Ruger hit Vegas last week with a slew of new barrel and grip options for its Wrangler series of single-action rimfire revolvers along with the planned return of the .30-30 Marlin.

Introduced in 2019, the Wrangler series of single-action rimfire revolvers come in at half the price of the company's comparable offerings-- for instance, the Single Six-- while still having tons of features.

Ruger has now trimmed down the revolver into a Sheriff Model just in time for SHOT Show, featuring a shorter 3.75-inch barrel on the same square butt frame. In addition, it has also grown the standard Wrangler model with new models that offer 6.5 and 7.5-inch formats. All three new lengths span across three Cerakote colorways: black, silver, and burnt bronze finish. 

The MSRP on the new long-barreled Wranglers is $269, regardless of color or length.

 

The Marlin .30-30 is back!

 

While Ruger's new Marlin line has concentrated on bringing back the classic Model 1895 Big Loops in .45-70 last year, this year will see the vaunted old Model 336 make a comeback. The fast-handling icon of whitetail deer hunters everywhere, this lever-action rifle is chambered in .30-30 Win. and .35 Remington and will be available sometime later in 2023. 

Sorry, no prices on it yet, but as old JM-marked guns have tripled in value just over the past few years, it couldn't be too far off the mark.
