Default New Ruger Wrangler

I have seen them, waiting for my dealer to get more in so I can buy a couple. Has anyone bought one yet, and how does it perform. I am excited to get one, $179 plus tax is great. Wallacem in Ga

Bought mine from Smoky Mountain Guns and Ammo online. Gun is just like a Single Six and shoots the same. Have about 200 rounds thru it now and it is getting better or I am one. It is a good gun and miles ahead of a Heritage.

The Government has protected us here in MN from the evil that is the Ruger Wrangler.

EQ, not being from MN, I don’t have any idea of what you’re talking about. Are there restrictions on single actions?

With a frame and cylinder made of aluminum, it’s considered a Saturday night special in Minnesota, and therefore illegal.

The cylinder isn’t aluminum but steel. The frame of the Wrangler is A380 alloy. After looking at MN laws, the frame melting point meets the requirement but the tensile strength is the problem, about 8,000 psi short of being of the legal 55,000 psi. Question, since A6 nylon (Glock frame polymer) fails to meet the melting point and tensile strength threshold, how can they be sold in MN?

Excellent question. Likely because the legislators got some "kickback" from Glock, while Ruger didn't "ante up" to play the corruption game.

I believe the problem is the Zymak(?) grip frame, which is the same stuff “Saturday Night Specials “ were made of back in the day.
