I was a member of this forum several years back. My interest was heavy loadings of 41 magnum in a series of Ruger Single Action revolvers. Several BlackHawks but my baby then and still is a Ruger Super BlackHawk Hunter Bisley in 41 Mag that has been touched up by a noted handgun gunsmith.

Then the CAS bug bit. 13 years of Italian cap and ball Colt clones and now finally back to Ruger in the form of Old Armys.

I can't leave any of my guns alone. I would like to drop the hammer spurs on the Old Armys to the configuration of the Super Black Hawk hammer but I have no diagrams to send to my gunsmith. Does any one have a drawing with the necessary specs?

Welcome back.

The easiest thing to do is send him a SBH hammer.

You have two options:

1. He can try to lower the hammer spurs on you ROA hammers and that will cost you a lot of dough for his time, or

2. Send him two SBH hammers and just have him graft the two spurs to the ROA hammers by tig welding. Much faster and therefore cheaper and will make up for the $60 for the two hammers.

But best of all, they will be exactly the right profile and with a wide spur!

That was done on this single six to make a .22 SBH hammer:
