From Ruger . . .

Sturm, Ruger & Company, Inc. is pleased to introduce the Super Wrangler family of single-action revolvers. Building on the success of the affordably-priced Wrangler line introduced in 2019, the Super Wrangler features a robust steel cylinder frame and ships with two cylinders, allowing you to convert between inexpensive .22 LR ammunition and powerful .22 WMR ammunition.

Built on the legacy of the popular Ruger Single-Six, the Super Wrangler complements Ruger‘s rich history of producing quality, rugged, reliable single-action revolvers. The attractive price, combined with the affordability of rimfire ammunition, make this revolver ideal for learning to shoot, introducing friends or family to the sport, or just experiencing the fun of single-action shooting.

With the introduction of the Single-Six in 1953, Bill Ruger pioneered the use of modern investment casting in firearms manufacturing to usher in a new level of affordability in single-action revolvers. Through the use of modern CNC-machining methods and lean manufacturing techniques, the Super Wrangler continues this tradition and sets a new bar for affordability while maintaining the rugged reliability that is the hallmark of Ruger firearms.

Initially offered in three attractive Cerakote models – black, silver and bronze – the Super Wrangler features an adjustable target sight and 5.5-inch barrel. The standard checkered black grip panels can be swapped for Single-Six panels, allowing for a variety of customized options. The Super Wrangler will fit in Single-Six holsters that accommodate 5.5-inch barrels. Cylinders are unique to the Super Wrangler, and are not interchangeable with standard aluminum-frame Wrangler or Single-Six Convertible cylinders.

Single-action rimfire revolvers offer a safe and fun way to introduce new shooters to the sport and can serve as a reminder, to even the most experienced shooters, that range time can be just plain fun. Whether it’s your first firearm or your next, time at the range with the Super Wrangler promises to be well spent.

  1. I liked the original Wrangler, but the thin blade front sight combined with the simple fixed notch rear sight just wasn’t very friendly to my superannuated eyes. I suspect the adjustable sights on the Super Wrangler will do the trick for me. This looks like the perfect little kit gun. The added .22 Mag cylinder is just the icing on the cake. I can’t wait to put my hands on one.

    • My antiquated eyes with astigmatism are the exact opposite of yours.
      All of Ruger’s revolvers with adjustable sights look like a big black blur to me,
      but my eyes work fine with the fixed groove sight on the Vaquero and Bearcat (and regular Wrangler, presumably, although I don’t own one).
      Whenever I buy a Ruger revolver with adjustable sights (and I have a few), I have to replace the rear sight with an RMR mount and add an RMR just so I can get on target.
      The green-dot RMR works best with my astigmatism, and is as reliable as a revolver since it never requires batteries.

      • Yep, I have no problem with my Vaqueros, either. But the blade on the standard Wrangler is teeny-tiny; it’s much smaller than the Vaquero blade and just way too small for me. I hit the ramps on my adjustable sight Rugers with some hi-viz paint for contrast. That helps a lot, especially on black bullseye targets. I’ve not tried a red/green dot on any of my revolvers; it just seems like sacrilege! 😉

  2. nothing but fun.
    some of the other (older) makes hold more.
    i don’t think i’ve ever used the mag cyl.
    the bearcat is even better.

    • “i don’t think i’ve ever used the mag cyl.”

      Pretty much my experience, as well. That, and WMR ammo was like 3X the price of .22lr.

      Years back, I had the NAA mini-revolver with both cylinders. I think I ran maybe 4 cylinders of WMR through it, and put it away.

      I have another NAA mini now, but it’s .22lr only, so its a bit more compact than the dual-cylinder version. All the better for deep concealment…

    • tsbhoa. You should have seen what I saw Sunday a week ago. I was referred to a gentleman that had a “bunch” of guns for sale. Well, what’s a bunch? And what are they? I called the man. Ten minutes into the conversation I knew I wanted to meet him. Original Ruger Single Six? Every variation you can imagine. Colts. Brownings. After two hours I hadn’t seen all the handguns, but he was beginning to fade. I excused myself. Tomorrow I will see the long guns. It’s like being in a museum, except it’s for sale.

      • sharing is caring.
        sounds like a wonderful opportunity.
        choose wisely, i know you will because you know who they’ll be handed down to.
        my brother’s 30yrs my senior. i’d break a 3/ 4 ton axle trying to drag half his he doesn’t know what he has home.
        buyin’ .45 long colts for five bucks before he visited kokoreeree. he didn’t stop there.

    • .22 WMR has a projectile larger in diameter than .22lr, and a larger bore, so just fitting the WMR cylinder to it could be disastrous when fired… 🙁

        • Yes, but the Heritage is already investment-cast steel with poor tolerances. My aluminum-framed Wrangler is clearly not designed for the extra power of 22wmr, nor the extra length.

        • “Works fine with the Heritage revolver”

          It was likely designed for it.

          NAA says they cannot fit a WMR cylinder onto a .22lr mini-revolver, but they will be happy to fit a spare .22lr cylinder or 3 if you want, I think the charge is 50 bucks each…

    • {Singing} “Rugers are strange, when Cerecoted in Bronze… (something)

  3. I had to sell my Wrangler due to the tiny sights, but now it appears I’ll be able to add one back to the stable. Thanks, Ruger- this is Super!

  4. Okay steel frame, good. The old Wrangler I looked at was of less quality then the new Heritages being made. For the price I’d by a Heritage and my girlfiend did.
    Okay now another tidbit, these barrels bored to shoot .22WM will not give you the potential accuracy using standard .22LR.

