Well if you were trying to get a well built, good shooting, workhorse of a revolver for not a lot of money you did great. If that wasn't your plan I guess I would have to pass on your question.:)

Well it looks like a nice RUGER revolver...I do chase a few of these but I do only the ones with the 3 screw action not the newer 2 pin style.....here are some pics of the differences......RR

The Blackhawk arrived today and its my first one, first impression WOW This thing is built like a Tank ! Great quality heavy revolver... looking forward to shooting some of my 38 spl target loads through it. A quetion maybe someone can answer.... i really love the Bisley style hammer and was wondering if i could install a Power custom bisley hammer myself or do i need to send it out to someone like Bowen.

I'm a cowboy action shooter, while I shoot Colt 2nd gen SAAs, I have many friends who work on and shoot Rugers. Including changing out hammers. You might go to sassnet.com, open the sass wire fourm and search for info on changing hammers out. Oh you did well on your new pistol. I'm looking at one here in MS and its much more.

You surley won't get a better deal in these parts.
FYI, a friend had that in .30 carbine, and made a serious error with some hadloads. I mean SERIOUS.
Scary bad. Like double charge or more of Bullseye bad
The revolver was completely un-damaged. Good as new. The cases had to be driven out with a drift, though. I actually saw about a foot fire shoot out ( blue flame) the gap and about a 18" fireball out the muzzle. In broad daylight. And a supersonic report not unlike a rifle.
Fact is those things are, for all practical purposes, indestructable.
That was about 35 years ago and he still shoots that thing to this day.

Great guns. I had a .45C one that I sold last year when I found a SAA for sale. For shooting the blackhawk is great. A few things about an SAA that the BH doesn't have--4 clicks, chamber lineup, etc--but are great shooting guns. Especially for the money.
