    Hello Everyone,
    I am picking up a Ruger New Blackhawk 357/9mm convertible revolver on Friday and wanted to know if anyone has had any experience with any of the Ruger Blackhawks and can share your experience. Thank you for your help, Ed

    The Blackhawk is one of the strongest guns ever made. They are
    usually accurate as well. I haven't had as much luck in the
    accuracy department with the 9mm cylinder. I think because
    the barrel is .357/.358 diameter and the 9mm is .355/.356
    diameter.

    Ruger revolvers are so strong that there are heavy loads listed for their use only. With my old model I could shoot 4" groups at 75 yards(from a bench).

    I have one and love it. I purchased it because my daughter has a 9 mm and thought we could use the same ammo when we would shoot together. Used the 9 mm cylinder once and did not like the way it shot. But shoots .357 just fine. Now all you have to do is buy some fancy grips and enjoy! ;)

    The .45 Ruger Combo revolvers work very well. The .45 Colt and .45 ACP both being .452 bullets works well. It seems all other Combo guns vary too much in the throat and forcing cones and bores.:)

    I have many Ruger Blackhawks, Super Blackhawks, and a couple of Super Redhawks. I have never had a single issue with any of them. Back in 1991 I bought a .45 ACP / .45 Long Colt Convertible Blackhawk. With the .45 ACP cylinder it shoots tighter groups at 25 yards than my Colt Gold Cup does.
