Thanks fellas, hate to break your heart but won't be giving any away. Had a Redhawk in 41 Mag, a Vaquero in 45 LC and a 22/45 stolen a while back.

Do you possibly have a 67 Stingray?

Nice gun collection too.
A lot of people like the old security, police and speed six's.

Hi-Po 350, I had to bore it 30 over and put flat tops in it to be able to run pump gas, had 11:1 compression out of the factory. The Security-Six is one made the 1st year of production, they're really good guns and hung around for quite a while until the beefer GP100 took it's place.

Back around 1975 I had a guy wanted to trade me his 69 roadster like yours only it was canary yellow. He wanted my 60 vette and a 61 vette I could have my hands on plus 4 grand. I told him he was nuts.
I got out of sports cars and into guns. I can have more guns than I could have cars. This Cobra RC was my last hot rod toy before I got into guns.

Cool car, you can get deep into your pockets on both cars and guns but there is no such thing as having too many of either one.

Nice Vette...back when they still looked like Covettes...unlike today's that look some kinda European thing.

Nice collection of Rugers too. I know Rugers pretty good, but what's the difference btw a BlackHawk and a Super Blackhawk? Is it that they only make Super BH's in 44 magnum whereas they only make Blackhawks in 45 Colt?
Or SBH can handle higher pressures?

Thanks Madtrapper, the Super Blackhawk was introduced in 1959 in response to complaints about recoil of the Blackhawk when chambered in .44 Mag. It has a larger and heavier frame, a more subtantial grip with squared off rear trigger guard, a non-fluted cylinder. It typically has a longer barrel and the ejector rod housings and grip frame are made of steel where they were aluminum on the Blackhawks. It has been chambered in 44 Mag, 454 Casull and 480 Ruger. The Blackhawk has been chambered in 30 carbinne, 32 H&R Mag / 32-20 Win, 327 Fed. Mag, 9mm / 357 Mag , 357 Mag, 357 Max, 10mm / 38-40, 41 Mag, 44 Special, 44-40 Win, 45 ACP / 45 Colt and 45 Colt.

Blackhawk, Super Blackhawk or Redhawk.

67stingray,
Did you mean to say Blackhawk instead of Redhawk when describing the above calibers and grip frames?

My memory ain't what it used to be so now I'm confused...

Anyway,
I call my Single Six a Blackhawk but I don't believe the box it came in designates it as such.
(The box is in the next room but I'm too lazy to go dig it out).

Here's a pic.
Super Blackhawk (.44 Magnum)
Blackhawk (.357 Magnum)
Single Six (.22 LR/Mag) ... (Looks like a Blackhawk to me). :dunno:

You're right MB I meant Blackhawk, thanks for the correction - there's no room in the conversation for a double action. The Blackhawk is just a centerfire version of the Single-Six, but was a new model on its own.

I corrected that Redhawk to Blackhawk in that post, just to help avoid any confusion to new readers.;):)

Thanks for the replies Stingray and Magnum. Non fluted and beefier stainless steel are the big diffs. So the Super BH would handle lot bigger pressures and you could shoot hot Buffalo or Garret loads whereas you couldn't in the Blackhawk I reckon?

This photo confuses me though. Says it's a SBH, but look at the trigger guard:
http://www.gunbroker.com/item/628184337 Maybe they recently started making the NEW Blackhawks with rounded guards too? I have a BlackHawk in 45 Colt. Same thing as this photo. Maybe people didn't like the squared off guard as much as the rounded.

I think the Super BH weighs around 46 oz, will have to look at what the BH weighs. Wish they'd put the weight in their ads. Well shoot, then I find this: Fluted. They shoulda kept them non fluted. http://www.gunbroker.com/item/626733719

Thanks again for taking the time to educate me. Em boys over at the S forum woulda told me to use the search function. :puker:

Did you hear they had a big cave in over in Bowling Green and the Vette Museum? Several classic Vettes fell down into the cave/hole underneath the museum. Not kidding! Don't know how long ago. Just saw it on some show not long ago.
