Pistols and Revolvers

Recommended Posts

Sunny Morning here on the left coast, headed out to the range with several of my favorite shooters. Then to the shop for a less favorite sport, cleaning. (Damn those wheel guns have a lot of holes!)

260g Freedom Arms FP bullet out the pointy end at just under 1850 FPS. Enough room in the cylinder for 2100 FPS worth of case and powder but this is plenty brutal enough on the cowboy gun sized frame!

It is one of the nicest shooting "out of the box" 45's on the market. I fitted the ambi safety, other then that nothing. Has cycled everything I've thrown at it. Stupid tight offhand groups at 50 yards. The milling inside the top of the slide is really rough looking, I mean really rough. Other then that no criticism.

Keeping my eye out for an old Ruger Blackhawk 3 screw in .357...

This is my regular hunting sidearm. I also have a slightly older Super BH in .44mag (2 or 3 digit SN)

Sweet! Love old Rugers

Besides the Hamilton I have an early 44 Flat Top BH, un converted,  a 44 SBH and a 45 Colt/ ACP BH convertible 3 screw, both lawyered up but have the original parts also. (Also a couple single sixes, 22/ 22mag)  Do you know if they made a .357/ 9mm convertible in a 3 screw? I had a new model 357/9mm convertible but didn't like it, traded it off.
