    Same here... The little Wrangler is an EXCELLANT gun! And now they have the "super" model for magnum?!?!

    Have a pair of Wranglers.

    I only have one, but I did buy some upgraded grips for it...

    I like my Single Six (older three-screw
    model) better, but the Wranger is not bad at all.

    I had a Single Six - was stolen in a break in. :( My father
    in law, before he passed, gave me a Heritage with a magnum
    cylinder and I got IMOP grips for it to 'mimic' my old
    Single Six. I'm happy with it. :-)

    Certainly better
    than the Heritage Rough Riders I've managed to accumulate - which are STILL fun little guns to shoot. It's not really a fair comparison, the Single Six is just a top of the line .22 revolver, there's nothing in
    my mind to compare it to.

    Agreed! I bought a barkeep, though, and THAT is a fun little gun! :-) I
    got the one with the simulated case hardened look and wood grips, and I
    bought one of their etched cylinders for it and got a Desantis holster
    for it. :-)

    I bought another Heritage with black finish and black pearl grips - on
    sale at Smokey Mountain Guns - got it home and the sites were off - BAD.

    Sent it back and they replaced it, and the replacement is BETTER but still
    not 'right.' I'm going to, one day, strip the finish on it and twist the
    barral to fix it.

    The Heritage and the Wranger are within the
    same realm. Heritage does fun things like custom grips, oddball barrel lengths and the like, and the Wrangler is more like a "we'll keep to basics and do the basics well, thank you" kind of item. Either way, at
    the price range they're in, I have a feeling I'll collect a few more of these .22 plinksters just for fun....

    Yep! Right there with you! I also caught another little .22 on sale at
    Rural King and picked it up. I can't remember the brand now - Cimmiron
    maybe? What's 'different' about it is the barral is the same size as
    a .45 but the 'hole' is for a .22.

    Guess what I'm saying is that it is BIG and HEAVY...





    ... I DID IT! I invented the unadoptable tagline! Try it. Won't work.

    Not much impressed with the barkeep. Anything you have to carry a separate tool around just to eject the cases doesn't work for me. I suppose you could use the cylinder pin - if it will fit in the cylinder holes... I know the NAA revolvers are designed to use the cylinder pin to punch out empty shells.

    Doesn't surprise me. Sights on the Heritage revolvers aren't that good to begin with, I can certainly understand if they're off as well. They certainly weren't designed to be target pistols, that's for sure. Still, if they are "minute of tin can" accurate that would be good enough for me.

    We DID pick up a new Heritage Arms .22 revolver at the last gun show. This is a Billy the Kid commerative. Rough Rider 4" barrel with Billy the Kid's image inscribed on the grips. Blued cylinder, barrel, hammer and trigger, the frame itself has a case hardened appearance. Looks nice, hopefully it will shoot nice as well.

    I have some Cimmaron .45 revolvers, very nice pieces. Don't have one in .22 but from what I've seen of their .45's you probably got yourself a nice little .22 there....

    I don't mind it, and the holster I bought has a place to hold the
    ejector thingy. :-)

    LOL - very true - and that's good enough for me too. Or 'minute of torso'
    for 20 yard plinking on metal targets. :-)
