Heritage Manufacturing, Inc., producer of the classic-style Rough Rider series single-action revolvers, is excited to announce the latest iteration in its growing lineup of innovative handguns—the Rough Rider TC, or “Tactical Cowboy.”

As the name implies, the Rough Rider TC ingeniously blends traditional Old West single-action revolver styling with a nod to contemporary performance.

Based on the popular 6.5-inch barrel .22 LR six-shooter, the Rough Rider TC offers enhanced sighting options and muzzle configurations, allowing shooters to enjoy the classic feel and balanced handling of an SA revolver while benefitting from modern shooting accessories like fiber-optic open sights, red dot sight, and custom muzzle devices.

The Rough Rider TC features a Picatinny rail atop the frame, providing a solid mounting solution for the addition of a red dot-style optic. Also included is an elevated front sight with a fiber optic element for open sight shooting and optimal visibility in all lighting conditions. Rear sight alignment comes courtesy of the notched Picatinny rail, allowing the Rough Rider TC to be used with either open or red dot sights.

To compliment the high-tech spin of this Old West favorite, the Rough Rider TC comes with stylish carbon fiber simulated grips. These, of course, can be customized with any of the many classic-style grip panels available through the Heritage online store. Finally, the muzzle is threaded ½ inch – 28 RH for use with a suppressor or muzzle device and includes a thread protector.

    As p.t.barnum’s unremembered neighborhood competitor lamented, “everbody gotta have a gimmick”. And we can add, “if you build it, they will come”. People will buy this for their own reasons; the best i can see, it’s about the cheapest suppressable piece out there. Great for “rat patrol”. And yes, the media ignorantly/intentionally persist in misleading us on the capability of “silencer/suppressor”, (as well as anything else they love/hate), and yet other people will opine uselessly against things they find un-needed. Buy it er dont, but yer ignernt grumbles tells us a lot about ya. Its a tool, and people buy tools to use, or for showing-off. If you like/need it, buy one/buy two/buy six! Aint America Great!

    It cracks me up to continually read about how you can not *silence* a revolver as though truly *silencing* a gun is the only virtue of a SUPPRESSOR.

    Regardless of the overstated notion of the amount of emitted sound from the cylinder/barrel gap – suppressinng a revolver still has its advantages, most especially with subsonic rounds.

    As far as the notion of a suppressor costing easily twice as much as the HRR – I see it more as an issue for someone who already owns a suppressor being able to screw it onto this to dispatch rats and such.

    All in all (RIDICULOUS safety aside) it seems a neat little outfit being optics ready and threaded.

    Dumbest thing I’ve seen lately. Basically a junk gun anyway.

  • Michael wong January 21, 2022, 2:04 pm

    Just for your information you cannot silence a revolver as there are gas leaking from the gap.

    LOL. How silly.

    To bad the state of Illinois has made owning pretty much anything Heritage illegal. All because they’re worried about someone melting these guns down because of the low melting point of the metal they’re made from Don’t they realize someone can do that, or use other methods to destroy a firearm if they want anyways? It’ll just take longer is all. But then criminals don’t really destroy guns anyways. They either sell them to some other criminal or they toss them in a lake or river.

    But yea, it sucks Illinois has a law making these illegal to own because they’re cheap fun little plinkers. :/

    I would expect as much from the same people that put a safety on a single action revolver

  • Bojud January 21, 2022, 8:03 am

    Do both the 22lr and the 22 mag cylinders come with it?

  • Dr. David d'Albany January 21, 2022, 7:41 am

    I need a gun with a suppressor (a silencer). Does this Rough Rider come with a silencer?

  • Rich K. January 21, 2022, 4:53 am

    That is so ridiculous. A suppressor would be a useless on that gun as tits on a boar hog, since it is not a gas-seal revolver (like the Russian 1895 Nagant revolver is) and noise would easily escape through the barrel-cylinder gap. Companies are getting WAY out of hand jumping on the tacticool mall ninja bandwagon.

      i don’t think many people who buy a 149 dollar revolver will go through the time and expense to put a 300-600 dollar suppressor on a 149 dollar gun,the red dot isn’t a bad addition if your dollars are tight .
