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.
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.
Heritage Rough Rider Upgrades & Accessories
“Cheap, fun, and kinda cool – that is the Rough Rider in a single sentence. Only running about $100-175, the Rough Rider is easy on the wallet and makes the decision to buy a goofy plinking gun that much easier. You can get all sorts of barrel lengths and grip designs to fit your style, making it even more appealing. As for the actual shooting experience, it is okay…at best. Shooting .22 LR is always fun, and feeling like a cowboy is even cooler, but the Rough Rider has limitations. The accuracy is nothing to write home about, and it definitely isn’t enough to be considered a great training aid. My Rough Rider tends to shoot about an inch and a half left at 7 yards, and the sights aren’t adjustable. But hey, it was $120 bucks and it’s fun, and that’s what matters with these guns. They make for great gifts, whether to yourself or for a family member.” – Wyatt Sloan
