Rough Rider ... the very image conjured up is of the rugged men led by Theodore Roosevelt charging up Kettle Hill and San Juan Hill over 100 years ago during our war with Spain. That same image of ruggedness might also be applied to the newest Big Bore Rough Rider Revolvers from Heritage. Almost the "spitting image" of the Single Action Army was carried by some troops during the Spanish-American War.
This latest six-shooter comes chambered for the legendary .45 Colt cartridge but is also available in .357 Magnum. This fine handgun can be had in the traditional 4.75", 5.5" or 7.5" barrel lengths, just like the original. Blue, nickel and case hardened steel finishes are available. Each gun is fitted with an attractive one-piece cocobolo grip. The action features a frame mounted inertia firing pin and transfer bar for added protection.

They are a family run operation, just like Heritage Manufacturing. Then those certain parts are finished by Heritage, then plated then fully assembled by us in the good old USA.
Perfect for the exciting sport of Western Action Shooting, our Big Bore Rough Rider embodies the flavor of the Old West but will also serve anyone who wants an accurate and reliable sidearm for other outdoor activities. As with all of the Heritage handgun line, this new six-gun offers both quality and affordability ... an American Tradition!
