Default .41 Mag Ruger Blackhawk...Old Model

I've been searching for one of these. I've found a few over the years, but alas...all had the dreaded conversion. .41 Mag is one of my favorite calibers...and 6.5" is a great barrel length...and this one still goes click ~ 4 times.

I broke down and bought a New Model Blackhawk in .41 last year.
It's a short barrelled model with the Bicentennial stamping and aftermarket rubber grips.
I was surprised to find that it had a good trigger. Most of the New Models I've tried didn't live up to the Old Models trigger wise.

Right after I bought it an Old Model showed up, of course. I was too broke to buy it then and haven't seen another.

I wish it had the original box...
Nope, it's been fired a bunch. Fella that had it kept good care of it. I'd put it at about 98-99%. The gunshop that I bought it from was asking $375...

Wow, you did run out and get in the car quickly, right ! ? That price sounds like a steal.
I like the .41 mag, found out about it late in life but have gradually been developing loads for a New Model Blackhawk witha 4-5/8" barrel that I picked up for $300 out the door and thought I did good.
Been shooting 44 mag for years, finding that the .41 will pretty well do as much without quite as much fuss as the .44.
