Heritage Rough Rider 22LR/22WM Pistol

I've had one of these since last summer but have never fired 22WM out of it.

Opinions?

I saw a short vid of someone shooting a HP Critical defense bullet out of a Ruger LCR and the bullet looked pretty wicked after they took it out of the gel.

I was under the impression that shooting 22WM required a different cylinder. Could be wrong though.

A different cylinder comes with it. It's easy to switch out.

Oh sorry, the one my dad has only came with the one for 22LR. My mistake!

I just got one but have yet to fire the 22WMR out of it. Pretty cool pistol and accuracy is not bad for a inexpensive gun. I have the version with adjustable front sight.

I have it with both cylinders. 22 mag is a different experience to include a pretty big fireball and an empty feeling in your pocket for $13/box rimfire ammo.

Are you inquiring about .22WMR from a full size revolver, or about Heritage revolvers ?

I really like .22WMR from full size bbls ( 4.75-6.5in). It lets the ctg reach its potential, ie 40ge @ 1300-1400fps. You don't need the trick bullets with these. At these velocity levels, old school 40gr jhp give optimal performance. W-W in particular, but in recent years I take whatever I find, and reserve the stash of W-W for actual hunting.

Got one last summer and have used the magnum cylinder once and ran a small box through it. It was fun and quite loud. But I'm not willing to pay more than twice the cost of 22lr for plinking purposes very often. Although as I write this, I see prices have come down a bit. Months ago it was 30 cents + per round and now I'm seeing it closer to 20 cents.

Pick up a Heritage Rough Rider 22LR/22WMR Pistol couple years back from an IP under $200 just because the wife want to shoot a revolver but wasn’t a fan of my 45.

Shot both the 22lr and the 22WMR rounds she liked the 22LR as the 22WMR had just a bit more kick and report.

The extra cost of the 22WMR is not worth that little extra power unless you just feel you got to have it.

The 22WMR cylinder has had 50 rounds through it where the 22Lr had 500-600 still shoots fine.

It does get to be a little hard to eject spend rounds after 50 round due to the powder residue 22Lm is a dirty round to shoot but fun.

I have one and while I like the gun, it shoots way off point of aim (like 4 inches at 10 yards), so I tend not to take it out much unless I feel like playing Kentucky windage. Needs a taller front sight, but on a $200 gun, why even mess with it.
