I Don't Need It, and I Shouldn't Have Bought It...
...but the sad little lost puppy needed a home!
In this case, the lost puppy is an original Ruger Flat-top .357 Blackhawk. This little revolver, circa the late 1950s, has not been converted to the transfer bar system and shows only minor holster wear. I'd put it at 90-plus percent. The stag grips are original, an $8.50 option from the factory at the time the revolver was made.
I had originally eyed it as another Hamilton Bowen or Dave Clement .44 Special conversion platform, but it may be in too good a shape for that.
I'm going to post a link on the Sixgunner forum and ask those honest-to-goodness experts for their opinion.
At least the little Ruger is safe at home now!
