These things are unsafe junk.

They have the quality of a Jennings or Davis.

The Ruger is much better. It will last you a lifetime and your kids will not be able to wear it out long after you are dead and gone.

You get what you pay for.

If you buy quality the first time you can't go wrong.

If you pay $175 for a POS and a month later find out it is junk you will be lucky to get half what you paid for it when you get rid of it.

Since most everyone that knows guns would not have a junk gun it does not have resale value. Who would want to buy it?

The internal parts are cheap rough junk metal and if you keep it very long something WILL break. The triggers are terrible.

Anyone even someone that knows nothing about guns can compare one of these to a Ruger and clearly see the difference in quality.

The silly hammer block is just a dangerous gimmick that can get you hurt someday.

Good used Rugers can be bought for around $250. They are good safe guns and when you wish to trade it off someday you can without losing half of your investment.

Buy quality now and forget about junk.

Lighten up.
Not everyone can afford to go buy the best guns nor does everyone desire to have the best guns.
If you can afford to pay $175 for a POS then you can surely pay $225 to $250 for a quality gun that will last a lifetime.

Why would anyone not desire a quality gun over a piece of junk?

Now how is that gonna get you hurt?
It can get you hurt if you forget to use it.

Leave this BS safety off and drop it on the hammer and you will understand. If you live through the discharge.

This it not a problem with the Ruger.

How about you try giving advice without bashing someone's possible choices for purchases.
There were two choices here.

The origional poster needed advice on buying either the Heritage or the Ruger.

One is quality the other is cheap dangerous junk.

There is no way this can be said any other way.

Why not just be truthfull.

The origional poster can take my truthfull advice or not. That is his decision to make.

If he did not wish to hear the truth or if you are somehow offended by it I am sorry.

I always like to hear the truth if I ask a question. I am sorry if you feel otherwise.

Cornbread;
Have you owned one of these revolvers?
You seem to have a strong opinion about them.
No I would not buy one. I know better.

I have worked on enough of them to know all about their quality.

Re: One thing I do not like about the Ruger....

mdoerner said:
...is when I work the extractor, the cylinder has to be held out of position (i.e. rotated so it does not rest with a chamber not lined up with the barrel) manually. The Heritage does not have this problem.

By all means buy the Heritage if you lack the manaul dexterity to perform such a highly difficult task as removing the spent rounds from the Ruger.

It could take as much as 5 seconds to perform this task.

That really would be a problem if you were being overrun by ground squirrels or other deadly rodents.

Perhaps you should write Ruger and let them know about this serious design flaw before it becomes the downfall of the company.

After all Ruger has been with us a long time and I would hate to see the company go bankrupt.

It may already be too late. Thousands of Ruger owners after reading your post may trade theirs in for the Heritage because of this never before noticed serious problem.

Hundreds of thousands of used Ruger pistols will flood the market and be sold for pennies on the dollar. Ruger will no longer be able to sell another new single action pistol.

Perhaps for the sake of a good American company we should delete this thread before the public becomes aware of this problem.

I have posted why the BS safety is dangerous. Perhaps you should read it. If you lack the ability to perform such a simple task as removing the empty brass from a single action pistol you also lack the intelligence to use this safety.

If you don't use it the gun is not drop safe. If you lack the ability to unload your pistol you also lack the ability to keep it from falling out of your $5 bargin holster and having it shoot you in your left buttock.

Or it could be someone else you shoot because of your ignorance and your poor choice of a firearm.

I'll one-up you here. NO GUN ON THE FACE OF THE PLANET EARTH IS DROP SAFE.

I have several that are. That is a very important part of good modern gun designs.

Those of us that know and understand gun design would not carry one that was not drop safe. You however can do as you wish.

Since when does lack of ability reflect lack of intelligence? I suppose all the physically handicapped people out there are just being stupid, right?

If you can't remove ALL the empty brass from a Ruger in less than 10 seconds you are physically handicapped or an idiot.

If you are handicapped then it could be difficult.

If you are an idiot you have no business with a firearm of any kind.

If you compare a Heritage and a Ruger pistol side by side and come to the conclusion that the Heritage is better in any way you are not handicapped but just an idiot.

Since when has bad taste ever killed anyone?

.
Bad taste in firearms has killed several people.

Idiots that do not understand gun design have accidents with junk guns all the time and KILL innocent people.

The accidents could have been avoided by a different "taste" in guns.

Such as one that is drop safe.
