Heritage Rough Riders have been around for awhile, they can handle .22WMR just fine,
as long as the lock timing is correct on the pistol...so enjoy that capability of the pistol
If you were using Remington .22LR ammo, that's probably where the failures came from.
Although, it being a Phoenix, it coulda been the gun as well.
