    Post pics of your single actions. My other thread got a few nice pics and I know there are more guys here that shoot them. Here's the only one I've got.

    Beautiful Super Blackhawk. Here's my Bowen customized Blackhawk .45LC. Everything about the revolver is slick--the grips finally fit the grip frame, which now fits the frame. The action is smooth as glass, and the trigger is like breaking a small glass rod. Since the standard Ruger rear sight has been replaced with Bowen's Rough Country rear sight, the sights are now dead on at 25 yards--benched with CAS 250gn .45LC loads. Still breaking in the revolver, but the desired packing load will be the Cor-Bon 200gn +P load once that's done.

    Only 1 so far. A Ruger Single Six Convertible. Would like to add a .357 and .44 to the family.

    Franks, that is a beautiful pistol!

    sinzitu, my dad has one just like that and it is a hoot to shoot. It's a shame you can't get the adjustable sights and rosewood grips in a blue gun anymore. The plastic grips they have now are terrible.

    Thanks muchly. When I queried Bowen Classic Arms about replacement rosewood grips, I was told to keep the black plastic (hard rubber?) as once properly fitted with a new grip frame would really set off the work done. Bowen was correct, in my humble opinion. I've recently purchased Ruger's New Model Flat Top .44 Special in 5.5 inch barrel length, and I may be having the Bowen custom work done to it as well. I've replaced the black plastic grips on it with Ruger's checkered rosewood. Now that looks much nicer with that gun. Haven't shot the little gun yet (it is indeed smaller than the .45LC NM Blackhawk). It's a slick looking piece.

    Gee! I thought this was the REVOLVER thread. But, that's certainly a nice looking Browning HP.

    Doesn't that qualify as a single action?
    The trigger won't make the hammer go back. :D

    I guess it does qualify but it wasn't what I had in mind. Nice piece though.

    Certainly a single action semi-automatic pistol, but not a SINGLE ACTION REVOLVER. Could you see the difference between your pistol and our REVOLVERS?

    mikecu I think your SA is beautiful.....but then I'm biased.

    I already posted my .44 Mag SB in another thread but here is my .45 Colt Blackhawk.

    I also have the Single-Six convertible and for those don't-care-if-it-gets-scratched days, a Heritage convertible. I can post pictures of these but they're in the safe and "she" is x-mas decorating downstairs so I figure it's safer up here!

    Well AH-1,

    Those are some very nice revolvers. I'm a little jealous of your Ruger Bisley. Did you shorten the barrel, or did you have a custom gunsmith do the work for you. That is one sweet looking piece. BTW, I'm a Viet Vet, and greatly admire those AH-1 drivers who saved my ass more than a few times. If you're one of those guys--crew chief included, I salute you...

    accusport had 500 of these built by ruger in SS and with a 5 1/2 barrel.

    I was aircraft weapons/crew chief/spark chaser/avoinics then T.I. on the snakes and the apache when I retired.
    73-94

    wes in MT made me a holster/ammo dump for hog hunting.finding a holster for a 5 1/2 bisley isn't easy :)

    Can't hardly resist posting a few pictures in this category (smile). Next to N-framed S&Ws I love Flat-top, 3-screw Rugers for Single Actions and have been lucky enough to acquire a few. My favorites are the Blackhawk 44s.

    This is a fairly rare 7-1/2". If my information is correct there were only 750 made in this barrel length.
    [​IMG]

    Next is my 4 digit 6-1/2". It has the thin, curved trigger and non-collard base pin of the earlier models and the plastic stocks.
    [​IMG]

    The last one is a semi-custom 44 Blackhawk that I (and others) think Ruger should have offered. I bought one that had been mistreated and abused and made it into the gun Ruger should have added to their Flat-tops back in the late '50s and through the 1960s.

    I have two Flat-top 357s but the board won't let me post 5 pictures and I couldn't decide which one to leave out (LOL).
