Back in November, I picked up a Black Friday Heritage RR special from Cabelas. It is the 9-shot Heritage, and if you remember, I only had to plunk down $10 cash for this black gripped beauty. Well, I called Heritage the following Monday and ordered the .22 WMR 9-shot cylinder. I was told then there was a 3-week wait time, as the 9-shot was new to the market.

Here it is July, and still being told 2-3 weeks out. Other Heritage owners at the range I've spoken to have had no problems getting 6-shot cylinders, as they use them like speed loaders. I'm beginning to wonder if the 9-shot WMR cylinder will turn out to be vaporware.

You might be better off getting a 22LR 9 shot and having a gunsmith rechamber it for 22Mag/WMR

I am surprised you did not have to send gun in don`t the cylinders have to be timed? But like PeaceMakr40 suggested

At one time I thought so but I think with the manufacturing of close tolerance firearms did away with that. I have a pair of Ruger Blackhawks in .45 each have two cylinders, one for .45 Colt and another for .45ACP. I have mixed up the cylinders several times over the years and I cannot tell any difference in function or accuracy.

I had no idea Heritage was making a 9 shot .22. When did that happen? Maybe I'll trade off one of my 6 shot RR's and get one.

Nice.. I knew that Heritage had 9 shot .22LR, just like they have six shot in .45.
I was tired waiting for Heritage Arms to have the .22LR WMR cylinders in stock for my six shooter that I have, so I was able to find it "new" on ebay. It was a few dollars more, but not by much.. and it was "new".. so that's probably what is happening, people buying them and then selling them more for profit.
