Sturm, Ruger & Company announce the 50th Anniversary Ruger Bearcat revolver, commemorating the small frame, single-action revolver William B. Ruger Sr. once described as "a mechanical jewel."
The limited edition 50th Anniversary Bearcat is a faithful and worthy tribute to its 1958 forebearer. It has plain but handsome cocobolo wood grips, a gold colored trigger guard, and a special gold-filled rollmark. It also has a special serial number prefix, and will only be manufactured in 2008. The 4-inch barreled revolver, chambered for the popular and inexpensive .22 LR cartridge, will be shipped in a new gun rug bearing the Ruger logo, together with a detailed history booklet.
