Firearm Description

Understated Elegance. The Ruger® New Bearcat® is different from other single-action revolvers. Smaller, lighter, and based on older Remington® single-actions of the 1800's, it has a one-piece cylinder frame that also forms its compact grip. It has been described as "a mechanical jewel," and is the smallest and lightest .22 LR caliber single-action made by Ruger.

Compact and perfectly proportioned for .22 LR caliber ammunition, it is easy to carry and fits comfortably in a backpack or tackle box. Fulfilling the ideal of a smaller "kit gun" style .22 LR caliber single-action revolver, it is perfect for hikers, campers, boaters, small game hunters, or just about anyone who needs a dependable .22 LR revolver for the trail.

  1. A fine lil' pistol Review by Bill Butler

    It' a fine re-introduction of the first model Bear Cat. Price is the problem. Originally sold for $49.50 back in the day. The price actually was reduced within a few years, as it was a huge seller and volume of sales made up for the reduction to $39.50. Oh well, those were the days of 25 cents a gallon gas, also. The frame on the new one is steel vs. the original was aluminium. Makes a great companion for a Henry .22 lever action. Look out "Duke" (Wayne, not the self-anointed, posser Venturino) (Posted on 5/3/13)

    Pros: Shoots everything I feed, Accurate, Simple Design, Easy to maintain, Nice Recoil, Reliable
    Cons: Expensive, Pricey
