The instructions above warn us not to comment on other products, but I bought 3 guns at one time, I have adult sons and thought this would be a great hobby we could share. This Rough Rider was by far the least expensive purchase. In comparison, it is the one that became everyone's favorite! I was nurtured on John Wayne Movies and felt obliged to purchase a western fire arm. My son opened the box and his jaw dropped... "Just like Cowboys and Indians Dad!"
The ATI 1911 looked great and the.40 Kahr compact I bought was smooth and slicker than snail-snot but we all fought over who was next with the Rough Rider!
It's fixed sights were perfectly set. making it a dead-on tack driver. It felt soooo cool to hold and we even enjoyed the single action trigger. The trigger was crisp, expected and even fun to watch in action with the one inch flame exiting the barrel for every shot.
The stock is beautiful but the black metal finish showed wear after only 50 shots, but I wouldn't trade it for the world, and I haven't even tried the magnum loads!
I haven't handled a side arm since being in the service. I think this was one of the best paternal idea's I've ever had! My youngest (at 30) never fired a weapon in his life yet managed a 2" circle at 7 yards... more than once!
Can't pass up this story:
When we showed up at a brand new gun store and range, we were filling out forms when we heard a shot! My youngest is in a wheel chair and the 100 psi tire tube burst and sounded just like a rim-fire cartridge. There had to be close to a hundred customers buying guns on opening week at the Target Shooting Academy and more than half the shoppers reached for their CCW! I know there are many Americans that would have felt uncomfortable at that moment, but I've got to tell you
that never in my whole life, have I felt safer than, at that moment in time!
Thank you Buds... I'll be buying again soon I think.
