Just purchased the BH Bisley 45 stainless convertible w/ 5 1/2" bbl. I should have it in about a week. I got it mostly for big game hunting using heavy hand loads of long colt...For those in the know, this gun kicks some serious butt! Now all I need is a Barranti Northwest hunter rig!

I own a Bisley model Blackhawk in 45 Colt and admit it is my favorite revolver to shoot. It feels 'just right' in my hand.

Had a convertible for years. A fine, dependable gun,,,,, if you like six-shooters. It was an old model, three screw side plate, no transfer bar so you only loaded 5 for safety. Since one of my 1911's shoots .38 Super, had the 9mm cylinder machined to shoot that cartridge. Got rid of it a year or so ago. Nothing wrong with it, just don't care for six shooters.

The .45 caliber handguns have nothing to do with the OPs question. The .452 bullets are used in all the mentioned .45 Cal. Cylinders. The 9MM is smaller than the throat and bore of the 38/357 BH. The 9MM Cylinder does not shoot that good in the .357 BH. The small bullet .355-.356 fired from the short 19 MM has a jump before it egages the oversized throat and bore. Any serious test will prove this.

I was pleasantly surprised with the accuracy of my .357 NMBH with the 9mm cylinder. It was very accurate with .357 stuff, and not too much worse with CCI Blazer 9mm stuff. I don’t reload 9mm much and Blazer is a cheap way to shoot and it does pretty well.

I have talked with a few owners of the NMBH .357/9mm convertible and as far as accuracy goes, some have said the 9mm cylinder is so-so and others said they think the 9mm cylinder is only slightly less accurate as the. 357. I own the. 45 colt / 45 acp convertible and love, love, love it! I have been thinking about purchasing the. 357/ 9mm model to complement my six gun.... 5 calibers in two guns would be pretty sweet! Of course, Im still waiting on the 22LR/ .50 cal convertible, lmao!

I picked up an Old Mod. .41mag for 350.00 , it has become my favorite handgun, hands down. Great trigger and dead nuts accurate. I can shoot it one-handed all day long or until I run out of ammo. I did change to thicker grips for better control. Every person at the range that has tried it, to a person, says the same thing " I gotta get one of these!"

Three calibers? Let's see: .38 Short Colt, .38 Long Colt, .38 Special, .357 Magnum, 9mm Parabellum, 9mm Glisenti. That makes SIX! O.K., so that's stretching it a little, and some of those don't weight down too many dealer's shelves.

One I was invited for a hunt using black powder only. I didn't have a cap-and-ball revolver, but demonstrated to the property owner that my Ruger .357 loaded with .38 Short Colt cartridges was no more of a threat than the front-loaders. He allowed me to hunt.
