    I read the thread about the new Ruger Wrangler and some wanted it and I admit I do not mind the looks of it I am not so much into looks as I am accuracy.

    I had a Rough Rider 22 and sold it after trying many different kinds of ammo in it.
    The gun was not accurate.
    If I wanted to shoot a rabbit in the head it would need to be closer than 25 feet or that Ruger would miss or maybe not miss. I had a few people shoot it and it was the same shotgun pattern.

    Did i get a dud?
    My Phoenix Arms 22 pistol is accurate enough to hit the rabbit in the head every time.

    Do not get me wrong the Phoenix is not tack driver accurate but it is 4x more accurate than the Rough Rider.

    My friend and i were shooting 22LR I had a stevens gill gun that was my grandfathers and he had his grandfathers 22 revolver with 12" barrel.
    100 yards shooting at cans.
    He just about never missed a shot with that 22 revolver. This was way back in 1986.
    I always wondered what make that gun was and that is one reason I got the Ruger. I thought it may shoot as well as that very old revolver my buddy was shooting.

    I have yet to see a .22 pistol that accurate.

    What is your most accurate .22 pistol.
    And what kind of groups can you shoot with it and is it picky on ammo?

    22/45 Mark III bull barrel. It had been great for me so far. It's probably more accurate than I am to be honest. It's threaded and just like the lite version but all solid steel barrel.

    I'm one that has been thinking about buying the new Ruger. I can't say I've ever measured groups out of it but my old Ruger MKII has killed numerous yard critters and snakes in the woods. I feel it is accurate. I'd like to have a single action 22 though. Honestly, I considered buying a heritage after a member here yesterday posted that Atwood's was selling em for $100 but I think I'll still wait til I fondle a new Ruger.

    Ruger MkIII 22/45 bull barrel.
    Runs great on Aguila super extra and Federal automatch, and Browning, and CCI etc etc...
    The only ammo I've had trouble with is Winchester super X.
    I won't do it the disservice of feeding it Remington Thunderbolts.

    Your friends long barrel may have been an H&R. They pop up from time to time. One sold on here about 6 months ago for 200 IIRC. I had a S&W k22 with the 8 3/8 inch barrel. Accurate as all get out but for some reason the crack was painful. Made my ears buzz even if I was plugged and muffed.

    My Ruger stainless Mark IV Hunter, 6.88” fluted barrel with a volquartsen muzzle brake, majestic arms 3 lb trigger, Bushnell trophy red/green dot and a majestic arms speed strip kit will shoot way better than its owner.

    I shot postal matches in college with one certain Smith and Wesson Model 41. There were twenty in the armory rack but I always asked for a certain serial numbered weapon. I had tried them all and only that one was the one for me. I won a lot of matches with that gun. Too bad I could't keep it. I do believe that there are certainly "duds".

    I have a S&W model 41, I don't remember what brand of ammo it shot best, but anymore I just shoot whatever's cheapest and it does pretty well. Everyone who shoots it loves it, and shoots it well.
