Heritage Manufacturing 22 single action

I received a Gander Mountain sale paper in the mail today and they have a Rough Rider 22 LR for $150.00. They say they are made in the U.S.A. but I don't know anything about them. Have you guys had any experience with this gun? and if so, what do you think of it?

Re: Heritage Manufacturing 22 single action

Love mine, I have .22 and .22wmr

It's not a tack driver but a fun gun to shoot, and with the .22wmr makes a nice woods walking pistol

The one on sale at GM only comes with the .22 LR cylinder unfortunately or I would have bought one myself.

Re: Heritage Manufacturing 22 single action

When I bought mine it only came with the lr cylinder. It came with a coupon to send in with $20 to get the mag cylinder.

I like my gun for what it is. It's not the greatest in regards to fit and finish but for what it costs...You have to expect that. I normally carried mine while scouting in the woods. Even with the 6" barrel you didn't even know it was hanging on your side. I also hunt with it as a primary tree rat gun (can't hit them) or as a secondary gun during small game season while hunting with a shotgun. I hate having to shoot something again with a shotgun just to put them down.

With the fixed sights I shot several different 22 lr rounds till I found one that shot both accurately and to point of aim. Mine likes regular winchesters in the grey box.

I only shot one type of mag ammo so I cann't say a whole lot on that. The ammo I tried shot low and to the right. I've been meaning to try some others but just never got around to it.

Re: Heritage Manufacturing 22 single action

Thanks for the input guys! I was looking into primarily as a trapping gun for dispatch, looks like it would fit the bill!

Re: Heritage Manufacturing 22 single action

i own two heritage rough rider 22lr/22mag revolvers. both are very nice. i use mine to trap every day and it does just fine never had a miss fire. i will say though cleaning them can be a little tricky when trying to pull the cylinder out they tend to stick but if you work at them for a little they are just fine. one of mine is a 4 1/2" barrel and the other is a ss with a 7" barrel if i were you i would go for the longer barrell it does cost more but the sights are easier to see being truglo and they are much more accurate hence the longer barrell, but either way they are both good revolvers and work great for trapping.

Re: Heritage Manufacturing 22 single action

i have one, i take it everywhere, i shoot it all the time. that being said, i love it. i bought it to use it, and i use it a lot. for the price, it can't be beat. a single six is almost 500 bucks now. this would be a great dispatch gun.

Re: Heritage Manufacturing 22 single action

I own one not what I would call a quality handgun mine came with both cylinders. I bought mine back when I was still running a trap line. Itís an excellent pistol for that purpose. If it gets nicked up no big deal, I loaded mine up with CB shorts. Great load for dispatching fur. Most times I only had one hole no exit wound. Less fur too sew.
