I don't think that is it.

I googled the subject and found that most people think .006" is ideal, at least for centerfire revolvers.

The other thing was as mentioned above: the ejector rod doesn't align correctly, and is hard to use. II didn't see an easy way to adjust the alignment of the ejector rod, unfortunately. It needs to move about 3/32" to align correctly.

So, I put in a call to Heritage tech support. The lady I spoke to was very pleasant, and issued a repair authorization, and took $50 for shipping.

She also said 12 weeks for the repair. I don't shoot all that often, but seriously? Three months? Seems excessive.

I'll keep y'all posted.
Help me understand this correctly. The gun was defective when purchased new and they charged you $50 to correct their error? It should never have left the factory with the ejector rod 3/32" out of alignment...that's huge. Should have been repaired cost free in my opinion.

Back to the forum, I tried to sign in the other night and it said my PW or UN was incorrect. I know my UN because I have previous posts.

I did the reset PW email and cut and paste the PW from the email into the website login and it said it was still incorrect > DONE.

New interest

Got a new RR to pick up tuesday. Never owned or shot a SA revolver but the Wrangler got me interested. I`ve been all over my area looking at and handling all the SA`s I could find. Handled some single sixes that really made me want them but I figured it would be wiser to try a much less expensive SA just to be sure. The Wrangler looks like it will be in short supply for some time and I may just decide to spend the extra for the Single Six because of the adjustable sights.

Got the same one, even with the 4.75 in barrel. First time out it worked perfect, no issues, shot to POA.. second time out I fired around 30 rounds and when ejecting the rounds, the first one came out but it seemed a little tight. I ejected one round and then the cylinder froze as well as the trigger. Locked up tight, doesn't matter safety on or off nothing moves. I had liked the gun.. called Heritage CS and told them how unhappy I was at the second outing ends up with a frozen gun. I know Taurus had a reputation at being not sympathetic toward the customer but this CS rep was very cordial and offered me free shipping label to send it in. I know the gun is guaranteed for a year but I wondered if it included free shipping as well.. Long story short, I got the label and plan to ship it out tomorrow. So mixed emotions here....

.

I hope you get better service than I have. I sent in a all steel model I ordered on line, and it had a cylinder gap of over 20 thousandths, so it flung debris when fired.

Like you said, I got a call tag, and sent it in. They have had my revolver since February fourth of this year. I called to see when I can get it back, they said it
Is set for replacement, but they are out of inventory. They offered me a non steel replacement, but I want steel. The zamak model they offered is also 49 dollars
Cheaper than the steel model I bought. I donít know when I will get a replacement.

Hopefully your revolver wont be gone that long.

I had to send in one of my RR's. It had multiple issues... assembled in the dark I guess.

Took 6 weeks. I was OK with that since there were no wild rabbit attacks forecast in my area. Free round-trip.

Once my gun got back from rehab it was GREAT. Better lockup, cylinder gap and front sight.

This is the one I'm considering. Steel frame instead of alloy.
2 cylinders: .22LR & .22WMR
Model #RR22MBS6, $180
Too bad Heritage is Taurus. Not a good track record for customer service.

That model is not steel, it is simply satin black finished. Steel models start with the letter S. The steel model is scarce, only a few a year are made. SRR22MBS6 is the steel model. I sent one in for warranty work, they said it could not be repaired, and I am waiting now since February for the replacement. Heritage customer “service” is hit or miss. Never again........I have a steel model that I bought refurbished
From Kentucky guns, it would only fire every now and then. I sent it in to Heritage, and I got it back in three weeks. It is a really good shooting revolver now. It is accurate. Strange, but I got the new steel model they have to replace for 24 bucks less than the refurbished one.

The free return label is not offered if the time is much over 30 days.

I see they have gone back to the blue box. All of mine came in the brown box.

history of the Rough Rider

Team RFC, looking for info on the history of the Rough Rider. I know it was based on (or a copy of?) the West German made H. Schmidt revolver from the 1960's.

There were at least a couple importers that began making the frames and assembling guns with H.S. parts after the GCA of '68

Did the folks who started Heritage Mfg buy one of these import companies and take over manufacturing of the copy of the H.S. revolver or start from scratch using the H.S. revolver as the basis of design??

Does anyone know?

quick cure for "lock-up"

Its a pain in the butt, but just pull the cylinder pin and remove the cylinder, then you can get the hammer, trigger and "hand" back in sync. Put it back together and it should be fine...Ö.until the next time it locks up. Rinse and repeat.

As you are doing this, think about all the $$$$$ you saved on your Rough Rider and the fact that you can fix it yourself and don't have to send it to the Florida Everglades for repairs.

You're welcome.

I have 2 RRs and have done this "exercise" 100 times. Its a cheaply made revolver, with some issues, deal with it and move on.
