    The "best" way to hold your revolver is the one that gives you the most pleasure and best accuracy.

    You are allowed, no, encouraged, to make that determination for yourself.

    Of course, this will require a lot of shooting. Darn. ;)

    I love the look of the wooden grips, but for comfort when shooting I prefer my Pachmayr grips.

    Contact Ruger about Stainless Blackhawk front sight blades, may require some fitting and drilling the hole for the pin. Also may have to be adjusted down by filing the top till height desired for distance sighted in for.

    Jumping in with both feet, or revolvers...and it looks like conversion cylinders, too? Congratulations, I admire your commitment.

    Now go get them dirty!! :thumbup:

    Has anyone had experience with Slix Shot nipples in the ROA?
    (please only give first hand experience)

    Most Ruger original factory nipples work fine, but I ran into some replacement Ruger nipples that were unreliable. So I bought both Treso and Slix Shot nipples for my Old Armies. I preferred the Tresos but unfortunately they are no longer being made. When I wear my Treso nipples out I will probably try another set of Slix. My first Slix nipples were early production and it is my understanding they are better now. Slix Shot nipples are popular with cowboy action shooters who use open top Colt replicas, so if your factory nipples are causing problems then I would certainly try a set of them.

    These came with the ROA's when I bought them. They are stamped inside "Ruger Blackhawk" and there is also a 2.
    Think I'm right in saying this type is also called the Presentation style.

    Sir,

    I was looking for a longer loading ram and found the Slix Shot site. I ordered a ram, and the nipples.

    The ram worked great, and the nipples were OK as well. Other than needing a special tool to screw then in and out, they were the equal of the factory nipples. I could tell no difference - except that they were a bit harder to keep clean.

    I pulled them out and replaced the factory nipples. If I ever wear the factory parts out I will be happy to use the Slix Shot nipples.

    I hope to work at wearing them out a bit quicker now that I am retired full time, but see no wear on the factory set thus far, after about 700 shots. I shoot mostly 17 grains of APP 3F and Hornady round balls with wonderwads and no lube, CCI #11 caps.
