The Ruger Wrangler revolver is chambered for the .22 Long Rifle cartridge and is intended to be used with any .22 Long Rifle, .22 Long, or .22 Short ammunition, in subsonic, standard, high velocity, or hyper velocity, so long as the ammunition is manufactured to U.S. Industry Standards. The patented Ruger New Model mechanism incorporates a transfer bar. The transfer bar – which is raised into firing position as the trigger is pulled to the rear – transmits the energy of the hammer blow to the firing pin. This transfer bar mechanism makes a “safety” notch unnecessary. The cold hammer-forged barrel of the Wrangler results in ultra-precise rifling that provides exceptional accuracy and longevity. A Cerakote finish provides rugged reliability in all environments.
