I just purchased a Bisley Blackhawk in 44 Spl. The first time I pulled the basepin it came all the way out and had I not caught it, it would have ended up on the ground. I have a few Blackhawks and have had several more in the past but have never seen this. Is this the way it is designed? If so, any idea why?

The ejector pin is the only thing I know of that acts as a retainer to keep the base pin from coming out completely. So unless you happen to have a very oddly shaped ejector pin I can't see how it would come out.

I believe the .44 Special has the shorter frame and a shorter cylinder base pin. Where the longer cylinder base pin of the larger .44 Mag frame is trapped by the ejector button, the shorter pin of the .44 Special isn’t. I noticed that with my wife's 50th Anniversary .357 mag Blackhawks.

Correct, the shorter frames have them. My wife's flattop .357 is the same way and I'm pretty sure my single-sixes are too.

Like a colt in that respect.
