Let me be the first to wish everyone a very Merry Christmas y'all.
Because....
This year at Christmas I'm going to award myself with a new Blackhawk. :D
Yep, got permission (and encouragement) from the boss.

My LGS tells me the model I'm after is out of stock from Williams Shooters Supply, the exclusive distributor for the SS 4.62" barrel .357 w/extra 9mm cylinder, model 0310.
A couple of online sellers I checked have them priced from $614 up to $780 for this model!!!
The LGS estimates they could sell it for around $700 when or if it becomes available.

These prices seem kinda high to me. Any online firearm sellers you guys know of that might do better?

Jerry,

His asking price isn't that bad really. You might save a few bucks by shipping one in from another state but having to go to a FFL dealer and paying his fee and then sales tax might come close to the $700 mark. Just MHO is all. In any case, good luck with it and let us know when you get it and how it shoots.

Oh Heck! :gaah:
Even though I told them the correct model number over the phone (0310) and said the word stainless...
There was a mix-up..... What they sold-ish me was a blued convertible model #0308. :brickwall:
Poor guy, I wouldn't even touch that blued Blackhawk.
No problem, he was happy to fix it by refunding the CC charge and we had a nice afternoon drive.

While searching for this gun, two shops (plus today's) said they couldn't do business with Williams.
One even asked me to let Williams know they would like to align with them. :dunno:

I'm thinking a call to Ruger, maybe Williams too, might be in order here.......

Did you ask him if he could order the 0310 and what it would cost?
I even told the guy it was model 0310. I guess when he saw it was the convertible he just connected it with his blued version without checking the model number.
What a bummer.

Yes, he suggested ordering it for me. That would be OK, anybody can have a mix up.
When I told him it was a Williams only model........ Oh, We can't do business with them, here's a refund.

Nice MagnumBlackhawk. I love that barrel length. It's what I chose for my SBH 44 Magnum.

I laid my Christmas present away this weekend as well. The Ruger Super Redhawk Alaskan in .454 Casull. I had planned on a Marlin 336 XLR or possibly a Ruger GSR, but she whom must be obeyed asked if it was really what I wanted because she had heard me talking to my psuedo SIL about the Bond Arms Snake Charmer. No says I, I want the Alaskan, but I have no real use for it. SWMBO says there is no reason to have a use if it makes me happy, so I put the down payment on it. I actually doubt I will get it out by Christmas, most likely will be my first firearm purchase in 2018.

I'm jealous Greg. I've wanted one of those for years. For no particular reason. They're just so expensive....

Nah, I have a 6.5" blued. The 4.62" barrel is much faster on the draw... (As if that's important, Lol).
I've owned a couple with the 4.62" barrel, both were blued, one was a convertible.
Traded them away for some unknown reason, always wanted another, stainless this time. ;)
But thanks for the reply 00b5 :tiphat:

Hi Big, That weight difference is between stainless and blued versions, not caliber.

If you plan on sticking around, you ought to do the introduction thing - so we have some notion who we're picking on.
