Let's start a Super Blackhawk love page.
I have not taken any game with it yet, but plan to remedy that.
I don't think there are any real mechanical or structural differences. The hammer and grip frame fit on any Blackhawk model. On the right is an old model Single Six, middle is a NM Blackhawk, left is a NM Super Blackhawk.
The BH's come with aluminum grip frames to reduce cost and weight while the long-barrel SBH's come with steel grip frames to counter-weigh the longer barrels and reduce felt recoil. I have seen SBH hammers and steel grip frames on standard NM Blackhawks and I have also seen aluminum Bisley grip frames and Bisley hammers on NM Super Blackhawks. That latter combo is a little weird to me but, to each their own.
Just this one. Modified in my basement.
No game taken.
Hmmm my BH is highly polished stainless. I wonder if the grip is Al or SS. Never noticed a different color between frame and grip.
Assuming your BH is a blued model (I don't believe I've ever seen a stainless .41 mag version) the grip frame is indeed aluminum alloy. The other major difference is the hammer design.
Above is my SBH, after the Bisley grip frame installation, but without the standard BH hammer and Power Custom main pin it now has.
Below is my .41 Mag BH, using the stock grip frame and hammer from from the SBH above it.
It's my favorite handgun.
I have a Super BlackHawk in .44Magnum.
Round count certainly in the thousands and thousands...
Also have a Super BlackHawk Hunter in .45Colt. Very nice revolver and accurate.
