Default .17HMR Revolver?

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


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.
