Have a Shot! Heritage Manufacturing Introduces the Barkeep 2″ Revolver
Terry Nelson 01.13.21
Short-barreled pistols and revolvers are just as interesting to me as carbines… I like ’em! Now Heritage Manufacturing has come out with a cool little 2″ barrel, rimfire revolver appropriately named the Barkeep. This pocket-sized revolver is a single-action for those of you with an old west affection and is just plain handsome to boot.
So, who is Heritage Manufacturing? Founded in 1992, the company is based in Bainbridge, Georgia and produces quality handguns that pay homage to the Old West. They make both small-bore and big-bore single-action “Rough Rider” revolvers chambered in 22 LR, 22 Mag, 45 Colt, 357 Mag, 44-40 Win, and 38 Special +P. In the following press release Heritage Manufacturing discusses their newest release and all of the features of this Old West inspired wheelgun.
“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.“
