Ruger Announces New Birdshead-Style Wrangler Revolvers

U.S.A.-( Sturm, Ruger & Company, Inc. (NYSE: RGR) is proud to introduce three new models to the Wrangler line of single-action revolvers. These new models feature a 3.75” cold hammer-forged barrel and Ruger Birdshead-pattern grip frame, creating a compact and affordable firearm. Chambered in .22 LR and offered in three attractive Cerakote colors – black, silver and burnt bronze – these Wrangler revolvers complement Ruger’s rich history of producing quality, rugged, reliable single-action revolvers.

Each Wrangler features a blade front and integral notch rear sight, with standard black grip panels that can be swapped for aftermarket Ruger Birdshead-pattern grips. The revolver will fit in Single-Six® style holsters that accommodate a 3.75″ barrel. All Wranglers feature a transfer bar mechanism and loading gate interlock that provide an unparalleled measure of security against accidental discharge. The attractive price, combined with the affordability of rimfire ammunition, make this revolver ideal for learning to shoot, introducing friends or family to the sport, or just experiencing the fun of single-action shooting.

With the introduction of the Single-Six in 1953, Bill Ruger pioneered the use of modern investment casting in firearms manufacturing to usher in a new level of affordability in single-action revolvers. Through the use of modern CNC-machining methods, lean manufacturing techniques and a new aluminum alloy cylinder frame, the Wrangler continues this tradition and sets a new bar for affordability while maintaining the rugged reliability that is the hallmark of Ruger firearms.

Single-action revolvers in .22 LR offer a safe and fun way to introduce new shooters to the sport, and can serve as a reminder to even the most experienced shooters that range time can be just plain fun. Whether it’s your first gun or your next, time at the range with the Wrangler promises to be well spent.

When the Wrangler comes with the 22 mag cylinder like the Single six . I would consider buying one .


My thoughts as well.


I have the Single Six’s and I also have the Heritage Rough Rider and the Bar Keep, love my Ruger’s but the Heritage fills the bill about the 22 mag application. The only thing about the wait if you want Fiber-optics and adjustable rear sights.

I love my Wrangler but it needs a mag cylinder. That’s where Ruger needs to take the next step


affordability of rimfire ammo ? where ? I paid $3.00 for 500 rd brick in 66, $7.00 for same brick in 74. Now $49.99 for same brick. Buy it when you can,cause it ain`t gonna get no cheaper.

You have correctly identified the problem with paper currency or worse electronic payments. Our founding fathers were aware of the weaknesses of paper dollars, so they gave Congress, only, the authority to “… coin money…”. Paper can not be “coined”. Only metals can be “coined”. And I am pretty sure that the founders meant precious metals. To get around this requirement, light weight paper dollars used to represent heavy weight gold and silver coin. Then came Richard Shithouse Nixon, who took us off the gold standard in late 1971. The particularly memorable result was the price of gasoline sky rocketed… Read more »

This just in: White supremacist threat remains, but experts see hope in combatting online extremism Will Carless, USA TODAY Sun, December 26, 2021, 3:00 AM At this fall’s inaugural Eradicate Hate conference, held just 10 months after the Jan. 6 insurrection showed how deeply hateful ideologies pervade U.S. society, experts in violent domestic extremism discovered something surprising: hope. After years of frustration and alarm, several experts agreed they could be on the cusp of establishing ways to deter people from extremism and pull individuals out of hate groups. The new approaches come as President Joe Biden has prioritized tackling homegrown… Read more »


A feedback loop has been established between the politicians who promise benefits that the taxpayers grandchildren don’t have a prayer of paying, and the tax consumers who want those “free” benefits and will vote for those same politicians in order to get them. As a result FedGov couldn’t live within the limits of the gold standard, or the silver standard, and is now having real problems with the zinc standard. Anything that the government can’t devalue including the copper, nickle and lead used to make ammo will continue to go up in price as a result. The ammo will never… Read more »


And Ruger will put them only from exclusive dealers like they did with the bearcat birdshead and you won’t find one anywhere.
