Heritage Rough Rider .22

Recommended Posts

Anyone have any experience with the Heritage Rough ride .22 revolver. The price is so low it almost scares me off.

I've handled a lot of them at our shop but have never fired one.

The fit and finish is what you'd expect for the low price but by all accounts they appear to be decent shooters. A coworker has bought a couple of these for his grandchildren and he believes they are a bargain

I can say that the finish is delicate and can show extreme wear after a few years .

Hey Smurf, I have one in .22mag, fun shooter! I bought it used, came with a bunch of ammo & a holster for $150. The frame is aluminum, all else appears to be steel. Mine has a safety, (never seen one on a revolver before), and it stops the hammer from touching the firing pin. It does not lock the trigger or cylinder. MG said it well, the finish appears to be a bit fragile. It is very accurate, and for me it is a keeper.  I want to get the .22lr cylinder for it, and try some Colibri ammo.

The Colibri ammo in it sounds like a good idea. I currently keep my Savage Mk2 loaded with them in case of coyotes. Pistol might be a better player at that task.

Yes, Colibri is powderless ammo. Has a 20gn bullet, in a bolt action rifle it is near-silent. (It will not cycle any semi-auto, and I would not try it in a semi-auto) But otherwise it is a blast. Much quieter than an air rifle. Louder in a pistol.

Colibri have a muzzle velocity of 420 plain and 590 super. Haven't tried the supers yet, but if you every have need to shoot a small varmint in an urban setting know one would know you had out of a bolt action rifle.
