    Years ago I remember Ruger built a handgun that mostly resembled a SA. But, it loaded only a single round, I think the caliber was something like .256. Do any of you recall such a pistol? Have you ever seen one of these? What price do they command today?
    Thank you

    Ruger Hawkeye

    The Ruger Hawkeye was a single-shot pistol chambered for the .256 Winchester Magnum cartridge, produced by Sturm, Ruger in the 1960s. It was built on the same frame as the Ruger Blackhawk, but rather than having a rotating cylinder like a standard revolver, it featured a swiveling breechblock which allowed an individual round to be loaded and sealed into the frame.
    The pistol was not a commercial success, and was discontinued after a short run.
