Absolutely!

Lots of great experience and knowledge on this board. That said, Jim often has the best-looking “projects!” :P

The two I picked up, I got from Sportsmans Warehouse. I believe they were $199.99 each plus tax. Sounds like it's a reasonable price. Sportsmans doesn't charge for a backround check. Far as I know, no one does. Anyway, the time to jump is when you find one.

Oregon state charges $10, they do their own BG check.

Yep. Good price. My adult daughter just picked one up at our local Bi-Mart store at the same price you mentioned. It was her first purchase of a new handgun. A proud moment for her "papa". We have yet to get out to the range, but it's coming soon. This was the first "Wrangler" that either of us had seen in the flesh and at that price we were not leaving it behind. She won the coin toss and was all smiles. Made me happy she won the toss. Girls with guns! Gotta love it. Hopefully I'll get a chance to shoot it too. Go get yours before it's gone.

The Commonwealth of Virginia charges $2 for a background check.

Thank you!

That one is a .22 snubby I put together.

This rescue project started life as a '68 vintage Single Six with a 6 1/2" barrel that was badly pitted near the muzzle and was cut to 3 1/2" to make this shorty. Turned an additional 90 degrees, the barrel rollmark is now on the left side so it wasn't covered by the front sight. A NM single six ramp sight has been modified by lowering it to shoot to point of aim after dialing it in at the range. Overall it's only 8 1/2" long.

First it looked like this when completed:

Image

A USFA cammed slot ERH was fitted to allow for sufficient ejection rod travel by going around the cyl pin to eject cases, especially 22 mags. It also allows removal of the cylinder pin for cylinder changes in the field w/o removal of the ERH.

Image


This is it's final form:
Image

The grip frame is a steel short one from the NM 32 Mag single six “Baby” Vaquero for proportion with the short barrel and for easy packin'. The OM wide SBH trigger fills the wide slot in the NM grip frame. The new grip medallions were exchanged for the Old Model Blackhawk style.
A flat loading gate was used because they are cool.
