    Go to the Ruger Firearms Company web site. There is a category where you can find your serial # and what year it fits in.

    One more thing. If you haven't done so already, you should read the manual for the safety warning specific to the Old Model Blackhawk.

    From the Ruger Blackhawk manual:

    There is an online manual available at Ruger's website, if you don't have one.

    If you decide to get the conversion done (if not done already) make sure you get the original lockwork back with the revolver. That increases its collectibility. Personally, I'd keep the revolver original.

    Keep it original.


    There's a reason why a box of shells is 5 shells to a row.
    Load 1, skip one, load 4.

    You stole it! As long as you handle it properly and never lower the hammer from the half cock notch it should never ring the cylinder.
