Ruger new model blackhawk
Anybody have any experience with one? Always liked single action revolvers and like the idea I don't need a new cartridge, I have and m1 carbine, and think 30 carbine would be an interesting round for a pistol.

I have a couple in .357. The .30 Carbine model would be awesome to add to the safe.

I've never heard anything negative about them, anything you've run into?

Nothing wrong with a Ruger Blackhawk. I've never had one in the .30 carbine caliber, but a friend of mine has one and he likes. it. I think the .30 carbine is more suited to a pistol caliber than a rifle, frankly.

Built like a tank and your great, great grandchildren will be shooting it.

Blackhawks in 30 carbine are fun, but LOUD! I used to shoot steel with one. I loved it!

If you get a single action revolver you might decide to try cowboy action shooting (I'd recommend it). A drawback to the .30 Carbine chambering is that it doesn't meet the SASS minimum of .32 caliber.

A .357 is the cheapest to shoot. The larger calibers have their own charm. I am particularly partial to the "Flattop" Blackhawk in .44 Special.

Thanks guys good to hear you like them.

I never thought about competition shooting, something to consider. Thanks!

As far as ammo prices .357 and .30 carbine are about the same in my area.

I have one in .357... It's one of my favorites...

I had a .30 Carbine built on a Ruger BH .45 frame. It has Micro Target sights and all parts are hand fitted. It is deadly accurate to 100 yards with cast bullets.:)
