    This Super Blackhawk is another in my stable, with a brass grip frame and walnut grips by Cary Chapman. In the summer of 1981 I killed a groundhog at 110 yards with this gun, the best field shot I think I ever made.

    This gun also stands at about 17,000 round fired.

    Love the look of brass on SA's
    Not fond of un-fluted clys (just looks)

    Well, Ole Hoss, maybe you'd like this one a little better. No brass, but three screw, 4 5/8" barrel and flutes on the cylinder. Alas, its no magnum, just a plain ol' .44 Special.

    As to 7 1/2" barrel, I don't believe I could have made that shot with a shorter barrel. Better sight picture, and my bullet left the muzzle at a clocked 1400 fps.

    P.S. I do believe you've been around about as long as I have!
