This is mine--
S2010182.jpg


$149 at Academy-- and worth it... Mainly I have fired LRs through it, but I have put a box of Mags through just to try it (loud)--

Good value and fun as heck-- not a Ruger Single Six, but still great value for what I paid.

I recommend you get one!!!

It's not a tack driver by any stretch of the imagination, but still a fun day at the range. Well worth the price.

I had one and it was good for the money.Loosened up after about 2000 rounds and then I broke the trigger.Great gun to shoot after you run out of the expensive ammo.I caused the trigger to break by fanning the gun so it was my fault.I probably would still have it if I had not broken it.I got one for my dad not too long ago and he loves it.

I use mine as my "lawnmower" gun while cutting grass. It's great for dispatching snakes and such.

I keep the first 2 loaded with shot shells and the rest jhp.

I have handeled them at the gun shop, they looked and felt cheap to me, I would just buy aRuger single six and be done with it, The single six will be with you long after the rough rider is in the junk pile.

great thanks for the comments.. i have been trying to look for anice used revolver but i can not find anything in my budget. so im prob going to get this one. the Ruger is nice but $500 is just too much for a .22 right now. I would rather get more ammo etc..

Thanks for posting this question. I have an older LNIB Super Single-Six Convertable that I'm getting ready to sell and your question led me to a Ruger SN/date of mfg site:

Ruger Revolver Serial Number History

...as well as gave me a better feel for an asking price. I'll post it soon in the classifieds.

I actually did a lot of research and most reviews were mixed. Mainly "okay for the money". The week after I decided to get one I bought a Single Six at the gun show for $290. It was clean enough that I thought it was new. To me I know I can sell it for what I paid, maybe not the Heritage.

I almost bought one (as a Christmas present to myself) on a whim from Academy, but they were sold out of all except the display model. I went home and checked online and the reviews were sufficiently mixed regarding quality control that I never went back to buy one.

If you decide to get one, post your range report. Heck, I might change my mind again.
