    So was looking out on the Wide world of the Webs and came across this 16" Rough Rider 22 lr revolver..

    I know it is impractical, I know its a toy..

    But darn it I have a soft spot in my head and heart for buntline style hand guns. Any one have some experience on one of these.. Considering who makes it I can not think there is to many quality issues.

    I also like the cheap price.

    Not for these old eyes. I'd have to scope it just to see the front sight. ;)

    Probably would make someone a decent squirrel gun.

    And you could put a stock on it without getting into SBR legalisms.

    I'm sure it will operate just like all their other Heritage SA .22's. Not too many have issues with their function.

    Depends on your eyes. My 54 year old eyes see rifle front sights better than handgun front sights. So, a 16" barreled handgun front sight is going to be in rifle sight distance.
