    Ruger new model Blackhawk question

    I inherited a few single actions from my grandfather. Iíve always enjoyed the 4 5/8 barrel vs the 7.5. Given that Iím not interested in ever selling these, is there a gunsmith that you would recommend to perform the surgery?

    You might call Ruger and see if they will do it.

    I used to have the same opinion about the longer barrels on single actions, that I bought a beater Blackhawk for my son in 41 mag to hunt with. It is a blast to shoot, especially at longer ranges.

    I still love 4-5" revolvers, but I'd shoot your mid-length before you chop it.

    I actually have a 41 Blackhawk wih the 5.5 inch barrel. I have had four that length. I also have a 44 with 7.5 inch. I plan on adding a 7.5 inch 41 as well. But I would like a shorter 41 also.

    Costs you more in gun smiting than a used revolver will cost.
