Known for its understated elegance, the Ruger Bearcat is different from other single-action revolvers. As the smallest and lightest .22 LR caliber single-action made by Ruger, the Bearcat has been described as "a mechanical jewel." The Bearcat design is based on older Remington single-actions of the 1800's with a one-piece cylinder frame that also forms its compact grip. Perfectly proportioned for .22 LR caliber ammunition, the revolver is easy to carry and fits comfortably in a backpack or tackle box. The kit-gun-style, single-action Bearcat is also perfect for hikers, campers, boaters, small game hunters, or just about anyone who needs a dependable .22 LR revolver for the trail. The decorative unfluted cylinder displays a rollmark with a bear and cougar design. The patented Ruger transfer bar mechanism and loading gate interlock provide an unparalleled measure of security against accidental discharge. This revolver features a blade front sight with a rear groove, a gold-plated trigger guard, and wooden grips. Its grips, metal, and bore are all in good condition.
