Default Heritage Manufacturing revolvers

I need a 22 to shoot Montana rabbits. I feel like Elmer Fudd in the old Bugs Bunny cartoons, but these critters have gotten out of control around the house.

Does anybody have experience with Heritage revolvers? Looking at a local sporting goods store, for $40 more I can get one chambered for both 22LR and 22Mag should I ever need to shoot something larger.

I assume if I ordered on-line I might save a couple dollars, but I can pick one up today locally.

Do you have a bass pro or Cabelas around your area? Look at their black Friday prices

Catch one on sale and they're a good value. At the regular price of $180 spend the extra $30 for a Ruger Wrangler. No 22 mag but a lot better gun. That said, I've had 2 of the heritage and both were reliable. The 6" one shot well and even the "barkeep" snub nose was good enough for plinking. They're cheap, ugly, but go bang.

Thanks for the link.

No BP or Cabelas locally.

I’ll check Sportsmans Warehouse and Dicks for a sale.

I don’t see the sale price at Murdocks.

Our Murdochs has them for $69.99 after rebate starting on Nov. 25 for 2 days.
The sale flier says online and in stores.

It is their Black Friday Deals flier.

I bet your store will have them too. Thinking of picking one up ourselves for trapping pistol.

I don’t think that is for the 22/.22 MAG

Probably just the .22LR but still a good deal. Might see if the 22/22 mag is on sale when you go in.

If looking at them I would try to find one with both cylinders and the adjustable sights, I used to have one with adjustable sights and it was a nice feature

Save your money and your temper and get a Ruger Single Six. Wranglers and Heritage revolvers are cheap and they are made that way. My two cents.

I've carried one around in the truck for 3-4 years now and haven't had an issue. Pretty accurate little gun cant tell ya how many snakes I have shot with the sucker along with a few trapped coons, pigs, and yotes.

I have one and wouldn’t pay over $100 for one.

If spending $200, I would look for something different and throw a little money to it an updgrade.

Murdocks in ‘Bozo’ has the 22LR model with a $30 manufacturer’s rebate. So, $109 today, or spend over $40 in gas to save $40 Friday- and miss one of the last 3 days rifle season.

The sales guy gave it a going over, removing the cylinder, looking at the tolerances- he said several had come back before they started doing it.

Thanks for advise!

Now I’m wondering how much more ‘recoil’ if any it will have shooting 22 Mag?

There’s a $30 offer in the box for a 22 Mag cylinder.

Recoil will be less noticeable than the noise increase. And it aint even loud. I had that same one with the mag cylinder. It was fun

I agree on the recoil- I don’t feel any difference in mine! But as far as the noise level , the mag will danged sure ring the ears . I would say the mag report is at least three times as loud as the lesser .22

Not much more powder but it is pretty intense

I bought one when they were $99 at Academy a few years ago. It shoots fine, no more than I've shot it. It's got a super gay little safety on it though.

I have two of them. One is my Ranger beater pistol that I use to shoot hogs in pig traps but I have shot some rabbits at 50-60 yards.
Bass Pro has a really good Black Friday deal on them!

I ordered 3 this weekend! One for me with both cylinders, and 2 regular ones for Christmas gifts.
