Well done. That one is a keeper.

Very nice.

The flattop is the small(er) Blackhawk frame, right?

I don't know Agiula Blanca. I have a .44 3 screw I will compare it against.

That looks like the full size Blackhawk to me. I had one just like it many years back except mine had the 7-12" barrel. But it was also a Liberty Blackhawk convertible. I miss it and want to get another.

Very nice.
I've got a couple friends that pooh-pooh the conversion cylinder because they only use .45 Colt (they are avid reloaders) but I like the versatility and if you ever decide to sell it I think it'll get you a better price.

Looking forward to your range report.

Also, as I've mentioned before, I got to shoot a Ruger Blackhawk with Pachmayer grips once and really preferred them although I agree they kind of spoil the traditional look of the gun.

Someone asked about frame sizes. I thought I posted this earlier. 1976 in .45 Long Colt and a 1969 3 screw in .44 Mag side by side.

Blackhawks

Range report coming if it ever stops raining more than an hour and hopefully warms up a bit.

If $4k is too much, Freedom Arms is a bargain.

Yes, it’s expensive but quality and accuracy are second to none and you can have it built exactly for you.

It will hold its value, too.

Before I bought this there was an 83 Premier .454 Cassul on gunsamerica $1700, money order only, zero feedback. A bargain, if you could look past the 'too good to be true' and the fact the seller would not respond to any messages. I really wanted that one to work out.
