I think you were thinking of a membership fee at Sportsman's Warehouse. Cdnn does not have any membership fees that I know of. I have purchased often from them and I'm not a member of anything there.

Is there a worthwhile difference in the two barrel lengths (6' or 4.75) in plink accuracy, to look for a bargain for one over the other? Not a revolver guy, but at loading and shooting and reloading one at a time, with .22 prices a person could spend all day at the range for under $5!!

Never mind...I just bought the US Flag 4.75 version. Figured I would get one before they were gone, and the shorter one would be better on the wrists of this old man at the range. Gun Firearm Trigger Revolver Ammunition

The longer the sight range (back to front sights) the easier it is to be accurate. Same principal as from a handgun to a rifle. (Yes, powder burn and longer rifeling make a difference but sight alignment is a bigger accuracy factor.)

Time spent on reloading a revolver turned out to less of deal than I thought it would be. I quickly got the knack and found it a smaller than expected difference than dealing with mags (often multiple mags.)

2-cents.

That is a very nice looking revolver! Congratulations!

Way good looking! Like the 4"!
Post video when you've got the draw, twirls, swings and re-holster down! (Skip the part about the cans.)

I just noticed something....the one I ordered says BLACK finish and there is one that says BLUED. I looked online at the two definitions and the definition is pretty vague. Seems like the black is still a blued finish in a way and not like a black that comes out of a spray can. Any one have both or know the real difference?

Also...is it really worth getting the mag cylinder? I am not going to use it for critter hunting, so the little extra ummph using the mags at almost 9mm cost just a waste?

In order for it to truly be blued, the frame, it has to be a steel version. Price will give a clue. :D The zamac ones are powder coated with black paint. It doesn't hold up that well.

Oh, and no, Mark, you probably wouldn't mess with the mag cylinder. I have the mag cylinder and it shoots a little closer to point of aim, but that's an individual gun thing. I do like it for dispatching trapped ***** a little more humanely. But, I shoot LR in it when plinking.

I would have skipped the mag cylinder if I had a choice with the model I wanted. Never intend to use it. Paper, cans and steel don't care. Very true about the cost of 22mag ammo vs the utility of 9mm.

Thanks, Later I might get the mag cylinder just for going to my step sons house. He is on 5 acres and we have seen a few rattlesnakes. A .22 mag with shot would be better than just a lr full of shot.

Gun Firearm Revolver Trigger Airsoft gun Received the Heritage today. Slightly different grips than the display ad showed, but I like them. Got a coupon for free shipping on the mag cylinder if I want it. Only $30 but spent my allowance for the month says the wife:D

She said ...You :loco:..... 1. This is not "Payday Loans"! 2. "You just bought another gun couple months ago" (Springfield XDe). Then she said something about wanting a new set of cookware...which is no doubt going to be Pioneer Woman and expensive and we might talk further about this. :rolleyes:

I have the 4.75" in LR and a mag cylinder. I like the shorter barrel only because I think it looks more like a six shooter. And because it fits in my holster nicely.

I would have one for the same reasons if I could hit with 4" and grove&blade sights. Would have to depend on noise to protect me.. but I would starve anyway.
