I do love ruger revolvers

I love the Ruger Revolvers but only in 44 Mag . It must be the Super Blackhawk three screw or new model . Over the years I have bought a lot of Rugers but this week is special .


I found a unfired Ruger Super Blackhawk with the MAG-NA-PORT Predator Package . This Revolver was built in 1989 4,5/8 barrel and it is nice . Four or five years ago I bought a Ruger Super Blackhawk Tomahawk built in 1978 both are as new both 4.5/8 barrels and both built by MAG-NA-PORT .


happy happy happy

Congratulations! New Gun Day (NGD) is something I think we can all appreciate.

(Says Dale who has to go back to the instruction page and start the whole learning process over from scratch every blessed time he wants to post a picture.)

Well, I do like the Super Blackhawk:



But I have a few .45s as well.

Well congrats on the new addition, I'm sure it will be a fine shooter and would like to see a few pictures of it. Mag-na-port builds some nice revolvers and I love my S&W 25 that someone had them build, shoots great and has a smooth action.

While I do enjoy the 44mag Blackhawks (I have a 1958 3 screw 44mag that some one had a 4 5/8 mag-na-ported barrel installed) I prefer a 45Colt Blackhawks even more.


No need to limit yourself to 44mag only, to many good calibers made on the Blackhawk platform to only choose one. I currently have 45's, a 44, a 30 carbine, and two 357's.

The Bottom is the Ruger Tomahawk Made in 1978 for the RCA
Both are Mag-Na-Port

VERY nice guns Keybear, thanks for posting the pictures.

I don't have any ported or compensated guns but I remember when Mag-na-port hit the scene and got pretty good reviews from the gun press. They always said the Mag-na-port folk showed a lot of attention to detail in their work as well as having a neat process for creating the ports.

Thanks also to Bob Wright. Both your pictures and guns are very impressive.

Thanks Dale I did not buy the Tomahawk to shoot (much) so the is porting is OK .
The Predator comes ported and I wish it was not . The Tomahawk is one of 90 made for the RCA .
