I would like to get one soon for small game season and i was looking for opinions. I love rugers but dont wanna spend 500$. I have read good and bad stuff about the less expensive heritage guns. I need help deciding. Other suggestions would be great.

I would go with a Taurus. You can pick up a new .22 Taurus revolver for around $300. High quality at a low cost.

I know you said you didnt wana spend 500 bucks but if you did you could have both. I got this taurus tracker 992 a few weeks ago. It comes with a 22lr cylinder and 22 mag cylinder. They only take a few seconds to switch. I put a good 700 rounds of lr and a100 or so mag threw it last weekend. No probs yet. Its got a 6.5 in barrel and its a solid 3 pounds. Its by far the loudest 22 I ever seen too. I showed it to a few friends who were totaly shocked to hear it was a 22 . Ohh, the blued version is around 400 if yer not the stainless kinda guy.

More Range Reports
I am very interested in the 22lr/22Mag capability. Accuracy is suspect as the barrel must be formed for the,22 mags larger diameter. Loose tolerances may help accept other shells but does not help promote accuracy.

I used to own Ruger w two cylinders and it was a 22 Mag gun first,and foremost that incidentally happen to fire 22 LR. People often skip over the .224 diameter like what's a few thousands amongst friends - but when it comes to accuracy - it counts.

Herritage rough rider 22 combo w/ 6.5" barrel. Accurate, around $200 new, and made in usa.

What about used models? I picked up my GP100 in .38/.357 for $400 as a display model with a ghost of a ring on the cylinder; it has been a great plinker.

I have a 6.5" blued Heritage Rough Rider. Shooting .22Mag is a TON of fun and that little gun is more accurate than I am. I was always very skeptical until I picked one up ($130 w/ Magnum cyl only) I would buy another in a heartbeat. Just my experience but I definitely wouldn't overlook the Rough Riders. =)

Nice looking revolver there Josh1158!

I know Taurus's have seen some bad press occasionally,but I've always had very good luck with them.

How's the action on yours?Is the dbl action slick enough for informal speed work?
