    Went looking for one of these a few yrs back and finally located it.

    This is one gun I always enjoy shooting. And since my carry is a .45ACP I went got a carry holster for the Vaquero, also.

    Now that I've seen those Colts, I guess I'll be adding one or more of those to the collection. Those are sweet!

    Stealthcarry, a 1911 magazine (although, I suppose Glock or Sig, or somebody else's would work) makes a great way to carry spare ammo for a single action 45 ACP. After punching out all the empties, just stick the mag up to the loading gate and thumb 'em in.

    Hi , I am interested in getting a .45 acp cylinder for my .45 LC Ruger Blackhawk, trouble is I did not purchase the convertible model when I bought the revolver. Is it affordable or even possible to buy a .45 acp cylinder for my Blackhawk years after I got the gun? Thanks for your thoughts.

    If you look on the Ruger Forum Classifieds they show up there now and then or you could sign up and do a Want To Buy.
    You really should check your cylinder on the lengths to make sure you get a match but most times more than often they will fit right in. Just make sure you get the correct one for your gun New Model or Old Model.
