incognito253: @CXxWilsonxX55 Problem is, a .22 barrel is .22 or so inches in diameter,
and a .17 bullet is narrower than said barrel. It'd be like throwing a hot
dog down a hallway - it'll bounce around and nothing good is gonna come of
awosomedog1000: $150 were did u get it?
DrewZ2ube: @elitesack I dont know why that has to be the case. There are
revolvers/firearms that were made back in the 1800s(and further back) that
still perform today. You mention "heavy use". Personally,I think its heavy
ABUSE, or poor overall care for the pistol that,for the most part,will have
the deteriorating effect you are speaking of.
mickeylehuynh: I just bought a new 9 shot rough rider for my wife. I find the hammer is
quite stiff compared to my other single action revolvers. My wife struggles
just to pull the hammer back. Do you find this to be true with yours and it
does it loosen up after breaking in? I hear different things from owners.
corey wilson: i plan on buying this firearm and i would like to know if u can shoot 17HMR
out of the 22MAG silinder?
SharkWhisperer1988: I've heard the basic model .22s are made of pot metal or something and wear
down beyond usability after 1500 rounds or so, any word if Heritage's steel
models are more durable? I would asume so...
mikefm4: very cool review. im looking to purchase my first firearm and this revolver
had caught my eye a few days ago while looking. simple, easy operation and
cleaning and needless to say looks really nice. i love the revolver look
and functionality. im glad you recommend it. the price is amazingly
Jacob Hartless: where did u buy this cuz i have seen this gun on other websites for 230 and
us said u got it for 150
goatrunner21: hey i have a ? what do u think is better a heritage or a ruger single six i
just want one to plink around and carry and i want it to be able to fire
thousands and thousands of rounds
teddyd30: Do you know where they are made? I've looked at one for $230 and I'm
thinking that's a little too much. Agreed? Thanks!
MrBooger546: planning on buying one version of this weapon soon. probably the 6.5"
barreled version with adjustable sights. seems like a descent firearm for
the money. with the .22 mag. cylinder included it's like 2 guns for 1 money.
SightsonTargetKris: @ jaypowell- You could load all six chambers. This is a target revolver
though. Leaving one chamber empty originated to prevent revolvers from
discharging while carrying. This really is not a firearm you would want to
carry. @ elitesack180 is not a bad price at all. @ hoatrunner- the ruger
single six hands down. Neither though is meant to carry for self defense,
but they are great for hunting, target practice, and plinking.
randalljames1: Yep... but dont be surprised if you get failure to fire.. I have put
hundreds of 22LR out of this gun with the 22Mag cyl. The only issue has
been one bore on the cyl that has occasional FTF issue. All that said,
firing any round out of a gun or cylinder in this case that is not designed
for it is a big no no..... Run 22LR out of the LR cylinder and 22Mags out
of the 22Mag cylinder..
V6stangman2007: I was confused why he said unlike rugers and other single actions u have to
pull the trigger back I think u mean like all other single except rugers u
have to pull the trigger back
SightsonTargetKris: @CXxWilsonxX55 - no.....you should only shoot what the firearm is rated
for. 22MAG is rated for 22MAG. Heritage Arms does make a 17HMR revolver,
but it is not interchangeable with the 22 revolver.
moiecol: I just bought mine this saturday and started shooting. but i notice I have
to hold it 3/4 right of the target to hit center. is there anything I can
do to fix it,
pythonparker: ie seen them for 199
FMAStudent: You can just hop on the Heritage website and order whatever parts you need
for this gun. They have a low price point for all entry level parts and
accessories. I put 300 rounds thru this gun in one visit and all is well.
Still a bit short of the 1000 rd story you heard but will get there and
post my findings. I definitely think having an all steel gun gives you the
ability to pass the weapon down to future generations. This one serves the
general uses of an entry level wheel gun.
bluejay148: hi do you have to do paperwork when you purchase it
Hayden Jordan: they have one at academy for $149, i plan on coppin dat mug :p
jaypowell0185: Just wondering if it's okay to load all six chambers because there is a
timewaster6991: got for $125
splitcheck: Just fyi... I just picked one up from Academy Sports for $129.
ThePatrick6122: The Lighting is pretty crapping, it really doesn't show the revolver in
Blizzhobbs: @SightsonTargetKris academy will always sell these for no more than 179
Crawloutboy: @CXxWilsonxX55 just stop
vinosd773: i heard the heritage arms rough rider has a little defect, when you put
about 1000 rounds through it the little thing that spins the cylinder
starts to ware out. my first quiestion is, is that true? and my second
quiestion is if it is true, would it be fairly simple and easy to find a
new one of those parts online? and my final quiestion is would it be simple
to put the part in yourself? or would it cost alot to have a gunsmith do it
for you. please reply ill be waiting on your response
akdude182: @CXxWilsonxX55 technecly since the .17hmr is just a necked down version of
the .22mag you could fire it.it would not de accurate or effective but in a
pinch you could fire it.
SightsonTargetKris: @teddyd30 - That is a bit pricey, but in your local area firearms may be
Zachary Foreman: @teddyd30 they are made in Florida, as far as the price, if the gun you
were looking at was a .22, then yes, $230 is way too much money. if it was
a .32, maybe. i picked mine up for $129.99 at academy a few days ago .22lr
with a 6.5in barrel. could not pass that deal up for a good US made target
Jesse Bradfield: Have you ever shot the 22 longs out of the 22mag cylinder?
Jermanaut: hi i was just wondering about the quality of the gun in aspect of wear and
durability. I've heard that these guns show a considerable amount of wear
after a while of target shooting and aren't really made to last a lifetime.
In your opinion is this actually true. I'm looking for a good target pistol
and am kind of wondering if this is one of them "you get what u pay for
Kevin K: do you know if this can use grips meant for other brands? I love the feel
of diamond texture grips but they dont make any for this gun, but seeing
how its based off other model im wondering if it work?
RanstinProductions: guns at cost.com have them for $170 price is going up ! I have a 22 in
silver satin and LOVE it !
iliveforRATM: @teddyd30 found one at fins fur feathers or watever the order.... any ways
on sale for 150.00
