Ruger recently announced that it would be expanding its popular line of six-shot Wrangler revolvers.
Chambered in .22LR, these single-action wheelies now come in new colors and with different barrel-length options.
Those new Cerokote finishes include black, silver, and burnt bronze.

And, purchasers can now opt for a 6.5 – or 7.5-inch barrel, a jump up in size from the original 4.62-inch barrel. Or, they can downsize to a 3.75-inch barrel.
“The attractive price, combined with the affordability of rimfire ammunition, make these revolvers ideal for learning to shoot, introducing friends or family to the sport, or just experiencing the fun of single-action shoot,” said Ruger in a recent e-blast.
MSRP on all models is $269.
- Blade front and integral notch rear sights.

Will the Wrangler with a 7.5″ barrel help with accuracy? Could we send in our 4+ inch Ruger Wranglers and pay to get the short barrel replaced with the 7.5″ one?
Don’t knock these until you shoot one. I bought my son and son-in-law each one of these. They have other guns, but these are economical and fun to shoot. Just an hour of informal plinking is a blast.
Good guns at a good price. But I want to see them come with adjustable sights. The Single Six is a great gun, but too pricey for a lot of folks. Put some good sights on the Wranger and you’d corner the SA .22 market.
Guys, there’s probably millions of us that own Ruger .22 revolvers and enjoy the hell out of them. Ruger makes a quality firearm and has no apologies owed to anyone and has certainly NOT cheapened their line. Think about this…I own and like some of the bigger boys but the arthritis in my hands doesn’t allow me to use them all that often…hence…Twenty Two to the Rescue and fun to shoot to boot!
Cheers to Ruger for appreciating the ‘entry level’ market both in cost and configuration.
Also…. NO SAFETY!
Heritage, are you listening?
Sad Ruger really pushing the junk market and not concentrating on the real revolvers.
Every manufacturer makes guns for those of us who can’t afford the nicer ones that we all want. Why do you think they even introduced the Wrangler at all? It’s because everyone wants a “Single Six” but can’t afford it…
Sure, but should “every” manufacturer do so or should some take enough pride in their brand to resist the urge to cheapen it?
There are many manufacturers who make and sell budget single action revolvers. Personally, I think this is a poor decision by Ruger, which has a long history as a maker of innovative, quality firearms.
It may have been a bad decision to some, but it’s been successful and profitable one for Ruger. Is it a Single Six? No, it wasn’t meant to be. Is it as much fun to shoot as a Single Six! Oh, hell yes! Mine has been a hoot to shoot and I’ll probably end up getting a 6.5″ and a 7’5″ just for the fun of it.
Got to agree no comp to Ruger security six from 1982
