Had to do it,just for the heck of it.
Special order,they have no clue when it will come in.Plain jane blued and coco grips,but both cylinders 213.65$ total.

Sometimes,just because.

Told my other RR's they have a big brother on the way.

I've had several Heritage Rough Riders over the years (sold and traded some, passed some to my kids), and still have one convertible. Always been a good, steady performer.
I'm eyeballing a Ruger Wrangler now, so the RR might end up taking a back seat to that guy.

That's rather neat wonder if you can add a brace

I just saw one of these today on Buds website. Only in 22lr, for $160. Looks like it would be fun to shoot, or at least to look at on the range table. I bet you will get some looks taking that thing out at the pistol range. Lol Do let us know how it shoots when you get it.

Did the same thing because it was on sale for $100. and I've heard some good things about it. Have yet to fire it though.

I would think, since the barrel is rifle length, that you could add a stock and make it a rifle.

Definate fun factor.
I'm not used to single actions,and of course its a little muzzel heavy.
I was just trying to get used to the function and finding a grip to keep it steady,went thru 100 rounds of regular LR,just getting used to it.
I'm going to need a lot more time with it before trying for accuracy,but was hitting the paper plate.
Tried some cb shorts,whisper quiet,but don't know how it sounds to someone standing off to the side.
Has fixed sights,not sure why,I guess to keep the price down.
One thing for sure,shooting single action and having to eject each case manually sure slows you down.

Most Rough Riders are more accurate with .22 Mag. YMMV
I had one of the 7" with the adjustable sights.
If you don't do a lot of revolver shooting remember that you must keep you hand/arm away from the front of the cylinder or you will get burned.

16in RR would be a pretty cool woods guns. Let us know how the accuracy is. I found my 6in RR to shoot significantly left & low... but admittedly I haven't spent enough time shooting it to honestly blame the gun and not the trigger puller

Looks fun but can you twirl it?

I know most folks think of the Heritage as bottom of the barrel but my old early 90s version is the most accurate gun I shoot. Found it at the pawn, blueing removed, coated in clear nail polish with slight rust starting. Ugly as sin!

$65 and a fresh coat of spray paint later (and with a little site drifting) it shoots like a laser beam. The only gun I own with a name - the Junk Yard Dog.

Found out the early ones like mine will not accept a magnum cylinder either.

Talked to the owner of the LGS I see the most. They usually have prices on Heritage that are close to the net and the best selection in the area.

I asked if she had gotten in a 16" yet and she laughed, stating that she wouldn't put one in her case but she could order it. Then I told her of my idea about making it into a rifle. If she gets one in I suspect I will attempting to build one. I understand they have one with fiber optic adjustable sights. If not, I will wait and see if the do.

I found one with fiber optic sights for $179 shipped. I have ordered the .22WMR cylinder for $30 shipped. Meanwhile, I used the Magnum cylinder from the Bird's Head version and it worked great.

I am grouping a nickle at 10 yards with WMR ammo. The .22 was just a bit wider.

I have an old Ruger 10/22 wooden stock that I think will work for my carbine experiment. I am considering picking a Bird's Head grip frame (also $30) so it will fit the grip profile of the stock.
