OM Blackhawk .44mag
 
What would be a reasonable price for an OM 3-screw Super Blackhawk in .44mag? Been checking on-line, prices are all over the place. This pistol is in very good condition with a very slight ring on the cylinder. 7 1/2 bbl.

The last one I bought asking price was $300, owner took $275.

Saw a converted Three Screw, owner was asking $795! He still has that gun.

If the gun has been converted, with the factory installed transfer bar and no original parts, around $200~$225. Unconverted, or with original parts, $300~$400. Unconverted Three Screw models will bring a much better price, as they are more highly desirable.

If you must have the transfer bar action, buy a New Model.

I think Bobs pretty close on prices-
As for the ring--If it doesn't have the "Ruger Ring" its either never been shot or not a Ruger :D

Love the sound of an old Ruger as you cock back the hammer. Very wonderful sound. Nothing else like it in the gun world. Worth owning one of those just for that sound.

Has it been converted or is it still original?

I bought an unconverted OM 357 about a year ago for $300 out the door.

Also Sq or round trigger guard?

There is a "flattop" .357 made in 1957 at my local gun store that I've been eyeing. The gun is in good mechanical shape, but the bluing has been worn down to a uniform bluish grey color. Their price on it is $500.

Yes, indeed, the original Flat Tops do bring a premium. But with that much wear, $500 is a too much.

That's why it's not in my gun cabinet. If it comes down to $350, it's mine.
