    They are junk. We sold plenty of them and had plenty come back for all kinds of repairs. Save your money IMO.

    I have one - for the fact that for several months I couldn't find a darn .22 pistol anywhere, so that's what I wound up with. Kills raccoons fine.
    Will probably sell the Rough Rider when I find something better. Just don't like it that well, though it's worked fine for me.

    I spent two days shooting a buddies Rough Rider along side of my Ruger Single Six and Ruger BearCat. Many bricks of ammo. The Rough Rider ain't no Ruger.
    Things I liked about the Rough Rider. Great trigger. Very accurate.
    Things I disliked about the Rough Rider. Manual hammer block. Fit and finish.
    The manual hammer block alone has kept me from getting a Rough Rider.

    I HAD one. Very, very nice in presentation and feel actually. However, MY accuracy with it was horid. It was like the sights were bent or something. I used CCI Mini-Mag (stk. #0030) ammo and had a dificult time holding a 10" group at 30'. I sold it to a guy for $100.00 and he swears by it. Go figure....

    You get what you pay for. if you want a junk traping gun or a glove compartment gun for a farm truck its not bad.

    I have one of the Heritage Big Bores, in .357, the best way to describe it is, well, rough.

    It doesn't have the fit and finish even on par with my Uberti Cattleman. I don't really like the hammer mechanism either.

    That being said, it hits what I am aiming at, and I haven't had any problems with it. I've shot the .22 version, its pretty much on par with my version.

    There are better options out there.

    I sometimes wonder if people are serious on these threads. "Hows the Heritage/Raven/HiPoint, etc compare to other guns?"...when you spend $150 on a gun, what do you expect?

    I have one. My buddy had one and hated it. Got i for $50! I still feel a little guilty about it. It is a fine weapon for plinking, as you intend. They are reasonably accurate. I think they're worth the money paid. If you want one to pass on to the generations, get something else. My 2 bits.

    I have one. It is a fun little weapon and I have had no problems with it. Thinking about getting a second one.

    I am normally a fan of automatics. Learned on them and like the convenience and performance.
    Having said that, i felt I should at least try a revolver (wheel gun). Saw the RR. Looks nice. A 'cowboy' look. Feels great to hold and .22 is an easy caliber.
    Got the gun no problems. Fires whatever .22 I can get. Never had a problem with it. Fires easily with either hand.

    I have both ruger single six and a heritage RR. Ive shot them head to head more than once. They both shoot equally well. they both have nice single action triggers. And they both are long lasting! The RR was new in 1978, The Ruger in 1964. Both have been well shot and both have been refinished. At a full 10 oz less when a long walk is going to happen the Heritage gets the nod.

    I have one. Probably my least favorite firearm. Cheap plinker. Almost no real resale value which is probably the reason why I haven't sold it yet.

    Then again it is fairly accurate even out to 50 feet. And after 700 rounds not a single issue. But it looks cheap. Not real pretty. And it's not a terribly good training tool for my SD guns. I rarely shoot it anymore.

    I have the birds head model, not a bad plinker. great for coons and skunks. I can't say anything bad about it.
    If you want a bad opinion, lets talk about Lorcin .380L. then you have something to talk bad about.
    And I bught that POS the day Clinton signed the brady bill into law.
