  1. I thought that I'd tap the knowledge of this group of shooters as to what their experience has been with a Ruger New Model Blackhawk Convertible in .45 Colt + 45 acp. I'm thinking that this should be my next gun purchase, but I'd like to hear from folks who have them and what their experience has been. Like many of you I have both .45 Colt guns as well as .45 acp guns and I always like the capability of using one gun for multiple calibers. So are there anythings that I should be aware of? My first choice would be a stainless model with the 4.62" barrel and second choice would be the same g
  2. A fellow cowboy shooter suggested I take my 550 to Dillon for a "refurbish", they did a great job and fast. Well worth it. Buckeye Pete
  3. Cherokee Slim,


    That is a fine looking holster.  I'm looking for one to carry a Ruger Old Army with a 7.5" barrel with adjustable sights.  It looks like your holster might fit my ROA.  How much are you looking to get out of it?

  4. I have a flash suppressor for a M3 grease gun that goes to anyone who has an M3. I know it isn't cowboy, and don't ask why or how I got it! The flash suppressor for the M3 grease gun is on it's way to a new home, and yes it was sent as a freebie! Buckeye Pete
  5. J Bar,


    Due to medical issues, I might be thinning the herd and/or retiring from CAS.  My primary match guns used to be a matched set of Ruger Old Model Vaqueros in stainless, 4 5/8 barrels and .44-40 caliber.  They have the original boxes and stuff you find in the boxes.  The only things done were a set of wolf springs and gunfighter grips.  I've only shot black powder in them.  They are in good condition..


    I know that you stay up on prices, what would you think they could/would sell for?

      In '06 & '07, I bought three blue 4 5/8" .44-40 Vaqueros for $300, $300, and $350. I sold them in '08 & '09 for $450 and $925 for a pair. I sold a 5 1/2" stainless version to a cousin last year for $550, but he's family and already had a matching one. I've still got three blue 5 1/2"ers, and they would bring $600 ea easily enough. There's a stainless 4 5/8"er on Gunbroker right now with no reserve and five days to go currently at $456, and it'll go up, of course. A blued 7 1/2"er is priced at $950, Buy It Now, and a 4 5/8" blued is priced at $950, Buy It Now - both from the same seller. Another 7 1/2" blued one is priced at $1050, Buy It Now. Someone's going to have to really, really, really want one of these to pay $950 and $1050, used. Start high - you can always come down!

      J Bar,


      I was thinking somewhere in the $1300 to $1400 range would be a fair deal.  Thanks for the assessment!

  8. Howdy, I have a nice Browning Hi Power made in 1973. It came with Pachmayer grips, but I'd like to find a set of original style wood grips in good or better condition. Anybody have some that they would be willing to sell? Let me know. Thank you. Buckeye Pete
  9. When I shot my Ruger Old Armies, the T/C plastic snail capper worked very well. I tried the brass types but didn't have much luck with them. Buckeye Pete
