what would a used blackhawk in good cond. be worth? It is a .357 6 1/2" barrel. I have not seen the gun yet, but it is supposed to be in very good cond. thanks, chuck-ia

I was in a shop this weekend that had a very nice looking blued .357 with 4-5/8" barrel on consignment for $289. It felt nice and tight and looked mint except for some small reddish scuffs on the outside of the cylinder - not sure exactly what they were. If I didn't have my heart set on a stainless version of that same gun, I would have snapped it up.

Actually, now that I think about it, I may go back and get it.

2-3 hundred depending on condition here in Utah.

well, if it's an old model "Flat-top" then they will want a fortune for it - probably $500++ :(

Reason for that (other than collector's item) is that AFAIK all the new model .357 BHs are built on the same frame and cylinder diameter as the .44 magnum and are exceedingly heavy for that caliber (somebody correct me if I am wrong...)

Yeah, the .357 is now made on the .44 mag frame. I have small hands and I was afraid it wouldn't feel right, but that wasn't the case - the grips were fine. I read a review of the 50th anniversary .357 Blackhawk, which WAS made on the "old" smaller-frame, and I think I remember that it wasn't much lighter than the current model (a couple of ounces?)

So then why not just get the BH in .44 mag ... ? :confused:

I don't see the point in carrying a big heavy sixgun in a medium caliber.

That said, I would love to have a single action .357 that was sized about like a K-frame ;)
