Heritage Manufacturing, Inc., producer of the classic-style Rough Rider single-action revolvers, takes “compact” to a new level with the introduction of the new Barkeep Boot series revolvers.

The Barkeep Boot is a downsized version of the recently introduced Barkeep revolver—a single-action rimfire based on the company’s popular Rough Rider series handguns available in two- or three-inch barrel lengths. In the spirit of the Old West, this new revolver from Heritage Mfg. moves the Barkeep from “waistcoat carry” to “boot carry” with its diminutive one-inch barrel and sleek bird’s head grip profile.

Chambered for .22 LR (will accept the Heritage .22 WMR cylinder), the Barkeep Boot comes with a new 1-inch barrel for optimal discreet carry in a revolver. Adding to the Barkeep Boot’s easy-carry nature is an elegant bird’s head-style grip, which offers a comfortable hold and a flowing aesthetic profile with less bulk when compared to the traditional “plow handle” grip.

Beyond the barrel length and grip, the Barkeep Boot delivers the familiar operation and quality construction of the Rough Rider series single-action revolvers on which it is based. This includes a hammer firing system, manual safety, classical notched rear sight, and black oxide barrel, frame, and cylinder finish.


Three models are offered with custom wood black grips, custom gray pearl grips, and custom-engraved wood grips. All revolvers come with a custom Heritage wood-handled ejector rod for removing empty cartridge cases.
