Summary: The description, specs, photos, pricing and user ratings for the Ruger New Bearcat revolvers.
Ruger‘s New Bearcat is a single-action-only revolver with a steel one-piece cylinder frame that also forms its compact grip. It’s chambered in .22 LR.
Ruger says it’s based on older Remington single-actions of the 1800s (it’s reminiscent of the old Remington Civil War-era revolvers), and the decorative unfluted cylinder displays a rollmark with a bear and cougar design.
Other features include:
- Either a blued or satin stainless finish;
- a blade front sight;
- a notch rear sight;
- wood grips; and
- Ruger’s transfer bar mechanism and loading gate interlock to provide security against accidental discharge.
The New Bearcat is the smallest and lightest .22 LR caliber single-action made by Ruger, and it comes with a hard plastic case.
The distributor Lipsey’s offers a number of dealer-exclusive New Bearcat models, including:
- The New Bearcat Shopkeeper, which features either a blued or stainless finish, a 3.5″ barrel, a birdshead grip and with either a fluted or unfluted cylinder; and
- New Bearcats with an adjustable rear sight.
