  1. Wax shooting blackhawk

    General Firearms Discussion
    At Jackson gun today. Three guys were set up and had a ruger wax shooting Blackhawk in 45acp. They wanted 500 for it with holster which I thought was crazy. It was made from a 3 screw 357 frames but had a 45 cylinder and bbl. but did not look like Ruger’s. Had big side hammer on it. Anyone know...

    I found this 2013 Ruger Blackhawk .44 Special in a local pawn shop a few days ago. It's a flattop with a 4 5/8" barrel. Other than a turn line and a couple of small scratches it looked new. Last night I pulled the cylinder out to clean it before taking photos and found that it appears to...

  6. New Blackhawk

  7. My First Blackhawk

    General Firearms Discussion
    I have Ruger revolvers, but finally got around to getting a Blackhawk. It is a 1976 .357. I like the engraving on the '76 models...200 years of liberty sure sounds good...I know my photography skills suck, but no hairy toes in the photo, so give me a little credit!

    2/15/17 Ruger New Model Blackhawk Convertible – 45 ACP Prologue Memories are often unreliable and, at my age, can often be somewhat embellished by wishful thinking. Okay, having got that bit of whimsy out of the way, let me tell you how I remember it. Going back 50 years or better I’ve...
