Back in Sept I bought a Ruger Wrangler 22 LR just to play and plink with.  I took it to the range and shot several different brands of ammo with it.  The revolver shot any where from 4" to 7" to the right at 20 yds.  I called Ruger and they said that was acceptable!
I watched several videos of guys shooting their Wranglers and they all shot closer to POA than mine.  Ruger refused to do anthing about it so I did myself.
I took a 1/2" washer and cut it in half, closely matched the front sight's profile, painted it flat black then fitted it to the right side of the front sight with a wee bit of PC7 epoxy.
I'll be taking it out tomorrow and see where it hits. Will do finish work on it once its shot.

NOTE the above pic it looks like the metal on the sight is not even but it actually is. Also the remaining epoxy cleaned up nicely around the sight.  Anyway, I couldn't wait until tomorrow. I figured after 10 hours the epoxy was set good enough so I grabbed some ammo, the revolver and a target and ran to the nearby woods to see where it hit.  Shooting at 15 yards off hand I was happy.  I'm just a little ticked that I dropped the muzzle at the last shot!  I'd say problem solved. That square bull is 1" square. The bigger hole was caused by the bullet hitting a sticky and knocking it off the target. You can see the 22 hole just o n its edge.

I can’t wait to get out and shoot my Ruger Single Six.  I’m Curious to see what shoots better 22LR or the 22 MAG?  Time will tell.

I had a single six but sold it like a dummy. I'd bet the mag will shoot better.
