Editor’s Note:

The Ruger Blackhawk combines the traditional western-style features of the single-action revolvers of old with new technology to provide the ultimate refinement of the single-action platform. A transfer bar mechanism, combined with the loading gate, allows for safe operation and safe carry of the revolver with all chambers loaded. A cold hammer-forged barrel and target sights, in conjunction with a crisp trigger, allow for a great degree of accuracy to help deliver magnum levels of power whether you are target shooting or hunting.

By The Numbers - Ruger Blackhawk

The Blackhawk is a very accurate single-action revolver.
Ruger single-action Blackhawks are the M1 Abrams of the mainstream production revolver world.
Aftermarket is limited to mostly grips and a few optics mounting options.
The ergos of a single-action revolver are simple, but they work. The plow handle grip allows a good grip on the gun while helping to take recoil out of the picture.

Hands-On Reviews & Related Post

final verdict

“Are revolvers old-fashioned? Of course. That’s the point — “old-fashioned” still works, and it puts venison in the freezer. If you’re a shooter who has learned to shoot only handguns of the self-shucking variety, give the Ruger Blackhawk a look.” – Mike Hardesty
