Bearcat 0916 availability?

This is the Lipsey's blued Bearcat with adjustable sights. I'm seeing that it's out of stock just about everywhere with only a few copies for sale on Gunbroker. I was assuming that since this is included on Ruger's site that it's a regular production model? Does anyone know if there just a lull in production or if this out of production? Trying to figure out whether I need to jump on one or if I can wait. I noticed on the Lipsey's site that the stainless version is "on sale" so I wasn't sure if this was some kind on indication that they were clearing them out.

I sent a message to Lipsey's to try and find out. I have no idea how these "exclusives" work. I understand that some are limited run and some make it into Ruger's regular catalog but I have no idea where this one falls.

Probably made in batches whenever Lipsey's decides to order more of them.

Two months ago I bought a Talo edition New Vaquero that had been introduced last summer. It's still listed in the Ruger catalog, but the .45 Colt version has been out of stock in a lot of online stores. The .357 version (which I bought) seems to be readily available online.

So who knows, especially with Bearcats?

$422 and 10 in stock. These guys are great to deal with. They take money orders and set up the FFL transfer for you.

Have that one already (blued shopkeeper) and also agree about Toole (buy everything from them if I can). I'm actually looking at 0916 (adjustable sight version). There are a few available here and there. I just wasn't prepared to buy it now.

I had no idea an adjustable sight bearcat existed.

I did hear back from Lipsey's first thing this morning. They are out of stock of this right now but have more on order. No ETA at this point but at least I know it's not discontinued and I can wait until later to get one.
