Heritage Rough Rider is pretty good deal too.
I snagged a pair of them at my local shop last year for $120 each, came with 22LR and 22Mag cylinders.
Basic, simple, accurate. Surprisingly good triggers and lock up for the price.

Big brownie, that's pretty interesting. The Cerakote would make a nice trapline gun finish. How many of us bring the gun in and clean it every day?? I know I am pretty rough with trapline gear and it gets dirty and wet and neglected...just because of the daily use.

That Wrangler is really growing on me...but I think I'll be holding off ordering one until I can inspect one in person.
There's a lot of chatter/debate about whether the grip frame is Aluminum or Zinc...
If it's indeed zinc, I'll probably pass.

I have a Ruger Single 6 and a Bearcat. Any 22 revolver will work. It's a work gun.

I have a stainless Ruger Single Six , .22/.22 WM, that I bought new 40 years ago. I wonít carry it trapping, too nice to take that beating. Iíve been toting an RG Rohm, that I also bought about the same time as the Ruger. I paid a little over $20 for it new. It is really in rough shape, and needs replaced. I was planning on picking up a Heritage, but saw info on the release of the new Ruger model. Word is that it can be had for around $150 at local shops. Iím definitely gonna take a look at them.

Like mentioned above go with a heritage arms for $120-$150. Also like mentioned above it's a work gun and no matter how hard you try not to, trapping guns take a lot of abuse. Honestly over the years I have gotten away from using a gun for most of my dispatches. There's other efficient and humane ways that eliminate a lot of extra work during fur handling process.
