Heritage Rough Rider Rancher Carbine

The new Rough Rider Rancher Carbine from Heritage Manufacturing ($297) is an outstanding-looking “revolver type” rifle chambered in .22 LR. With a 6-round cylinder and a 16.125” barrel. It features a walnut buttstock with straight checkered neck, adjustable Buckhorn rear sight, fixed blade front sight, front sling barrel band, rear sling swivel stud, sling swivels and adjustable natural leather sling. Since there is neither a buttstock pistol grip nor any forearm, a fixed (as in inoperable) “second trigger” is machined into the underside of the trigger guard just aft of the real one to provide extra grip purchase. The Rough Rider is a single-action-only rifle, meaning that the hammer must be manually cocked to fire. It has both a mechanical thumb safety and a hammer safety to permit carrying a live round under the hammer. All metal except the natural-finish hammer is finished in black oxide. Empty weight is 4.1 pounds., and overall length is 32 inches. Contact Heritage Manufacturing; Tel.: (229) 515-8099; Web: www.heritagemfg.com
