    Ruger haters ignore - New Blackhawk Bisley 45Colt

    I know some of you have a hate on for Ruger, so a warning in the title. Myself, I always saw Ruger as a maker of dependable if not remarkable firearms, and I like'em. Recently I picked up a stainless new Vaquero in 357 and Bisley trim, and that gun is just downright handsome looking. It feels amazing in the hand and shoots great. A guy at the range commented that the Bisley grip really handles recoil well. We are about to find out! This is a man's gun, a massive thing with a heavy frame and a 7.5 inch barrel. Adjustable sights. Personally I think I won the lottery on the grips too, with some nice grain. Can't wait to get this thing to the range. My only gun with a non-fluted cylinder. Nice roll marked scenes on it.

    It's nice that Ruger, and S&W, are evolving the single action revolver instead of just making historical pieces.

    Very nice find. After not owning a .45 Colt for years, (sticking with my .357's and .44's) I bought a convertible model Blackhawk with a .45 ACP cylinder and it was so accurate and fun to shoot I went looking for a Smith 25 in the older caliber and am very happy. Bet you are going to enjoy your new Ruger.

    Very Cool! I only have 4 Ruger handguns, an SP101, SR9c, LCP and SR22 and I think they are well made, dependable guns at a good price

    Not a Ruger 'hater'. I don't hate anyone or anything. I do dislike earlier Ruger semi auto pistols because they are a big PITA to take down and I dislike the Ruger No.1 Rifle because of it's inherent inaccuracy that can be fixed but should have never been sold in the configuration it is.

    I own 3 of them, 2 match pistols (heavily reworked) and a Mini too.

    I bought a .45 LC Bisley Blackhawk when they first came out in 1989. You're going to love that gun, it's a gentle giant to shoot with standard loads, and it can also easily rock and roll with souped up .45 LC hand loads.

    I used mine in Cowboy Action shooting matches for years until I decided to switch to a shorter barrel Blackhawk that I fitted with a Bisley hammer to work in a regular grip frame.

    That's become my standard upgrade for all of my non-Bisley Blackhawks, even an Old Model 3-screw Blackhawk (the one below the Bisley). I lucked out and got one of the last remaining Bisley hammers made and sold by Clements Custom Guns for an Old Model Blackhawk, as they have been discontinued by Clements.

    I have more than one Ruger. In fact probably more than I need. Yours is a great looking gun. I bet it shoots great. I could never get used to the look of the Bisley grip. Mine are the Vaquero.
