The rugged reliability, and the safe carrying characteristics of a Ruger® Bearcat® Single-Action Revolver make it a superb sidearm to take along on outdoor adventures. The Bearcat's compactness and lightweight makes it easy to carry in a daypack, tackle box, pocket, or hip holster. The size of the grip and the placement of the wide spur hammer make the small-framed revolver friendly to use with most adult-sized hands. The Bearcat uses Ruger's patented Transfer Bar mechanism that provides a block between the hammer and firing pin until the hammer is fully cocked all the way to the rear and the trigger is pulled. With the hammer down over a loaded chamber, the Bearcat Single-Action Revolver can be dropped directly on the hammer, or the thumb can slip off the hammer while cocking it, with no chance of the revolver firing accidentally—important features for a sidearm used in rough country. The 1-piece cylinder and grip frame, cylinder, and barrel are constructed with solid, blued steel. The Ruger Bearcat comes with a fixed blade front sight and an integral notch rear sight that facilitate drawing the sidearm, and the sights don't get easily knocked out of alignment with hard outdoor use. Reminiscent of the old Remington revolvers of the nineteenth century, the Bearcat offers good looks as well as functionality. Made in USA.
