Why would you have to pay a transfer fee, do they not have them in the store?

I have yet to find one in a store near me. I do have my name on a list at Gunmart.

The problem is that by the time you pay transfer fees it's not a good deal. :( 

 $35 for the "local" FFL and $0 Tax. $215 seems fairly good to me. If your local store had it in stock at the same price wouldn't it only be about $7 less?

The big question is do they shoot straight w/o any windage adjustment?

That would probably be negative.  But single actions have been around so long that just about everyone that's been around firearms, know how to adjust one out.

Sportsmen's Warehouse in Murfreesboro has them at $199.99. They gave me 10% off for proving that I was a veteran with my VA card.

Can't say much about quality comparison betwen Ruger and Heritage as I don't have the experience to talk about that.

I can say Heritages a lot better looking (my opinion) and more choices in style.

They also have more choices in size - 4 1/2 inch, 6 inch, and even a 16 inch. Plus MAG Cylinders for extra $30.  

Prices vary from $99 to $119, to ($139 or $169 for the dual cylinder). Depends on where you shop. Smky Mtn Gun & AMMO has a bunch in stock and marked down ($99 / $114 for some and think I saw $139 for one with the MAG included). They eben had one of the 16 inch (don't recall the price on it).  

I will go with the Heritage (looks, price, model choices, etc.) despite the fact I get some (I repeat some) keyholing out of my 4 1/2 inch 22LR Heritage (I don't have the MAG Cylinder, so shoot 22LR only). It seems to do better with lower velocity AMMO (less than 1150fps - discovered that one day when shooting with a friend looking at keyholes and switched to some 710 FPS and had no keyholes). Heritage said should shoot anything up to 1300 something). 

All in all - single six is jut sort of a fun (cowboy) thing the way I see it. Load and unload like the cowboys (except in movies when they just keep shooting).

The stupid safety on the heritage is the MAJOR downside.

Safety is not a big deal (For Me) and if you have it on and drop the gun, gun hits on it's hammer (No Problem).  And don't have to do the 19th century trick - Load one skip one then load four more (and only have 5 to shoot, I rather have 6). :-) 

Or, guess you can set hammer on the first latch point and hope if you drop it, it will not go off. 

For Me (defined) -- I just target shoot it, it's not a defense gun.

As is the crossbolt "safety" they started putting on all the new Marlin lever guns. Just plain lawyer dumb.

This is still in my want bucket.

Needs bucket is nearly full.

Desire bucket represents slightly more expensive items and projects.

The safety was not a big deal to me either and I didn't use it until I dropped the gun and shot myself.  I make sure it is on now and I appreciate the option.

It happens that way a lot. I know a guy who is alive today because of a magazine disconnect. One of the best inventions ever….for that guy. I like em.

      It appears that Colt is making a new King Cobra model revolver. I saw an ad in Guns & Ammo magazine this past issue. Makes me giddy that they may reissue the Python and my fave...the Anaconda 😁

      I have 3 pistols chanbered in .357 Magum.  I have 3 rifles chambered in .357 Magnum.
      I want a .357 Magnum semi-auto.  I know, I know.  Why not get a 10mm?  Why not get a .40?  Because I reload .357, have a ton of .357 ammo and don't want to introduce another caliber.  I so eagerly want a .357 semi-auto carbine.
      If anyone else is interested in one of these conversions, please contact MechTech today and show your support.  They won't build a conversion unless you ask.  They are already doing conversions for other 1911s.  I want them to build an upper for the Coonan 1911.
       
      Please show your support by contacting MechTech today: https://mechtechsys.com/Contact/tabid/6648/Default.aspx
      After contacting them, please share this post to other gun blogs so the interest can spread.  I don't want to have to pay a gunsmith thousands of dollars to do this conversion for me.
       
      I wasn't quite sure whether to put this post in handguns or long guns forum.  Technically, it's both.
