Default .17HMR Revolver?

I just spotted on Impact Guns website that they have a Heritage Mfg Rough Rider revolver chambered in .17HMR...

HER RR17B9AS 17HMR 9IN BL AS

There's no mention of it on Heritage's website so has anyone else heard of it before? seen one? own one?

I love the idea of a revolver to shoot the same rounds as my rifle and with it's 9" barrel it should be capable of some nice grouping at 25-50yrds right?

I know Heritage is more of a budget brand but the only other revolver, or hand gun of any kind that I know of, chambered in the .17hmr is the Ruger New Model Single Six...

Am I missing any others? Opinions or input much appreciated.

I have a 9" bbl in .22lr and .22mag. For plinking around, the accuracy is okay, not great. I would think you would want a better firearm for the .17. But, that is only my opinion.
