Heritage Manufacturing introduced its new Rough Rider TC, or “Tactical Cowboy” revolver.
As the name implies, the Rough Rider TC blends traditional Old West single-action revolver styling with contemporary enhancements that bring the platform into the 21st century.
Based on the company’s popular 6.5-inch-barreled .22 LR six-shooter, the Rough Rider TC offers enhanced sighting options and muzzle configurations, allowing shooters to enjoy the classic feel and handling of a single-action revolver while benefitting from modern shooting accessories like fiber-optic sights, red-dot optics 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 reflex-style optic. Also included is an elevated front sight with a fiber-optic element for open sight shooting and optimal visibility in all light conditions. Rear-sight alignment comes courtesy of the notched Picatinny rail, allowing the Rough Rider TC to be used with irons or optics.
To complement the high-tech spin of this mélange of old and new, the Rough Rider TC comes with stylish carbon-fiber-simulated grips. These can be customized with any of the many classic-style grip panels available through the Heritage online store. Finally, the muzzle is threaded ½x28 for use with a suppressor or other muzzle device, and comes from the factory with a thread protector in place.
