The fit on the Rough Rider is good, no complaints from me. The cylinders slip right in and there is no unnecessary slop or looseness in the cylinders. The trigger clicks right into position and the release is light and quick. You better be ready to shoot when you put you finger on the trigger.
Mine is still new, I have only shot it a few times, so I can't offer much on the durability of the finish, but so far I'm not worried about it.
I have one. I use plugs only. I really can't tell any difference between any rounds used and noise difference. My ears ring, so I do use ear protection. Being in the Air Force and working the flightline has not helped my hearing.
