    Smile I'm on the hunt

    Was in my basement tonight and looking though some of my draws I found some old Ruger Bearcat cylinders! I was a bit excited because they were in real god condition and just need to be polished up a little to bring the shine back. So I go back browsing a little then I see a couple of barrels, ejector housings, rods and springs, hammer (main) springs/main spring seats/hammer strut -all together, triggers, rebound springs and hammers. I was like WOW this is Great! It was my mission then to find the rest...the hunt was on lol. I just came up after 4 hours down there and going to have to go back down there tomorrow I need some sleep now. Tomorrow I will continue and try and find the rest but I don't think I'll be that lucky lol

    Nice smilely lol...Anyways looking further into this the cylinders are the older style Bearcat. Probably 60's early 70's. The frames and the other parts I found were for the old style Single Six (XR3-RED), which so happens I found the cynlinder and loading gates for a Single Six down there today. I know there were two styles of the XR3-RED and this one is the earlier style 3 screws. The only part I seem to be missing would be the Cylinder frame for the Single Six, which are not there. As long and hard as I looked it just was not there. Oh well knew I couldn't be that lucky lol. The hours down there were not all for nought. I found very old tools, Case knives, bone knives, bunch of bolts and one bolt that looked like it was for a massive round. If anyone is interested to look at that bolt I could post pics of it. It was rather fun and greasey lol. Found a few interesting tools that I have no clue as what they are for lol. Looks like I will just keep the Bearcat cylinders as decoration and forget about the Single Sixes

    I love it when I go into my boxes of put away items and fine treasures that I have forgot about - projects that I started and then put on the back burner when the next new one comes along

    sheesh, I never forget such things, never have so much going on that such is even a possibility. Of course, I have very little else but my guns going on! :-)

    I just received a Bearcat 22 made in 1971. The gun is in mint condition and the cylinder is missing. By chance do you still have extra cylinders? If you do would you consider selling one?

    Same, I know and know where everything I have is, so there's no big surprise like this in my life, unless I take down a wall and there's something in it lol

    I always find surprises in my basement :) Found some old bolts and they have no markings, numbers, cartouches, etc. and I don't even recognize them.
