I have 4 SBHs. 3 were 7.5" and are now 5.5". I like the balance and feel of the 5.5" much better. Easier to carry and shoot just as good as the 7.5". Sure I loose some fps with 2" less barrel but all that means is you just shoot a little better and get a little closer. Its good for me but not everyone.

Ruger probably sold every one they built, but it was always a mystery to me why Ruger waited DECADES before offering anything other than the 7.5" (and a small run of 10") Super Blackawks, when they offered multiple barrel lengths on Blackhawks.

If I were doing it over, today, I'd probably choose the 5.5" myself.
All else being equal (and it almost never is) bigger bullets tend to work better.

Yep, I don't understand why they don't make the 5.5" in a Bisley...

I'm either going to buy a 5.5" or 7.5" stainless and make it into a Bisley.
