Editor’s Note:

If you’re looking for an easy-to-shoot plinker that’s great for all skill levels, the Heritage Barkeep ticks all those boxes. This single-action army inspired revolver is designed to be light and portable in a fun-to-shoot package. The Barkeep features a 2-inch barrel, a 6-shot .22 LR cylinder (.22 Magnum cylinders are available), and classic-style western grips. The frame uses a simulated case-hardened finish that helps give this gun its distinctive look.

By The Numbers - Heritage Barkeep

It’s no sharpshooter’s pistol, but it’s accurate enough for its purpose as a plinking handgun.
After hundreds of rounds, the gun still functioned without issue.
The Barkeep doesn’t offer you a ton of options in terms of customization. You can swap the cylinder and grips, and that’s it.
I don’t have any significant issues with the Barkeep’s ergonomics. I like the grip, and it’s easy to control and well balanced due to the short barrel.

Heritage Rough Rider 16″

Heritage Rough Rider 16″


The Heritage Rough Rider 16″ is inspired by the Colt long-barreled, long-range buntline revolvers of old. The Rough Rider is a single-action only revolver based on the old single-action army revolvers of the 19th century. It is available with either fixed sights or adjustable sights, and like all Rough Riders, users can easily swap a .22 Magnum cylinder in for added firepower and fun. The extremely long barrel gives shooters more accuracy, as well as a gun that is sure to turn heads at the range.

Colt King Cobra


The King Cobra is Colt’s revival of the medium-framed magnum revolver from their older “snake gun” lineup. While it may be a fairly standard 6-shot, 3-inch barreled revolver, it comes in at a price point similar to that of its competitors. This means you get the name value that comes with owning a Colt product without having to pay a premium for it.

final verdict

“Heritage makes fun little guns, and the Barkeep maintains their legacy. This little fella is a blast to shoot and provides a good deal of fun for a small amount of money. It goes bang consistently and paints a smile across my face every time I empty the cylinder.” – Travis Pike
