HAVE READ A BUNCH ABOUT THEM ON OTHER INTERNET VENUES. SHUD BE AVAILABLE FOR AROUND $200, THEY ARE SUPPOSE TO SHOOT WELL AND, WHAT THE HECK, FOR AROUND $200 FOR A FIXED SIGHT RUGER "VAQUERO LOOKING/SINGLE SIX TYPE" 22lr REVOLVER, WHAT YOU GOT TO LOSE. I KEEP CHECKING AT THE LOCAL ACADEMY SPORTING GOODS STORE BUT THE COUNTER GUYS THERE DO NOT KNOW ANYTHING ABOUT THEM, BUT EVENTUALLY THEY SHUD BE AVAILABLE THERE. I WILL GET AT LEAST 1 (THEY COME IN 3 CERAKOTE COLORS).

Took a quick look at Buds, but did not see a listing for the Wrangler. Ruger new model availability has historically been some time after its introductory announcement.

I already have a few 22s even a Heritage for when running Traplines. Got on sale new for $100.00 (Watch at Christmas)
It is plenty accurate enough for the closer shots. But the review I read about impressed me with the accuracy of the Wrangler. And,,, The free wheel cylinder is very appealing.

Looks interesting. Only thing I don?t like is the fixed sights, but there is a plethora of other 22 pistols that have them.

The Wrangler series is designed around a price point and made to to be affordable and of good quality. If it would have adjustable sights it would compete too directly with the Single Six model. Designed correctly, a fixed sight can be accurate. And if it becomes a problem, the front sight can be altered or made replaceable. A well-designed and affordable 22 S,L and Long Rifle capable trail-gun is what this is. Or a just fun gun to shoot and plink around. Heck, you can punch holes in your leather belt with a 22 if you need too.

Saw thread on another forum.. Seems most of the groaning is about

the casting quality on the grip frame butt... No talk of bad

groups.. ITS A $200 GUN!!! lf you want real quality in a 22RF go

get a FA 22rf. Just ADD a zero to that two hund dollar Ruger price tag

I went and looked them over and took a Bronze one home. Time will tell but for the price i don't see how it can fail to satisfy. I have missed the little bearcat ever since it left so this should help fill the hole; from a plinker/fun perspective.
