Ruger announced a Wrangler .22LR single-action revolver with a shorter (3.75-inch rather than the standard 4.62-inch) barrel and an abbreviated “bird’s head” grip.
Ruger announced their cute (and mad affordable) little Wrangler .22LR single-action six-shooters a couple of years ago and, as they can usually be had for less than $175, they have proved popular.
However, for those looking to go smaller, the company just announced a version with a shorter (3.75-inch rather than the standard 4.62-inch) barrel and an abbreviated “bird’s head” grip, trimming about two inches in length from the legacy Wrangler.
This will surely make the more comfortable gun a hit with those who use a small rimfire for trail and garden plot forays.
MSRP is $279, just $10 more than the standard model. Plus, they are available in three assorted colors all for the same price.
