Stupid fun firearm. Love the shooting variety that this novelty handgun provides. I thought the long sight radius (and fiber optic sights model) would make this an easy X killer. Rats... I still have to focus on what I am doing.

Last pic shows the after-market target grips I put on it. Like'em too.

mine is not a heritage - it is an H&R and it is a lot older than this but i get the interest and i too enjoy mine when i take it to the range - just a tad shorter than that one ,

RR22MBS6

Heritage specs say that the frame is 4140 steel, but the part number indicates you are correct.

If they can't get their own website correct, doesn't say much for the company itself.
Probably better off with a Ruger Wrangler.

I ended up with two 16", put grips off ebay on one:
Both came with .22lr and .22wmr cylinders.

"..ended up with two 16"...

What a sad story.
Happens every time to me too when I put two items in the shopping cart.

How long before somebody starts selling a shoulder stock for it?

i think my RR is very accurate, save the gutter sights.

I wouldn't be surprised if those long barrel guns gave exceptional accuracy.

Just bought a rough rider for my daughter.

Just ordered a 4.75" .22lr/.22wmr for my daughter. She wanted something to carry out back when walking the dog. The coyotes have become very brave lately and she's hell bent on getting some close range lung shots. I have 6 different .22 wmr ammo loads but can anyone tell me what load they prefer in this gun? Hunting or target. Thanks.

Wow !! I love them. Gotta get one. It will look good next to my 9.5" Ruger single six.

I finally broke down and bought one of the bird's head models last week. I really wanted a single six with that grip but it appears Ruger is never going to offer them again so I settled for the RR. I don't understand why they offer the tiny Bearcat with a bird's head grip and not the single six.

I shot the LR cylinder some Saturday and the gun performed just fine. If you have any rabid coke cans or feral rocks it does a fine job of putting them down. It does have a very nice trigger but it's also very easy to tell why it is priced so much cheaper than the single six. That said, I'm happy with it.

I saw them on sale at Davidson's and HAD to buy one. They had the 6.5" "Johnny Boy" faux case-hardened color finish frame w/laminated grips 22LR/22WMR combo for $150.

Mine is pleasingly accurate and the trigger is pretty darn nice. My specimen really likes CCI Standard Velocity 22LR and Winchester Super-X 40gr. HP 22WMR. My only complaint is that when I got home from the first range outing after firing about 200 rounds total of 22LR and 22WMR, I had some lead fouling in the barrel.

When I started cleaning, I noticed I have a little rough spot in the bore about 3/4" in from the muzzle. There is also a loose spot about half-way where I can feel a brief but distinct jump when I run a tight-fitting jag and patch down the bore.

I worked on the bore for a while with some Mother's Mag and Aluminum Polish and I'm looking forward to the next range outing. I picked up a fancy floral-tooled thumb-break holster from an Etsy seller in NM for the Johnny Boy. Yee haw!
