  1. The heft of a stainless NMBH, 4.62''

    Ruger Single Action
    Hi there, I've really got my eyes set on a blued new model Blackhawk, 357, 4.62'' barrel. But I've read that the blued version has the aluminum grip frame and a cheaply "painted" aluminum cylinder pin (if I got that right). Anyone here own the same version but in stainless? According to...

    Ruger Single Action
    Hi everyone. I just picked up my first blackhawk, but when I took it home I realized the front sight was leaning left. It looks as if the barrel wasnt threaded on enough. It is very noticeable to me and really bugs me. I haven't shot it yet so I dont know how it shoots, but I was wondering if I...

There appears to be something that can screw into the top of the frame with one little screw. Doesn't seem to have any wear on the...

But upon closer examination it was in very good condition. It's all cleaned up and pretty, I took it to the range and was pleasantly surprise how...
