By now, most you folks probably know about the limited run of SS Bisley Blackhawks that is all a-buzz on the internet. I'm curious if this pistola would be a good investment piece - buy now to sell at a profit later.
Me thinks this will be a standard menu item with Ruger in the near future. I called the sales rep to find out the skinny on the limited run. Acusport has a 1 year exclusive contract to produce the 5.5" SS Bisley Blackhawk. Because of the overwhelming positive response, Acusport has informed Ruger that they will schedule another run in the fall. When I pressed, the Ruger sales rep stated that if the second run is as favorable as the first run (which it will be), they will more than likely offer the pistol as a catalog item.
How long has it taken Ruger to figure out that the shooting public want a Stainless Bisley Blackhawk?<!--emo&???--><img src="http://beartoothbullets.com/iB_html/non-cgi/emoticons/confused.gif" border="0" valign="absmiddle" alt='???'><!--endemo--> We've been putting Bisley Vaquero Grips on Standard Stainless Blackhawks ever since the Vaquero went stainless with the Bisley grip... seems the boys in marketing at Ruger are a little slow on the uptake!
I'm glad to see that they are finally catching on! Next, if they could just figure out how to screw on something other than just 7.5" barrels at the factory!
Ya know, gun shops that carry 5.5" SS 45 Colt Bisleys within driving driving distance during one's lunch break can be a dangerous thing!
OK - so I'm weak. I admit it. I just had ta'. But the price was right (踥.00) She balances beautifully and just feels so darn good in the hand. This is EXACTLY what I was looking for back in January of this year.
Last Fall I got a pre-own Ruger Super Blackhawk in Stainless Steel with a Bisley grip, I call it a Super-Bisley. It has a 5.5" barrel, Bisley trigger with the Super Blackhawk hammer. The only complaint I have is when you go to firelapping the barrel. Marshall is not kidding when he states in his Technical Guide that "some magnum stainless barrels going 200 or more rounds to get the thread choke out" I had 234 rounds. Other than that its a great handgun!
