Three Screw Ruger Blackhawk Circa 1972 For $350?

Would this be considered a good deal? Finish be damned I will just have it factory reblued if it needs it.

The price sounds right IF:

Condition? Blue remaining, condition of the grips, etc.

Does the gun have the transfer bar conversion installed? If so, are original parts included?

If the gun has had the factory update, and the original parts are not included, probably deduct about $100~$150.

Unconverted Ruger Blackhawks bring the premium price, and box, instruction booklet, etc. all add to the value for collectors.

I'm not a collector, but value unconverted Rugers. A .357 Blackhawk in good condition I would pay $350, less for .44 or .45s, as the smaller frame of the .357 is more highly prized.

And, how badly do you want the gun?

Sorry guys. A little more info:

.357 mag, he says "pristine" condition, very low round count, and unconverted.

That price is good. Not a home run steal, but if it is in "prestine" condition and you want it I would jump on it
