    Ruger Wrangler first impressions

    Took the new SA Wrangler to the 50' indoor range

    It is a nicely balanced SA with comfortable trigger pull

    The cylinder is tight... (Doesn't spin freely at all) but I wonder if they designed it that way.

    The sight picture is one I prefer... A rounded rear notch that is filled by the front blade

    It shot at point of aim at 50'

    I shot a variety of ammo and all could be ejected easily (no sticking)

    The cylinder does not stop or index for easy ejection... One has to know where stop rotating it to line it up with ejection rod

    My assessment... Well done Ruger on a quality $160 SA... But it is no Single Six (should have kept mine)

    Glad I have this to go along with the other couple of SA .22s in my collection.

    Nice gun, and it is a Ruger. But I think the Rough Rider stacks up to it pretty well (for much less $$), although I do agree that the Wrangler is the higher quality revolver.

    Nice report! I have the Heritage, but if seeking another the Wrangler would be on the list.
    “…democratic socialism, the great utopia of the last few generations, is not only unachievable but that to strive for it produces something utterly different – the very destruction of freedom itself.
