I got to handle this at my dealer last night. There's a few things that tell you it's the economy line. There's visible casting lines on the grip frame, plastic grips and a few Torx screws. They also went with a fixed groove instead of an adjustable rear sight.

On the plus side, it feels well made. The cylinder was snug. Hammer worked smoothly. Trigger was about the right weight and felt crisp, with little or no creep. I wasn't expecting a good trigger, but there it is. The loading gate was a little tight. Maybe oil would help, or some break-in time. Not a big deal to me.

Overall it seems decent for the price. My dealer said it was obviously better made than a Heritage. (I've never handled one so I'm taking his word for it.) Now to get it on the roster.

Anyone know if this has been submitted yet? The 23rd is coming quickly. Is there a way to see what guns have been submitted?

I don't know if it has already been submitted, but my local FFL/IP Masada Tactical will be submitting it to the board for me. Yossi doesn't think they will want to fondle an actual firearm, as it is a: revolver, .22, Ruger- nothing says "scary" about this new firearm.
Hopefully he gets the paperwork in for this month's review.

I've submitted the paperwork as well. I haven't heard back yet, so no idea if they'll want to test a sample or not.

Thanks all! It is going to take a lot of wrangling (sorry for the pun) to get my wife to allow me to buy another handgun ANY time soon. However I think I really can convince her on this one. A knock around varmint/pest control handgun would be really nice with my new property and I’ve got zero 22 handguns. So a dirt cheap shooting handgun and something better to train her and the kids on would be huge.

But she’s is pissed I own two handguns (okay, 7. But she knows of 2 and parts for more). Plus I’ve gotta sell my old house, but fingers crossed that’s soon.
