Heritage's Barkeep rimfire revolver is a pint-sized blast.
There are those things that no matter how archaic they become never lose their allure. Fireplaces, antique cars and single-action revolvers. Handgun technology has made the style of wheelgun a living fossil of sorts, with—outside hunting—few practical purposes. Yet, there is always a special feeling fanning back the hammer and tripping the hair-trigger on one of these beauties.
Heritage Manufacturing hit all these right notes in the most recent addition to its stable in its rimfire rendition of the storied Colt “Storekeeper” revolver. Dubbed the Barkeep, the .22 LR/.22 WMR six-shooter offers the same Old West style as the original double-action, but at a price most shooters can afford with an MSRP of $180.
