Gun Descriptions

As with most of the Old West style revolvers, the Plinkerton is heavy. However, since it’s only a .22 that makes for one heck of a… well… plinker. It tips the scales at 2 1/4 pounds, and all of the weight is in front of the handgrip. That makes it a tad nose heavy but not so much that your hand is shaking after three or four rounds. The grips on the Plinkerton are a handsome light walnut and they really make the gun look sharp. They also feel good in the hand, as most wooden revolver grips do. This model is also available with checkered plastic grips but in this author’s opinion, plastic grips have no place on a Western style revolver. I would spring for the walnut, myself. The matte black barrel is 4 3/4 inches long, which is a great length for a .22 revolver. It slides into a holster or stows reasonably well, but still retains the inherent accuracy of the round. I think the gun looks great and feels nice in the hand. The Plinkerton also has another cool feature: an additional .22 Magnum cylinder. If you have no experience with .22 Magnums, they are fun. If you have, then you know what I’m talking about. There are folks out there who claim a .22 Magnum is even a decent defensive round, although there are just as many who disagree. They are a heck of a lot more powerful than a regular .22 round, I can tell you that. I’ve always liked guns with the ability to shoot multiple calibers or types. The .357 wheel gun comes to mind since they can also send .38 Special rounds down the barrel. There are also conversion kits available that allow 1911-style .45s to shoot .22 bullets. The Plinkerton is cool because not many wheel guns have the ability to shoot both LR and Mags.

*This model does not meet requirements for melting point laws. Born of the traditions of the Old West, the Rough Rider maintains much of the look and feel of the legendary Single Action Army revolver, only in a scaled down version. Chambered for the .22LR the Rough Rider is manufactured using state-of-the-art precision machinery that assures its accuracy and reliability. The cylinder lock-up is tight and the perfect timing of the action makes for a handgun that will put its shots where you want 'em. The machined barrel is micro-threaded and inserted into the frame for the optimal barrel/cylinder gap to give you maximum ammunition performance. A hammer block mounted in the recoil shield provides extra protection and has a red dot indicator that lets you know when the gun is ready for action. A new, more authentic looking flat-sided hammer paired with new exotic cocobolo grips, makes the Rough Rider both functional and handsome. There are also other grip materials available, plus finish options include the attractive and durable Smooth Silver Satin. When it comes to the Rough Rider there are no shortcuts taken! Ideal for hunting, plinking or western action shooting, let the Rough Rider be your choice in a new rimfire revolver. Specifications: Rate of Twist: 1:14" Trigger Pull: 6lbs
