I just bought one of these Heritage Rough Rider Ranchers. I’ve seen them online before but always sold out before I got to them.

Air gun Trigger Shotgun Gun barrel Gun accessory

Glasses Hand Bottle Drinkware Wood


I think @Coalcracker posted about this gun a while back. Has anyone else bought one of these?

I’ve really wanted a revolving carbine since I started collecting western style guns. Hope it is worth it.

My concern with this type of rifle is gas cutting from the cylinder.

Yeah, holding them the way they are designed seems a bit cumbersome but for the price, I’ll give it a try. There are a couple holds I’ve seen. The one I think I like the most is using the support arm as a brace under the stock and grabbing the trigger arm behind the wrist. It looks more stable / comfortable than shooting it as designed.

Yeah I’ve heard about the gas from the cylinder and even metal particles shooting out. I saw one about a year ago and thought it was just the coolest. I do want one even with the possibility of it being painful to shoot.

i think its unique and a conversation piece......practical or field worthy is a different matter...

always been interested in such...more in a movie lore way than any need on my part......but it might get interesting if slightly out of time and that close to your face.......

So, I checked on my order to see if it finally shipped and it was, "On Hold". Sent them an email last night asking why it was, "On Hold". I got a reply back with a handgun melting point law. I called them up and told them that they quoted me a law doesn't apply to rifles. Should be shipping it out soon.

While it is really cool looking it has to be a hard pass for Ole Caveman, unless it’s gonna sit on the mantle.

It's a great movie. Add that one to your list when you have a moment!
