Picked up a Lipsey Bearcat!



Log in to see fewer ads
I picked up the Lipsey Shopkeeper yesterday and its a good one. Took it to the range this morning and had a ball! It shoots fairly straight - feels great in the hand and is very well built. And considering all that I read about failure to extract the shells this revolver worked flawless. Another Ruger Winner!

Ooooh. The 3.5" barrel with long enough ejector and fluted cylinder. Very nice. Congrats!

Ruger makes a great little revolver but I just couldn't see paying the high price for one. I got the Heritage shop keeper in my hands for under $200; including a magnum cylinder. It does all I need it to do.

Seriously though, that Heritage looks like a viable alternative for those that need the larger trigger guard and Colt style grip frame.

"Shoots fairly straight"? Do the bullets curve?......

That's a nice addition. Now, if you don't have one, it needs a regular 4.2 inch Bearcat to go with it.....

Not so expensive to keep me from owning two stainless ones.....

I have a bunch of Ruger firearms. . . . just not the expensive Bearcat.

Nice looking Shopkeeper. I'm tempted to get one of those myself someday. I have a 1967 Bearcat now, but a new Shopkeeper is tempting. Congrats!

Ruger themselves have had alot of complaints about the cylinder failing to eject on the Bearcat shop keeper's first run - short barrel -shorter ejector. But on the Lipsey model the barrel is slightly longer so the shells do eject.
I am not knocking Heritage I have owned more than a few with no issue's - But this last one was a Lemon.

When you first shoot a Bearcat and your not use to shooting smaller guns there is a learning curve. They are not your everyday Mark IV - So when I say fairly straight - I'm talking more about myself than the revolver. They take a little time to get use to.
Oh and I do own a stainless 4.2
