    You can go to Ruger's web site for pictures.
    The Blackhawk and Super Blackhawk are single action and vary somewhat in apperance from one another.
    The Redhawk (and Super Redhawk) are double action with the Super Redhawk having an extended receiver.

    In general, "Super" means "beefed up" and "New model" means "transfer bar safety", when it comes to Ruger.

    Off the top of my head, the Single Six, Bearcat, Blackhawk and Vaquero are single action, while the Security Six, Redhawk,SP100,GP101 (or is is SP101/GP100?) are double action.
