Default Ruger Blackhawk

Finally got with the times and bought a “new model” Blackhawk to replace my old 3 screw model .357 mag., it has been a great gun, indestructible, my old man gave it to me when I was 25, guess it’s time to pass it on to my son who is that age now, hate giving up good guns but it’s a family tradition.
Can’t wait to shoot the new one, I also like the idea of not having to carry it with an empty cylinder!

Thanks all, still haven’t shot it yet as I got sent to Louisiana for work (great food there)!
Home now, so maybe this weekend.
Have held it a lot and the stock grips are a little small for me, any suggestions………?

I have a set of Pachmyer(sp) Presentation grips for mine. Makes it very manageable even with heavy loads.

In my oppenion your son got the best gun. I love the old 3 screws. I have them in Bear Cat, Single Six, .357, 30 Carbine, 41 Mag, 44 mag, and 45 Colt. It took me alot of years to find these guns at a price I could afford and my wife and kids will get them WHEN I DIE. BUT, I`m sure your son love you more now.

They are great fun to shoot, and reliable as anything. I have one in .357 with a 9mm cylinder spare.

The best guns anyone can have in their collection are the ones passed down. I'm sure th enew owner will take great care and hopefully keep the tradition going.

As for your new one I"m sure you will like it. Those things are built like tanks and do their part when you do yours.
