Ruger Blackhawk Convertible

What are Blackhawk 9mm/357s going for in your area?

I have no clue as to what they are worth. Internet values range wildly depending on how proud the owner is of them. I'm looking for used, don't see much point of buying new guns anymore given the quality control today.


Any insight is appreciated. I am in the market because they seem like a great addition for the woods and range.

I have one in 9/357 but looking for one with a longer barrel. Current one is 4 and 5/8 I believe.

In a free state, probably $350-450. For those stuck behind the iron curtain in Massachusetts, full blown retail for used guns that look like they've been buried in salt mud for 20 years. I have yet to run across a decent price around here on any used Rugers.

I just sold my 9mm/357 for $500 to a private party. I threw in a set of wood Ruger grips.

Have quite a few single actions with a 5 1/2" barrel but have always had a certain fondness for the look of a 4 5/8" barrel. Get whichever one feels the best in terms of balance and handling.

Around $400 down here. Depends on condition and barrel length.

I LOVE my 45/45 convertible! "They" claim that the 45acp "should" be less accurate out of it than 45LC, but I haven't noticed it. Plus, 45acp is a lot cheaper and easier to find. Mine has the 7.5" barrel and is one of the few handguns I shoot well at 25 yards.

We do need pictures - thanks Dakota.

I am leaning towards finding a 9/.357 , but either would be great. I would think any version and any barrel length would be hard to find used.

Either would be fun to shoot and handload rounds for.

My favorite Ruger.

Loaded with .45 acp it's quite manageable and fun. Loaded with Buffalo Bore Ruger-only 45 Colt, it probably exceeds many .44 magnums.

A magazine from a .45 pistol makes a nice speed loader, too.

I have a 357/9mm and really like it but my favorite by far is this 10mm-38/40 convertible. This is very accurate and it has the best bluing I have ever seen on a factory Ruger. If you see one, you want to consider it.
