    Just recently shot a friend's. It performed as well as my Ubertis. The only critique was that the trigger needed smoothed up. It felt like it had too positive of a hook on it.

    He's going to buy a second one. He is planning on shooting CAS in the spring. What he paid is a little less than what my Uberti pistols cost me over 20 years ago. So based on today's prices, that's not too bad.

    We'll see if my stoning jig will work with it's sear and hammer after the holidays.

    If you do not own a heritage big bore or have direct experience with one maybe we can discuss your guns in another sub forum more suited for the guns you do own.

    Thanks to your starting this thread, I'm now seriously considering a Heritage 357 magnum, if I can find one. I've been meaning to buy a cowboy SA revolver for a long time now, and these are pretty darn good looking guns. And, that caliber keeps me standard with what I already have.

    Me too! The move was made as most people think of the Heritage Rough Rider as a 22 LR/22 WMR, evidenced by the input in the thread on other manufacturers for the .357 magnum caliber. There are many I suspect that do not follow the .22 SAA line that would be interested in the big bore SAA that this thread discusses.

    Maybe we should wrap the Heritage revolvers, the rest of the SAA handguns and all lever action guns into a "Cowboy Gun Fun" forum?

    I'm pretty sure my next one or two handgun purchases will be Heritage. Although the wife may need an SP101 after killing the bullseye w my new one.

    True, but I bet they would have loved having the extra round ready to go!

    I had an early 90s Uberti in 44 mag. About 20 rounds in, the hand snapped off. Their US customer service, at that time, spoke with a very feminine Italian accent. They wanted me to send the pistol in but I just had them send me the part and I replaced it myself. I guess they hadn't been sued enough to insist on doing the work themselves, under warranty. Since then, I've stuck with Ruger single actions, both 44 and 45. I've had, and have, black powder Pietta revolvers, and always thought they were well made.
