First Look: Heritage Barkeep Rimfire Revolver

Heritage Barkeep 1

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.

Heritage Manufacturing, Inc., producers of classic-style single-action revolvers, is pleased to announce the newest member of the family—the Barkeep.

This pint-sized revolver has an Old West flair and was inspired by the 19th Century Colt “Storekeeper” model. The single-action Barkeep comes chambered and ships with the affordable .22 LR 6-shot rimfire cylinder and two-inch barrel. This revolver is also compatible and designed to work with an interchangeable .22 WMR 6-shot cylinder option.

Built for optimal concealability in a light and portable package, the Barkeep boasts fixed open sights for fast action and a clean sight picture. Several grip options deliver classic western styling to compliment the standard black oxide or case-hardened frame finish. With a two-inch barrel configuration, this compact carry revolver also includes a stylish ejector pin with a turned wood handle with an “H” logo on top to give it the full days of yore feel. The Barkeep checks all the boxes for form and function.
