Heritage Manufacturing, Inc., is known for producing single-action revolvers styled after some of the most iconic guns in American history. Now they are introducing the newest model in their lineup, the Barkeep rimfire revolver.

The pint-sized Barkeep revolver was inspired by the 19th Century Colt Storekeeper model and continues Heritage’s tradition of making quality guns with an Old West flair. The single-action Barkeep ships with a 2-inch barrel and a 6-shot cylinder that shoots affordable .22 LR ammo. There is also an option to use an interchangeable .22 WMR 6-shot cylinder, sold separately for added flexibility and more power.

The Barkeep mirrors the original Colt Storekeeper’s utility as a concealable revolver wrapped up in a light and portable package. It has fixed open sights for fast action and a clean sight picture. There are several grip options that provide classic western styling which compliments 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.
