I had my local gun store order a Lipsey's Shopkeeper, blued, fluted barrel. First, the good. More like.....the excellent. The fit and finish was top notch. Fit of the metal and wood grips was extremely well done. Second, the not so good. The functioning of the revolver was substandard. The trigger was pretty heavy. Removing the cylinder was problematic. The cylinder moved too much on full cock. A lot of revolvers will move side to side slightly [on a varying level, of course], but this one also had some lateral movement....almost like either the base pin was a few microns too small in diameter, or the hole in the cylinder was a few microns to big in diameter. Moving it to half cock and opening the gate, the cylinder seemed "vague", not precise like other SAA style revolvers. In fact,....I found the functioning to be either on the same level or maybe even a bit worse than the Heritage products. I did not purchase it. Quite bummed out about it because I was really wanting the tiny birdshead. It felt AWESOME in the hand and pointed well. If it had the typical Ruger quality, I would have had it in my collection. What has been your experience with the Bearcat [any style/model]?
