Revolvers Descriptions

Colt Single Action Army

Overall decent condition, shows normal use and wear for its age. Manufactured in 1874, Colt SAA 1873. Includes Kopec Letter, firearm was from #10279 Calvary. See photos for details.

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.
