Lipsey's and Ruger hits another one out of the park! Five-shot Ruger Super Blackhawks Bisley models in either .454 Casull or .480 Ruger.

Mine is in .454 Casull and may be the absolute best out-of-the-box Super Blackhawk I've ever shot...and I have shot a LOT of them! Heck, I own a lot of them...

Full report with video on DRTV this evening; impressions of the new guns on the podcast this week!

Here are the specs:

Material: Stainless Steel
Barrel Length: 6.5 Inches
Weight: 50.4 (.454), 49.2 (.480 Ruger)
Twist: .454 1:24” RH ​​; .480 Ruger, 1:18” RH
Capacity: 5
Finish: Satin Stainless
Rear Sight: Adjustable
Front Sight: Pinned Black Blade
Overall Length: 12.4”
Grips: Bisley Hardwood

Trigger pull on my gun averages out at a little over 3.5 pounds

Michael, I hope you're planning on devoting a substantial portion of this week's podcast these bad boys. I'd imagine there are many listeners like myself who have inundated Ruger with requests for this to be a factory offering. We need all the details on these.

Wow!.. these weigh more than half what my light weight AR carbine weighs!... I need to start lifting weights!

Would love to have one but the Bisley just doesn't work for me. Would like to see a Hunter version with the standard "plow" grip.
