I bought this gun in 2000. I was looking for an inexpensive home defense and target gun and this one just looked cool with its short barrel and mother-of-pearl grips. I\'ve shot 3-4000 rounds of 22LR through this, including 100 rounds a month for the last two years. Also shot around 200 rounds of 22 Mag. Gun is still tight, easy to shoot and accurate. I carried it in my car for about five years before moving up to a larger gun. I\'ve got a 44 Bulldog and a Glock 19 and this is still the gun I keep loaded under the bed. So cheap, fun to shoot and reliable that I\'m buying another - 6.5 inch, satin with black mother-of-pearl - for better target shooting. - J. K.
Pretty decent firearm for the price. In fact, it\'s outstanding. Went and handled one and decided to buy. It\'s not the best finish in the world but the feel of the gun seemed to be quality. Went straight home and started shooting. WOW, I\'m impressed. .22 ammo is cheap so this buy was a good one if you like to plink and not spend a fortune on centerfire rounds. The gun is tight and I\'m pretty accurate with .22lr. Only thing is with the .22 mag I hit high and to the left. Can\'t figure it out, the sight is straight so who knows. I use .22lr the most anyway becuase it is so much cheaper. But, having a .22 mag cylinder is nice, it\'s pretty powerful stuff. Like I said, the finish is a little rough but looks good enough. I always give it a good cleaning and oil the entire thing after everytime I shoot it. I have at least 750 rounds through it and it still looks new. Cylinder is tight and the gun is smooth working. Never had one problem with it. I actually enjoy shooting this more than my Ruger MarkII becuase it is so much easier to clean afterward. You can\'t put as many rounds down range with the single action but it\'s a blast to shoot. Loading and unloading takes a little more time but you get faster at it. Love the look of the 6.5 inch barrel, great gun. It does exactly what I bought it to do and I didn\'t spend much on it. - J. S.
This seemed like a pretty good firearm, but I soon noticed when it wasn't firing rounds, that the hammer comes down slightly too much on the rim, to where it just wouldn't fire perfectly good rimfire rounds. But, it was taken care of by heritage mfg. and now works well, it is a good .22 single action revolver, almost comparable to a similar Ruger model, but not quite. Four stars - M. P.
Cheap gun, cheap looking, but a great bargin. Had it now for a little less than a year and no problems so far. Excellent for plinking or a beginner. Put about 300 rounds of 22LR through it and about 100 rounds of 22WMR. Easy to change cylinders and clean, has a safety which is nice. If your into spraying down the area, this is not for you. Get a semi-auto. Takes a while to load and unload, but that is what a single action is. Bought mine for $159 last January and satisfied with the purchase. It could have a better finish but you get what you pay for. Mine has the 6.5 inch barrel and is very accurate. Takes some getting used to the sights, just a groove in the rear. This is the only single action I own and it'll probably stay that way. Didn't spend too much and got to satisfy my curiousity. Probably be the handgun that I will use to teach my son to shoot with when he's old enough, simple to use and fun. - D. S.
