I have a survival knife that holds 4 bullets in the sheath.

I had inserted a LIVE 44 magnum round into the compartment FACE UP.

Why, because it was making noise shaking around in case you may be wondering.

OK so know the live round is stuck.

So HOW would be the best way to remove the live round, and keep the sheath in tact?

Considering the round would be facing in the same direction (UP towards my hand if I try to remove it.

I can fit an L shaped ALLEN KEY beneath it, but BEFORE I risk blowing my arm and face off, I thought I would get some feedback, and this appears to be a knowledgeable board.

I am just guessing a pair of pliers and grab the bullet and begin working it out. Just don't try to put anything under it and the primer will be fine. If it is tight in the sheath it could be dangerous. Pics would help.

I'm having a hard time visualizing the scene of the mishap and just how and where the cartridge was stuck.

I will let the pro's tell you what it is worth. I have that same gun and it is accurate and fun to shoot.

Re: Ruger New Model Blackhawk .44 Magnum

I would not sell it, so it doesn't matter
what the value is.
I will say $500-$600 and you may get an
extra $100 these days.....
It's not really that special to have the engraving
on this gun.....it's a standard model 00867-465
blued gun......worth way more to keep and shoot
than to sell because it has a somewhat 'commemorative
value' just because it denotes the year .44 came to be.
I am no 'special' collector....so this is just my opinion.....
I have a couple of them and I shoot them. The value
is in the sweetness of the gun in hand. I load them hot
and heavy, and this Ruger takes ALL I give it, and that is
the value.....make sense to you ?
It is also the reason I have so many like it......
I test my reloads in these Ruger SA's before I ever attempt
firing the same rounds in my others.[S&W,Taurus,Uberti, Heritage,...etc]
I do test in my T/C barrels as well, but hold the same value of
safety between them.

I still would like to see pics.....

I had two .243's stuck in my .22 model 317
and was wondering if it was similar.
A friend of mine had a bear grylls stuck in an old hickory
but he said his wife finally freed it.

Re: Ruger New Model Blackhawk .44 Magnum

I have two others, one is scoped, and by far the most fun to shoot. This one appears to be new and only test shot.

When you say test for reloads, do you mean that after you make your own rounds, these revolvers are the ones you test. Why is this? Is it because the back of the gun will not blow off or something in case you packed too much powder into the brass? :D

Re: Ruger New Model Blackhawk .44 Magnum

Rugers are hell-for-strong. If he makes a - 45 Colt, for example - load that is an overload, and shoots it in a Blackhawk, it will just kick the hell out of him. Then he can think, "Hmmm. Probably need to not load them THAT hot anymore". If he had shot them in his Uberti, it could have damaged the gun.

Rugers can be damaged. It just takes being really really stupid.

Curious, though. You have that gun's picture in two threads, and in one of 'em the gun is listed on the evil auction site. Is it your gun, or one you are thinking about buying?

While I agree Ruger makes strong revolvers it is wrong to say it as you have above. Even the Super Blackhawks can be damaged, even from improper reloading. And the new Ruger Vaquero are much weaker, made for light loads in Cowboy shooting games.

You made it sound as if every Ruger revolver is so strong that it's almost impossible for them to blow, not true at all.

I would hate for a novice to read what you said and then be harmed.
Here's some talk and pictures about a guy that thought his Ruger could handle his "overloads".

Thanks for the additional perspective.

It appears intuitive judgement and heuristics must be well understood in these matters. Heuristic means to discover through trial and error. when heuristics fail, our judgement suffers. Heuristic judgments tend to err in uncertain situations.

The good news is that heuristic judgment tends to err in a consistent manner. The judgments are biased, meaning, wrong in the same way over and over again. This makes it possible to predict when judgments may fail and how.

I value the experience and knowledge this forum provides. Good forums are hard to find, I am blessed to have found this one relative to firearms.

And there you see. A certain auction site is not allowed to be mentioned. If you do, it says **********. If you try to bypass the automatic changing to *****, they get mad at you. That's fine. Their board, so their rules. So I just call it the evil gun auction site. Occasionally I say the gun auction site that must not be named :), but that takes more typing.

I said "Blackhawk". I did not say "New Blackhawk". They are two totally different guns. That's first.

Second, the New Blackhawk and the New Vaquero are not "made for light loads in Cowboy shooting games". They are normal strength 45 Colt revolvers, for normal strength 45 Colt loads. Just as strong as a Colt or a Smith and Wesson or an Uberti. Someone reading your post could easily take it to mean that putting normal factory ammo in the gun will cause a KA-BOOM.

You might want to consider responding to what I write, and not what you think I mean.
