Has anyone heard of Heritage Manufacturing rough rider or heritage arms rough rider if so are they good guns?

I have the rough rider and I love it. I have about 2000 rounds through mine and been a good shooter. I would recommend it.

sweet I think Im going to buy one.

The Rough Rider is not so well fitted nor finished as a Ruger or Uberti, and close examination reveals features most don't like in a single action. But, the fact of the matter is that, while not target quality, they are simple, rugged, reliable and have field grade accuracy.

For popping cans or empty cartridge boxes, they'll do the job.

I have one and I really like it.
Cheep to shoot and everyone wants to shoot it.

They're decent for the cost. Also they've improved much over the years.
They aren't high quality, but they're a lot of fun.

Absolutely! I've always heard that the best place to stay with handguns is revolvers & best caliber to start with is 22. This suits both! Great starter gun I say.

The single action revolver is a great starter gun. The gun cannot be fired by a novice by simply pulling the trigger, he must manually cock the gun first. And with the big hammer spur a coach can readily see at a glance that the gun is cocked or not. And there is no temptation to spray out a stream of bullets.
