Heritage Mfg Rough Rider Tactical Cowboy Revolver F

Heritage Mfg.'s expansive lineup of affordable rimfire revolvers has been a source of plinking fun for years, but these classically styled single-action revolvers featured only open sights, like those on the iconic Colt Single Action Army. Now, in 2022, Heritage is offering a versatile, tactically styled option in its revolver lineup in the form of the Rough Rider Tactical Cowboy.

While much of the Tactical Cowboy retains classic styling features and construction found in the original Rough Rider lineup, gone is the plain topstrap with a sighting groove. Instead, users will find a Picatinny rail mounted atop the revolver, providing room for the addition of a micro red-dot sight. Despite the new sighting system, you can still make use of open sights on the gun, thanks to a trough machined through the middle of the Picatinny optics rail that aligns with the fiber-optic front sight on the 6.5" barrel.

An additional feature found on the Heritage Rough Rider Tactical Cowboy is the threaded muzzle, which is machined at 1/2-28 TPI to accommodate suppressors and compensators. As configured from the factory, the Tactical Cowboy is chambered for .22 Long Rifle, having a six-round cylinder, but the platform is compatible with Heritage's optional .22 WMR cylinder. In keeping with the tactical theme, the gun is treated with a matte black-oxide finish and has simulated carbon-fiber grip panels.

Suggested retail pricing on the Heritage Mfg. Rough Rider Tactical Cowboy is $212.88. For more information, visit
