Editor’s Note:

The Heritage Rough Rider 16″ is inspired by the Colt long-barreled, long-range buntline revolvers of old. The Rough Rider is a single-action only revolver based on the old single-action army revolvers of the 19th century. It is available with either fixed sights or adjustable sights, and like all Rough Riders, users can easily swap a .22 Magnum cylinder in for added firepower and fun. The extremely long barrel gives shooters more accuracy, as well as a gun that is sure to turn heads at the range.

By The Numbers - Heritage Rough Rider 16"

You can’t expect much from something like this, but we were able to ring steel at 100 yards so that’s a lot better than we thought!
Hey, it’s a single action army. It works!
There isn't much to add here outside of different grip panels.
Most of the 3 pounds of the gun are all in the front, make it pretty awkward.

Can’t beat the price on this quality and durable wheel gun. Some things can be improved but overall, this is a solid plinking gun.

final verdict

“The Heritage Arms Rough Rider 16″.22LR Revolver falls squarely in the category of “fun gun.” It’s good value for the price but the long version is extra heavy in the front and loading/unloading 6 .22LR at a time gets tedious. But fun for the range and a bit of nostalgia it can’t be beat.”  – David Lane
