Heritage BirdHead 3.5” barrel, first groups



Log in to see fewer ads
Picked-up one today.

Seems pretty solid/tight. Cycles well, decent trigger, empties fall clear easy.

My 6.5” model favors the Fed Auto-Match ammo, so I shot a cylinder full from the new gun/16 yds, rested.

Group was about 3”. After I settled-in, got several groups under 2”. Shoots inexpensive Win bulk 333 ammo as good as anything else I tried.

Left the mag cylinder alone. Really not interested in shooting mags out of it.

A little file-work got the sights regulated, then lost daylight. All-in-all, pretty satisfied with it.

Pics show it next to the 6.5” RR, and that first group. Plan to shoot it some more tomorrow.

The proportions are just right

I couldn't resist, and mine has seen a lot of use. My hand likes the rounded butt and so long as I don't have to counterbalance a long barrel, it all works great. I haven't tried shooting magnums either, but likely will eventually.

I didn't expect it to be extremely accurate, but neither am I and I have more target-oriented handguns for those occasions. Accuracy is better than expected.

Yep , shoots to the left just like the one I had .
Nice pistols if you get one that has the front sight aligned right .
Not just a Heritage problem . My Ruger Wrangler does the same thing . So did my Uberti until I fixed it .
