Manufacturer’s Description

Black satin finish with green camo grips.

Heritage Mfg.‘s Rough Rider Small Bore is an old West-style single-action revolver that maintains much of the look and feel of the venerable Colt Single Action Army revolver. It’s built on an alloy frame (steel frame versions are available) and chambered in .22 LR, .22 WMR, .32 H&R Magnum, .32 SW Long and .32 SW. Six- or nine-shot .22 LR/.22 WMR models are available. A variety of barrel lengths are available, including 3.5″, 4.75″, 6.5″ and 9″.

Heritage says the machined barrel is micro-threaded and inserted into the frame for the optimal barrel/cylinder gap to give you maximum ammunition performance. A hammer block in the recoil shield provides extra protection and has a red dot indicator that lets you know when the gun is ready for action.

An authentic-looking flat-sided hammer paired with cocobolo grips are standard, but there are a variety of other grip materials available, including white mother of pearl, black mother of pearl and green camo laminate. A bird head grip is also available.

Fixed sights are standard, but a red fiber optic front sight and adjustable, green-dot rear sight are available. Finish options include silver satin, matte black, low gloss black satin and case hardened.

Silver satin finish with green camo grips.

    Have a Heritage Rough Rider 45. Gun jams after every shot. Heritage no help. Worst handgun I have ever owned. Will never purchase another Heritage product.

    Bought a Heritage .22 Mag / LR and I love it. Amazingly accurate, no problems at all. I love how it shoots, it’s just a pretty gun. Especially the MoP Grips. Plan on buying another one soon. Most likely a big bore .45.

    I’ve had my .22/.22WMR for years. It has always preformed perfectly. Very sturdy, well built and accurate. I want to buy a big bore .357 with a 7.5 inch barrel…some day…some day.

    I have the .22/.22mag. Goes with me when I hunt. never failed. Super value. Great as long as you don’t shoot thousands of rounds through it. Not what its for. Would really like to have the .32 as well. Every American should have one.

    I have a Heritage Rough Rider in .22lr/.22mag that I love. Struggled with it for decades shooting .22lr in it. Just could not get a nice tight group.

    One day just for kicks I took it to the range with the .22mag cylinder.
    That gun came alive that day. She put ever round right where I told it to. 6 shots inside a 1.5 inch circle offhand at 20 feet. She is my favorite range gun by far and the most requested gun by friends to bring along.

    20 years have put a few dings and marks on it, but it still looks good, shoots good. And you can’t beat the price.

    No it is not a Ruger or a Smith. But you could buy 3 or 4 of them for what either of those company’s revolvers would cost you.

    I also would dearly love one in .32. But they are scarce.
