I'm looking forward to firing this.
My other firearm is a Glock G19.
Can't wait to feel the recoil on this

Is it a 357mag?

Recoil should be tempered by the barrel length. Very Nice.

Thanks for identifying this revolver for those of us who don't know what we're looking at.

.45 is no big deal for recoil. The issue most people have with recoil on single actions is caused by the spade shaped grip. It's designed to roll upward from recoil. It takes some getting used to that's all. Enjoy your new six shooter.

Recoil will not be bad. I have several Blackhawks. They are built like tanks.

Recoil will be fine just don't hold it as tight as you would the glock. The SA revolvers tend to roll up in your hand with that grip. Enjoyable revolvers and makes a great hunting handgun too.

Two good things about .357 magnums and .44 magnums. And those are; .38 special and .44 special.
