When Ruger Wrangler popped out in 2019, it was a basic no-frills .22 LR single-action revolver styled on their well-liked Single-Six but cheaper.
We laid hands on early Wrangler models at NRAAM four years ago and thought it was okay, but wished it had better sights, a longer barrel, and was sold with an option to swap out the .22 LR cylinder for a .22 Mag, which would make it a lot more capable. After all, Heritage makes their little single-actioned rimfires in Georgia with much the same convertible option, and for a bargain basement price.
Well, it turns out that Ruger has finally done to the Ruger what it should have done in the first place– the new Super Wrangler, announced today, has better sights, a longer barrel, and is sold complete with a .22 LR cylinder, and one for a .22 Mag.
The asking price is $329, which is still half that of a Single Six convertible.