    • “…these barrels bored to shoot .22WM will not give you the potential accuracy using standard .22LR.”

      Yeah, but how much more less accurate is a .22lr slug down a barrel bored for .22 WMR, anyways?

        • Now, possum here understands marksmanship and hunting. Aim small and hit small.👍

          Bore diameter for 22LR is .222, but is .224 for 22WMR. Depending on how precisely it has been cut, it can make a difference.

        • “Bore diameter for 22LR is .222, but is .224 for 22WMR.”

          What was the logic in not using .222 as the slug diameter in WMR? That way, the additional length of WMR would make it unable to chamber in .22lr’s chamber… 🙁

        • Apparently, the designer of the 22WMR didn’t even want to take a chance. Perhaps he was a lawyer or insurance adjuster? I always thought it was a bit goofy too. Maybe they were worried that someone would try to shoot a 22WMR in a 22LR bore that has had the throat burned out a bit? Barrel steels were softer back then.

          Here’s another tidbit. 22LR smoothbore, made only for shotshells, has a .217 spec bore (same diameter as the lands in a rifled 22LR barrel) and can’t shoot the standard diameter bullets. Not sure about the diameter of 22WMR smoothbores, but I would imagine they follow the same pattern and will be .219. Basically, a drilled out/formed bore that hasn’t had the rifling grooves cut into it.

      • Geoff, possum is correct. I’ve owned single action .22 revolvers with .22 LR/.22 MAG interchangeable cylinders for decades. Colts and Rugers. Still own a Colt now. In my experience, they are not as accurate as a handgun dedicated to .22 LR. However, if we’re talking .22 revolvers with interchangeable cylinders, I always found the .22 LR to be the most accurate. I almost disregard the magnum cylinder altogether. In fact, if I see a .22 revolver w only the magnum cylinder I always pass.

  5. I already have the Single Six with the 2 cylinders. Very nice gun. But you pay a premium for that nice.

  6. Ruger just loves that stupid backward front ramp instead of a Patridge front.

    I have no use for .22 Mag. Costs as much as 9mm and you can’t even reload the brass.

      • “Costs as much as 9mm and you can’t even reload the brass.”

        You *can* reload .22 rimfire in a pinch, one company makes a kit for 100 bucks to do so :

        https://22lrreloader.com/

        I’d personally be leery to make a habit out of it, out of wondering if the rim case might have been weakened by repeatedly reloading it.

        Thousands of pounds of pressure in the immediate location of my face and eyes gives me a bit of the willies.

        If someone wants to, go right on ahead. A kit like that could be valuable to have one day if the Leftist Scum ™ makes a grab for our guns and outlaws ammo sales…. 🙁

        • I’ve chewed on the idea of getting a kit like this, a couple times. Have yet to pony up. I started with individual Lee loaders long ago, then moved up to various presses. Something like this would be going full circle for me. Maybe whenever I retire…

    • That didn’t used to be true, .22 magnum used to be a bit cheaper than 9mm, but even so that’s not a negative for me. 9mm is the cheapest round you can buy except for .22 LR. Looking around I see they’re about tied for target quality ammo. That means .22 Magnum is tied for second cheapest round available, and the pistol also shoots the cheapest round available.

      I have a .22 magnum rifle and it’s a good varmint rifle, so I always have some on hand anyway.

  7. I’m old enough to remember how Papa Bill Ruger and S&W screwed over the 2A and the RKBA repeatedly in the past and are the root cause of a LOT of the gun-control losses we suffered in the 70’s, 80’s, & 90’s. I’ve never really seen them accept much blame, exclaim a mia culpa or apologize for the gun-control they were complicit in back then.

    it’s a free world, you young kids or older folks with bad memories can keep buying from these jerks who are a big part of the reason why we are in the sad state of gun rights we are in today. Personally, I’d rather eat a bag of Richards than buy from these companies ever again.

    Carry on…

    • Bill is dead and has been forever. S&W is not owned by the same folks that whored themselves to the clintons.

      • The NSSF is right now giving “A-grades” to the politicians that helped shove last year’s “bi-partisan” gun-control through Congress. They know the gun-owners who but their crap have short dim memories and will always come back to buy their crap no matter how badly they sell us out to the antis.

        If you ever wonder how we got in this situation we are in today just look at how quickly we act like scalded dogs skulking back with put tail between oir legs to the master that beats them with a shoe while begging for more abuse.

        Go ahead amd lick the hand that bites you. sucker!

  8. Looks like a major upgrade for not much more money. The only thing that annoyed me about the Wrangler is with the Ruger system the gun has no half cock, and the cylinder freewheels instead of having a stop for each chamber. Trying to line up the extractor rod with the tiny hole in a .22 chamber gets old fast when the cylinder doesn’t stand still.

  9. HAVE THE SS 6″
    RUGER 22LR 22WMR , LIKE EVERY THING ABOUT IT , EVEN THE WEIGHT IT’S HEAVY ,
    IT’S A KEEPER .
    I’M A REVOLVER TYPE GUY .
    GLAD RUGER STARTED THE NEW MODELS WITH 22LR N 22WMR CHANGE OUT CYLINDERS .
    UUUM DO I NEED ANOTHER ONE …

  10. A little over 10 years ago, I bought my daughter (maybe for me), a Heritage Manufacturing Rough Rider with adjustable sights. It came with a 22 LR and 22 WMR cylinder. I taught her to shoot with it. She has it now at her place. Ruger is over a decade too late, and more expensive than Heritage Manufacturing.
