the new addition arrived

I traded a NIB 450 Bushy upper straight up for this NIB 4 5/8in Super Blackhawk in .44 magnum. Shot a few rds in the yard and now to the gunsmith for the custom work.

I am going to have the corners of the grip frame rounded off, and possibly bead blasted.

Those things just look plain mean with the non-fluted cylinder. Excellent trade in my opinion.

Very nice gun. I love the finish, the unfluted cylinder, and it's the perfect barrell length. Good trade!

I love Rugers. That's all I own. I'm not yet into the single-actions but give it time.
