Well I am disappointed. It looks like the 44 special Blackhawks are no longer listed as a catalogued item. I suppose sales weren't good enough. I guess it's a good thing I put mine in order last week.
I would agree for the most part however I'm sure there are many members with tight budgets that probly can't always jump on a deal ( I was certainly one of those in my younger days ) so for them it's probably a bummer moment, I'm sure we have all been thereIt's a chambering that appeals to a rather small percentage of the market of which it seemed most with the interest jumped as soon as they initially became available. Can't believe the sales for them has been too strong in their big picture. They've been readily available for quite some time now so kinda zero excuses for the "awwww, that's bad, they shouldn't do that, I really wanted one..." stuff. They provided the opportunity for quite a while, if someone didn't take advantage of it then...
Yep, been there with the Ruger Old Army in my younger days.... But now have several.... I think you'll see the flattops come and go, and will be able to find one. Like the Old Army, there was 3 at the last gun show I went to.with tight budgets that probly can't always jump on a deal
FYI...Chad at ChigsGrips is now offering grips that fit the Talo Flattop mid-frame. The stock black plastic just didn't do my Flattop justice, jus' sayin'Yeah, I am really looking forward to getting my stainless Talo flattop. I know it is the way things work. Big companies like Ruger have to pay attention to sales numbers. But in all honesty, Ruger is dang good and working with dist. Like Talo, Lipseys, etc. and have been giving us some truly awesome revolvers!
Thanks for the info. I haven't decided for sure if I will keep the factory grips on it or not. I will have to wait until I have it in hand.FYI...Chad at ChigsGrips is now offering grips that fit the Talo Flattop mid-frame.
Eventually they might. But like others have said, There will still probably be runs now and then. Hopefully.Dang that's too bad. I've always wanted to get one of these 44 Specials. Guess they'll be collector items now.
