Just got me a black Wrangler, look forward to trying it out!

Good deal, try it out and give us feedback ! I really like the two I got .That od green is really nice . Oh , and the newest wrangler has a much easier to open loading gate compared to the first . Has anyone else noticed this on the later production guns ? :?:

Over the course of 200 rounds of mixed ammo this weekend, my Wrangler is grouping as well as any other .22 handgun I have ever tried. The POI at 10 yards is about 2" low so I figger I'll just file a bit off the front sight until it gets to my liking. The Wrangler looks and feels like a lower price edition Single Six with the same performance of the original- which is really what it is. Very happy with this gun!

I'm not filing a front fixed sight, no permanent alteration for me. Got some sight paint mail order, experimenting with first priming white then adding dots of red or green paint. Reminds me of the pins on a bow sight. Will see how it works out. Some may object to the appearance, but temporary and easy to remove

I do paint my sights with white nail polish. The front sight is not integral to the barrel, just a pressed in blade with its own parts listing. Most reviews I have read on the Wrangler indicate that they tend to shoot low from the factory.

The front sight on my Wrangler was almost 7/32" tall originally. I filed it down to 6/32" and kept the sloping contour as much as I could. Took it out today after work and found that 6/32" is right on the money. At 10 yards it is either dead on or slightly high depending on which ammo is being used. Now that I think about it, the bronze finish is starting to grow on me. Hmmm...

I have now put around 250 rounds through my Wrangler and it just keeps getting better. This revolver is alot more accurate than I am capable of doing. Way to go Ruger, a bronze one is definitely in my future!

Picked up another Wrangler 2002 this week. Loading gate is much easier to open than the early ones. I added a Belt Mountain Base Pin for a Single Six and was rewarded with a nice, tight lock up. I'm a happy camper.

Best Regards,

I seem to see way more of the Black ones and Silver Wranglers for sale than the Bronze. Am I correct or are the Bronze available in your areas?

I've still not shot mine and doubt I will. I managed to get a consecutive numbered set of the bronze Wranglers and they're still in the boxes and un-turned.
