Ruger Wranglers

Recommended Posts

I just picked up two Black Ruger Wranglers at the gun show today. 

199.98 each .

I bought them for my Grandsons to shoot with there Henry Lever Action Rifles .

A little too heavy of a hammer spring for the Grandkids. 

But with the grips pulled off .

It looks like a Single Six spring kit should drop right in .

Should be years of fun for the Grandkids and two at a cheaper cost then  One Single Six .

That's what I need to do for the Grandkids. 

They got strong hammer springs in them for sure.

Rooster I put Wolf springs in mine. As I recall the 17 lb hammer and 30 oz trigger springs. They set off all the brands of 22s without a glitch. Part # 17116 contains the  2 mentioned plus a stouter cylinder pin spring.

$179.99 x 2 today!
Cashed in a $100 gift card = $259.98 + $10 OSP fee.
Twenty minute transaction!

Add-on $25.98 for two Wolff spring packs...under $300 total for the pair.

Wolff Single Six 15# hammer springs and for young one’s I would go 40 oz trigger springs.

Interested minds who wants to know .

One at a time ,

I cut one ring off the hammer spring .

Then I  put back together

and tried the gun .

I ended up cutting off six

( 6 ) rings off.

And left One leg off the trigger spring.  

 

Wow ! :huh:

What a difference it made .

 

I have  No scale to measure by .

But I ended up with a pretty nice hammer draw and a decent trigger pull .

Best part .

No extra money spent .

So if you didn't know .

Now you know :D

The Wranglers are the same frame/grip size as the Single Six.

I think the premise is that they can be melted down after they are used in a crime , same thing for some Heritage firearms.

How do you guys insure an empty chamber is under the hammer on 22s?  I've got a Ruger Bearcat and a few up and coming Buckaroos/ettes and honestly the hard part for them is making sure they load one skip one properly.  I have debated about simply waiting until they can candle light 38 loads.

One method is to mark the exterior of the cylinder (a dot of paint or whiteout) on both sides of the “designated” empty chamber.  One shooter stuffed a yellow foam plug into the chamber.  When the gun is loaded the marks should flank the top strap.

I have no idea how SASS would approve of this with recessed cylinder chambers .

But I have NO intention of using them for SASS .

Just Sayin.

Wranglers aren't the only pistols with recessed cylinders. We've dealt with recessed cylinders since SASS started. It's not rocket science. Just mark the empty. Many frontiersman will remove a nipple or paint the nipple to show the empty. I have an old Super Blackwack that is recessed, EAA single actions, and several others.

I would recommend not teaching anyone the load one, skip one, lower the hammer and blow a hole in the loading table technique. Seen it too many times.

How do you recommend loading a revolver?  I have always loaded one, skipped, loaded four and then eased the hammer down visually making sure it is going on an empty.

Load five, gently spin the cylinder, checking for high primers or other problems, then visually turn cylinder until empty chamber aligns with hammer and lower hammer gently.
