I have a crazy question. Could you put a single six bisley grip frame on a ruger bearcat. I am asking this because my hands don't get along with a traditional single action grip I know that someone put one on a single six with a 9 1/2 in barrel I have came up with an idea for a "kit gun" using a bearcat converted to 22 mag with a bisley grip but I don't know If such an animal can even be made

Nope…two totally different frames, the Bearcat's grip frame being one piece with the pistol frame.

However, the standard Single Six frames will accept Bisley grip frames…there are a few who have done the conversion. Ruger also did a limited run of stainless Bisley Single Six Convertibles, serial numbered 1 to 250, only for Ruger employees. I've only seen one of these ever come up for sale.

Now that I think about it…someone was offering "man-sized grips" for Bearcats, which extended down quite a bit for a better grip.

I'll see if I can find those.

Thanks, I figured it wouldn't work but it couldn't hurt to ask

When I get another milling machine, I'll happily build you a Franken-Six-Cat-Bisley. :biggrin:

Does it have to fire? :driver:

I know a birds head grip on a bearcat is a neat grip. It can be had in 22 mag, also, IIRC.

As a shooter whose little girly hands also don't get along with single action frames, I was also going to suggest a bird's head grip. Ruger has had various models made in these, along with some other manufacturers. Might be worth the hunt.
