Heritage Rough Rider

Does anyone on the forum own or have experience with a Heritage Rough Rider .22? I know they are inexpensive but does that necessarily equate with bad quality? They do look pretty nice but looks can be deceiving.

I just bought one two weeks ago and have shot a few rounds through it. For what I paid it is not bad...it is not a Ruger 6, but I only paid 1/3 what a Ruger costs. I got it just to use as a fun gun and plinking. Shooting at 15 yards I hit a small cast iron skillet hanging on a garden shephard hook with 2.5 inch groups.

Decent enough shooter and good value,some problems are timing issues.

I see where "Cheaper Than Dirt" has one listed at $164. That's about as inexpensive as I have found for a new gun.

I had a 3 1/2 barrel with the birds head grip and it was a good reliable shooter.
The one thing that was different was that it actually had a safety on it.
Mine shot both the .22lr and .22mag equally accurate.

I know they are very very different niches, but I would rather have one than a Hi-Point fwiw...
The ultimate cheapo arsenal would be Heritage .22, Hi-point 9, .40 and .45 lol.
It's more understandable to get a cheap .22 though, bc with Hi-Points the gun is going to cost less than a case of ammo.... I guess a lot of people treat these like disposable cell phones--probably the same demographic too! Sorry for getting off topics I am just fascinated by Hi-Points lol

Better than not having a 22lr,go for it.Higher rated companies have sold lesser guns

They're not a bad range gun & plenty of fun...except I don't like the plastic safety. Buds has them for $157 shipped right now too. Tempting to grab one.

I bought one some time back and have been nothing but happy with it. The finish on mine did not stand up great, but honestly I bought it to be a gun that I could scratch and bang around and not care. I think it is a great gun for the money and would buy it again without hesitation.

My thinking is kind of along these same lines.

I know this is an old post, but I have had the 4'' .22 rough rider for going on 10 years and it is absolutely one of the best SA .22's I have ever shot. I have put hundreds of thousands of rounds through my gun and the only time it broke was when I fanned the cylinder a few too many times. Both times this happened I sent the gun back and received a free replacement hammer no questions asked. It also locks up nice and is balanced in your hand.

Last time I explained to them what I did to cause it to break, and they put a stainless steel hammer on it, I still fan it out and this hammer seems to be holding up great.

As for accuracy, it is second do none.

I'm sure the Ruger is a "Nicer" gun but if you're looking in the $150 - $190 price range new, you won't regret this gun.

I love my single sixes and Blackhawks. I looked at one of those and got a queezy feeling when I saw the safety. It was just a little too "Brokeback Mountain" for me.
