Ruger’s Tremendous Wrangler Receive US

Ruger advertises the Tremendous Wrangler will settle for Single-Six grips. True? Sure, no, perhaps. Going into my components field, I attempted a number of XR3-RED manufacturing unit unique grips in addition to customized grips. They do match, they really feel extra comfy to my hand than the equipped plastic grips on the Wranglers, they usually actually appeared higher. Nevertheless, the grip frames of the Wranglers are about 1/16″ longer and protrude under older grips. The underside space of the backstrap additionally protrude barely past the grip panel. I’ve a number of New Mannequin metal grip frames in my components field and am pondering of swapping these out for the grip frames that include the Tremendous Wrangler.

As they got here from the manufacturing unit, the Tremendous Wranglers, simply as the unique Wranglers, have heavier set off pulls than what I want. A Taffin Instantaneous Set off Job introduced them right down to proper at 3 lbs. For test-firing, I went with 12 types of .22 Lengthy Rifle ammunition consisting of each lead- and copper-plated variations, in addition to strong and hollow-plated examples. Sixguns and rifles each could be choosy on the subject of .22 Lengthy Rifle ammunition, so I at all times attempt to give you loads of samples to attempt. The perfect masses I discovered to be CCI Inexperienced Tag with a muzzle velocity of 939 fps and a 1″ group; CCI SGB at 1,010 fps and the identical group, whereas CCI Quiet .22, SK Pistol Match and Remington Yellow Jackets all got here in at 1⅛” with muzzle velocities of 612, 865, and 1,145 fps. This makes each the SGB and Yellow Jackets those to achieve for to make use of on varmints and small recreation. All targets had been shot at 17 yards.

Switching to .22 Magnum masses, I had six types of ammunition at my disposal and I obtained the perfect general outcomes with all three sixguns utilizing the Armscor HPs, which put 5 pictures into 1½” with every of the three Tremendous Wranglers with velocities working 1,248, 1,333 and 1,347 fps. My two most correct masses had been the Federal 50-grain HP giving a 1″ group with a muzzle velocity of 1,089 fps. My alternative for varmints and small recreation is the 30-grain Remington Accu-Tip with a 1¼” group on the muzzle velocity of 1,560 fps — the quickest pace recorded. The Maxi-Magazine HP is simply barely slower; nonetheless, nowhere close to as correct.

A smart man at Ruger as soon as advised a bunch of writers, “It doesn’t matter what we make, somebody desires one thing else.” And sure, I do need one thing else, and that may be a Tremendous Wrangler Magnum “Cavalry Mannequin” with the identical options as the present Tremendous variations however with a 7½” barrel. In the meantime, I’ll get pleasure from these 5½” Tremendous Wranglers and the 7½” Wranglers till the 2 are blended. The Wrangler has confirmed to be a very fashionable small-bore sixgun, so we may see extra variations. Hopefully!

The MSRP for the Tremendous Wranglers is at the moment $329, whereas the Ruger Single-Six Convertible has a price ticket of $799. Going with the Tremendous Wrangler leaves a giant chunk of cash for purchasing ammunition with out sacrificing any operational options. It additionally has a end that matches up simply with onerous out of doors use.
