What if's....don'tcha just love em  <!--emo&:)--><img src="http://beartoothbullets.com/iB_html/non-cgi/emoticons/smile.gif" border="0" valign="absmiddle" alt=':)'><!--endemo-->

How feasable (practical) would a 45 colt Blackhawk be with a 3.5" barrel?....trail gun use only....

I saw some pics at Gary Reeder's sight of a 3.5" dragon killer calibered Ruger with gun fighter grips.  It looks like it would be a joy to carry.  For &#36175 plus shipping, a standard Blackhawk could get the same treatment.

Suggestions/comments?

God Bless,

Alan

..."For your first venture into big bores you might be better off staying with the stock gun for awhile. "...

Again, sage advice  :^)

"Now I'll be the first to tell you that some modifications are helpful, neat, or just downright mandatory.  Just go slow"...

Money dictates that I'll go slow  :^)

MT - I'd really appreciate learning about these helpful and mandatory modifications.  Now from what I've read at various sites, in order to make a stock Ruger perform, I need to have  the pistol Taylor throated, the cylinder throats reamed to proper size, the cylinder to barrel gap adjustments made , and a complete action job.  If this is true, I need to spend an additional &#36275 on top of the purchase price of a new or used Blackhawk.

True, false or kinda?

God Bless,

Alan

"....find that you don't need to do anything to it. In reality you don't need to do anything. But that would take all the fun out of it, wouldn't it."

LOL!!  Yes....it would.

Perhaps you or Marshall could write a "Do-it yourownself" throat honing article for the Tips and Comments section?  I'd certainly like to learn about it.

God Bless,

Alan

PS:  How do I change my "newbie" handle to my name?
