The Bearcat has an all one piece grip frame and receiver like the Remington. The shape of the grip frame and panels is pure Remington. The shape of the top strap is like the Remington. The way the triggerguard attaches is just like the Remington. Put a full triggerguard and a round barrel with ejector on the Remington and you've got a Bearcat. The lockwork is pure Old Model, even the New Bearcat still retains a half cock notch. I do believe there is a reference in "Ruger and his Guns" to the Bearcat being inspired by the Remington pocket. The only Colt that small was the 1849/1862 Police/Pocket Navy frame size but they were open tops.
