Ruger's Rimfire "Six-Shooter".
Sturm, Ruger and Company was founded in 1949 by business partners Alexander ("Alex") McCormick Sturm and William ("Bill") Batterman Ruger. Prior to the partnership, Bill Ruger had previously designed machine guns for the U.S. military during World War II and afterwards, successfully duplicated two Japanese Baby Nambu pistols in his garage based on samples acquired from a Marine.

It would serve as the basis for launching the company when Ruger ingeniously combined the looks of a German 9mm Luger with rimfire engineering from the Colt Woodsman and the operating mechanism of the Nambu. Bill Ruger and Alex Sturm rented a small machine shop in Southport, Connecticut and immediately introduced the world to the greatest rimfire pistol in history-- the legendary MK-I, which still continues to this day in its third generation.


Alex Sturm was married to the granddaughter of President Teddy Roosevelt, was a Yale graduate, a talented artist and business entrepreneur that supplied the capital investment to start the fledgling company. In addition, he personally designed the famous Germanic heraldic red eagle that still serves as Ruger's company logo.

Bill Ruger supplied the business acumen plus technical-know-how as a skilled gunsmith and celebrated inventor. Tragically in 1951, Alex Sturm fell seriously ill and died at the age of 28 just as the company was beginning to gain traction.

After Sturm's passing, Bill Ruger mourned the loss of his old friend and business partner by permanently changing the company's distinctive red eagle logo to solid black (or white, shrouded in black), where it remains to this day in remembrance. Bill Ruger would go on to lead the company to world prominence, becoming the largest manufacturer of firearms in the United States.

A pioneering legend in American industry until his death in 2002, Ruger had a hand in the design and styling of every single gun the company produced while under his direction. To date, Sturm Ruger has manufactured more than 30-million firearms, while also becoming a leading supplier of precision investment castings in diverse industries such as aerospace, automotive and even golf clubs.

Introducing the Wrangler Single-Action revolver from Ruger. Built on the legacy of the popular Ruger Single-Six, the new Wrangler complements Ruger's rich history of producing quality, rugged, reliable single-action revolvers. The attractive price, combined with the affordability of rimfire ammunition, make this revolver ideal for learning to shoot, introducing friends or family to the sport, or just experiencing the fun of single-action shooting.

This is what the company refers to as a "New Model" Single Six revolver. The designation in Ruger nomenclature actually refers to the incorporation of a transfer bar safety mechanism. When the hammer is fully forward, it rests on the frame and cannot contact the firing pin.

This makes it nearly impossible for the gun to "go off" when dropped or banged. The transfer bar rises as the hammer is cocked. Then when the trigger is pulled and the hammer falls, it hits the transfer bar-- thus "transferring" its energy to the firing pin and discharging the handgun.

The gun has a 4-5/8" barrel and weighs in at just over 30- ounces. It wears a Cerakote finish and sports durable fixed front and rear sights. The hardwood grips have the Ruger logo embossed on each panel.

Loading is accomplished by opening the loading gate and dropping a cartridge down into each individual chamber one at a time. Conversely, unloading entails opening the loading gate, pushing the ejector rod and then manually ejecting each individual spent casing.

For cleaning, dissassembly or to switch out cylinders-- open the loading gate, depress the release button and slide the base pin out forward until the cylinder falls free from the gun. Reassembly is accomplished in reverse order

While Ruger does not provide a written warranty, the company has always promptly, professionally and courteously repaired the extremely limited number of malfunctioning firearms we've sent them. In our humble opinion, they have a better warranty and service track record than many manufacturer's offering the so-called "limited lifetime" policy (which by the way, is not your lifetime, but what that particular manufacturer perceives to be the life of the gun). Overall, the Ruger Single Six is a superb, well made and exacting single action pinking revolver perfect for family fun on the range.
