My point was that we pay entirely too much for incremental increases in quality.
In terms of the quality differences between the Ruger Single Six and the Heritage Rough Rider, imo, said differences are a long way from being "incremental". That said, though I think both revolvers are worth their price for what you get, I think the better quality manifested in the Ruger (finish, workmanship, material, etc.) more than justifies the extra money it takes to buy one. And, not that it necessarily makes any difference to an individual buyer, twenty or so years from now I'd wager that the Ruger will be worth more than what you pay for it today and the Heritage will be worth less.
