I had 2 Heritage. Hated them. Finally sold them.
Was looking at the Wranglers, but never pulled the trigger.

Came across a '69 Old Model Blackhawk with both cylinders. Couldn't resist.

The blueing is worn. The wood is a bit rough. But the cyl is tight, lock up is good and the trigger is light and crisp.

I do not own a Wrangler but I came across a YouTube video about a warning on dry fry. Check out Baz on Blades. It seem that Ruger says it is okay to dry fire but his Wrangler got where he could not load any ammo into the cylinders.
I personally do not dry fire any revolver but this could be an issue with your Wrangler. Watch the video and be careful.

This happened with my SP-101, it began as little tiny marks on the rim of the chambers. I was able to fix it with a bit of fine emery paper. I recommend #6 wall anchors, the yellow ones, the plastic rim is just right. Just be careful not to wear it out.
Best,
Rob

Use the proper size rubber grommet between hammer and pistol and should work great--they are great for 1911 and CZ style pistols!!!!!

I recently bought a used 1980 production year RUGER Single Six with .22 LR and .22 WMR cylinders. It was in very good condition with the blueing worn off in some areas from holster wear. Gives it character IMO. The .22 WMR cylinder had never been used which was good B/C that's why I bought it, to go with my RUGER 96/.22 WMR lever action rifle as a "companion pistol".

So, I post now to say that the quality of my Single Six shows why I paid $320. for an old revolver. The quality is top notch in every aspect. Ex. The very clean and crisp trigger pull is only 1 lb. 10 oz.!! WOW! (measured on my digital Wheeler pull gauge)
*I realize the quality of materials in Wranglers and some other newer inexpensive RUGER revolvers is lower as is their price, even than what I paid for a used Single Six, and made for those on a budget. So the old saying "You get what you pay for." (if you're lucky) is true. I do think Wranglers are still a good buy for the money because they are reliable.

I made this add a few days ago to go with the bronze one I have.
View attachment 12656
I had my eye on this since it hit the market, I was in the Gun Store today and I noticed three in the display case on was Black finish one was Silver finish and one Burnt Bronze finish, The Burnt bronze caught my eye and I decided to make a purchase it was $195.00 out the door with my Military Veterans discount. I went to my step son's Body shop went out back and shot a tin can six times. That can jump and spun each time I hit it the accuracy is very good. I am very impressed with the purchase . The firing pin puts a good dent in the rim no lite strike with this pistol. I went home and did a short YouTube Review I will post it when its done uploading.

Congratulations on your new Wrangler. Be aware that Blaz on Blades reported problems with dry firing this revolver. You may want to review his video on YouTube. Not saying you will have a problem but I never dry fire any revolver.
Enjoy and good shooting.

Nice to have two of them OP! I just have one. Here it is.

I love to shoot this revolver!
I have the same Wrangler as you I like the burnt bronze color I sent off my 10 / 22 to be done if I like it I will do my Henry .22 Lever Action to match it.
