    Heritage Rough Rider 22

    Here is what happened when i shot 3 shots put holes in my target but the fourth cracked the barrell . I talked to Heritage a bunch of times an they told me i would have to pay for a new barrell , i thought even though it was not under warranty i could of got hurt . They told me thats my problem . This is an American Copany , all i read was good reviews thats why i bought the gun. I did pay for a new barrel i had no choice

    Nice looking revolver though. Seeing that, makes me glad I bought the Ruger Single Six. I hope that's nothing common with the Heritage guns.

    Re: Heritage Rough Rider 22

    I have two Rough RIders. I've not had the opportunity to shoot the 4".

    I've put several hundred .22LR and a couple of loads of .22 magnums through the 3" bird's head without any problems.

    Sure glad to hear no one was hurt.

    Re: Heritage Rough Rider 22

    See, I hate to read experiences like that, because I have recommended the Heritage Roughrider in posts I have made. Of course, I put hundreds of rounds through mine mine without a problem before i sold it, so i had never had to interact with the company.

    But it is good that you weren't hurt.

    Re: Heritage Rough Rider 22

    I had one of those, but I traded it to a Ruger Single Six. I'm glad now that I did. If it makes you feel any better, your story of their crappy customer service insures I will not buy another Heritage product. I was a sort of fan of their until I read your story.

    I have a Ruger Single Six 22 (both LR and Mag), a the old model Ruger Vaquero 45LC and a Uberti 1873 Cattleman model. All 3 have 5.5" barrels and shot great through the Vaquero can handle the +P stuff I shot nothing but Cowboy loads in the Uberti.

    Re: Heritage Rough Rider 22

    I see quite a few of the Heritage guns for sale in gun/pawn shops in my area, most are quite reliable dealers and they still stock them and i have heard of no problems personally about them.
    maybe its just a single gun issue??
    you would think customer service would be better.
    anyway i own a Ruger Single 6 and still think if one wants a fun little 22 reevolver thats the way to go.

    Glad your OK, and the warning about a Company that really does not care.

    I can't imagine any .22 doing that to a barrel. And the Company saying to bad.
