  1. I wanted one before the movie came out, was saving up, and there was about a year long wait. Movie came out, four year wait, didn't want to wait that long, kinda got over it. Built an 1885 high wall instead.
  2. Old Army's never made much money for Ruger, not a big seller. Story I always heard was it was Bill's favorite gun, and he said that it would be made as long as he was alive. Bill died, kids took over, sold out, bean counters killed the Old Army. By my research they made about 200,000 between 1972 and 2008, about 5500/yr for 36 years. Old model .357 Blackhawks, about 240,000 between 1959 and 1973, about 17,000/yr for 14 years. Old model Super Blackhawks, about 100,000 between 1959 and 1973, about 7,000/yr for 14 years. Old
  3. Not sure about today, but used to be that Ruger would do special runs of just about anything they could, if some distributor committed to buying 2000 guns. Davidson's, Buckeye Sports, etc, all managed to do it. So get 999 of your close friends together, pony up the cash and give Davidson's a call.
  4. After many years of observation, the average shooter who jacks out a live round from the rifle and then attempts to reload, it takes them 7-8 seconds. If they had practiced it and /or expected it, figure 3-4 seconds. I estimate similar times for a pistol reload.
  5. TO's were the spotters back then. 1998 https://youtu.be/b7pbsTlhaRY
  6. Your grip frame is the full size Blackhawk/Vaquero grip. Easy way to tell is the thickness of the bottom. Also you can measure the actual grip panel, full size is 3" from top to bottom(just measured mine). Here is a picture of the short grip frame.
  7. The problem here is you quoted the wrong regulation, notice the words "National Firearms Act". That was passed in 1934 regulating machine guns, silencers, short barrelled rifles, etc., also sometimes called Title II or Class 3. What Cholla is asking about is a Title I gun, those are dealt with differently under this definition: 27 CFR Part 478.11 Meaning of terms. Antique firearm. (a) Any firearm (including any firearm with a matchlock, flintlock, percussion cap, or similar type of ignition system) manufactured in or before 1898; and (b) any replica of any
  8. FYI. The bolt, recoil spring, recoil spring guide rod, and buffer are all M1 parts, the rest are all M1928A1 parts.
  9. Story I've heard is the best two days in a Cowboy's life is the day he buys a LeMat revolver and the the day he sells the LeMat revolver.
