Heritage Rough Rider

Picked this up in a trade today. Basically brand new in the box. Zero turn line. It's definitely not a Single Six but can't beat it for the money. Gave it a close look when I got home and every single screw on it was loose. The grips are hollow plastic "Ivory" and fit terrible. I have a few pieces of walnut to remedy that. In the box there was a coupon for a 22 MAG cylinder for $29.95... Hopefully shipping won't be too bad. Can't wait to put a few rounds down range with it

Nice lookin plinker. I have a 6" model with both LR & Mag, came with it. Great basic gun, nice shooter.
Zero issues with mine other than I do not like a safety on a Heritage SA.

Yes the safety is kind of redundant. The manual says not to carry on an empty chamber.

Put almost 300 rounds down range past two days without issue. Shot everything from Stingers to CB Longs and even some shot shells. Shoots high and left but I''ll experiment a little more before I start messing with the sights. It's kind of like putting lipstick on a pig but I did have to carve up some walnut to replace the hollow plastic grips.

Looks really nice with the walnut grips. Those guns really are nice for what you pay for them.

My son just got one for his first firearm.
Looks like a fun gun for learning and plinking.

I have had a E15 for over 30 years, it is still going strong. I had to replace the pawl 5 years ago, but since then it still shoots like a champ.

I have one in my safe and we bought my Dad one for Christmas two years ago. Both are the lamanate grip with fiber optic sights.

They shoot every bit as good as my Single Sixes.

They are great value for the price. Id recommend them to anyone.

Those walnut grips really did the trick.

Very nice.

I've looked at them. Cheaply made, no resale value. I invested in a Single Six years ago.

I think we can all agree it's not a Single Six.

This is a fun gun to shoot but like it has been said not high quality like a Ruger. I ordered the magnum cylinder and it took three months before I received it. The magnum cylinder fit very tightly and did not work properly as I couldn't pull the trigger back.I called Heritage and they said they would send me a new one free of charge. It took another three months to get that one and still had the same problem but with a little bit of fileing I got it to work ok although I can now feel only three clicks instead of the four with the original 22 cylinder. I've shot over a hundred magnum rounds with no problem except that shell extraction is tight on one of the cylinders and I have to use a small knife to pry off the tip of the spent casing to get it out. I'll call them again to see if they will send me a new cylinder some day and probably have to wait three months to get that one. You get what you pay for.

Thanks for the report. Looks like a nice plinker, I've been looking at them myself. As you said, it's not a Single Six, but it's not $400, either.

Good shooting!
