Known as one of the most advanced single-actions ever produced, the New Model Blackhawk has a reputation as the best value on the market due to its durability and affordability. Unlike the original Blackhawk, the New Model limits firearms accidents by eliminating the need for the hammer to be half-cocked for loading and unloading and employing a transfer bar mechanism which prevents the cartridge under the hammer from being fired without the trigger being pulled. While retaining the solid frame, feel and comfortable grip of the classic single-actions, the New Model Blackhawk features Ruger's patented transfer bar ignition system with loading-gate interlock, an all-coil spring mechanism, adjustable sights, and a frame-mounted firing pin. With an interchangeable cylinder, Convertible models can be easily converted from one caliber to another without the use of tools. This versatility allows avid shooters of autoloading pistols to enjoy shooting a classic American single-action sidearm with their favorite pistol cartridge. This single-action revolver both a .357 Magnum and a 9MM cylinder as well as both wooden and Pachmayr grips. Its grips and bore are in excellent condition and its metal is in very good condition.
