The Ruger “Bearcat” .22 single action revolver was first announced in the August 1958 issue of the National Rifle Association’s American Rifleman magazine. Sturm, Ruger & Co. began shipping these fine little guns the same month.

The original Bearcat had a one-piece cylinder/grip frame made of an aluminum alloy that was blue anodized, a 4” steel barrel, six shot non-fluted steel cylinder that was roll marked with a “Bear and a Cougar” scene and with the words “Ruger” and “Bearcat”. The gun had a Colt style fixed grooved rear sight and a 1/4 inch tall fixed front sight with no base. It also had a steel ejector rod housing, a concave faced ejector rod button, and a gold/brass colored anodized trigger guard. The grip panels were rosin impregnated rosewood without a medallion. The gun’s overall length was only 8-3/4 inches and it weighed in at a scant 17 ounces.

One of Bill Ruger's favorite automobiles was the Stutz Bearcat and it is said that he named this revolver after that automobile. It is also believed that the 1858 Remington New Police percussion revolver inspired many of the styling characteristics that can be seen in the little Bearcat.

Gun enthusiasts and outdoorsmen quickly took a liking to this light, compact, quality made, dependable revolver and its introduction was a great success. It quickly became a favorite sought after trail gun or backpack “kit” gun.
