I know a few people that had no trouble converting them to .22WMR.

My 1960 Bearcat has an aluminum frame and is very lite. It is as accurate as the small frame S&W's with a common barrel size. Although I did own 2 newer models that I gotten rid of prior to it for being unsatisfactory.

Conversions to .327 Federal Magnum have been done in the past, but they required work on the frame, I believe.

I don't think it's worth having done custom when stuff like the Black Widow NAA's are out there and much smaller/lighter than the Bearcat.

I think the .327 in a Bearcat would be my ultimate kit gun!
But 1500.00??

15 years ago a charcoal and canvas Picasso went for 10 million dollars, for sure a custom one off Bearcat is worth a measly $1500.00.

Bearcat?

the bearcat is small but still useful. i’ve brought mine along on beach or forest walks in a fanny pack. the shopkeeper is smaller still and more elegant, but too small to be a decent shooter, it’s a safe queen. the bearcat is an accurate enough 30’ plinker in my hands, the shopkeeper much less so. if i want accuracy i step up in size/weight to a single six.
