    Anyone know if this revolver is still available? That Lipsey’s version is very nice I think.

    It is a cute little thing but, doggone it - what's with that ejector?

    I'm thinking a *little blue pill* is in order.

    Todd.

    We have the blued version of that and it is a really fun gun. My kids enjoy as do I. Never going to be sold and picked up from a local store.

    That short ejector stroke is why I prefer to shoot .22 Shorts in my Shopkeeper.

    I bought mine used a few years ago on a Father's Day sale at a LGS when prices weren't ludicrous.

    That 1/2" longer barrel and ejector are worth having the blued version, IMO. :)

    I've wanted a Bearcat Shopkeeper for a long time, but I just can't seem to pull the trigger when I've twice, years apart, held one. Maybe it's because my M63 would get jealous?

    I saw one (didn't hold it) at Academy about 8 months ago.

    I was referring to the droopy-looking nature of the *crescent* ejector rod button that they did on purpose. Looks..... unfinished to me.

    Gotcha. Yep, that was to clear the cylinder's center pin to gain that extra 1/8" of ejector stroke. And also to allow easier center pin removal as the center pin would hit a standard ejector button when pulling straight out.

    Sometimes it's best not to look at that side of the gun. :D

    Aha - then completely functional. Thanks for the explanation.

    I guess I should be happy that it even has one unlike the *BarKeep*.

    Todd.

    Bought one in 2019 and gifted it to my youngest grandson for his 10th birthday last year. Sweet little wheelgun.
