    Well, I've been thinking about one of these for awhile. It's a Ruger Blackhawk Convertible in .45 Colt, with an auxiliary cylinder in .45 ACP. I just started loading .45 Colt a couple of months ago, and thought the .45 ACP cylinder might come in handy someday. It's blue with the 5-1/2" barrel, was manufactured in 2003, has the factory wooden grips, and was advertised as being in 99% condition. I should pick it up from my local gun pusher late next week. Here's the mandatory photo (from Gunbroker):

    So, for $425 plus shipping, was I sorely abused or did I make out OK? Be gentle, this economy's getting to my nerves... :eek:

    I bought the non-convertible 45 colt blackhawk with 7.5" barrel and plastic grips for right at 400. Yours is a convertible, and has wood grips, you did ok.

    I would give that for it. If you decide you're not satisfied and want to sell send me a PM.

    New convertables are priced for around $625 in my area. So it sounds like you got a pretty good deal for the condition its in.

    With the cylinder? I think you did great. It's a hell of a gun, built like a tank, will outlast you, and shoots two different rounds... what's not to like?

    $625 is REALLY high for a new one. I was looking at the .357/9mm convertable and the .45LC/.45ACP last week. The .45 was marked $550 and I could have walked out with it for $565 including the tax. The .357 was abit less IIRC.

    I just gave $525 for a new blue .357/.38/9mm with the 6 1/2" barrel. You did good. Fun times ahead...

    Thanks guys, you've put my mind at ease! I'll get some better photos posted once she gets here and I can get her all spiffed up.
