I finally got to bring it home. But it’s raining so I’ll have to wait to shoot it. I do like the way it feels. On most of the reviews I’ve seen on this, they talk about how the safety lets one loaded 6 rounds in it. However the owner’s manual states, “Do not carry this revolver with a live cartridge chambered under the hammer and firing pin. Keep an empty chamber under the hammer with the hammer block in the up (safe) position.”. “If you must carry your Rough Rider, for models with a 6 shot cylinder, "load one, skip one, load four". For models with a 9 shot cylinder, "load one, skip one, load 7". That way your Rough Rider will have an empty chamber under the lowered hammer, but will fire when you cock the hammer back and pull the trigger.” To me, that kind of defeats the purpose of the manual safety. It does say if you’re going to shoot it right away, load six. Here’s a video of Hickok45 reviewing it. You can see when he forgets to take the safety off, the safety does work.
