    I bought a Ruger Blackhawk 3 screw at the gunshow today and it has a instinctive rear sight meaning filled in for quick draw. I am supposing by factory b/c only a few people can do this type of work and make it fit this good. It has a bead front sight and the caliber is 357. the frame, reciever and ejector housing are nickel but the cylinder and barrel are blue, I can tell this is the original barrel mainly because the insignia is on the reciever and not on the barrel, the barrel reads sturm and ruger southport conn. If anyone can tell me something about this it would be excellent. Thanks.

    I can assure you Ruger never made a Blackhawk like that with a non-adjustable rear & bead front sight!

    I can only guess someone had a good gunsmith convert it for quick-draw work, or cowboy action shooting before the Vaquero became available.

    Did they ever finish a Blackhawk in nickel?

    Not at the factory.

    Sounds like he bought someone's "quick draw" special made before the Vaquero was born.

    Well it isnt a bad looking piece. I got a pretty good bargain on it. So I guess I will be trying a couple of rounds in it tomm. Thanks for the replies.
