New six inch Bearcat - Lipsey's exclusive

Not on Ruger's site yet. Has a fluted cylinder. Only shows blued finish, no mention of stainless. Same price as standard blued Bearcat. Two ounces heavier. I expect holsters will be scarce, as no one has even made a good one for the adjustable sight version yet.

Looks okay, but kinda defeats the whole point of a Bearcat being a kit gun.

Before you buy a Ruger SA 22 . This is 10X better then the last 8 SA 22 Ruger I purchased in the last 20 years and cheaper too .

My only comment on the 6" Bearcat is why. Take a little plinking revolver and turn it into something that looks awkward and I suspect is poorly balanced. I have a 6 1/2" Single Six (C) and it works on that, the Bearcat not so much.

At least the new six inch Bearcat is actually only 1.8 inches longer, since the standard model is 4.2 for Canadian law.

Mine balance on my trigger finger, even with the cylinder notches. I suspect the six inch Cat would be about 1/8" forward of that. Not much difference.

FWIW, my SP snub balances about the same, at the inside front of the trigger guard. The 4.2 SP .22 right at the intersection of the guard and frame.
