Love mine. Nice carry gun for taking care of groundhogs when you're doing chores.

Only thing I have to compare it to is my s&w 686. Flip out the cylinder, knock out all spent casings with one push, grab a few rounds out of the box, insert bullets, flip up cylinder, done, easy peezy.

Rough Rider you have to open the cylinder cover, expel a spent casing, insert round, then spin the cylinder one hole, push out next spent casing, insert round, repeat 8 times, close cover. Also, and maybe it's just mine being a little sloppy, but the cylinder can spin just a touch too far and you don't know it until you try to push out a spent casing and it gets snagged.

I'm also not a big fan of the fact that you have to have the RR half cocked in order to spin the cylinder. It's just too easy to forget to engage the safety before loading and you could easily screw up trying to uncock it and accidentally fire off a round.

Synopsis:
686 - flip out cylinder, expel spent rounds, load, flip up cylinder = EASY

RR - engage safety, open loading port, expel (maybe getting hung up) and load one round at a time, close loading port, disengage safety = PIA with possibility of accidental/negligent discharge

Its no Colt but as said above dirt cheap and good shooters. I you have an HQL buy a couple when they come up for sale.

Generally I prefer H&R 999's but that's a matter of operational preference.

Ah ! That's 99% the inherent nature of traditional SA Revolvers . ( The partial exception being New Model Rugers , which have no half or quarter cock position , and the cylinder will rotate upon opening the loading gate . Still .22 is smaller dia than big bores, and less margin of error for aligning the ejector rod .)

Personally I never bother with the awkard safeties on traditional ( half cock, etc) SA , instead having a uniform manual of arms the way God and Sam Colt intended . Load one, skip one, load 4 more , bring to full cock, and lower the hammer upon the empty chamber .

But hey , they make different styles of revolvers because people have different preferences. To me the loading/ unloading is a small trade off for the other advantages of SA revolvers , but if someone else has higher priority for the simultaneous ejection and simultaneous loading of a swing out cylinder, that's perfectly valid .

By all means if you are in the Charlotte Hall area on the weekends, stop by GLR Enterprises, and see my friend Gary Roberts and his lovely wife for friendly and helpful service . ( And if a Saturday also visit the music store and leatherworker at the Market.)

MDS favorite Gym Ratz is about 5min away , likewise with friendly helpful service.

Both are MSI supporters, and pro 2A .

They overlap on these Heritage revolvers , but in general only have maybe 10% overlap of merchandise .

Gym Ratz is well known for the MSR's , and the latest pistols , with modest amount of used and consignment . GLR has about half used at any moment , more emphasis on traditional goodness . Gary steadily gets in interesting vintage guns, and always new things for me to drool over. GLR also has full selection of ammo , and hunting, fishing, and camping gear.

If I go to one of these fine establishments, I try to visit both .
