Heritage Manufacturing, producers of the classic-style Rough Rider series of single-action revolvers, has declared 2022 the “Year of the Rimfire.” To kick off the celebration, the company is offering a $20 mail-in rebate on all small-bore Rough Rider handgun purchases.

With the number of new shooters looking for something a little different than their self-defense guns, and renewed interest in rimfires for plinking, small-game hunting and training, Heritage is presenting this special offer to help qualifying buyers get in on the fun. Now through March 31, buyers of small-bore Rough Rider single-action revolvers can submit an online form to receive a $20 rebate in the mail.

Heritage Rough Rider’s small-bore revolvers bring back the spirit of the Old West with their single-action styling, classical interchangeable grips, .22 LR- and .22 WMR-chamberings, multiple barrel lengths and a wide variety of sight and finish options. The firearms are suitable for everyday ranch and farm carry, a fun time on the range, collecting or completing a western-themed display.

Jay Bernkrant and Maria Diaz, his wife, established Heritage Manufacturing in 1992 and it didn’t take long for enthusiasts to discover the quality of the small-bore revolvers they produced. Nostalgic looks added to the attraction. Taurus acquired the company in 2012 and moved nearly all manufacturing in-house to the Miami, FL, facility that was then home to the company. The long-lasting tradition of performance that made the pistols one of the most popular on the market, however, remained the same.

In 2018 Taurus announced it was moving to Bainbridge, GA, roughly 40 miles north of Tallahassee, FL. With an investment of $22.5 million in the state-of-the art facility, the finishes, furniture and models made by Heritage continue to expand.
