I bought one with a 6.5 inch barrel (I think) and for the money it is a good gun. The sights are fixed which I don't care for, but they lined up well. The 22 Mag cylinder shot a hair better than the LR but both were adaquite. I have shot Ruger Single-Six's also and they are a major improvement over the Heritage but for about twice the price. Get one, you'll like it.
