There's one at my local mart for 179.00 plus 10.00 background. Is it a deal?

The two I picked up, I got from Sportsmans Warehouse. I believe they were $199.99 each plus tax. Sounds like it's a reasonable price. Sportsmans doesn't charge for a backround check. Far as I know, no one does. Anyway, the time to jump is when you find one.

Yes, you won't find them cheaper than that.

I think Heritage must make various models, some cheaper than others. Must have to do w/frame (or grip frame?) materials.

The loss-leader Heritage revolvers that I have seen advertised for $99 on Black Friday and the like, are “Not available in MN.” Other Heritage revolvers are available here, albeit at a higher price point.

The new Wranglers aren’t available in MN, apparently due to a “melting point” law that we have on the books. I guess the zinc grip frame is the stumbling point.

At first I was angry and disappointed about it. Now, I’m just looking for another Single-Six, instead! 8)

I always figured if and when I got one, the low melting point, heavier zinc alloy (ZAMAK) grip frame would go in the trash and I'd replace it with a Single Six alum alloy grip frame/walnut grips; the #XR3 smaller old model (drill one hole for it to work on the NM). And adapt the NM trigger by removing the spring shelf on its back to use the OM grip frame trig return spring.

I'd get the silver one, blue the barrel and swap out the 'hollow' hammer, trigger, and non-fluted steel cyl parts for the Single Six parts. Make it a NM version of the old model Lightweight. Second one down on the left:
