Revolvers Descriptions

Charter Arms Dixie Derringer

Chambered in .22 LR, the single action Dixie Derringer is a fun little pocket gun. It is also a lightweight revolver ideal for moderate-risk concealed carry applications. This quick-drawing pocket revolver is accurate at close range and features Charter’s patent-pending hammer block safety. The Dixie Derringer, particularly in its Magnum configuration, discharges with sufficient loudness to get any assailant’s undivided attention and suggest that he’ll have a bad day if he gets any closer—a desired effect in concealed carry situations.

Ruger Bearcat

Understated Elegance. The Ruger New Bearcat is different from other single-action revolvers. Smaller, lighter, and based on older Remington single-actions of the 1800's, it has a one-piece cylinder frame that also forms its compact grip. It has been described as "a mechanical jewel," and is the smallest and lightest 22 LR caliber single-action made by Ruger. Compact and perfectly proportioned for 22 LR caliber ammunition, it is easy to carry and fits comfortably in a backpack or tackle box. Fulfilling the ideal of a smaller "kit gun" style 22 LR caliber single-action revolver, it is perfect for hikers, campers, boaters, small game hunters, or just about anyone who needs a dependable 22 LR revolver for the trail.
