Saw my first one, today, at our LGS. Actually not bad. Lockup was nice and tight and didn't feel at flimsy like I thought it might. Crisp, but very heavy trigger. Reminded me of what I've been seeing on current production Bearcats. Not sure what mods could be done. Fixed gutter sight setup like the Bearcat, too. Not my favorite, but certainly in line with the price of the gun. Overall, can't say I was really tempted, but not cheapie I thought it might be.

Will it fit your "high standard of beauty"? I don't think it's exactly ugly, but not a good looking gun, either. The action parts are supposedly like the Single-Six, so maybe the same things will improve the trigger.

Close enough, given that I don't think any single action revolver is ugly out of the box. Sure, some folks do some crazy stuff to SAs and make them iffy in the beauty department, but I could overlook a lot on the Wrangler if it shoots, well. Watching for more range reports.

Handled one yesterday, gone today

Was at Sportsman's Warehouse yesterday, and they had two black Wranglers. Didn't check one over but a couple of minutes.

Good fit and finish, just a few marks inside the cylinder window. Black plastic grips fit a tiny bit inside the frame edges, not bad. The finish was even and being flat, it set off the glossy grips. I think the all black would be my choice, the others being two toned just doesn't get it.

The free spin cylinder was just that. If you gave it a good start, it would probably make three spins. I like my Bearcat's loading notch better. Trigger was just a little heavier than my Bearcats, but cocking the hammer was pretty stiff. One thing I've seen in reviews is the stiff loading gate with a sharp edge. I'll agree with that, the one real flaw I noted. Surely it would lighten up with some use.

Anyhow, their price was $ 199.99, and it's worth every bit of that. I went back this morning to get a box of .32 , and both Wranglers were gone, sold in less than 24 hours.

Do you think they will eventually go lower than $ 199.99?

A few online posts are mentioning $179.99 at online sellers, but you'd have to pay the FFL fee for accepting it. Makes $199 at the LGS a better deal. I'm hearing that many dealers say Ruger already has a three month backlog of orders.

Seems a bit ironic that MN would have a melting point law.
