we've really enjoyed our wranglers. just picked up a 2nd one that someone must have kept on a tractor like mentioned above, beat to heck but the perfect knock around gun, got it for cheap.

All of my single sixes were stainless and even though steel, their feel and operation just wasn’t as good as the lowly heritage. If they woulda felt like a new vaquero, I’d still have them.

That new Sidekick by Diamondback, it's a double action with a swing out cylinder., it has both the.22LR &.22Mag cylinders. It is a 9 shooter . The only drawback is that cast zinc frame.

Yep

The stainless single six prices are well over $600 here, for new ones.. I think my stainless Bearcat has an alloy ejector rod housing. Son found a Colt Frontier Scout in .22 Magnum, nice shooter. Anything with the pony is getting out of sight price wise.

I have a Flat Gate Single Six and a Wrangler.

The Single Six is definitely a nicer gun, but the Wrangler shoots about as good. The older Single Six has a better trigger, but the Wrangler, for what it cost is pretty good.

I'd say Ruger knocked that one out the park.

I finally bought the Heritage on sale with the 6.5" barrel, black finish and the American flag grips. Looking forward to testing it at the range. Seems robust, and I like the price too.

Take the ejection rod and backstrap screws, put some lockt-tite on them.

i have both the heritage roughrider and ruger wrangler (as well as a single six and bearcat).
roughrider: an occasional weekend plinker to get passed around until it gets tired, old, ugly like the village bicycle.
wrangler: what you go out to buy for your son’s first, solo, long weekend, fishing trip.
single six: what you bring on your move out to the wilderness.
bearcat: a gentleman’s forever piece to be handed down to a beloved grandchild.

I would suggest just releasing one leg of the trigger spring so that it can be returned to normal if needed. I have done that with most of my single actions and have not had any light primer strikes as sometimes occurs with that change

I had a Single Six Stainless with both cylinders in 6.5" barrel that was a tremendously accurate shooter. One of our sons was looking to buy the same, but was a wee bit tight on funds so I gave him mine. He loves it and carries it whenever in the outdoors in the desert or woods along with a .17 HMR rifle.

I bought a black and a silver Wrangler and have been happy with both. They are not close to the finishing of the Single Six but perform as expected for me. Reasonably accurate with those sights and now with a sweet trigger due to the above.

The Heritage shooters leave me cold with their look and feel......pass.

Don't waste your money on a heritage. Bought one when academy had there $99 sale on them a few years ago. Seemed like something fell off or broke each time i shot it and the customer service was useless. I now have a browning buckmark for a 22 pistol. A world of different in quality you really do get what you pay for.
