No, they are stainless. I have one in brand new condition blued. If you want it, it is available. It is on a reblued 3 screw SBH (not a new model or conversion hammer). Just let me know. ThanksI wanted to put a SBH hammer on my blackhawk, but all I see are stainless steel hammers. Do they sell blued ones?
Yes, did I say anything to the contrary above? If so, I apologize.Marksman77, Here's what the 3 different Blackhawk hammers look like. They are NOT interchangeable. The hammer on the right is for a New Model BH, the center hammer is for an unconverted Old Model BH and the hammer on the left is for a converted Old model BH with a transfer bar. Note the absence of the hammer plunger on the conversion hammer (left) and note the absence of a top step on the standard Old Model hammer (center).
That one looks great! I tried the stainless hammer and blued trigger on my first swap and it just didn't feel right to me so I ordered the stainless trigger too. They're only $15.99 on MidwayUsaMontana, I did the same thing with my NM BH. I also installed a steel grip frame from a SBH.
MidwayUsa has Super Blackhawk hammers, New model stainless ones for $29.99. That's where I always get them. They're currently in stock. Ruger Hammer Ruger Super Blackhawk Hunter SSHaving said so, I could use a like new old model SBH hammer. Do you have one available for sale?
This, of course, is a matter of individual taste. I even don't like that blued hammers are "in the white" on the sides. So I blued the hammer on my Single Six. I think it looks better, some may think otherwise. But the gun is mine, and in that case my opinion is the only one that counts. Now that said,.....I am looking for a replacement grip frame (that's what made me stumble on this forum). My Single Six was made in 1978. Some a-hole hit the bottom of the trigger guard on some hard surface, and it has a "nice" dent in it (my son-in-law who gave me the gun as a present, had it in his possession for about 20 years, and he got it damaged like that on the gun show in Cali) . Hence,....I need a "new" frame. I would prefer steel/blue one, brass would be my second choice, stainless my third, and the original aluminum, my last. IF I find a stainless GF, I would put stainless hammer, and trigger on that revolver. To me, it would look like "it's meant to be". Somebody else might disagree.I’m with Bob on this, I much prefer blued hammers on blued revolvers.
