Default New to me Ruger .44mag

Picked this up on a private sale the other day. It is a Super Blackhawk 3 screw model. Doesn't have the original grips but at $350 I think I did OK.

Check eBay there are a lot of nice custom grips that will fit your gun for under $50. Most of the grips on eBay are well made from #1 wood. I got a nice set of target grips for my Super Blackhawk on eBay for $40. The grips fit well with no fitting required. I told the vendor I had large hands. I got a nice fat set of grips in less than 2 weeks.

I'm thinking this one is going to have to have wood grips. Doesn't look quite right with the rubber grips. Thanks for the tip about ebay.

Yes I am serious.

I have a minty one (purchased a couple months ago), and know that just chuck and deer hunting, in and out of the holster is gonna add honest wear to it. Nothing wrong with that, gives it character, but my rig is spotless, and it's made it through 42 yrs that way.

I'd much rather get one with some wear and make it prone to less I'd hunt that bad boy HARD and the true beauty would be in all the stuff I killed with it, not the supposed lost collector value.

BTW, my Python has quite a bit of holster wear on it, was like that when I got it. But I leave it as is due to the memories of he who used it before me. I will retire it "as is" when I get a stainless one to hunt with.
