posted on July 21, 2017
Ruger Bearcat fans have continued to ask for variety in the line, and Lipsey's has responded once again by adding an exclusive 6" barrel model to the family of  22LR single-action revolvers. 

Lipsey's Vice President and Product Development Manager Jason Cloessner says he understands the value and popularity of the Ruger Bearcat platform and was eager to move the concept from paper to production. "The extra sight radius of a 6" barrel on the Bearcat makes hitting targets at distance much easier," he said. [Its] just begging to be packed in the field in a crossdraw Slim Jim style holster."

MSRP: $639
