Video Review: Heritage Rough Rider Rancher Carbine Rifle

This wheelgun-action carbine, chambered in .22 LR, is as fun as it is handy!

posted on April 29, 2022

Although the concept of a revolver carbine isn't new, Heritage Manufacturing's Rough Rider Rancher Carbine rifle is. This carbine rifle is based on the very same Rough Rider Rancher revolver that you've come to know and love, but it now has a buttstock affixed for extra utility ... and fun. Chambered in .22 LR, this wheelgun carbine works just like a single-action revolver (because that's what it is). With its six-shot capacity and nimble frame, it's ideal for farm work, as a "truck gun" or just to take out plinking on a lazy Sunday. In this video review from our friends at American Rifleman, you'll get all the details of how to operate the Rough Rider Rancher Carbine and why we love it. Visit for more.
