Ruger Blackhawk Bisley

I recently had the opportunity to buy this .357 caliber Blackhawk for $380 from a friend. That seem to be a fair price? Took it to the range today and it shot really smooth!

Nice! What length barrel is that?

From the frame to the end of the barrel is 6.75"

They have a 7 1/2" barrel.
I have one in 45LC.I was looking for a Vaquero Bisley,but couldn't find one a few years ago,so I bought the Blackhawk version.
It shoots really nice.

Good to know. I wasn't sure how to figure the length, thanks!
It's an awesome shooter, put a few firey 357 loads through her and she took it like a champ and was begging for more. ;)

Thank you, Sir! I'm quite pleased with it.

Is that a true single-action that you can safely load six into?

Yes it is. I heart my Ruger Bisley. 44 mag, cut to 5" and parkerized. Only way to beat it for an Alaskan carry gun is to have a .475 Linebaugh, but I just can't afford it. Accepting donations at blah, blah, blah...;)

You got ripped off, that thing is junk!

I'll buy it from you for $400.

Nice snag, I can't believe anyone that feels a Bisley frame would ever want to shoot a Ruger S/A again.

I am lusting after a 5 1'2" barrel stainless Ruger Bisley in 45 Colt.
Good Shooting
