Nice looking pair...

Nice looking pair Scooter. I have those two and love them both. But it has occurred to me that when I see the front sight on a long barrel dancing around more, it is just that the longer barrel makes noticing it easier. Both of my revolvers shoot very well, but the days when I have had two targets up and alternated between the two, the longer barrel has shot a bit tighter groups. The same thing happens when shooting the offhand matches and using rifles with iron sights, scopes with low power and scopes with high power. The high power scopes let you see clearly any tremor in your hold, where on the other end, iron sights, you feel like you are steady as can be. The proof is always on the paper.

Just joined the RimfireCentral forum a few minutes ago. Why? Because this Forum has a dedicated Ruger Bearcat section, AND, just this morning Santa brought me a 1973 Super Bearcat to compliment my 1977 Single Six 4-5/8 Convertible.
So as of this morning at daybreak, I became an owner of both. Santa also provided a set of NOS Jay Scott 24a mahogany laminate grips (spare) and a Bianchi BCAT Lawman #1 holster. Thank you, Santa!

Santa was extra nice to you, now lets see some pics of that Bearcat and holster. Here is one of mine.

Terminatorret, Welcome to the forum and congratulations on your new to you Bearcat. They are a fine revolver, I once owned one of the same vintage as yours, wish I still owned it.

I am not-so patiently-awaiting the Bianchi BCAT Lawman #1 holster from Ebay, but as soon as it arrives (next Wednesday?) I'll post both Bearcat and Single Six with their respective holsters!

New and old of both.
I have shot the new Bearcat plenty off the bench waiting for centerfires to cool.
No problem pinging shotgun shells at 30 yards.
It hits rattlesnakes in the head too

Sadly I had to sell off all my Firearms a while back. But I am slowly buying my Favorites back. These two will mostly likely be my last purchase. I owned a bunch of Semi"s but prefer the slowness of a good Fixed sight revolver. The Bearcat's can be a bit pricey so I always buy mine used near mint. They are just a beautiful little handgun.
The Single Six combo is a special run of Stainless with a 4 5/8 barrel - to me the true Cowboy gun in 22LR. Ken

I have the 4 5/8 Single Six with fixed sights . Such a fun gun to shoot . Love that length barrel . Feels great in the hand .
Ive actually given thoughts of having someone shorten one of my Bisleys to 4 5/8 . Nice pair ! Kirby.

A friend has one that I shot a cylinder full into under 2" at 20 yards offhand a few weeks ago. He will not even talk about selling it. They fit in a hip pocket for a walk around gun just great. Good luck.

The first Bearcat I had was the best shooting one. I bought it in 1960. It was a terrific handgun. Sorry to say it was stolen a few years later. I finally bought a used 2008 version a few years ago. It is a super little pistol, but not nearly as accurate as the first one.

My SS is a good shooter, but still not as accurate as my first Bearcat.
