Inexpensive (cheap) 22 revolver

I'm looking for a cheapo 22 revolver to use just for fun at the range.
There are HERITAGE ARMS for sale used (supposed like new) for $150 nearby....before I even look...???
GENITRON doesn't list them, anyone know if they are "good", i'm not expecting S&W quality....

They go bang. You get what you pay for. Not bad for plinking. I'm not a fan of the safety but it's a cheap fun range toy that's for sure.

Inexpensive (cheap) 22 revolver

I have seen some heritage revolvers they are very decent, others that are POS.

For example, my cousin bought one they was tight and shot to exact POA with most any standard velocity 22lr.

A friend bought one that the 22 mag cylinder kept misfiring. He had me look at it and it had so much end play that when the hammer hit the cylinder went forward and it had light strikes.

I helped him cut a spacer shim out of a cheap feeler gauge to shim the cylinder back. No more misfires but it had a hell of a barrel/cylinder gap and was inaccurate as could be.

I wouldn't buy a used Heritage at that price. That's almost as much as a new one. Academy has run sales knocking them down to 150 in the past.

I have no experience with the heritage rough rider guns, but they seems pretty well liked by almost everyone I know who has one and general gunshop talk. IIRC I paid around $200 for a used like newish Taurus 94 snubby, very happy with it with approx a 1K thru it.
Either way, check the guns out thoroughly for mechanicals before buying.

1000k through it!? You put $30,000 worth of ammo through a $200 gun?

To the OP maybe you could find a beat up k-22 of some sort with a little luck? I love mine.

I have put a lot more rounds through some of my low-cost .22 handguns and rifles.

Yeah, that's a thousand rounds, not 1000k that I mistyped. Sorry.

The Rough Rider is ok, but I'd sooner find an old used High Standard Sentinel or H&R for the same price.

I was gonna say that's pretty dang impressive if it held up that we'll. I don't doubt some guys have shot that much.

A million rounds thru one gun would be pretty cool.

Like nathanours said- maybe with some luck you could find a worn/used K-22. I think they're the finest 22 handguns ever built and swear by mine. I have an old H&R 922 that I keep in my tackle-box and for what it is it's a decent little gun. You could prob pick one up for $150-250 no problem.

Yeah, if I could find an H&R or a S&W, or anything like I'd take it.

A K22 would be awesome, but about 3x out of the price range. The H&R would be in there, but even a good used Sportsman is pushing $400 these days. An IJ Sealed Eight or HS Sentinel is easier to find for a fair price, the H&R 922, 676/686 and Trappers can also be find pretty cheap.

I also agree with the K22 - Model 17 thought but they seem to be creeping up all the time.

They're out there, $200 will still get some quality on the used market if you're patient.

I'd also recommend looking around for a good used H&R revolver. I bought a brand new Rough Rider a couple years ago and I didn't care for it one bit. I had to do a little filing to the cylinder so the rounds would eject and I had to bend and grind the front sight way more than I liked because it was shooting so far off. I ended up selling it and came across a used H&R 939 at my LGS and after I put a new main spring in it, it is 100% flawless and it cost me half of what the Rough Rider did.
