    If Colt tried this, I'd likely be first in line to buy all 3 versions! It's just refreshing to see an attempt at something. For that price, after handling one to check out the feel, I'll likely get at least one just because..maybe make it the boat/UTV gun.

    For Colt to not have a .22 in the line is beyond comprehension (I'm not talking about licensed products made by others). That's how you get lifetime customers...give them a .22 caliber introduction and give them reasons to move up to centerfire later...whether revolver or self-loading it doesn't matter. Not everyone is able to start out with a 9mm, .45, 10mm or .38 Special/.357 Magnum.

    Colt has their name on a 22LR semi auto that looks like a 1911. Their conservative stance hurts their ability to make a profit but to them it probably looks like revolvers are a dead item. Just guessing of course because I doubt anyone really knows the thinking of Colt..

    My idea to help things along is to get Colts management out shooting and away from the books. Once they see what other shooters like then they might start building again.

    Can buy almost 4 of these for the price of the new Cobra...yes the 22 market IS what is needed for youngsters and new shooters alike!! I use the contact the CEO at Ruger multiple times over the last few years, heck he even responded back a few times. It's called listening to your customers! Hello Colt!!

    I won’t comment on whether it’s good for Ruger or not. I just don’t have any facts. I think buyers will be happy if it’s a decent made gun and probably is. I would rather Colt make a full size, SAA in 22lr. I’d rather have one super high quality gun than a half a dozen decent made ones. Of course selling super high quality guns will probably put a manufacturer out of business quickly because everyone is about price. Oh I can get a half inch drive ratchet for $20 and this one is $175!?!?!!! Well that one for 175 will last you a lifetime and the 20 about a month (maybe) and a good chance of busted knuckles. Then again the $20 might last a lifetime simply cause most never use it. The people who know, know.
    Funny thing was when I called Freedom Arms and asked them if they offered a shoulder stock for their revolvers, I’m sure she thought I was crazy during her pause and simply said “No”... lol. I guess I’d like it to be more like the old days where it wasn’t If, it was just How Much?
    Ruger dominated the market with a well made 22 at a lower price point. I’m the kinda person if it’s not broke, don’t fix it. I’d be more likely to buy a Blackhawk or SuperBlackHawk chambered in 22. Of course I’m still waiting on Colt (or someone) to make a high quality, superblypolished and finished 1911 full size all Steel in 22 similar to the Ace. Don’t think it’s going to happen. Had hopes of USFA doing it but I think only a prototype or 2 was ever made. No chance of that now. I think I’m different than most tho.

    I look at these as like the GSG .22 Government Model pistols that were all the rage some years back. I bought one and quickly realized why they were cheap. Functional yes, but I'm sorry I bought one and they have about the resale value of a Fiat with 200K miles on it.
    You could get a Fiat to run 200K?

    Good for Ruger... Bill Ruger's 1st and still most successful handgun is a .22 caliber...


    Good for Heritage... Who seen a market niche for a low cost .22 and who also has a line of inexpensive center fire handguns for Joe Sixpack to step up into.


    My Heritage Rough Rider...$119 OTD when Gander Mountain decided to pull out of Warminster, PA.









    Hey Colt...what's the holdup !?

    I sure am happy with my Ruger Wrangler. While I like finely fitted and polished guns like my old Colt Double actions, this Ruger is a real usin' gun and for $200 is impossible to beat.

    I looked at a heritage. I couldn’t get over the ugly safety. This Ruger looks more promising.
