For your use, buy the heritage. For a gun you want to pass on or shoot for accuracy, spend the money and get the Ruger.

Ruger also offers the Wrangler which is a nice gun, bit only comes in one cylinder.

It boils down to how hard you are gonna be on it and are you gonna be willing to baby it some trapping. I have a S&W 617 6” that I carry trapping but baby it and dont trap that hard anyway. That said….

I never regretted buying quality I have regretted buying cheap thinking I would grow to like it more

After buying a Franchi years ago and turning around and buying a Benelli a couple of years later because that was what I really wanted to start with, I tend to stick with the buy once, cry once motto.
I wanted a .22 revolver for a long time and looked at cheaper models but knew the Ruger Single Six was what I really wanted, thus it’s what I own.

How does that 617 shoot? Always wanted one.

I have a heritage pistol . Mine is the 22/22 mag. Never use the 22 mag cylinder. I use it 100% trapping. I couldn't see buying a higher price one. As much as i am around the water. If i ever lost it. 160.00 dollar pistol is alot easier to replace then a 400.00 one. I have killed alot of fur with that pistol. Never had any issues with it. I am looking for a heritage pistol with adjustable sights .

You know hillbilly got money. I heard he cowrote ZZ Top's Sharp Dressed Man. Just that one line, "I don't worry cause my wallets fat."

That's a good one, as I haven't fallen in the sharp dressed man category in a long time, if ever. You guys got me confused with my buddy Allen from down south. I got mine through judicious shopping before the prices of S&W pistols went crazy. I'd not sell one of these for what I have in both.
