Taurus USA reenters Cowboy Action Pistol Market, Acquires Heritage Manufacturing

    Taurus USA has acquired Heritage Manufacturing, a Floridian manufacturer specializing in old west style single action revolvers. Heritage main product line is their Rough Rider .22 LR/Mag combo revolver although they also make single action revolvers chambered in .32 H&R Mag, .45 LC and .357 Magnum.

    Heritage is a good fit for Taurus. Heritage is also based in Florida. They both produce revolvers at the budget price point. Taurus USA exited the cowboy action pistol market a few years ago when they discontinued the Taurus Gaucho. By all accounts the Gaucho had a number issues. The Heritage Rough Rider competed directly with the Gaucho, with the former being considered a better gun.

    It should be noted that Taurus, via. their Rossi band, import lever action rifles and shotguns popular with cow boy action shooters.
