    Heritage RR vs Ruger Wrangler

    Picked up a Wrangler today. I've been putting it off because I have my RR, but it was cheap and there are other reasons for me to own the Ruger....for my collection if nothing else. Now, the Ruger uses better materials of construction and the anodized aluminum is a nicer finish than black paint on zamak. The wrangler is tighter. The trigger hasn't had time to break in and is stiffer than the RR. Far as accuracy, they're about the same and they're both picky about what they like to be fed.

    I'll keep both. The Ruger has no mag cylinder and I have the mag cylinder with the RR. PLUS, the RR is the fake pearl grip/round but 3.5" which looks WAY cool. The Ruger was actually 75 bucks cheaper. It was under 200 bucks, so I really couldn't resist it.

    I like the feel of them. But I just can't take any of those three finishes

    One of my LGS offered me a heck of a deal on the Wrangler, but I already own a Single Six and a Heritage and on top of that I acquired the all pimp gold Tanfoglio E15.

    The black finish looks good.

    The Wrangler is the gun on the left. I threw in a .357 Blackhawk flat top and a Heritage RR in the shot.

    Comparison -- I can't compare the shooting as I have only owned Heritage Rough Riders (have had two, a 4.75 inch that I traded for a 6.5 inch which is present one I own).

    I can say I like the look of the Heritage and the many choices (including a MAG Cylinder if you want that - I don't) much better than the Wrangler. BTW, my Heritages have been the cheaper models with blue and the red handles, I like the other models better for looks. I also like the price on Heritage Rough Riders a lot better (from $99.99 to $119.99 for most and some for $129.99 - add $29.99 for an extra MAG Cylinder) is better for me than $179.99 for a Wrangler.

    As far as my experience - the first 4.75 inch was $119.99 at BUD's (included 30 MIN FREE Range time for what that is worth, not worth much). It had a nicer looking grip than the 6.5 inch. The problem was after some time, I began to see Keyholing (at first I did not know what hat was, thought it was bad AMMO with tumbling projectiles). It seemed less of a problem with slower AMMO (below 1250 FPS and 710 FPS was better yet, so I was shooting the 1135 FPS Aquilla). Then started having issues with say 1135 FPS I had been using (costs more than my usual REM Thunderbolt also).

    So, I traded the gun for a 6.5 inch at BUD'S -- gave me $70 on trade, but the gun similar model was a bit higher at $129.99 than some other places. The allowed trade was higher, so I went with BUD's deal.

    MY BAD as I did not examine the gun finishes until I got home to clean it. I realize it had a big OBVIOUS flaw (lack of bluing on the cylinder on one are, even the box was stained where the cylinder had been laying). Also, in daylight realized the frame finish was sub par. I contacted TAURUS (sent them pictures on CHAT) and they took the gun back. They gave it a new cylinder and redid the frame finish. The frame is not perfect and I managed to put a couple small scratches on it (covered up with some Magic Marker).

    OK, main thing is it shoots OK as far as I am concerned. Took me awhile to align the sights (that is where to position the front sight in relation to the "U" or "V" grove back sight. I found the front sight needs to be a bit right of center and a bit high on the "U" or "V". I reckon the rest is me (Trigger Pull) or AMMO (cheap Remington Thunderbolt).

    I am satisfied for plinking and target shooting to use $0.03 per round AMMO (got some as low as $0.022 per round on sale at FLOYD'S Golf and Guns in Sevierville, TN) and a cheap (low priced pistol at $119.99. Here are target pictures last times at the range, I have been taking it along with other guns and shooting 30 or so rounds each time I go. Just fun to play with a single action old west type revolver.

    Here is a picture of the Original Cylinder (learned my lesson INSPECT thoroughly Before Buying - not just a function test, I rotated the cylinder with the Hammer and all seemed OK). Also, note the frame finish (it dd not show up much under the dealers light). Still. DUMB, how could I miss that cylinder flaw.

    TARGET Pictures, I think I have the sight picture figured out (drew into the picture).
