Thanks everyone I found a set


Recommended Posts

The 3 3/4" Sheriff's model turns up frequently, but the 4 5/8"ers are pretty hard to come by anymore. Barleycorn Outfitters, a vendor here, has a very nice used stainless Sheriff's model in stock, already outfitted with a Super Blackhawk hammer, springs, etc.

Howdy Doc,

 

I purchased one several years ago and paid beaucoup for it.  I think that you will find some, but you better have the stage coach full of gold.  Quick scan of GB showed a couple sheriff's models, and lots of Blackhawks.  Don't know.  Good luck.

I got my 4 5/8" stainless models about 5 years ago when they were still reasonable - $498 for one, and $520 ea for the other two. Dealers had a hard time moving them, I suppose because folks that wanted a .44 wanted a .44 magnum, and partly because .44 spl factory ammo was virtually non-existent. There was a NIB blue 4 5/8" on gunbroker last month that went for only $485 - a surprisingly low price.

Kinda hard to find in 44 special.

I bought 4 Consecutive sets when they first come out .

I sold one set last year for 300@  more then I paid for them .

I wish I would have never sold them .

The other six guns I dont think I will ever part with .

 

I have seen them on Gun brokers on occasion.

But pretty rare and sell fast.

Keep looking they are out there.

 

I also have a pair of the Blackhawk flat top 44 special in 4-5/8.

They are a great option .

There are some of them out there for sale.

I really like them a lot.

With the big front sight they shoot great for Cowboy action shooting.

Just sayin .

Rooster.

PS. I bought a pair of Uberti 71-72 Open Tops in 44 specials.

They are another option for you also.

They shoot great and are a lot of fun .

Thanks Willi, I think the 44 mags were built on the old frame and the 44 specials were on the newer vaquero frame which is a little smaller.   I may wind up having a set made out of a pair of .357 vaqueros.

You won't be sorry, keep looking.  I picked up a pair in southern AZ about 4 years ago, they are my favorites.  That is what i'm loading in my profile picture......

The New Vaquero is not made in .44 mag, but Ruger just re-introduced the .44 magnum on the original, larger frame.

Eh, what up Doc?

Over the years Ive wanted various odd Rugers.

Some were just so hard to find, I gave up on em.

Some I simply had to keep hunting, they are out there.

And yes, sometimes they are a bit pricy.

Rare hardly ever equals cheap. Most pards know what they have.

It wouldn't surprise me one bit if the fastest route wasn't to have a

pair of 357s reworked to 44 spec.

rework 357s to 44 spec. And maybe blast em to a mat finish.

Sounds good. I bet you could sell em any time down the road.

Best

CR
