what's the difference between the 3 screw Blackhawks and the earlier/later ones?

The early model Blackhawks had 3 screws in the frame, Fred - later models only 2. Also, the early version didn't have the safety bar that blocks the hammer in case of accidental hammer fall. Ruger offers a kit that they will install on the older models, free of charge, to convert them to the new configuration. Lots of us owners of the older, sans safety bar models want to keep them that way for collector value. We just make sure to only load five chambers and let the hammer rest on the firing pin at the empty chamber when carrying.

Mine is a .41 Mag, which I much prefer over a .44 Mag.
