Heritage RR357B5 Rough Rider 6RD 357MAG 5.5" Blued
by James R Date Added: Friday 03 August, 2012
The picture on this page does not do justice to how good this weapon looks, let alone feels. The wood grips are beautiful! The balance is perfect, the trigger pull light enough, and the cylinder tight. Not a true Colt replica, but I knew that in advance. Still, it is VERY close in look, feel, and action, with the exception of the hammer cock: three clicks instead of the traditional four. The reason is that it has the transfer bar as a safety measure. That said, I'm so used to leaving a chamber empty that I shot it that way and, as the manufacturer notes, that is always the safest way to carry a single action..I took it home, removed the cylinder (spring-loaded retainer, not 1873 screw style) and cleaned off the packing grease, which was very light, actually. I took it to the range, where It ate fifty rounds of 158 grain led .38 Special with no problems at all. Virtually no recoil with the 5 1/2 inch barrel. I think my wife would like to shoot it! The sights are in line, best as I could tell without going to a bench rest. The revolver definitely seemed more accurate than the shooter at 15 yds! So at this point, I am perfectly satisfied that I got what I paid for. Bud's was great, as was my FFL. I also picked up a belt and holster from Heritage. Very please cowboy, here!
