I have three Ruger convertibles also. I have a Single Six convertible and two Blackhawks. The Blackhawks are a .45 Colt/.45 ACP and a 10mm auto/.38-40.

I have often thought it would be nice to have a .40 S&W cylinder fitted to the 10 mm/.38-40. Would Ruger do something like that? What is everyone's opinion on doing that? I don't reload so would probably shoot it a lot more as .40 S&W is cheaper than either of the other two.

I would be happy to have a NMBH in 10mm and 38-40. They have made .40 S&W cylinders for Vaqueros, as I recall. You could see if Ruger would fit one to your gun. I doubt it though. Custom cylinders could be made, but would probably be expensive. I have a 4" S&W 610 that allows me to shoot 10mm with or without clips, and .40 S&W with clips. Very accurate with 10mm. Not quite as good with .40, but I haven't tested it enough yet.
