Congratulations! Enjoy that rascal.

Got the spring in over my lunch break and I'm back in business. Planning a range trip this weekend. Range report to come.

You will like it. There's nothing like a good super blackhawk. Mine groups my hunting loads right around 1 1/2" @ 50 yards with iron sights. Thats about the best I can do with my old eyes..

I'm hoping for similar range results, masterP. If so, deer will fall.

The Super Blackhawk is a great deer gun! Don't use the hollowpoints though, a jacketed 300-grain solid won't fragment on ribs or shoulder bones, and will penetrate better.

If you like yours anywhere near as much as I do mine, I'm sure you'll love it!
My barrel is a few inches longer & my grips a bit more chubby, but I must say, it's a BLAST to shoot! This SBH goes with me on every range trip...no matter what else I bring.



I feed mine a steady diet of 240gr FMJ reloads, pushed by 22gr of IMR4227.

Great addition Spitty! My Blackhawk is the most accurate .44 mag I've shot so far, but I haven't spent as much time with any other. You'll probably want some over-sized grips for shooting offhand, unless you have small(er) hands.

The guy that made me the grips (Black and White Ebony, Finger-grooved) in the following picture is very talented, reasonably priced and will make you anything you want. The finger grooves are a bit more, but well worth it. The fit was perfectly snug, true art.

I agree you'll love it!

Mine is from 1973 and has approx 20k rounds through it. In my youthful stupidity I had a PolyRib installed.....getting around to having it removed and the entire revolver re-finished. My dad and I shot long-distance silhouttes (sp??) and needed the rib to see the sights after several cylinders.

Congrats on a fine purchase!
