Default Hey

Just wanted to introduce myself, been a lurker on here for a while. Are there any subjects that we can't talk about on here?

Default Ruger .41 Mag

Recently purchased a 1968 blackhawk .41 mag at a gun show for $350. had a local smith tighten up a loose loading gate for $20. Otherwise, the pistol is in great shape. I believe you're in the ballpark with those prices. My only issue so far was at the range, shooting factory Rem 210 gr. rounds, the front of the trigger guard tried its best to gnaw off my trigger finger at the first knuckle. The 4 5\8 barrel proved to be very accurate until the pain and blood loss got the best of me. I've bought a nice pair of ivory grips from Boone Trading Co. that are thicker giving me a better grip. Until I master this fine pistol I'll be putting on a knuckle bandaid before I start banging away again. Buy it.

i have shot a few 41 mags years ago and like them. more power than the 357 mag, but near as much recoil as the 44 mag. Midway carries some ammo for the 41 mag. but if you decide to buy it, you might consider reloading ammo for it. a lot cheaper in the long run if you enjoy shooting it. i wouldn't mind buying one if i could find one at a decent price, as the 41 mag. revolver is on my wish list of guns. i'm not sure but $359 seems like a decent price for that pistol. might try and see if they will haggle on the price though.

Hi, I'm new to all this and I have just bought a Ruger Blackhawk 41 magnum. How do I determine if it's an old model or a new one??? Thanks for any help. Rick

take it to a gun dealer and have him check the serial number.

Default Blackhawk SN

You can check the serial number at the Ruger web site for mfg date. If your serial no. is not hyphenated, and if there are 3 screws beneath the loading gate, it's an old model. Which means there is no transfer bar so keep the hammer down on an empty cylinder.

I carried a Ruger .41. I liked the cartridge and reloaded for it. I got rid of the Ruger but have kept the reloading stuff so it's there when I get another .41. The Ruger was a 6.5 inch bbl... someone had put a rail on the barrel, I guess to mount a scope. Sold it to someone who thought he wanted it more than I did. Up-graded to .44s, including the .44 Special with some Keith-like loads.
