less than half the price. How cheap? The MSRP is $249 if that tells you anything.
Guns.com caught up with Ruger last month at the NRA Annual Meeting in Indy and got the low-down on specs.
For a much deeper dive on the entry-level rimfire revolver, 22Plinkster opines on the new gun for almost 12-minutes in the below. “If you want to get into single-action without spending a lot of money and still want a quality revolver, this one will do it,” he says.
