You can buy a rail mount that doesn't involve drilling. I'll try to find a link for ya.

I've considered getting one of these several times. I'd definitely prefer using this method over drilling and tapping. One of the best parts if the Blackhawk/Super blackhawk is the over-built, strong frame. I wouldn't dream of weakening that frame.

Do you normally run magnums or specials through yours?

Are you looking to mount a scope or a red dot? Make sure that whichever you decide to mount can take the recoil of a .44!

For real. I'd love to kill a deer with a revolver! That and a spear is about the only way I've not killed one.

Gumpy, there are stabbing spears (good for boars) and throwing spears. Seems like for a deer you may need an axlotl (to get the distance). I get the impression that accuracy is a problem - but you could practice.

:cool:

:p
