Ruger Wrangler, winner or flame out?

Recommended Posts

I'm definitely getting one of these after they get the kinks worked out of the first run. It'll be under $200 I'm betting everywhere during the end of year holidays. Its a better heritage (better sights better everything) and the price is right. I hope they make a 6". Squirrels won't stand a chance.

The .357(.38)/9mm already exists as the Vaquero. They have a .45 Colt/.45ACP, too.

Overall finish is not going to be like Vaquero and 357 is probably a no go with alloy frame.

Standard SAAMI pressure 45 Long Colt is probably doable in alloy frame.  Some idiot will try running +P+ rhino rollers in a 45 LC Wrangler.  Ruger won't make it as they don't want exploding Wranglers.

Correct.  And as per my conversations with Ruger, keep in mind I am not an engineer... but this gun, this frame will only be 22LR.

Heritage is avail in 22 wmr... and Ruger felt it was not durable enough and only a matter of time... as such, THIS revolver will be 22lr only.

Already is... and the samples I shot, there were zero malfunctions and we ran the heck out of those guns.

And of course the guns are under full warranty.

So don't hesitate to buy one especially if you have permits already.

Murphy just may make every handgun $50 to $100 more expensive really soon.

Logistical question here.  If I pre-order one and then apply for my permits, do I run the risk of the permits coming in early, expiring and not getting delivery of the gun?  Just curious how to manage my permission slips here in the PRNJ.

Thanks!

Yes and no, permits are good for 90 days and you can extend them to 180 days total. As long as you don't see it taking any longer than that, you are fine.

Guns were being produced and being shipped out as far as I know. Should be avail immediately. These were production units.

Good to hear. I'm in NC so guns cost what they cost.

Funny that you mention that. Aren’t a few of the big gun stores in the Charlotte area fairly expensive? 

Iirc Hyatt Guns is one of the largest gun stores... not only in NC but in America.

They will sell in NJ for that price point...  People might burn a permit on one if they cant figure out what they want or just dont want to lose a hard earned permit.

 

That's a great point!  It's cheap enough and a gun you can always find a use for.... Especially if pistol permits go up to $50 a pop.

I'm not often in the Charlotte area, but that county is rough for 2A. Tons of gun stores between Greensboro and Raleigh. My usual is a place in Southern Pines.

I know gun store prices in Fayetteville tend to be very high but transfer costs can be as low as $15. A lot of soldiers don't care about money. Once they get their hands on a gun they want, they will buy it then no matter the cost, especially if the gun store has a range on site. A lot of great service and a wealth of knowledge in many of these places. If I do a transfer I always at least buy a box of overpriced ammo after chatting a bit.

im not sure how I've never heard of Hyatt though. Will have to make the trip.

did Ruger make any mention of making Wranglers in other barrel lengths?

No, they did not.  Just this gun in 3 flavors.   And definitely 22lr only.

There is A LOT of interest in the gun just based on searches... I think far above what anyone expected.  Will be interesting to see how it stabilizes past NRA show and the next few months.

    • A person exercising their rights, breaking no law should not have a gun pointed at him. Care to explain how that is a strawman? The IRS is different?  How so?  A man following the law (the deputy) oh I can't be here with my gear?  okay i'll leave.  Rentacop procedes to point gun at a non threat.  And you think this is completely different?  Technically the rentacop was fired, arrested and charged.  Technically the deputy wasn't. So in your opinion anyone perceiving a threat is justified in taking lethal action against the perceived threat.   So when I see a bunch of guys in vests and black BDUs and cattying sidearms, i would be justified in pointing a gun at them?  Every Tuesday at lunch.  Funny how i am able to resist.  Man i dont even call the cops. Champion? No.  Support a person exercising their constituional protected rights absolutely. So your stance is  "I do not agree with what you have to say, but I'll defend to the death your right to say it. Unless I disagree or it might cause someone distress" My stance stops at the period.  
    • Strawman, again, really? Cant simplify it any further for you. I think you get the points made but it breaks your argument so here we go, strawman again.    You brought up the IRS guy. How about an actual response to my comments. Here they are again: But if you are referencing the guy that drew down on the local deputy at the IRS, guess what, he was actually correct that local LE does not have the authority to be armed on federal property. As I understand it that is the actual law. So now what? His judgement was poor but technically correct? Following your logic I would expect you to actually be siding with the security guard because the LAW says the deputy cannot be armed on the premises and the guard was following the law. BUT reasonable judgement would dictate no real threat existed. This is the exact flip side of wallmart. The deputy technically broke the law but was clearly not a threat. The "auditor" was within the law but one could easily articulate he looked like a threat given the totality of the circumstances and the timing of the Texas Wallmart shooting.  
    • Well isn't that great as long as you agree with the point of view all is wonderful.  If you don't agree its okay to shoot them.
