    I feel like I should hit the casino, I couldn't believe my luck! I saw this Ruger New Model Blackhawk .45 today and I thought there must be some mistake on the price tag, it was marked at $200!:what: Well I couldn't get my wallet out any faster and started the paperwork.

    Apparently the gun was put on consignment by someone earlier that day and I just consider myself lucky that I spotted it before anyone else did. I asked the clerk if the guy made a mistake pricing it so low and the clerk told me that the guy was aware he was pricing it low and just needed some fast cash. The gun is in near mint condition and even came with a nifty holster!

    Wait a minute...didn't you just pick up that sweet looking Colt DS for $400 and now a very pristine Blackhawk for $200??? What's next for the Trifecta; a mint condition Registered Magnum for a $100 because the gunshop owner knows that nobody buys those old outdated revolvers anymore!!!

    I think you should move to Vegas with the luck you're having finding these incredible deals.

    Great deal!
    And I was thinking my deal was the steal of the century: Ruger Super Blackhawk Stainless with 3.75" barrel and unfluted cylinder.....for: $475.

    but nah, you got the deal to outlive all deals!:what:

    Me too

    On my birthday several years ago I bought a .45 Ruger Blackhawk with the 5.5 inch barrel for $200 and I thought I stole it as well. It is my favorite handgun to shoot, but the ammo is expensive. I had a simply rugged holster made for it and it is a good combo.

    The holster looks like a Triple K and not worth a whole lot. . .however. GREAT deal on the Blackhawk!

    I dont do single actions but I sure would start if I could get in on the game on a nice revolver like that for that price. Good score.

    WOW $200. Original nice walnut grips too. Now you'll need a matching lever gun.

    No, Bannockburn, I think Mr. Williams will find a 6" Colt Diamondback in .22 LR for $800. In other words, he will find a gun that I want for a phenomenal price.

    You fairly well stole that gun. It looks great!

    Congratulations. You will be grinning about that deal for years to come.


    For that price, I would have considered buying - and I have never owned a .45-anything.
