Need a barrel

Looking for a Ruger Super Blackhawk Barrel in 4.5/8 for a Old Model three screw 44 Mag . I think the old and new Super Blackhawk barrels interchange .
I have been watching the gun parts people for over a year with no luck . Also No luck on E-BAY or any other site .

Don't think Ruger ever made a short barrel for the SBH NM, or the OM.

Is it just me, or is the obvious solution just to cut the barrel back? or install an aftermarket?

au contraire! The Super Blackhawk has been made, and is still being made, with barrels of 4 5/8", 5 1/2" and 7 1/2" plus the 10 1/2" lengths.

The shorter barrels are made with steel XR-3RED grip frames and fluted or non-fluted cylinders. The 5 1/2" length comes with a fluted cylinder, the 4 5/8" non-fluted.

The Hunter model comes with the long grip of the Dragoon style, but has the rounded trigger guard.

Yes I have already cut some back trying not to cut one more .
I only shoot the three screw Super Blackhawk and really need to save the 7.1/2 barrel .
The one I am shooting now is shot out and needs replaced .
