    This is a Ruger Blackhawk .357 magnum converted to 44 spl. My father bought it new and had the conversion done around mid 1970. The serial number is 30-85XXX. It was produced in 1971. It is very light weight because the grip frame and ejector housing are aluminum. It has had a full action job and back in the day my father cut the main spring back for a solid 3 lb pull. It is about as sweet as they come. It is accurate and fun to pack.

    Doggoned it Alpo, that's a Tammy doll. I take offense to people calling her Barbie. :D So does G.I. Joe. Don't you know your dolls? :D

    You bet i have a 3 screw 45 colt. With a 4 5/8" barrel made in 1971 you helped answer a question i had about the cylinder on rugerforums, and you told me about this site. So here i am. I sent you a bunch of pictures of it through email about two weeks ago. Its definitely the my most prized pistol. I will never part with it dad put up the cash for me so i could get it. Remember me now my friend.
