Description

Classic New Model Blackhawk with blued finish in five calibers and four barrel lengths. Classic Lines, Classic Feel, Modern Features. The Ruger® New Model Blackhawk® is the most advanced single-action revolver ever made. While retaining the solid frame, feel and comfortable grip of the classic single-actions, they feature Ruger’s patented transfer bar ignition system with loading gate interlock, an all-coil spring mechanism, adjustable sights, and frame-mounted firing pin. New Model Blackhawk revolvers have earned a reputation as the best value on the market due to their durability and affordability.

Convertible models come equipped with an extra cylinder and are popular with shooters who appreciate the classic single-action revolver but opt for the versatility of being able to use more than one caliber in their handgun. With its interchangeable cylinder, Convertible models can be easily converted from one caliber to another without the use of tools. This versatility allows avid shooters of autoloading pistols to enjoy shooting a classic American single-action sidearm with their favorite pistol cartridge.

    I own two, a1966 three screw and 1974 new model. The lighter three screw is my field piece. Seems the early models are made better. Wish Ruger would offer a 7 1/2 inch .357 barrel. Blackhawks are very accurate, reliable ...revolvers. I will not part with my pair. more

    Every time I take this single action masterpiece out to the range I have a big smile on my face. No, it is not as sophisticated as other revolvers and semi-automatics. But it will shoot anything you give it, has a great ...trigger and is solid as a rock. And if you run out of ammo, you can throw it at your adversary. more

    I own two Blackhawks In 357 mag. These guns are as accurate as my top end 1911's. And at half the price. Quality gun and a good value.

    When the ammo shortage was on, the 45acp was all I could find, great gun.

    My interest in these guns arose after the purchase of an 1881 Colt .45 SAA Revolver (because my wife wanted me to have a "cowboy" gun). When I discovered that the Ruger Blackhawk was the descendant of the cowboy gun, my ...interest was piqued. Up to that point, I hadn't considered a .45 because most of them were too big for my hand. But shortly after that, I found mine at a gun show, reasonably priced and a good fit for my hand. It was the stainless .45ACP/.45Colt (engraved) convertible with Bisley black laminate grips, a dealers exclusive through Williams Shooters Supply. As a bonus, I discovered that a special round was developed for the Ruger Blackhawk. This round never made it to market, because it would destroy most guns. That led to the development of the Ruger .44 magnum which uses that very round in a .44 mag. However, you can load that round in the .45 Blackhawk, as shown in the Blackhawk & T/C Contender section of the Nosler manual. I wouldn't want to shoot that all the time, but I'm looking forward to loading a few rounds to those specs just to try it out. I've shot about 200 rounds through this revolver over the last couple weeks and it is very accurate. I definitely don't want to put a scope on a cowboy gun, but I have ordered the Hi Viz front sight for it. But that's my old eyes--not an issue with the gun. more

    I've owned numerous Ruger Blackhawks and Single Six guns, and I swear by Ruger. These must be the strongest revolvers made because they seem to be indestructable. They shoot extremely accurate and the fit/finish is excel...lent. The Blackhawks, like the Ruger rifles and shotguns, are unsurpassed quality at reasonable prices. more
